London, Feb 8 : Emily Blunt found it hard kissing Matt Damon on the set of “The Adjustment Bureau” because it was embarrassing.
The 27-year-old actress had to get up-close with Matt and admits it wasn’t easy because she kept on giggling about it, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
“It comes with the job. By the time Matt and I had become friends and I had got to know his wife Lucy, I laughed the whole time, because it’s so embarrassing to kiss somebody who is your friend,” she said.
The British beauty famously dropped weight to play the role of a nasty secretary in romantic comedy “The Devil Wears Prada” and had to do it again for this movie, although she found it hard because she is such a food fan.
Ben Affleck says he would immediately phone Matt Damon if he ever got into trouble.
The American actors have been friends for years after they grew up in the same neighbourhood and shot to fame in Hollywood after writing and appearing in 1997 movie Good Will Hunting. Even though they are now carving out separate careers in the film industry, they have remained close and run a production company together. Ben knows he can always rely on Matt and he is confident they will be friends for life.
“If I was ever in trouble the one call I’d make would be to Matt Damon,” he said in an interview with British newspaper The Daily Mail. “We’ve been friends for 30 years. I can’t believe I’m old enough to say I’ve had a friend for 30 years. But he is a friend, and a partner in a company we have together. I’ve got to a stage in life where I have learnt who my real friends are. You don’t need many, you just need good, solid friends. My brother, Casey, is another one and my godfather is a really brilliant guy.”
The 38-year-old star has enjoyed success in directing as well as acting in recent years, helming the hit movies Gone Baby Gone and The Town. Even though Ben is currently enjoying a peak in his career, he has vowed to remain grounded. He has seen other Hollywood stars crash and burn and he is under no illusion that success is guaranteed forever.
“The most foolish thing you can do in this industry is to believe in your own success. I’m very happy, but it won’t make me rest on my laurels. I’ve still got more to prove,” he explained.
“Right now I’m a success again but I’ll be a failure again too, and that’s OK. I look at my great heroes as actors and directors and none of them have perfect records. Being number one at the box office is pretty cool. But I’ve been round the block enough times to know it won’t last forever.”
The actor-and-screenwriter says once he has agreed to appear in a movie or has hired a filmmaker for the project he could never get rid of them, even if he didn’t think it was working out, because he’d already committed to the project.
“My movies being really good or watchable always depends on everybody being really good, not just me,” Damon told Men’s Health magazine, “I’m particularly sensitive about making sure we secure the best possible people in each role because I am not somebody who can overcome if we don’t.
“And then, for me, once I make that commitment, I never will sell the director out on that project. You cannot change horses midrace. Even if your horse is losing, you ride the horse as hard and as fast as you can. If there was a mistake made, it was made in your initial decision to work with that person.”
Matt — who is currently starring in thriller The Adjustment Bureau alongside Emily Blunt — also revealed he and writing partner Ben Affleck never take offence when their ideas are criticised by the other person.
“When one of us comes up with an absolutely f**king horrible idea, which happens all the time, the other person, without batting an eyelash, says ‘That’s a terrible idea.’ And neither of us has our feelings hurt, and we just kind of move on,” he said.
Today Kevin Smith did a one-hour live chat with MTV — his first major bit of non-twitter promotion since Red State debuted at Sundance. Quite a few topics were covered, but a couple of the notable mentions had to do with Hit Somebody. That’s the hockey film the director plans to make next — and also the last film he plans to direct — which he likens to the Muppet Movie, by virtue of the fact that there is room for a ton of cameos. As a result, he talks about bringing back everyone he’s ever worked with (“I’m not even ruling out [Bruce] Willis at this point. I’d duck, but I’d put a stick in Willis’ hand”) including Matt Damon and Ben Affleck.
With Smith talking about the film, we’re getting a lot more info. He calls it a valentine or love letter to Canada and to hockey, and reiterates that it is based on a song written by Mitch Albom and performed by Warren Zevon. It is not R-rated, spans the ’50s to the ’80s, and is set in a league of his own devising, so don’t expect NHL licensing. (No budget for that in an indie, anyway.) Smith says the script is at 110 pages now and is only half done. (He calls it “chunky.”) Because it spans so much time, and will feature a number of hockey teams, he’s got room to bring back just about everyone he’s ever cast.
They’re all coming back. It’s like The Muppet Movie. you’ve got your core cast, and then a zillion cameos… It’s going to sum everything up. We’ll have a team in Boston, and who do you think I’m going to call? Both of those dudes.
Much more interesting, however, is the idea that Hit Somebody will ‘sum everything up.’ He explicitly calls it “an analogous tale to my time in film,” and is about a guy “who loves hockey with all his heart, but is no damn good at it. Then he gets his shot.” That’s a pretty big deal — an explicitly reflexive narrative that will be his last as a director. He says it will be a meditation of what happens when your dreams come true. Sounds like a much more striking way to cap off a directorial career than Clerks 3 would be.
Check out the full chat, which is being re-run at MTV. It’s a good talk, with the director in very calm, genial mode. If you’ve had any reaction to the big ‘Smith vs Critics’ conversation of recent months, it might be worth your time to take a look at this chat. With respect to some of the tumultuous conversations that have surrounded him of late, he says that in some ways he wanted to “chum the waters,” and kind of stir things up a while.
MATT Damon feels he has had a lot of “luck” in his career.
The 40-year-old actor — who won an Oscar for his writing skills in 1997 movie Good Will Hunting — is grateful to have had the chances he has had throughout his working life, but also feels gratitude for the jobs he didn’t get.
“I like to think that my choices matter, but I’ve had so much luck in my life that it leaves me wondering,” he said.
“It’s all those things that you wish for at the time and then you realise, ‘Thank God that didn’t happen for me because things worked out so much better.’
“Looking back at myself at 20 going on auditions, I’m so lucky that I didn’t get those parts.”
Matt recently confessed he knew nothing about the fourth Bourne movie — a follow-up to the previous three he has starred in as lead character Jason Bourne — and only read about it on the internet.
“I read online they are doing another Jason Bourne movie with Tony Gilroy directing that I’m not in,” he said.
“No one told me, literally nobody called me. People think I have inside information, but you can get a sense of where I am in the pecking order.”
He’ll also appear alongside Scarlett Johansson in the drama Cameron Crowe is directing at Fox.
John Michael Higgins, one of Hollywood ultimate scene stealers, has joined Matt Damon and Scarlett Johansson in We Bought a Zoo, the true life drama Cameron Crowe is directing at Fox.
The movie is based on a memoir by Benjamin Mee, who used his life savings to buy a dilapidated zoo, replete with 200 exotic animals facing destruction, in the English countryside. Mee, along with his children, had to balance caring for his wife, who was dying of brain cancer, with dealing with escaped tigers, raising endangered animals, working with an eclectic skeleton crew and readying the zoo for a reopening.
Higgins, repped by UTA and Magnolia Entertainment, will play a state zoo inspector cursed with an active and loud stomach who’s got it in for Mee, played by Damon.
Higgins is known for swiping the spotlight in movies such as The Break-Up and Yes Man and TV shows such as Community and Arrested Development.
Zoo’s cast also includes Thomas Hayden Church, Patrick Fugit, Angus Macfadyen and Elle Fanning.
Rick Yorn and Julie Yorn are producing the pic, which transfers the action stateside and begins shooting next week in Los Angeles.
The 40-year-old actor – who has played action hero Jason Bourne in the first three films in the franchise – was incensed not to be told about forthcoming instalment ‘The Bourne Legacy’ but admits he would reprise the role again if director Paul Greengrass would be involved.
He said: “I read online they are doing another Jason Bourne movie with Tony Gilroy directing that I’m not in.
“No one told me, literally nobody called me. People think I have inside information, but you can get a sense of where I am in the pecking order.
“I’d do it again with Paul. Universal doesn’t actually own the Bourne character – the estate does – so technically I could go to Warner Bros… and Universal could read about it online.”
Matt also admitted he is keen to move into directing films, but has not yet found the right project.
He added to Empire magazine: “I’ve been looking but you only get one chance to make a first impression, so I’ve been particularly careful.”
