Aug 31 Damon dumps toilet water over head for ALS 0
Filed in: Charitable Causes , General News

Matt Damon has once again proved his nice-guy reputation, by taking the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge and throwing toilet water over his head to support not one, but two issues.

Damon says he was torn after being nominated by Ben Affleck and Jimmy Kimmel to take the challenge, which raises awareness and money for ALS, known as motor neurone disease (MND) in Australia.

In the challenge, people are asked to donate to the cause within 24 hours of being nominated, or dump a bucket of icy water over themselves as punishment.

In the case of many celebrities, it has been to do both to raise even more awareness.

The problem for Damon was that aside from California being in drought, he’s also the co-founder of water.org, a non-profit organisation that aims to bring clean water and sanitation to the developing world.

“So dumping a clean bucket of water on my head seemed a little crazy,” he says in a video.

Hence the toilet water.

In the video, Damon begins scooping up water from one of the toilets in his home and dumping it into a nearly full bucket of icy water.

“This is truly toilet water. I’ve been collecting it form various toilets around the house,” he says, picking up the bucket and heading outside.

By using toilet water, Damon hopes to draw attention to the lack of safe water and sanitation in the developing world.

“For those of you like my wife who think this is really disgusting, keep in mind that the water in our toilets in the west is actually cleaner than the water that most people in the developing world have access to,” he says.

“So as disgusting as this may seem, hopefully it’ll highlight the fact that this is a big problem and together we can do something about it.”

Damon then threw the bucket over his head and nominated George Clooney, US muso Bono, and American football quarterback Tom Brady.

Aug 14 Matt Damon was “lucky to know” Robin Williams 0
Filed in: General News

Like much of Hollywood, Matt Damon is mourning Robin Williams, with whom he co-starred in the Academy Award-winning film, “Good Will Hunting.”

“Robin brought so much joy into my life and I will carry that joy with me forever,” Damon told Us Weekly on Tuesday. “He was such a beautiful man. I was lucky to know him and I will never, ever forget him.”

Damon’s co-star, Ben Affleck, said he was “heartbroken” in a statement via his Facebook Tuesday. “Thanks chief-for your friendship and for what you gave the world,” he said. “Robin had a ton of love in him. He personally did so much for so many people. He made matt and my dreams come true.”

Williams, Damon and Affleck all won Oscars for their work in the 1997 film. While Williams earned the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor, Damon and Affleck took home Oscars for Best Original Screenplay.

Apr 30 Matt Damon and Ben Affleck bring back “Project Greenlight” 0
Filed in: General News

Matt Damon and Ben Affleck are bringing back “Project Greenlight.”

The stars served as executive producers of the documentary series, which ran for two seasons in 2001 and 2003 on HBO.

Now the real-life friends are bringing it back to HBO for a new season that will chronicle the challenges facing a first-time director. The show will kick off with a digital contest, before following the documentary winner from pre-production and casting through principal photography and post-production.

“‘Project Greenlight’ was ahead of its time,” said Affleck. “Now that technology has caught up to the concept, we thought it was a perfect time to bring it back. A whole new generation of filmmakers has grown up sharing everything, and the next big director could be just an upload away.”

Damon added, “‘Project Greenlight’ works — careers have been launched and sustained as a direct result of this contest. Pete Jones, John Gulager, Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan are just a few of the PGL alums who’ve gone on to do great things in Hollywood, and Ben and I are really proud of that.”

The new season is being produced for HBO by Adaptive Studios, Affleck and Damon’s Pearl Street Films and Miramax.

Feb 23 Matt Damon: I relax with karaoke and know all the songs to The Little Mermaid 0
Filed in: General News

Matt Damon has a surprise love for karaoke.

The Elysium actor admits that belting out tunes after a hard day’s work helps him to unwind, especially if he can get other people involved.

‘[I relax by] going to karaoke on a double date with my wife Luciana,’ says Matt, 43.

‘One time we bumped into Jeremy Renner and dragged him with us. And Renner can sing.

‘Although we didn’t care if he could sing, we just wanted to hang out with him.’

Matt – who is a father to Isabella, 7, Gia, 5, and Stella, 3, as well as being a stepdad to Luciana’s daughter Alexia, 14 – has learned some pretty girly tunes along the way.

‘I know all the songs to The Little Mermaid,’ the doting dad tells Notebook.

‘Only because I have four daughters, you understand.’

Jan 16 George Clooney Pulls Pants Prank on Matt Damon 0
Filed in: General News

One thing we love about George Clooney and Matt Damon is their history of playing pranks on each other. During an episode of The Tonight Show With Jay Leno, Damon revealed an elaborate prank Clooney played on him while filming The Monuments Men together. Damon became concerned when his pants became tighter despite working out, but as it turns out, he wasn’t piling on the pounds–Clooney was having his pants taken in.

Matt Damon talked about a few topics with Leno last night, including his first Tonight Show appearance where he promoted Good Will Hunting and his The Monuments Men co-star George Clooney. Not surprisingly, some of his chatter about Clooney had to do with pranks. Clooney is known for playing pranks on his Hollywood cohorts, and he managed to pull off one of his best pranks ever on Damon.

During filming for The Monuments Men, which opens February 7, Damon noticed that his pants were getting snug, which was puzzling since he was working out with Clooney. While working out would give most people a little more breathing room in their pants, Damon’s pants just kept getting tighter, and he had no idea why. “I just thought, ‘This can’t be,’” Damon told Leno.

The truth finally came out, but not until after Damon and Clooney finished filming the movie. “I read finally, which answered a lot for me, that [Clooney] had been taking my pants in by about an eighth or a sixteenth of an inch every couple of days,” Damon said. ”I never said anything to him which, of course, he probably loved even more.”

Interestingly enough, even though Damon was never able to put two and two together, he had suspected Clooney of a similar prank a couple years before.

“A couple of years ago I hadn’t been working out and I’d got kind of fat,” Damon said. “I had to go to a function and when I tried on my suit, it was too tight. My immediate thought was that my buddy George Clooney had hired someone to get into my closet and cut down my clothes. I seriously thought that until my wife said, very gently, said ‘Do you think it might be that you’ve put on some weight?’”

Apr 14 Matt & Luciana Renew Vows with Island Party 0
Filed in: General News , Personal News

Matt Damon and his wife of nearly eight years, Luciana Barroso, renewed their vows Saturday on the beautiful Caribbean island of St. Lucia, reports Us Weekly, with approximately 50 friends and family in attendance including best bud Ben Affleck and wife Jennifer Garner.

Damon rented out the island’s entire Sugar Beach Resort at a reported six-figure price, according to Us, and exchanged vows at sunset under thatched roofs in a 15-minute ceremony. The groom wore a tan-colored suit and flip-flops, while the bride wore a cream-colored gown with a sequined belt, with the couple’s daughters in light-colored dresses to match their mother.

The approximately 50 guests, which included Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones (according to People.com), wore shades of cream and ivory and enjoyed a cocktail reception on the beach following the vow renewal.

Damon first married Barroso, a former bartender, in a private civil ceremony back in December 2005, and sources tell Us that the star and his bride have wanted to throw a larger celebration with family and friends for quite some time.
