Matt Damon: Bourne Trumps Bond
Matt Damon joins picture perfect wife Luciana Damon at the UK premiere of The Bourne Ultimatum at London’s Odeon Leicester Square on Wednesday.
And the difference between James Bond and Jason Bourne?
“Bond is an imperialist and a misogynist who kills people and laughs about it, and drinks Martinis and cracks jokes,” he told reporters. “Bourne is a serial monogamist whose girlfriend is dead and he does nothing but think about her.”
Added Damon, “The Bourne franchise is not about wearing Prada suits and looking at women coming out of the sea with bikinis on. It’s about essence and truth, not frippery and surface.”
FYI: The Bourne Ultimatum earned $32.9 million in its second weekend, for a total of $131.6 million. It has already earned more than the total US take for the first film of the trilogy, The Bourne Identity.
