Matt Damon Gets 'Walk of Fame' Star
Angel-faced actor Matt Damon is honored with the well-deserved 2,343th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Wednesday in Los Angeles. Not too long ago, he had his handprints and footprints cemented at the Grauman’s Chinese Theater alongside George Clooney and Brad Pitt.
“I can’t believe I’m standing on a star with my name on it. I’m going to show my kids that,” Matt beamed during the ceremony. “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.”
“Ben and I lived in a really crappy apartment about five blocks away from here and we used to walk up and down here. It’ll probably sink in when I’ve walked down the street in about six months and see someone peeing on my star,” he laughed.
Matt was accompanied by his wife Luciana Damon, his mother Nancy Carlsson-Paige (a professor of education at Lesley University in Cambridge, MA), Mayor of Hollywood Johnny Grant and Bourne director Paul Greengrass
Expect more Matt coverage tonight — the world premiere of The Bourne Ultimatum is tonight in Los Angeles!
In the meantime, check out this snippet of Variety‘s review of the film: “If they could bottle what gives The Bourne Ultimatum its rush, it would probably be illegal. The third and purportedly final installment in the mountingly exciting series is a pounding, pulsating thriller that provides an almost constant adrenaline surge for nearly two hours. Worldwide B.O. will be terrific and likely surpass that for each of the previous two pictures, which combined pulled down more than $500 million.”
