Matt Damon: 'I don't want my daughters to act'

Nov 17 2012, 12:00am CST | by

Matt Damon hopes his daughters never follow him into acting because Hollywood is so unfair to women.

Matt Damon hopes his daughters never follow him into acting.
The 41-year-old actor - who raises Alexia, 14, Isabella, six, Gia, four and 23-month-old Stella with wife Luciana -is horrified by how Hollywood treats women over and would never want that for his own kids.
Speaking in a Hollywood Reporter roundtable discussion with actors including Richard Gere, Denzel Washington, Jamie Foxx, he said: ''I would try to steer my daughters away from acting. Women are in a different business than we are. It is just brutal for women. For men, the roles get really good at 40 and beyond. And that's when you really start doing your best work.''
Matt also thinks fame has changed how other people treat him.
He explained: ''When we started writing 'Good Will Hunting', I was 22 and Ben [Affleck] was 20 and it came out when I was 27 and he was 25. I always had this theory that you kind of retard emotionally at the moment you become famous. It's not that you change, the world changes his relationship to you. So your entire reality shifts and that's a jarring experience and hard to prepare for.''

Doug Liman: Action Speaks Louder

Jul 10 2014 8:57am CDT | Source: WNYC Music

Matt Damon Visits the Young Hollywood Studio
Since his earliest films, director Doug Liman has been a rule breaker. He shot Swingers in increasing order of what scenes were most likely to get him arrested. When he made The Bourne Identity and Mr. & Mrs. Smith, Liman treated the multi-million dollar productions like a film school, figuring out every last detail out on the fly. And in his latest film, Edge of Tomorrow, Liman stays true to that belief, as he cast Tom Cruise in a role he's never taken on before: an inept, co ...

Tom Hardy wears glasses for 1960s gangster film ‘Legend’: would you shag it?

BLAG Clothing Label - Official Launch Party
Girls don’t make passes at boys who wear… nevermind. When that boy is Tom Hardy, he can wear glasses, leather jeggings and a red lace bra and I’d still want to hit it. These are photos of Tom, in character, filming in London yesterday. It seems like I was wrong about Tom’s next project – the Elton John bio-pic must have been pushed back, and Tom keeps a much tighter schedule than Benedict Cumberbatch, s ...

Ed Sheeran claims Benedict Cumberbatch was going to dance in his music video

Jun 2 2014 10:16am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

DreamWorks Animation Presentation - Comic-Con International 2014
Ed Sheeran has a lengthy new interview with The Telegraph, which I’m only going to partially discuss. If you’re into Sheeran, have at it: you can read the full piece here. I do kind of like Sheeran – he seems like a nice guy, and while his lyrics aren’t always my cup of tea, I appreciate the fact that he’s a prolific songwriter, not just for himself but for many other artists as well. With Ed’s new album, he’s stepping out of his “En ...

Mindy Kaling: 'I wasn't considered attractive or funny enough to play myself'

66th Primetime Emmy Awards Nominations
Mindy Kaling rushes into the restaurant loaded with so many bags it looks as if she's playing the part of a frantic shopper. She immediately apologies for the venue, a glitzy sushi joint in New York's SoHo that is, as she puts it, quite "Ashton Kutcher, 2007" (she chose it as she's staying next door). She's been to collect the gifts she received at a book signing the night before, which include a fan-made T-shirt with he ...
