Matt Damon is Born Again

I know you may be surprised to learn this news, but Matt Damon is born again. Yes, I have it on good authority that Matt is born again.

Oh, wait a minute. That was a misspelling!

What I meant to write was Matt Damon is Bourne again!

“E! News” reported recently that Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass, the director of his first Bourne film, will make another film in the Jason Bourne series based on the exciting character created by author, Robert Ludlum.

That’s the truth. Our favorite actor, boyish-looking Matt Damon, at the age of 45 (who knew?) will once again play our favorite rogue U.S. spy and amnesiac killing machine, Jason Bourne, in a sequel to his three successful Bourne films.

The fourth episode is projected to be in theaters in 2016.

If you like suspenseful, action movies with intricate plots and excellent actors, be sure you see the first three Bourne films:

“The Bourne Identity,”

“The Bourne Supremacy,”

“The Bourne Ultimatum” – in that order.

You will not be disappointed. Trust me!

Make Your Own Supernatural Headpiece

I intended to interview Matt Damon via my personal supernatural communication technology. But I ran out of aluminum foil for the headpiece. So I had to substitute a piece of foil already used to cook steak on my indoor grill. Those few fat spots that remain should not affect transmission.

First a little background.

Matt Damon was born Matthew Paige Damon on October 8, 1970 in Cambridge, Massachusetts. His father, Kent Damon, was a stockbroker and realtor; his mother, Nancy Carlsson-Paige, an early childhood education professor at Lesley University. He has a brother, Kyle, three years older.

In 1973, when his parents were divorced, Matt and Kyle moved with their mother to a six-family communal house near Harvard.

Now – on to the interview.

“It’s better to be a fake somebody than a real nobody.” – Matt Damon

Interview with Matt Damon

me – Good morning, Mr. Damon, is this a good time for an interview with my favorite handsome, talented male movie star?

Matt – Call me Matt. I am always up for an interview with anyone who calls me their favorite handsome talented actor. Even though it is 6 am.

me – Forgive me, Matt, I forgot that California is four hours earlier than Florida. Mea culpa!

Matt – I think the ‘culpa’ may be mine for picking up the phone.

me – My sincere apologies. Did you have a stable home environment?

Matt “My mother is a professor of early-childhood development, and she raised my brother and me by the book.

“She would say things like, ‘In six months, you’re going to feel some anger toward me, and it’s OK’ – as if she knew it all in advance. It was an annoying way to be raised. You couldn’t define yourself, because you already had been defined by her.

“She once refused to submit me to standardized testing telling the administrator, ‘it's stupid, it won't tell you anything, and it'll just make him nervous.’”

me – What was it like living in a ‘communal house?’

Matt – The first words that come to mind are ‘no privacy whatever.’

Matt Damon and Ben Affleck

me – I hear you. Tell me how you met your best buddy, Ben Affleck.

Matt – Ben lived only two blocks away and we became good friends – I was ten and he was eight – when we discovered we both had the “acting bug.” Our mothers who both worked in education knew each other and encouraged us to spend time together. Ben was already an acting pro since he had appeared in a PBS-TV series.

As high school students at Cambridge Rindge and Latin School, we took drama classes together. Although we were in different grades, we discovered we had “identical interests.”

“We obsessed over acting, I know it’s odd. But Ben was my best friend. We shared this dream. We enabled each other. Without Ben, I wouldn’t have known where to start.

“We were both inspired by our drama teacher, Gerry Speca, although Ben got the biggest roles and the longest speeches.

“We held ‘business meetings’ to discuss our acting prospects and even shared a bank account.”

me – How did you earn money while in high school?

Matt“We had many summer jobs together working as construction workers and movie ushers.”

Matt's First Film

meAnd after high school?

Matt – I entered Harvard University as an English major in 1988 and planned to graduate with the class of ’92. "Ben moved to Los Angeles to attend Occidental College."

me – Did you graduate?

Matt – Almost. I skipped a number of classes to pursue acting projects: small parts in small films. My first role was as Steamer in the movie, “Mystic Pizza.”

me – Did you have much dialogue?

Matt – Not so much. My only line in the entire film was, while eating lobster, “Mom, do you want my green stuff?" (laughing)

me – Not too auspicious a start.

Matt – True, and suspicious, too. I never did find out what that 'green stuff' was. But the acting bug had taken hold.

“I was gonna be getting out of school in two or three months when I got a part in the movie, “Geronimo: An American Legend.” I went out to Los Angeles and stayed with Ben. (He had dropped out of college, too). I slept on his floor. I brought my Act I of the “Good Will Hunting” script and gave it to him.”

Good Will Hunting . . .

. . . or how a long-shot film by two struggling actors became one of Hollywood’s biggest success stories.

me When did you begin writing “Good Will Hunting”?

MattI was in my fifth year at Harvard, and I had a few electives left. There was this play-writing class and the culmination of it was to write a one-act play, and I just started writing a movie. So I handed the professor at the end of the semester a 40-some-odd-page document, and said, ‘Look, I might have failed your class, but it is the first act of something longer.’"

My professor, Anthony Kubiak, said my script was "'very authentic and real.'’"

me – How did you get Ben Affleck involved in co-writing the script with you?

Matt – I asked him: “Will you help me write this? I’m not sure what it is or where to go. So we started writing it sort of back and forth. It was the first thing we woke up thinking about and the last thing we thought about before going to bed.

“I didn’t realize the stereotype at the time was that every actor has a screenplay.”

me – How would you describe your film script in one paragraph?

Matt – It was about a bunch of rough-around-the-edges ‘Southie’ kids from Boston scraping their way through life. The hook is: one of them, Will Hunting, is a genius. He is a guy who wows MIT, humiliates Harvard grad students, and turns down job offers from the NSA (National Security Agency).

me – I know that the production company, Castle Rock, purchased the script first and kept it a year before turning it down. How did Miramax get into the picture?

Matt – “Our film would never have been made if not for Robin Williams.” Miramax agreed to produce it when Robin signed on as the psychotherapist in the movie.

"Ben and I owe everything to him. He said yes to our movie and he got it made. I could never thank him enough. I look around at the life I have and how blessed I feel, and so much of it started with him."

“I basically started performing for my mother, going, ‘Love me!’ What drives you to perform is the need for that primal connection. When I was little, my mother was funny with me, and I started to be funny for her, and I learned that by being entertaining, you make a connection with another person.” – Robin Williams

Robin Williams

me –What was it like working with Robin Williams?

Matt"He was the funniest person that I ever met in my life. He was the guy who, when the crew was flagging, he would stop everything and do 20 minutes of standup off the top of his head that literally had everybody on the floor, then be like, 'OK, let's get back to work.'"

me In January 1998, "Good Will Hunting" became a sleeper hit, eventually grossing $226 million on a modest $10 million budget, and garnering nine Academy Award nominations.

Robin Williams won the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor, and you, Matt, and Ben walked away with the award for Best Original Screenplay.

Matt“And both Ben and I took our moms as dates to the ceremony.”

Courage under Fire

me – Tell me about your role in the film, "Courage under Fire," which was released in 1996. You were a standout in that film as the drug-addicted U.S. Army medic.

Matt “I was 25, and it didn’t look as if "Good Will Hunting’" was getting made. Then I read this script that had a role I thought bigger actors had somehow missed.

“I thought it was a real opportunity to show the devastation of combat and drugs. All it took was me not cracking. I went on this really unhealthy diet.

"For four months I ate basically chicken, egg whites and lettuce. I ran 13 miles a day. I went from 200 pounds down to 140. When there was no fat left to lose, my body started eating into muscle. It was very dangerous, but in my mind I was proving something: ‘See what I’m willing to do?'"

That's Matt in the middle from "Invictus"

me – What is the scariest thing you have had to do in a movie … so far?

Matt “One of the scariest things I've ever had to do was the underwater scene in the second Bourne movie, where the car goes into the river and I've lost the love of my life. I didn't want to do that at all.

"So I wouldn't be constantly aware of how scared I am of drowning, I had to go to a pool with this great stunt guy … a couple of times a week for a month or so to train me to relax underwater without an oxygen mask and with a blindfold and, later, to do simple tasks underwater like tying a shoe.

"That first night I woke up probably four times gasping for breath, thinking I was drowning. It was terrible. When you make movies, you end up being trained to do really weird things you don't do anywhere else.”

me – What is an important lesson you have learned from making movies?

Matt"I'm not Brad Pitt or George Clooney. Those guys walk into a room and the room changes. I think there's something more ... not average, but everyman about me. People are constantly telling me: ‘My brother looks just like you.’

"The minute people started saying, `He's the all-American guy,' my career got interesting. It liberated me. Instantly it was an image directors could f*** with."

Some Fun Facts about Matt Damon

Matt is married to Argentine-born Luciana Barroso whom he met in Miami, where she was working as a bartender. They married in a private civil ceremony on December 9, 2005, at the Manhattan Marriage Bureau. They have four daughters: Isabella, Gia and Stella, and Alexia, Luciana's daughter from a prior marriage.

He dropped out of Harvard 12 credits short of graduating to pursue his acting career.

He quit smoking after visiting a hypnotist in Los Angeles.

Matt is a big fan of the Boston Red Sox and he tries to attend their games whenever possible.

Jeremy Renner, the British actor who became famous for his role in "The Hurt Locker," played a different super spy, Aaron Cross, in the movie, "The Bourne Legacy,’" in 2012. A sequel had been planned for that role as well but now may be delayed.

He has also formed strong friendships with his "Oceans" films co-stars, George Clooney and Brad Pitt, with whom he works on charity projects including ONE Campaign, H2O Africa Foundation, Feeding America, and Water.org.

Matt Damon became the 2,343rd person to receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2007. He reacted to the award by stating: "A few times in my life I've had these experiences that are just kind of too big to process, and this looks like it's going to be one of those times."

Matt’s paycheck for the 1998 film, “Rounders,” was $600,000. His paycheck for the 2007 film, “The Bourne Ultimatum,” was $20,000,000.

“How do you like them apples?” (Famous line from ‘Good Will Hunting.’)

Important Footnote:

I borrowed actual language – the real words Matt Damon has spoken in genuine interviews with genuine journalists. Every word you read in quotes and italics after his name are his words. Promise!

What an entertaining read! been a huge fan of Matt Damon especially his Bourne films. I knew about this upcoming installment to the Bourne franchise a while back. He made an announcement about it in BBC's Graham Norton Show where he was promoting Martian with co-star Anne Hathaway. I look forward to watching it. Great post and funny too!

You know...that steak-juice laden foil probably did the trick!!! Love the Bourne movies....excited now....

You have filled in so many gaps about Matt...how interesting that he and Ben were childhood friends...and look where it lead.

And peeking in side of Matt's brain to discover 'fear'...wow...

I for one am glad he is not George Clooney or Brad Pitt...they are they and he is HE!!!

Great hub...enjoyed the Robin clips...who could ever tire of them!!!???

This was wonderful drbj. Matt Damon is one of my favourite actors and Good Will Hunting one of the best movies of all time. The Bourne movies are also great and I love the books by Robert Ludlum as well. This seemed like you were really interviewing Matt...great job. I didn't realise he had made that many movies..amazing.

Hi, Suraj. Thanks for finding this entertaining - as Matt's films have always been for me. Especially when he is Bourne or Will or Ripley, etc.

I have not yet seen The Martian but it is on my bucket list.

Thanks for the visit and the kind comments.

You are so right, Patricia.That steak juice is a powerful force. I'm delighted to have been able to fill in a few gaps for you about Matt. It's so rewarding to know that he and Ben still appear to be best friends.

Some of his films have not been world-shaking but his performance is always top-notch.

Happy you enjoyed those clips of Robin Williams - he was one of the funniest comics I ever saw on screen and onstage. Thank you for all the sharing you do - you know you are much appreciated. Say Hello to your sis in an email from me. She looks from the photo in your last hub like a sweet person, too.

Hi, Jodah. Me, too. Matt is one of my favorites and as Will he was perfect! I saw that movie when it first came out and make it my business to see it almost every time it shows up on my cable TV. Never tire of it. Robin, too, was perfect as the shrink.

I have seen all 3 of Matt's Bourne movies, too, and the one with Jeremy Renner as well. Plan to see the newest Bourne, too.

Thanks for appreciating my interviewing technique. It usually works when the subject is as interesting as Matt.

Thanks, Martie, for loving my interviews. Matt and Ben and Robin thank you, too. I share your appreciation of Robin's talent and if you get the opportunity to view Good Will Hunting or any of the first 3 Bourne films, I'm certain you will become a Matt Damon fan, too. Trust me.

Lucky you, getting an interview with this talented hunk. My favorite role that he played was in Good Will Hunting. I didn't know that Robin Williams was the reason the movie finally made it to the big screen. As far as the "amnesiac killing machine" goes, my spouse is addicted to the Bourne series books and every time the movies come on TV we watch them again.

drbj profile image

drbj 13 months ago from south Florida Author

Hi, Peg. The script for Good Will Hunting made the rounds of the studios for a couple of years before Robin became involved. His participation convinced Miramax to take a chance and produce a script written by two young unproven writers who would also star in the film.

Me, too. I recorded the Bourne movies when they first became available on TV and now watch them whenever I get the urge.

Born to play Bourne. "But I ran out of aluminum foil for the headpiece. So I had to substitute a piece of foil already used to cook steak on my indoor grill. Those few fat spots that remain should not affect transmission." Lol. I really loved this hub. Matt Damon is a favorite actor of mine -- and not just because he's one of our native sons. A terrific actor, he not only has "everyman" nailed (because he is),he can play the bad guy and the audience still manages to feel sorry for him. That's not easy to do. His humanity always manages to etch through. (And with the exception of Mark Wahlberg, he's one of the few actors who doesn't butcher the Boston accent when playing a role of a Bostonian, Southie, etc. He knows. . :-) Great interview! Damon really was only a few classes away from graduating from Harvard when he left. I don't see many movies these days, but plan on seeing "The Martian" this weekend.

Hi Drbj - I have always loved Matt Damon and Ben Affleck. until I heard Ben had a drug problem. I have seen Matt in a few movies and have always been impressed with his acting ability and his humble attitude. I love the conversations in this hub based on truth. Robin Williams adds so much to this story of Matt. You are still funny with the interview, as usual. Great job. Sharing, Blessings, Audrey


drbj profile image

drbj 13 months ago from south Florida Author

Thank you, Genna, for really loving this hub. Fortunately, my secondhand stained foil did not prevent transmission with hunky Matt. You are absolutely correct. His talent enables him to play the good guy and the bad guy with realistic relish. He was believable as Tom Riley, the bad guy, in 'The Talented Mr. Ripley." Enjoy him as The Martian and let me know what you think.

Hi, Audrey. Matt seems to be one of the few actors with innate talent who also seems to be like a person you would really like as a friend.

Doc....FABULOUS! Of course I love Matt. Who doesn't? He's so damned talented in more than one way. From all sources of info, we can understand he's a great son, friend & fellow-actor, not to mention ideal husband and Dad. What a package!

I thoroughly enjoyed this fascinating hub, sharing what you know about Matt. When Robin Williams is mentioned, I couldn't help but realize how totally devastated his death had to be for Matt on such a personal level.

Great work, Doc. This will be viewed hundreds of thousands of times!!
