Quotables: I Guess Matt Damon Isn’t a Fan of President Obama

“I’ve talked to a lot of people who worked for Obama at the grassroots level. One of them said to me, ‘Never again. I will never be fooled again by a politician.’?You know, a one-term president with some balls who actually got stuff done would have been, in the long run of the country, much better. If the Democrats think that they didn’t have a mandate—people are literally without any focus or leadership, just wandering out into the streets to yell right now because they are so pissed off. Imagine if they had a leader.”

Those are some pretty strong words there. Calling the President out for having no balls? That’s some hardcore shit. What do you guys think – do you agree with Matty, here, or do you think the President’s done an OK job so far with the bum Congress he was dealt?

Scarlett Johansson Calls Matt Damon A Baby for Being Afraid of Snakes

Are you guys as insanely excited about that We Bought A Zoo movie as I am? Because I am too insanely excited, mostly because I can’t pass up a good animal movie. I went to see Zookeeper in theaters, ok? Plus the movie features my favorite animal that exists in reality, the bear! As if these things weren’t enough to convince me to go see this film, I now have the added image of Scarlett Johansson mercilessly mocking poor little Matt Damon about his fear of snakes:

For the actress [Scarlett], the scariest moment on the film “was watching Matt Damon cry like a baby and rock back and forth when the snakes were spread all over the set.”

Johansson grew up with reptiles, cats and horses, and had a degree of comfort around the working animals, but Damon wore his fear on his sleeve – and his face.

“He was pretty terrified,” Johansson told PEOPLE at the movie’s New York premiere Monday night.

“He was definitely sweating a bit, and maybe the sweat formed in the corner of his eye. I said, ‘Matt, these kids are practically juggling the snakes. Hold it together.’”

“I’m afraid of snakes,” Damon admitted. “And I got bullied into interacting with them by Scarlett and the kids.”

Oh, Matt Damon, it’s ok! You’re perfect just the way you are! Don’t let mean old Scarlett make you feel ashamed to be afraid! It’s ok to cry!

Just in Time for the Holidays: Last Night’s SNL with Katy Perry

Katy Perry teamed with Andy Samberg (and Matt Damon! And Val Kilmer! And even Abraham Lincoln!) for last night’s awesome SNLDigital Short.” I didn’t LOL or anything, but Katy Perry’s facial expressions slay me. And! Val Kilmer, singing! How I’ve missed you, Val.

Anyway. The song is about meth addiction and time-travel, and I love it. Then again, I almost always laugh at jokes about meth. I think drug references are hilarious. That isn’t weird, though, right? Everybody loves those Harold and Kumar movies.
