  • I linked earlier an article about a young musician in The Good Shepherd. From Acorn Online, here's a picture of Kiera Wood with Matt on set.

  • Gossip about The Good Shepherd from nypress.com (unknown date):

    Not so good shepherdess

    A Dope Peddler source working on location on the highly anticipated Matt Damon-CIA movie The Good Shepherd says that the film is struggling with the huge error of casting actress Angelina Jolie in the part of Damon's wife. Set in part in the 1950s, the film asks us to accept that Jolie's character is a homemaker of the era. Our mole reports: "Forget the Oscar that she won. She isn’t all that much of an actress, and this was just way too much of a stretch." The producers are hoping they can solve the problem in the editing room.

  • Here's an old quote from Jeanne Wolf's column after the Grimm premiere in August (which partly answers a question raised in the comments section some weeks back):

    Matt Damon, on his engagement to Argentine Luciana Barroso: "We haven't started the wedding planning stuff yet, so being engaged is all fun so far. I am learning Spanish slowly but surely. I had to start from scratch because the language she speaks is completely different than the Spanish I had learned from Mexico."

  • It's not really news, but an item from Seattle Business Journal is below. The link to the In Style poll was here:

    "In Style Celebrity Weddings," on ABC Jan. 30, featured results of its online contest to decide the best wedding ring in a group of six high-profile marriages. Actor Matt Damon's pick for his bride Luciana Barroso won hands down -- a classic, three-stone, platinum and diamond showstopper he personally chose last summer from Bellevue jeweler Steven Goldfarb. The couple tied the knot officially in a secret New York ceremony in December.

    Not at all surprised, here.

    Doesn't look like he was quite ready for that photo to be taken ...

    I never did understand why she was cast in the first place ... there are 100 actresses more qualified/well-suited for that role than Angelina.

    I would love to hear him habla Espanol! Maybe he can use it in a role or something ...

    Not suprising ... it is a gorgeous ring!

    Not so good sheperdhess

    If this rumour is true I have to agree. She looks completely wrong for the role. I think her range as an actress is very limited, I've never seen her be anything but average in a movie. How she won an Oscar I'll never know. In the latest movie I've seen her in Mr & Mrs Smith she is truly appalling. The only saving grace in that movie was that Brad Pitt was even worse.

    She must have a very good agent to keep getting her such high profile roles.

    Daddy Voight probably bought her Oscar win in hopes she might "get well," but instead she just got crazier.

    I don't know though if you think it's newsworthy or not.

    That's waaay old news. Thought he said it wasn't true too.


    HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!!

    That Minnie Driver / Oprah thing was not true at all. They had broken up two weeks before that; even Minnie's sister spoke out about it. Minnie *finally* did admit (much later) that it wasn't true, but that rumour still haunts Matt to this day, as this post proves.

    I firmly believe this is one reason why he is so close mouthed about his private life today. That was an early lesson, and must have been very hurtful to hear himself so falsely slandered.

    What the hell is up with his lip. Someone must have given him some weird kind of kiss or something. Oh well he's still really hot.

    lips

    I thought maybe he was wearing a plate or false teeth for the role. I'm not too sure why, but that is the explanation I came up with.

    Matt's lips are his most attractive physical attribute. Just my opinion.

    Ouch! I don't like the woman, but as an actress I have to say thats a burn I wouldn't wish on anybody. Also, no matter how good or bad her performance is, I doubt they'll cut much of her work. The people who love her and the people who hate her still consider her a big box office draw.
