I’ve never been one of Those People who think that Matt Damon is the most amazing/adorable/beautiful person. Like, I’ve never even seen Good Will Hunting, that’s how indifferent I am. Or I suppose, how indifferent I was. I mean, I haven’t seen that film in the two seconds since I typed that last statement, but this past year, I’ve been developing a solid appreciation for Matt and all he does, and all this little interview of him at the Save Our Schools March does is make me appreciate him so much more.
“I never thought I would get to kiss Michael Douglas. I kind of think of it in algebra terms, back to my high-school days. It’s like the transitive property – by kissing Michael Douglas, I am making out with Catherine.”
In case you didn’t know, Matt Damon is referring to the upcoming Liberace biopic in which Michael Douglas plays that well-loved pianist. Matt, if you couldn’t piece it together, plays Liberace’s boyfriend. Can you even wait for this movie?
The ICG Publicist Awards were last night, and I don’t know what that’s all about, but it’s an award show, and Matt Damon wore his pajamas. He showed up to this legit award show (I included a picture of Arnold Schwarzenegger in his suit for comparison) in a flannel robe and pants, slippers, disheveled hair, and the greatest “I just don’t give a fuck” look I’ve ever seen. Seriously, Matt Damon walked the carpet, took some pictures, and presented an award in his fucking pajamas, and I just think that’s the greatest thing.
Let’s dedicate the next week to living like Matt Damon, ok? Can we make that pledge? I’ll start by wearing the pajamas I’m in right now through the end of the month and writing an Academy Award-winning screenplay, you guys can follow your own hearts.
