Matt Damon is Boring?

Matt was caught with his wife Luciana and daughter Isabella in Madrid yesterday. He has been busy filming his latest Bourne movie overseas. As you can tell, Matt may be known as the nice guy, but he's not one to pose for the cameras. The actor tells Details that he actually tries to keep a low profile even if it means being boring. Matt seems to think the press has hurt his career in the past and is pretty hard on himself about it. In fact Details had to get info from Angelina, Affleck and Robert DeNiro to help in the article. Here's highlights of what Matt had to say:

  • On the Hollywood limelight:
    “I’ve worked very hard in interviews to portray a very polite and boring person. I’m actively trying to get away from the overexposure that happened eight years ago.
  • On being famous:
    “I’d heard people say, ‘You’ll enjoy being famous for a week, and you’ll never enjoy it again.’ I don’t even feel like I had that week. I was so busy working that I didn’t even get to notice that moment.”
  • On turning down the cover of Rolling Stone:
    “Harvey [Weinstein] came to the set of Rounders and was yelling at me, going, ‘What the f--k is wrong with you? Did you ever think you’d be on the cover of Rolling Stone? And I said ‘Sure, I dreamed about it when I was a kid, but I’m already on the cover of nine other f--king magazines. My own grandmother told me she’s sick of seeing me. I can’t do this anymore.”

BFF Ben Affleck said “If he does something he doesn’t like, it will stay with him. And if you bring up something he did 10 years ago, he’ll be like, ‘Ugh, I f—king hate that!’ Matt takes it harder than most.” Well, while some may agree with Matt, we're still guilty of giving him more press. But it's only because there is just something about Matt that we love. For more about the interview pick up the December issue of Details. If you can't wait that long, there's more highlights so just

  • On giving interviews:
    “The only thing a celebrity can do in one of these articles is hurt their own career. If I give you a really good interview, am I going to get a movie out of it? F--k no! So what’s the argument for saying anything, unless you have this rampaging need to please?”
  • On being selective with his roles:
    “I want the kind of career Robert Duvall has. I don’t feel [that] chasing movies like this is going to lead to a 40-year career. I’d rather be broke.”

Well, with a low profile, it just helps us to better focus on his acting than on his personal life. ____________________________________ Don't tick me off. Or you'll get it.

I think it is very respectable of him to not want to be a media wh*re. Most people would NEVER pass up a chance to be on the cover of Rolling Stone. I admire celebs that would rather put the focus on thier work rather then themselves.
