Matt Damon: Will Team America hurt his chances?

You know he’s my prediction right? For People Magazine’s Sexiest Man Alive? Totally a long shot but I’m holding fast, though I do worry about the Team America thing. Have you seen it? One of the funniest bits in the movie is the way they make fun of Matt Damon – he pops up randomly and the only thing he does is say his name… “Matt Damon!” for absolutely no reason. Kills me. I suppose the implication is that he’s a tool. And worse yet, they do this thing with his lips – smushed together, swollen – it’s weird and creepy but oddly…not too far off. Check out Matt the other night at the UK premiere of Hollywoodland, out to support Ben. Compare to Matt Damon from Team America. Can’t argue with Stone and Parker, can you? Will the Team America Mouth destroy Matt Damon’s chances at the SMA? Or will the allegations of McDreamy’s wifebeating past balance things out? I’m sticking with Damon – though now that I know People Magazine (or at least their Vancouver stringer) lifts from my column, maybe they’ll make it Clooney after all. Source
