Dear Gossips,

George Clooney is getting married this weekend. Canals in Venice will be shut down. By Monday the city will start floating on Casamigos Tequila.

Here’s Matt Damon arriving with his wife Luciana. If Damon’s there, I can’t imagine John Krasinski and Emily Blunt not being there. I’ll post more photos as they become available through the day… if I don’t get distracted by my birthday.

Celebrating a birthday is always an excuse to take it easy. But celebrating your birthday on a Friday? It would be almost UNNATURAL to work too hard on a birthday Friday. But you still go to work. Always go to work on your birthday if it’s a weekday. Because then everyone has to be nice to you AND you get a free pass to f-ck around.

Have a great weekend!

Yours in gossip,

Lainey

Looking good, Matt Damon

Matt Damon was one of the celebrity speakers at the Clinton Global Initiative in New York today. Damon has been actively involved in raising awareness and support for those who do not have access to clean water and sanitation in developing countries. The statistic he’s shared many times, quite powerfully, is that “more people in the world have a cellphone than access to a toilet. Full Story

There are a lot of fans of Matt Damon out there. But Matt Damon doesn’t make himself available too often for pap shots…even though, ahem, he lives very close to the Afflecks. This is another conversation. Here’s Matt Damon out for dinner in Brentwood last night. They keep putting his name on the reported list of celebrity guests to George Clooney’s wedding. Full Story

Once upon a time, Matt Damon went in hard against Bourne trilogy screenwriter Tony Gilroy. For a couple years he trash-talked Gilroy, taking no pains to hide his animosity, and said he’d never do another Bourne movie so long as Gilroy was involved. Full Story

So…this appeared on Instagram last night: See, that’s the kind of gossip I’m talking about. Good Gossip. Not that we should believe what we read on Twitter and Instagram, of course not. It’s just… a kind of random story for a random person to make up. Full Story

There's a war going on between Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, and George Clooney. It started at the Golden Globes. One of their best jokes was about Clooney and Gravity -- how he'd rather float off into space and die than talk to a woman his own age. The entire ballroom erupted. They loved it. And George took it well. Full Story

“We gotta move”

That’s a line from this new Monuments Mens trailer that was just released. And it could apply to the film’s awards season strategy too. They have to move. They have to move now because otherwise 12 Years A Slave will walk away with it. If they want to give 12 Years a run at all, they have to move. Full Story

Yesterday when I wrote about Channing Tatum being pleasant and, ugh, really likeable all over Chicago, I called him the new Matt Damon. And then last night the real Matt Damon turned up on The Colbert Report to remind us all what being Matt Damon is like —funny and personable and really, really humble. Full Story

If you’re into Matt Damon, this will only make you love him more. He’s currently promoting Elysium. Was at Letterman yesterday. But he was also on Univision recently. I don’t know why there’s a chihuahua called Halle Berry sitting on his lap. I do know however that Halle Berry’s bewildered expression says it all, as she enjoys a 5 minute ear stroking from a big Hollywood star who gamely plays along. Full Story

Neill Blomkamp’s Elysium was featured on a recent issue of Entertainment Weekly. Jess Cagle writes in the editor’s note that many of the box office disappointments this year were unoriginal movies. Even the ones who weren’t sequels, like The Lone Ranger and After Earth, were basically just recycled versions of the stars’ previous releases. Full Story

Matt Damon was at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln today for student orientation. Apparently he’s the “parent, guardian, or mentor” to a young man, reportedly his nephew. According to school officials, he asked to be given no special treatment whatsoever, preferring to take the campus tour as every other “parent, guardian, or mentor” does. Full Story

George Clooney and Matt Damon were in the English countryside continuing work on The Monuments Men. The photo agency has labelled the other dude as Jean Dujardin...but that doesn’t look like him to me. You? Anyway, what a great opportunity to segue back, again, to Behind The Candelabra. Full Story
