Because he's impossible to hate. Or maybe I just don't have the same kind of hate gene a lot of you have.
I get some of the DL hates. I agree with some of them, even (ironically, I can't STAND Matt's BFF). But Matt Damon seems like someone I could be friends with. I'm no movie encyclopedia, but I don't think I've never seen him play a character I didn't like. Matt Damon seems like a mensch.
Some of you hate on people who don't seem the least bit hateworthy. Matt is at the top of that list, followed by Jake Gyllenhaal.
I save my hatred for people who deserve it, mainly politicians and religiofascists. And Ben Affleck.
I am still convinced that most - if not all - of Good Will Hunting was all Ben Affleck.
I really like Damon as an actor, but I was disappointed with his comment on the DVD extras to Behind the Candelabra:
"I'm glad the intimate scenes were done in one take. I couldn't have handled any more."
I thought he was better than the "I'm so super straight, gay sex makes me sick" protestations.
Do you think the Damon butt is still some sweet stuff?
I never knew that, R12. Perhaps I need to rethink my opinion of Matt Damon. OTOH, I wouldn't want to spend a whole lot of time in bed with Michael Douglas *.
* I didn't see the movie, so I have no idea how many sex scenes were actually filmed in a bed.
I don't do butt, R13. I've never actually noticed Matt's.
I forgot to sign my post at r14.
CZJ, I thought you were a perennial 35.

This. Would a gay actor feel really comfortable doing similar scenes with, say, Jane Fonda?
Poor Kirk at r17 also still thinks he's married to Diana and calls ME Diandra. The tragedy of dementia! I hear it can he hereditary.
R18: You are laughably naive.
If it were about the age of the costar, no actor would be rude or unprofessional enough to suggest they were repulsed by their costar because they are old.
But it is OK to remind everyone you find gay stuff icky.
It's probably really hard to turn down a voiceover gig. They are a paid huge sum to just read a pre-prepared script. A big star will make hundreds of thousands for about six hours' work in a recording studio. The astounding income:effort and income:time ratios make it too compelling to resist.
I always liked Matt Damon. Talented actor, seems like a nice guy, and in my opinion he has a large, womanly butt.
I think Matt was making the comment regarding the sex scene in light of being with Michael Douglas specifically and in light of Matt's own inadequacies and inexperience. He said in an interview (I'll try to find it) that he wasn't sure he'd be able to simulate it correctly and that he wasn't sure whether his body was adequate for the part.
Who are these people saying Damon is "talented" as an actor?????
No, he's NOT talented, he's wooden as hell.
BS he can watch gay porn can't he??? WTF?! It's not THAT hard! PLEEASE. You apologists make me sick.
He's starting to look like Michael C. Hall. Not a good thing in my opinion.
No actors like doing sex scenes and are usually grateful when they're over.
Yes he is, r24. That's why he got cast in The TALENTED Mr. Ripley. Cause, you know, he's talented.
Particularly with Michael Douglas, r27.
Matt Damon has three kids with another one on the way, a lazy wife who doesn't work or do jack shit, and they all live in Manhattan. That costs a bloody fortune, so he has take as many gigs as he can get.
He has four kids, all girls. The oldest is the wife's child with her first husband. I haven't read anything about her being pregnant again. Although, it wouldn't surprise me. You know he wants a boy. If just to keep up with Afflack.
I know Matt but not well. He is at best an acquaintance yet he has shown me unlimited kindness and generosity and has helped me tremendously. I am in no position to return the favor, yet, but would not hesitate to do so if I was able to. There was nothing in it for him to help me. He just liked something I wrote. His wife is lovely, well educated and their children have wonderful manners and are completely unaffected. They have a Latin charm from Lucy and a New England sensibility from Matt. He is also very, very smart as is Ben, and they are both extremely funny. There are good guys in this world, even in Hollywood. Nobody who knows Matt would disagree with anything I've written here.
[quote]If it were about the age of the costar, no actor would be rude or unprofessional enough to suggest they were repulsed by their costar because they are old.
Yes, there are plenty of rude assholes who would suggest such a thing. For instance Leonardo Dicaprio recently made a whole thing about having to kiss 67 year old Joanna Lummley in the upcoming Wolf of Wallstreet.
R32, what comments have he or others made about his ass? What does it look like in person? Is he aware of people admiring his ass and/or the comments about its size? Thank you.
They don't live in Manhattan anymore. They moved to Santa Monica this summer, down the street from Ben. And Matt's owned his two Manhattan properties since prior to getting married, anyway.
Y'all are so icky!
Why icky, R36?
I thought it was Pacific Palisades, R35.
Close enough r38. The Affleck kid goes to Carlthorp school.
And what about Chris Hardwicke? You can't get away from his face or his voice on television.
Matt is one of the few normal stars in Hollywood, and very generous with his time towards the fans (unlike Affleck, Clooney or Brad Pitt). He's always avoided any kind of scandal, he's very in love with Lucy, and he enjoys his family.
His wife looks like a rabbit.
He renewed his vows this year. That's always a harbinger of impending divorce.
What did Leo diCaprio say about Joanna Lumley?
I may have to hate him now.
"What did Leo diCaprio say about Joanna Lumley?"
Leonardo said something about Lumley?? What a fucking tool!
Matt can no longer carry a movie on his own. He needs to be part of an ensemble. Elysium, Promised Land, etc. Not big moneymakers and will at best break even. He is great as part of George Clooney's entourage. In fact he is rapidly becoming the "Turtle" of that group.
In my opinion, Damon has a large, womanly butt.
I was just wondering if any of you think Damon has a large womanly butt?
Apparently R61 does, R62.
But does he have a womanly butt? That's all i want to know.
Does Bob Dylan need money? I just saw a Kohl's commercial that used "Forever Young."
Why so curious R62/R64. R61 apparently thinks so. Do you? If so, why do you think that?
I am still not following you. Does he have a womanly butt or not?
Or is that Ben Affleck has a manly butt so in comparison and by deduction, that would leave Matt to be the possessor of a womanly butt?
Oh, the Butt-manity!
Robert Redford and Gene Hackman have also done VoiceOver work for United Airlines.
