MATT DAMON: ‘WE DON’T TALK ENOUGH ABOUT MEN WHO ARE NOT MATT DAMON’

HOLLYWOOD – Matt Damon pleaded today for people to talk about men who are not Matt Damon.

In an interview with The Business Insider, Matt Damon made an impassioned plea for the conversation to include people ‘who are not Matt Damon’.

He said:

I think we’ve reached a watershed moment. I don’t really know what that means. Is it really a building which holds water? How does that work? What if someone opens the window? Wait, back to what I was saying. The point is with the #MeToo movement and all that, a lot of the conversation has been about Matt Damon. Women quite rightly have condemned Matt Damon for his cloth-eared interventions. But I think Matt Damon exists on a spectrum. There’s the Matt Damon that gives these stupid interviews. And then on the other end of the spectrum there’s the Matt Damon who appeared in Hereafter and We Bought a Zoo. You can’t compare We Bought a Zoo to rape. Can you?

But going back to women, what…

Dustin Hoffman isn’t Matt Damon and neither is Louis CK, who I love. I mean not the tugging-himself-off-in-front-of-women Louis, unless he’s doing it really, and I mean really ironically. Harvey Weinstein isn’t Damon and Ben Affleck isn’t… well actually he kind of is.

But Rose McGowan yesterday…

Why is the media so obsessed with Matt Damon? That’s what I want to know.  It’s like they want to thrust him into the middle of the conversation. Again and again.

Matt Damon will next be appearing in We Bought Another Zoo.

CASEY AFFLECK TO STAR AS HARVEY WEINSTEIN IN BRETT RATNER MOVIE

HOLLYWOOD – In a bold move, Casey Affleck stars as Harvey Weinstein in Brett Ratner’s new biopic.

A new movie based on the life of Harvey Weinstein will star Casey Affleck. Rush Hour director Brett Ratner had this to say:

We want the film to be as realistic as possible. This is an American tragedy and we need to get to the heart of it. 

Based on a script by Woody Allen and Roman Polanski in their first ever collaboration, the films also stars Mel Gibson and Michael Fassbender. Louis CK is in talks to play Bob Weinstein, Harvey’s brother. Ratner continues:

This is a story that needs telling right. We need to tell it from the inside. I got Bill Cosby to go over a draft of the script for me.

But don’t you think we need the perspective of the women who have spoken out?

Who like?

Asia Argento, Rose McGowan, Angelina Jolie, Ashley Judd, Gwyneth Paltrow? There are about thirty and counting I think. 

We have got a woman’s perspective in there though.

Who?

Lindsay Lohan.

Harvey will be released in 2018.
