This weekend I went to see The Bourne Ultimatum and based on the lines we can expect big box office sales for the Damon flick. The movie is getting fabulous reviews and we couldn't agree more. Matt is obviously our favorite boy of summer, so we we're psyched to see he landed the cover of EW this weekend in all of his sexy, sweaty action star glory. In the issue, Matt talks about the usual topics like the Bourne and Bond comparisons, but also gives us a few new juicy tidbits. Here's more:
- On his "good guy" image: I don't hold myself to some higher standard of behavior. You don't have to do a lot to be seen as nice. I guess some of these people must be such rampant pricks that people are amazed when you say hello. I don't know why people like me, and I don't know if I want to know. That might be the kiss of death. I'd rather people not know a lot about me and go see the movies.
- On the role he most regrets passing on:
Years ago, [Good Will Hunting director] Gus Van Sant wanted to do it with me and Joaquin Phoenix. But I was on my way to Italy to do The Talented Mr. Ripley and then All the Pretty Horses. And Gus wanted to do Brokeback right after. And I was like, ''Gus, I'm going to do a gay movie, then a cowboy movie. I can't follow it up with a gay-cowboy movie!''
Matt's good guy image is one of our favorite things about him, and we can't get enough of his down-to-earth sense of humor! If you haven't already gone to see what Jason Bourne remembers then hurry up and head to theaters now!
