Matt Damon Gossip
Matt Damon gossip, latest news, photos, and video.
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!

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
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

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

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

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
