Matt Damon has revealed that he gets mistaken for Mark Wahlberg all the time, and apparently vice versa. I’m a little confused on this one because while they look similar in the fact that they’re both handsome (to most, I guess?) white guys who are rich and work in Hollywood, their actual facial structure isn’t all that similar, is it?
From Absolute Radio (via DS):
“I’ve talked to Mark about this because he gets people [that] come up and say, ‘I love you in The Bourne Identity‘.
“So Mark and I have a deal. If we’re mistaken for one another, we have to be as polite as possible.”
That’s kind of strange, but people are kind of stupid, so I guess that makes sense. Matt even said that he’s signed Mark’s autograph before for fans who think that’s who he is.
“Oh yeah, yeah. You have to be as nice as possible. If they keep the thing going, you have to keep it going.”
Well, that’s nice of him, I suppose, not to shatter people’s dreams. Do you think they look alike? Not just “vaguely similar”, I mean alike enough for you to mistake one for the other?

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.
What in the ever-loving hell. Did he mean to sound like an egotistical dick, or was that just a happy accident? Couldn’t he have said, “I fell in love with someone not in the entertainment industry”? He had to say “a civilian”? Come now, Matt, that’s Jason Bourne talk.
Yeah, you’re so lucky Matt Damon, that you fell in love with your normal average not famous actress wife. I get what he’s saying, I really do, but if he said this about me I would roll up this copy of Esquire and swat him with it saying, “CHOO CHOO, CIVILIAN COMING THROUGH!” But I’m not married. I don’t even have a boyfriend. So I guess my approach would be bad. :(
Also can’t help but wonder if this is some sort of twisted jab at Ben Affleck.

Michael Douglas looks like he is going to be the best damn Liberace ever in HBO’s upcoming film, Behind the Candelabra. Matt Damnon plays his lover in the film, so naturally there’s a lot of kissing. Someone asked dear Mr. Douglas what that was like. Here’s what he said, via Showbiz Spy:
I forgot it was Matt and me after about 10 minutes and then I forgot it was two guys. Both of us are in long-standing marriages, so that makes it easier. It’s like love scenes with a girl. If you’re an actor, you gotta do it. We read the script; we knew what we had to do. The challenge was making it as real as possible. But I would tease Matt about which flavor lip gloss he’d like for me to use!
OH, YOU! I am so excited for this film. I hope my goddamn HBOGo starts working again. F-ck HBO.
Just look at Rob Lowe. Incredible. Such commitment.

Matt Damon is pretty low key and inoffensive, so I don’t mind him. He and wife Luciana Barroso revealed back in February that they were planning a second wedding ceremony due to their first, 2005 nuptials being a little small for their liking. New reports suggest they’ll be renewing their vows in St. Lucia in the middle of April.
From The New York Post:
Matt Damon and his wife, Luciana Barroso, are renewing their wedding vows in 10 days at the Sugar Beach resort in St. Lucia, sources tell us. Damon rented out the entire five-star Caribbean resort for a reported $1 million and, we hear, will have a star-studded guest list that includes George Clooney and Stacy Keibler, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner. Damon and his wife wed in a small ceremony at city hall in 2005 and, we’re told, are looking forward to a larger celebration.
Of course the Silver Fox is coming! Of course Ben + Jen – the beacons of TRUE LOVE FOREVER – are going to be there, too. Sounds like a good time to be had by all. That’s an Evite I’d click ‘Yes’ to.

Bill Murray, Matt Damon, John Goodman, and George Clooney had the silveriest foxiest night about town. Just a group of four chill bros. At first glance, really just looks like a group of dads. But look again! It’s a quirky film director’s dream team!
The legit foursome are shooting a film in Berlin titled The Monuments Men. Here’s a short description of the film from IMDB: “In a race against time, a crew of art historians and museum curators unite to recover renown works of art stolen by Nazis before Hitler destroys them.” Yes, what better roles for John Goodman, Bill Murray, George Clooney, and Matt Damon than badass art historians and museum curators?
Clooney I hope that mustache is essential to the plot.
Mad props to The Daily Mail for the photos and for also describing to the last detail what each man is wearing.
Check out the rest of the photos. Also some random dude is there at one point. No idea who it is.

Matt Damon must be trying to compete with Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner for the “Best Couple Ever” award, as he’s recently revealed plans to renew his wedding vows with his wife of eight years, Luciana Barroso. After having a small, private affair in 2005, they want to do something bigger and bolder (and sexuality confirming) the second time around and invite all their family and friends. All I want to know is whether it’s open bar.
From The New York Post:
A-listers were buzzing in LA over Oscar weekend that the “Saving Private Ryan” star and his wife have sent out “save the date” cards to close family and friends for an April bash that’s so top-secret, even the guests haven’t been told the location yet.
“They had a really low-key wedding in Manhattan,” a Hollywood source explained, adding, “so now they want to do something bigger.”
Sources said that while details of the bash are being kept hush-hush, one rule for guests lucky enough to be invited will be “no kids” on the trip.
Now that’s what I call a wedding – no kids? Sign me up! I mean, kids are great and all, but come on – they’re kind of the worst. You can’t do shit when there’s a toddler (or 8-year-old, pre-teen, teenager…) around cramping your style. I should go check my spam filter in case my Evite got lost.
