Matt Damon posed for a playful spread in GQ's January 2012 issue. The actor donned shrunken shirts and showed off his carnival game skills in the photos taken by Ben Watts, which accompany an interview conducted at the Central Park Zoo. The location is fitting as Matt is in the middle of promoting his latest project, We Bought a Zoo, with his most recent appearance on the red carpet at last night's NYC premiere. He said he plans to take a break with his family for the holidays, but in the men's magazine, Matt was all about business. Here's more from Matt Damon in GQ:
- On working with George Clooney and Brad Pitt in the Ocean's movies: "Look, if you want to try and GQ it up with George and Brad, good luck! That's pretty rarefied air, and you're not going to bring more charm than those two, so you've got to find something else."
- On President Obama's joke about him at the White House Correspondents' dinner: “I have to say, it was pretty funny. Whoever came up with it, it was a terrific joke.”
- Director Steven Soderbergh on Matt: "Probably the least vain person in his position out there. He has no interest in protecting any sort of idea of himself as an actor."
