Matt Damon pities Brad Pitt

Jul 9 2013, 3:24am CDT | by

Los Angeles, July 9 (IANS) Actor friend Matt Damon is sympathetic towards his friend, Hollywood star Brad Pitt, who is always followed by paparazzi and, thus, cannot enjoy his personal life.

Los Angeles, July 9 — Actor friend Matt Damon is sympathetic towards his friend, Hollywood star Brad Pitt, who is always followed by paparazzi and, thus, cannot enjoy his personal life.

Damon and Pitt became friends after co-starring in the "Ocean's Eleven" franchise.

The "Bourne Identity" actor has managed to raise his children away from the spotlight unlike Pitt and his fiancee Angelina Jolie. Damon is happy he doesn't lead a similar life.

"If you can control the celebrity side of celebrity, then it (being super famous) is worth it. I look at Brad - and I have for years - and when I'm with him I see the intensity of that other side of it," Esquire magazine quoted the 42-year-old as saying, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

"And the paparazzi and the insane level of aggression they have and their willingness to break the law and invade his space - well, I wonder about that trade," he added.

Damon feels bad for his celebrity friend as he is not able to even walk his children to school.

"I remember telling him that I walk my kids to school, and his face just fell. He was very kind, but he was like, 'You b**tard'. Because he should be able to do that, too. And he can't"," said Damon.

Damon said that he is able to maintain a low-key life outside work as he is married to a non-celebrity, a former bartender Luciana Barroso.

"I got lucky, I fell in love with a civilian. Not an actress and not a famous actress at that. Because then the attention doesn't double - it grows exponentially. Because then suddenly everybody wants to be in your bedroom," he said.

"But I don't really give them anything (to report on). If I'm not jumping up and down on a bar, or lighting something on fire, or cheating on my wife, there's not really any story to tell," Damon said.

"They can try to stake me out, but they're always going to get the same story - middle-aged married guy with four kids. So as long as that narrative doesn't change too much, there's no appetite for it," he added.

ICYMI: St. Angie’s Hobo Husband On “Between Two Ferns”

Brad Pitt, a man that with every passing year starts to look more and more like the long-lost illegitimate son of the Zig-Zag man (Maury, get on that), made an appearance on Zach Galifianakis’ “Between Two Ferns” to promote that WW2 movie where he play ...

Brad Pitt’s ‘Between Two Ferns’ involves Louis CK, Ross & Rachel questions

Oct 23 2014 9:20am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

Confession: I “get” why people think Between Two Ferns is comedy gold, but many of the BTF episodes on Funny or Die are sort of boring to me. Of course, there are exceptions. Pres. Obama’s Between Two Ferns was amazing. And now Zach Galifianakis has interviewed Brad Pitt and I actually found myself laughing out loud several times. Yes, it’s awkward and it’s supposed to be a send-up of those sycophantic celebrity intervie ...

Oct 23 2014 8:38am CDT | Source: Gossip Cop

(Funny Or Die) Brad Pitt is the latest guest on “Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifianakis,” and things get even more uncomfortable than usual. The host tells Pitt he “looks like Hitler’s dream,” asks the actor if he can “borrow one or two of your sperms,” wonders aloud about when Pitt lost his virginity, and brings in a cranky Louis C.K. to “liven things up.” After Pitt and Galifianakis share a piece of gum, you might assume thin ...

Shia LaBeouf blames his arrest on ‘performance art’: funny or offensive?

Oct 20 2014 6:10am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

This is a photo of Shia from last week. He arrived to Jimmy Kimmel’s show in shiny, pink spandex pants. The pants were officially a gift from Ellen DeGeneres (as part of pink month), but we know Shia loves his neon workout ensembles. I have been slacking on Shia coverage, so this will be a lengthy roundup. Shia embarked upon a grand redemption tour for Fury. He’s behaved badly for several years, but he always catches a break and lands prestigious roles. Brad Pitt ta ...

Oh Shia. You were such a cute kid. In movies like Transformers and Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull you seemed the perfect combination of boyish good looks, acting chops and an eagerness to please. And then the troubles started. The arrests. The meltdowns. The purple leggings. At least now we know, it wasn’t temporary insanity, an inability to deal with fame but it was the whiskey that made you do it. At lea ...
