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.''

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 beginni ...

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 exitin ...

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 disdain for social media: “This constant record ...
