Matt Damon feels pressure to make good movies

Aug 1 2013, 11:22am CDT | by Bang Showbiz

Matt Damon feels under pressure to make good movies.

The 42-year-old actor wants people to enjoy his films and he admits the pressure makes him act weird when he's promoting his projects.

During an appearance on 'The Late Show with David Letterman', he said: "I just feel pressured to try to make good movies. For me, a weird thing happens where I get this kind of weird, almost Tourette's thing, where I just immediately think of the exact wrong thing to say to try get people to see the movie."

To give an example, David asked him what his new science fiction movie 'Elysium' is about.

To which Matt jokingly responded: "Well how much do you know about fracking ... It's a science fiction fracking movie."

Matt's next project is 'The Monuments Men', a World War II movie directed by his friend George Clooney which also stars one of the Oscar winner's heroes Bill Murray.

He said: "[Bill] and George became friends about five or six years ago and George really just put this whole group together. Bill's awesome in the movie; he's really great.

"George really was one of the best directors I've ever worked with and I've worked with a lot of directors."

Matt quipped George, 52, is so talented it's not fair to his peers, adding: "It's so frustrating. Honest to God, it's like God said, maybe this once I'm just gonna keep going and give him more. Sure he's an actor, a writer and a producer, he's a director - yeah why not? It's obscene."

Terry Gilliam Sees Future Through Familiar Eyes In 'The Zero Theorem'

Sep 19 2014 7:55am CDT | Source: WNYC Music

Given that Terry Gilliam's The Zero Theorem first screened at the Venice Film Festival last year, it's absolutely coincidental that it's getting a theatrical release in the same season as the Stephen Hawking biopic, The Theory of Everything. Nevertheless, the confluence works well. Both are films about searches for a mathematical theory that will explain all existence — from its beginning ...

Jennifer Lawrence ‘knew every word of every song’ at the Coldplay show

Sep 19 2014 6:35am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

I don’t know how long people will care about the Martin Lawrence romance unless some photos show up soon. This story kept poking at me yesterday. I tried to ignore it to no avail. You’ve probably heard how Jennifer attended the Los Angeles Coldplay concert. Several celebs (including Matt Damon, Zoe Kravitz, and Chris Pine) went too. To no one’s surprise, no one got a photo of Jennifer and Chris together. Chris was seen exiting by himself (above). Jennifer made a separate break for it and ...

Jon Hamm: ‘I don’t get the mystery of faith. I’m too much of a math guy’

Sep 16 2014 6:35am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

I’m not sure if Jon Hamm gave this interview to The Irish Independent or if the newspaper has reprinted an interview Hamm gave with another outlet. For what it’s worth, I can’t find these quotes anywhere else, so I think this is an original piece. Jon is promoting Million Dollar Arm, Mad Men and various assorted projects, and as always, he’s brassy and opinionated. You can read the full piece here and here are some highlights: His disda ...
