Matt Gets Naked and Dirty in The Good Shepherd

Matt may not like drawing attention to himself, but it must be hard when you have to get naked and wrestle in mud for your latest movie. So why have I not seen The Good Shepherd yet? Good question - clearly I need to check this movie out. In the film, Matt's character is initiated into the Yale secret society Skull & Bones through the naked mud wrestling ritual. Here's more:

"You go, you take off all your clothes, you get lathered up with mud and you wrestle," said Damon, who did it even though he's "36 years old and my naked wrestling days are over." The worst part? "It was cold. We shot it at Bronx City College in the basement in this room that they had redone, and it was wintertime and the big doors we needed to get the equipment in were open. It was demeaning enough to do the wrestling, but then all huddled and shivering."

Matt makes such sacrifices for his craft. Although when Robert DeNiro is directing and tells you to take your clothes off and roll around in the mud, I guess you'd better do it, you know? As for the complaining it was cold, well Matty, I must say you actually reminded me of George Costanza after he was caught leaving the pool. No need to make any excuses for us.

He naked mud wrestles while being URINATED ON. Also the movie was really disappointing, it was a bit long so you could tell that it had to be heavily edited and some of the parts of the story about his personal life that would have made the story more complete but I could have easily done without the personal story all together Also was anyone else bothered by the poor job that was done in aging the main characters (they looked the same at 20 as at 50)

He's such a normal guy. I like him. Do they mean full nudity?! Like full frontal? :gulp:

He's naked in the film but it doesn't show anything. The movie was confusing and long. He looks MUCH better in the Bourne Identity movies where he's totally ripped :-)

Didn't care for "The Good Shepherd". I thought it was a little plodding.

His glasses are not great. Haven't we all seen his booty. mud wrestling doesn't exactly get my gears going.

Big MD fan here. He's the genuine article. Polite, funny, and actually a bit shy and crazy mad nuts about his wife Luciana. I simply can't wait for the next Bourne installment.

He is not attractive to me. So naked is something that scares me in reference to him... I'm all in.
