Matt Damon Gossip

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

Tuesday, December 19, 2006
Dear Gossips, Matt Damon on Larry King last night admitted he takes on another persona, pretends to be someone else – the most boring someone else - during junkets and promotional events because, in his words, the skillset required to make a movie is completely different from the one you use to sell it. According to Matt, “selling a movie” is apparently the most tedious responsibility attached to making one and these days it’s less about the “work” than it is about branding toilet paper, which is why Matt, in all his passive aggressive sanctimony, will strip himself of all personality for interviews, at once beholden to his professional obligations but bucking them at the same time. Bitch…please. Acting is acting no matter who the audience. And while we’re at it, would it kill you to act grateful for the $10 million paycheque and the right to work oh… only 2 or 3 months out of the year? Just asking… Tuesday – live blogging, check back often for updates, new posts will appear at the top of the page, immediately following the opening cut. Yours in gossip, Lainey

A new still from the upcoming Oceans 13 – thanks Chris! Movie comes out summer 2007, apparently much better than the 2nd which was widely panned even by the cast, though I have to ask – was it really that bad? I didn’t think it was all that bad. But I digress. The point is, everyone is happy with the 3rd. Full Story

My favourite story of the day – whether it’s grunting and sweating on the beach, or doing yoga on the beach, or showing off his greasy monkey chest wherever he goes, Matthew McConaughey is endlessly amusing. Currently promoting his new movie We Are Marshall, Matthew is doing press and talking Lance (he admires him for his work fundraising for cancer research) and Penelope (they’re still on good terms, he thinks she should be nominated for Oscar) and his body. Full Story

Some taboid reported the bogus story a few weeks ago - that Jennifer Aniston had expressed interest in Matthew McConaughey. No one bought it at the time but when you think about it...actually, when you look at it, it wouldn"t be a bad match, non?"s a match. He"s so orange he"s practically purple (do you remember that line from Bridget Jones when her parents got back together? Hee. Full Story

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. Full Story

Always have had a soft spot for Minnie. Poor thing had to struggle against being forever the fat girl after Circle of Friends. Poor thing was dumped by Matt Damon on Oprah. Poor thing can"t find lasting love. Poor thing butted heads with Babs. Apparently there"s a new beau…and it shows. Check out Minnie last night at an event for Randolph Duke. Full Story

The reigning People Magazine Sexiest Man Alive. There HAS to be a curse. If there was no curse, how can you explain his sharp summer decline? Looking bad is one thing. Desperately craving attention, oozing sleaze, oily and pervy... Matthew McConaughey is totally revolting. Here is at LAX the other day, compensating for the recession with that nasty ass overgrown beard. Full Story

Handicapping the Sexiest Man Alive

Around this time every year for the last 3 years, I have made my prediction for People Magazine"s Sexiest Man Alive. As it stands, I"m 2 for 3 with Jude Law as the only aberration and accurately naming Matthew McConaughey six weeks in advance 12 months ago. Sorry for the gloat. Anyway, it"s about that time again, although I"m not sure anyone wants to claim the title anymore. Full Story

My Prediction: Matt Damon

Like I said - a super long shot and in poker terms, Matt Damon is holding Pocket 2s against Patrick"s Pocket Rockets and George"s Cowboys. But there is no glory in playing it safe. I think this is his year: Arguments for: 1. He"s a new husband and a new father - check check for the MiniVan Majority 2. Full Story

Pro-love for Jen & Matt

Now here"s a couple I could FULLY support...not that the ridiculous reports in Life & Style Weekly are worthy of your confidence - remember, Brad was calling Jen for a reconciliation 3 weeks ago, right? Oh yes, and TomKat was supposed to be finished by now. But let"s not harp on the details. The point is - Jennifer Aniston and Matthew McConaughey are crystal clear logic. Full Story


The Favour: please check archives for previous guesses. Not Jamie Foxx though I suppose the giver does have some musical inclinations. And not Leo D because Leo D is much more influential and also unattached. Same goes for Matthew McConaughey, hirsute in all the wrong places. Fresh smut soon. Til then, I am yours in gossip, Lainey
