Matt Damon Would Like Your Good Will Hunting Reviews Now

Matt Damon was showing off his legs and very blonde hair, we're still getting used to, on the set of The Human Factor in South Africa over the weekend. This might not be his dreamiest look, but the film has the kind of subject matter — Nelson Mandela's life — that could land him at next year's Oscars. He won his statue in 1997 though Damon thinks that we should let films prove their place in history before giving them awards. He spoke to Parade:

  • On the Oscars: I think that the best way to judge movies is, like, 10 years after they're released. I think they should actually do the awards that way. I think they should have done the Academy Awards this year for movies from 1998. I think it's better to look at a movie and then step back and look at it again. I don't think - that the awards necessarily get it right. I think they get it wrong more often than they get it right.
  • On playing Bourne again: We're working on it. This time it would be from an original script rather than a book by Robert Ludlum. But the director, Paul Greengrass, is busy and I am too, so we'll see what happens. . . . Listen, when I did the first movie, I was 29 years old. I am 37 now, and after a tough fighting scene, the next day you wake up and feel your body more. That's just the way it is.
  • On how he's changed: I'm probably a lot more boring than I used to be and more tired at night. You can't fake it. It's like when it's bedtime, it's bedtime. I go to bed earlier and I get up earlier. I think being a parent changes everything about you in really little ways and in ways that you don't really understand unless you have kids. It's kind of like describing a guitar chord -- it's not really a simple thing to do.

Considering he's hard at work in South Africa at the moment and was in Morocco just a few months ago, his life is far from boring.

Clint Eastwood looks like a woman standing there. I know he's old and frail..too bad because he really used to be "the man".

What a trooper Clint is- that man is so old and he doesn't let it hold him back one bit! The movie will probably be good but I can't wait to see Matt back to his Jason Bourne body.

I think Matt looks all sorts of dreamy. Even with the blond hair.Looking forward to seeing this film...love Clint Eastwood's work. His interview was cute but the awards thing was sorta right but waiting ten years to decide if you like a film is lame maybe people should watch the films more than once when they came out and then decide how they truly feel.
