Matt Damon News Column
  • A Gawker sighting is below. There was apparently some paparazzi footage of Matt on the set of Margaret on E News Tuesday:

    Saw Matt Damon Saturday afternoon at 12th & 2nd shooting a movie called “Margaret” (according to the NO PARKING signs). We walked by the catering table and I was going to say, “Hey, give me some food!” to whatever random person was standing around, but I got out “Hey!” and then found myself face-to-face with the talented Mr. Ripley himself. Surprisingly, he cheerfully said hi back, made eye contact, smiled. He’s much more attractive in person (looks like a male skilletface on film sometimes) and was pretty tan (make up?)

  • Here's another Bourne-like (and not afraid to say it) project announced today at Coming Soon:

    Davis Entertainment has pre-emptively bought Stephen Hauser's spec The Mistaken, says The Hollywood Reporter.

    Described as in the vein of The Fugitive and The Bourne Identity, the story centers on an American man who becomes a terrorism suspect while traveling with his family.

    Having had the chance to meet Matt in person, I can definitely agree that he looks even better in person! =D On film, he does occasionally look a little ... odd. But in person, stunning!

    In early 2000, my sister worked at Louise's Trattoria in LA, and Matt and Steven Soderbergh were eating lunch there. She called me on her break and told me to haul ass over there. They were closing their tab when I got there, so I respectfully approached, and said I just wanted to say hi and that I was a fan of his work. He gave me the trademark smile and said thanks, he appreciated it. Chit chatted for a second, and then I said bye. I didn't want to be like "OMG SIGN STUFF! TAKE PICTURES WITH ME! HAVE MY BABIES!" =D Short and sweet. Unforgettable.

    You are so lucky. I am soooooooooooo jealous of you. To meet him, is my dream. You really have the guts to go up to him and say hi. I'll faint or gasp for air. I don't know. All I know that I'll be not myself then.

    BTW there is this guy who my parents want me to get married with. I first objected because he is real short. But when I heard he has been recently transferred to his BOSTON branch, I immediately said YEEEEEEEEEEEES!!!
    Am I a hypocrite?

    I kept changing my mind! At first, I was too nervous. Then I realized I would never get the chance again, and I got all excited, so I almost rushed right up to start freaking out! But I didn't want to be "that" crazy fan and ruin his lunch. So I thought about what to say, and waited till that perfect moment where I wouldn't interrupt them. I was nervous and giddy, but I had to do it! Once in a lifetime chance.

    haha! But he doesn't live in Boston anymore! =p

    How intelligent of you. I can feel how precious that moment must have been for you. Did you sleep that night?

    I live in the East. Boston, New York and Miami are all same for me. I have never been to the US. Atleast I can see His and Ben's house and that famous chair in that famous park. BTW that guy is a good man.

    Saw Courage Under Fire. He was so thin yet those blue eyes were so piercing. He gave an awesome perfomance. Washington is one of my favs but Matt stole every seen he had with him. How old was he when he did this film?

    haha. Not much! I was too busy calling people and telling them the story!

    Oh, I see. =D

    Well, it came out in 96', so he would have been 25 or 26 during filming.

    Nice story - thanks for sharing it with us.

    It's my favorite story to tell! hehe!
    From: (Anonymous) Date: March 29th, 2006 06:10 pm (UTC) (Link)
    Odd?? How so, and it what movies in your opinion? I think he's hotter than hot in everything he does.

    From: (Anonymous) Date: March 30th, 2006 08:27 am (UTC) (Link)
    Oh I think so too! Don't get me wrong. I guess odd isn't the right word. I just meant he looks way better in person, and "odd" was just meant to mean that he looks VERY different on screen than in real life, which I'm sure is true of any actor.

    The tan is likely because he's living in Miami now.

    Is it true that JLo is in talks to be in Ocean13?

    No. There's a major role still to be cast, apparently, but it would be incredibly unlikely to be her (and Ellen Barkin is said to be the female lead).

    So it's rumored at Jo Blo. I still think it's very unlikely (doesn't George Clooney hate her?)
