Matt Damon

3There’s Another Damon Baby in The World!

On Wednesday, Luciana gave birth to the latest Damon spawn, a healthy little girl they named Stella Zavala (that’s cute, isn’t it?  I mean, I can never hear the name Stella without imagining it screamed by a wasted Marlon Brando, but it’s still a nice name).  On top of the birth of this brand new baby, Matt’s movie, Hereafter, was released in theatres on Friday and brought in a pretty solid $12 million.

I think it must be amazing to be Matt Damon.  And yeah, it would probably be awesome to be virtually any rich person, but Matt just seems like a fun, classy rich person who also happens to be married to a rather attractive person.  Plus, wouldn’t it be fun to be able to call Ben Affleck up every once in a while and be like “hey Ben, remember Gigli? What the fuck was that?”

4Matt Damon’s Expecting Another Daughter

Matt Damon and Wife Expecting Third Daughter

I still haven’t gotten over the fact that the woman Matt Damon keeps impregnating is not me, but whatever. I have to deliver this news to you. It’s my job.

Matt Damon and his wife Luciana Barrosa are expecting their third daughter. The couple already has Isabella (age 4) and Gia (age 2), as well as Luciana’s 11-year old daughter from a previous relationship. The couple are supposedly “thrilled.”

The news that his wifey is preggo may be one of the reasons that Matt won’t be appearing in the next Bourne flick, or, you know, maybe there’s someone in this town who knows how to throw in the towel when it’s appropriate (I’M TALKING TO YOU, DEPP.)

11Matt Damon is Going to Guest Star on 30 Rock

Late last year Tina Fey mentioned in an interview that Matt Damon was one of her top picks for a potential 30 Rock guest spot. Of course upon hearing this, Matt Damon was not only down to grant Tina her wish, he seemed almost desperate to give the collaboration a shot, saying at the time, “I would do [30 Rock] in a heartbeat if they asked me to come on. She should call my people — or even better me. Or I could call her. Let’s make this happen.”

Then today it was announced that it will totally be happening. Amazing! Yes, Matt Damon’s a great dramatic actor, but he’s always brought the laughs. His guest stint on Will & Grace still makes me giggle and he was pretty good natured when Sarah Silverman announced to the world that they were fucking. And he’s hot for days. Per usual, there are no details about what kind of character Matt will play, but the safe bet is that he’ll be another man for Jenna.

The episode will most likely air at the end of the season. Get excited!

13Alice in Wonderland Takes the Box Office

For the second week in a row, Alice in Wonderland was the box-office leader, pulling in $62 million. I haven’t seen it yet, but I think I want to. I’m just worried that after the first 15 minutes I’ll get bored with how beautiful it is and be like, “Oh, yeah, it’s the Alice in Wonderland story, who cares?” Let me know if you’ve seen it and what you thought. Worth seeing in theaters or wait for DVD?

Matt Damon’s Green Zone was the second-biggest draw, with $14.5 million domestically. As a giant Matt Damon fan, I saw this on Friday, and it was decent. As far as Matt Damon action movies go, it was kind of so-so. Like, the premise of the entire movie is “George Bush is intentionally lying about the presence of WMDs in Iraq.” Which, true or not, is kind of an overplayed concept. I was waiting for the exciting and creative twist, but it didn’t come. However: Matt Damon looked really, really good the whole time. Matt Damon should wear Army fatigues everywhere he goes. I may get easily bored of Johnny Depp looking like Carrot Top in a giant hat, but I will never tire of Matt Damon dressed in Army fatigues. If Matt Damon ever does a movie where he plays a fireman I will probably kill his wife in a jealous blackout go see it.

6The Dude Abides

This post is supposed to be about giving the gents some fashion love after three articles of women’s Oscar fashion, but I’m distracted right now by the fact that Jeff Bridges just won an Oscar. I think his win may be the only time I’ve ever actually cheered out loud for one of these awards ceremonies like I was watching a sporting event.

On to the fashion crap.

Pretty much every man ever wears the same thing to the Oscars- black tuxedo with some variation of tie and shoes. There’s not a lot to see there. Robert Downey Jr. took a slight break from the standard by pairing his with sneakers, a blue bowtie and some shades. Eli Roth had smugness for an accessory that translated into some hilarious red carpet photographs, and George Clooney’s best accessory was the gorgeous brunette whom he joked couldn’t speak English.

But who really cares about all that? Jeff Bridges is a freakin Academy Award winner! Less than one minute after the win, someone has already updated his Wikipedia entry. Since I can’t do that, here are some celebratory tweets by clever people:

@Squirrellqueen : That Oscar will really tie the room together.

@thats_so_april : If Jeff Bridges doesn’t remind you of your dad just a little bit then, well, sorry about your dad.

@leolaporte : Sometimes you eat the bar, and sometimes you win an Oscar.

@rilaws : When Jeff Bridges opens his mouth, po’ boys and jars of beer come tumbling out.

Congrats Jeff!

3Matt Damon and Ben Affleck Are Totally Related

Matt and Ben are Cousins?

The New England Historic Genealogical Society, who apparently has nothing better to do than investigate the DNA of people with really tight friendships has discovered a link between two of Hollywood’s hottest men who also just happen to be childhood BFFs and sometimes writing partners.

What did they discover about these two? Well, it turns out their equally good genes aren’t just a fluke. The two are actually cousins… 10 times removed. They share a 10th-great grandfather, William Knowlton of Ipswich who passed away back in 1655.

Who else are they related to? Well, Matt Damon is connected to six or seven presidents and Ben Affleck is an 11th cousin to our current prez, Barack Obama. Basically, William Knowlton is the original Jim Bob Duggar.
