Matt Damon glad he's not as famous as Johnny Depp

Aug 23 2013, 12:36am CDT | by Bang Showbiz

<p>Matt Damon is glad he isn't as famous as Johnny Depp.

The 42-year-old actor is relieved his film roles haven't propelled him to the same level of stratospheric stardom as the 50-year-old icon, who has waved goodbye to his privacy since agreeing to play eccentric Captain Jack Sparrow in the 'Pirates of the Carribean' franchise.

Asked whether he's glad he can still take his daughters to school like a normal father, Matt replied: "It's been that way for four years and I don't know why it would change. Although I look at someone like Johnny Depp, who I think was afforded a certain amount of freedom for a long time, then he suddenly wasn't.

"For a long time he was doing great and interesting movies and was able to have it both ways. Then he was in a movie that was too damn successful. But those 'Pirates' movies are so much more successful than anything I've ever been a part of that I just assume that's another level. When you're at the theme-park ride level..."

The handsome star also opened up about his fitness regime in preparation for his new sci-film 'Elysium', admitting he struggled with it because he loves calorific treats and wine too much.

He told ShortList magazine: "It was a lot of work. Neill [Blomkamp, the director] showed me the graphic novel and there was a picture of Max [his character] and what he looked like, so I realized I had to go and do it. I exercised twice a day really seriously with a trainer. A lot of protein, and a lot of weight lifting.

"The working out I enjoy, it's the dieting I don't like. I like to eat and drink, and I don't like to be told that I can't. I associate food and a glass of wine with a job well done, and with victory. I'd be at my house with my kids and feel like, I'm a good guy, why can't I have a cheeseburger?"

Kevin Smith Shaved His Beard

Oct 28 2014 1:00pm CDT | Source: IDon'tLikeYouInThatWay.com

  Kevin Smith wrote a movie called Yoga Hosers (“…when an ancient evil rises from beneath Canada’s crust and threatens their big invitation to a Grade 12 party”). And what you just read after the movie’s title is part of the premise, but I’m confused because it doesn’t star Justin Bieber, it stars Johnny Depp instead. Smith shaved his beard for the movie, where I assume he’s playing a character who is on some kind of neighborhood watchlist and has to check in with ...

Kim Kardashian: I Was OBSESSED With Johnny Depp!

Oct 24 2014 11:41am CDT | Source: The Hollywood Gossip

We thought we knew everything there was to know about the life and times of Kim Kardashian. In the last few days, however, we've learned about her past, and dare we say - it's all making us like her a lot more: First we saw video of Kim when she was 13 and acting a fool at her eighth grade graduation. It seems the revelation that she was as corny and annoying as the rest of us in her middle school years has ...
