Matthew Fox: Lost For Humor

Matthew Fox: Lost For Humor

Lost star Matthew Fox, aka Dr. Jack Shephard, hangs out with two female friends Thursday on a balcony in Sydney, Australia. He’s in town to promote the third season of Lost and his new movie Vantage Point.

He was recently asked about being name-dropped in the comedy Knocked Up. In the movie, Katherine Heigl plays a TV journalist named Alison Scott, who tells her boyfriend Ben Stone (played by Seth Rogen) that she is interviewing Fox.

Stone: Matthew Fox from Lost?

Scott: Yeah.

Stone: You know what’s interesting about him?

Scott: What?

Stone: Nothing.

Fox‘s humorless response to the movie reference was: “I couldn’t care less. That doesn’t have any effect whatsoever. I don’t spend a lot of time thinking about s— like that.”

But Fox is excited about getting back to filming Lost: “I love the story of Lost and I also would like a bit more certainty in my life. I’d like to see something happen (with the strike) so I can plan working on Lost, some other projects and also life outside of work.”

The survivors of Oceanic Air’s Flight 815 return in the Season 4 premiere in ONE WEEK — Thursday, Jan 31, @ 9PM ET/PT on ABC.

    what an ass it wasnt a career damaging quote get over yourself. i dont know what they slip in the water on the lost set, but most of them come across as a.holes who think they’re above everything.

  • Orange Clockwork

    Ugh. I use to find him SO attractive, but I just hate it when celebrities can’t laugh at themselves every now and then.

  • Jess

    Foxy needs to cut down the swearing. Sounds like he is trying to had to be cool. Plus, his little comment about “not caring” sounded like he did care and was pissed.

    I heard he had a huge falling out with the Lost Cast. Is that really true?

  • Freddie

    I don’t think that that’s humorlessness – I think that’s not caring about every little thing that’s said about you in the press / films / tv / etc. If you gave a crap about everyone’s opinion (whether good or bad) you’d be pretty busy. Plus, the Apatow crew isn’t really known for their good taste, anyway.

  • sandrine

    sixth yeah

  • hypocrite


    I couldn’t agree more. I read an article in Entertainment Weekly recently and it felt like he dropped the f-bomb like he was the coolest guy in school. Except that he just acts like a douchebag in my humble opinion.

    He’s not even that great of an actor. He can be adequate but never great.

  • Rae

    He is so sexy but I am sad that he can’t laugh at himself more. I thought he had said before that the quote amused him? He doesn’t look very happy happy being photographed.

  • Didi

    knocked up was funny and if the idiot can’t laugh at himself then he needs to go to an uninhabited island away from civilization and fucking live there where the trees are just as serious but with a bit more personality.

  • Shannon M.

    Man, he is sexy!!!!! But dude….he is too serious. I don’t like guys that can’t laugh at themselves or are too damn serious.

  • nicole m

    Why do celebs have to be so moody?

  • Kristen

    I cut him some slack for being a little cranky because they’re making him go all over the place on this promo tour he’s on.

    I didn’t think his comment was that bad, though. It’s not like he screamed “HOW DARE YOU BRING UP THAT MOVIE TO ME?!” and punched the interviewer.

  • julia

    I can’t stand this guy. He really needs to get over himself. And SO not hot anymore. If he ever was. Ugh.

  • elodie

    he is hot!!!!

  • zomgwe’resuchlosers!

    You know who the REAL douchebag, humorless twits are? Random people who get OUTRAGED on the internet about what a celebrity finds funny or not or that celebrities swear.

    At least he’s flying around the world and gets paid to be in the coolest show on the planet, while the internet crowd can sit and drool.

  • love

    he is an arogant man,and he is not good actor!

  • elisabetta

    Foxy is the hottest man on earth! *faints*

    ps. ITA zomgweetc.. (what a nick!)

  • kat

    how is he arrogant if he just doesn’t care if people poke fun of him? i think more celbrities should learn to think this way.
    compared to the “gay” joke they featured on 0 year old virgin in comparison to coldplay.
    man, martin took it seriously.

  • julie

    This man is soooo hot!!!! And we all know that he is also very kind and nice, so who cares about this quote. I’m sure he was just misunderstood. I love you Matt!!!!!

  • Lene

    He is very very very hot!!!!!!!!! :)

  • p124

    the pic with the 2 girls look awkward. maybe they just had a threesome and he’s pissed they stuck around =X

  • spi

    Funny how a response that he doesn’t care about the joke and some pictures where he is not smiling make people jump to the conclusion that he is an arrogant idiot…
    What do you want him to say, that he was flattered to be mentioned in a movie? That he found it utterly funny? That he was mad?
    No problem with Matthew Fox.
    And he is right, we want LOST back!

    @ zomgwe’resuchlosers! who said:

    I may not be flying around the world and being on an overrated show – but at least I am happy sitting here surfing the internet and not being a moody bitch just because people will think I am hard and cool and above it all….

  • julia

    Careful. If you get those Foxy fangirlies mad they’ll come after you. They defend this guy like he was their own. Why do they love such a stuck up douche?

  • Nina

    To julia @
    What are you talking about? In all of his interviews he seems like such a nice guy and so down to earth and in this comment he was just saying he doesn´t care and just because we still think after that comment he is still not a stuck up douche we are all of a sudden Foxy fangirlies? I think you should ask yourself why do you hate that guy like you actually no him?

  • Nina

    I meant know him :)

  • Beth

    FOX ROX !

    And people who say he doesn’t has humor are seriously mistaken. Watch the bloopers, watch his interview. Watch him on talk shows. Ellen loves this man. Just like I do :)

  • candi

    Good for Foxy. I wouldn’t care either.

  • Tom

    HA! I’m so glad the truth about this jerk is finally coming out. He’s a narcissistic drunk who definitely needs a good asskicking.

  • Waverly

    Hes way hot! and him being arrogant only makes him hotter.

    But i dont beleive that hes really super arrogant anyways.

  • jess

    Foxy is actually in Australia to promote the 4th season of Lost, not the 3rd lol.

  • Jess

    It’s not just this one interview about Foxy that makes him seem arrogent. It’s how he continously acts. So don’t say we are judging him by this one little thing.


    Jess: And I suppose you know Foxy personally in order to make that judgment call on how he continuously acts arrogant. *eye roll* I have not seen any live interview where he has behaved in an arrogant manner. And if the only thing you are going by are online and written interviews, then you are not well informed enough to actually judge the man lol.

  • Midnight

    Great actor. Great guy. Hottest man ever!!!

    Love him.

  • patty

    I love this man soooo much !!!! :-D

  • elodie

    thank jared!!more pics please!!

  • Jane

    To hypocrite ( post no.23)

    Seriously, lost is an over-rated show? You have to be kidden me. Only shows like Lost, House, The Wire, that make good tv.

    And as far as this guy is concerned, he has always been misunderstood, starting from that crappy rumor about somebody falling out with the cast…when that wasnt even true! Being the lead actor, he gets most of the limelight, which gives people more chances to call him a ‘douchebag’ and all that.

  • Angel

    I think it’s getting pretty obvious that Matthew Fox isn’t acting on Lost. He’s an arrogant prick and he plays an arrogant prick. It’s typecasting. I love Lost though and I’m glad they got this wad to play Jack. It wouldn’t be half as fun watching Lost if we didn’t have Jack to hate and make fun of. Please don’t die, Jack!

  • LyslefsFase

    He stood magnify to me, oozing my hands. The washcloth lit up ago as she pulled it out of her mouth.

  • lu

    you al talk like you know him! I’ve seen him in interviews and he seems like a nice, down to earth, funny guy.

    That was a dumb question for the interviewer to ask anyways.

    I think he is a great actor and SUPER hot!

  • lorena

    Amo a Matthew Fox, me encanta su actuación, lo conoci atravez de la serie Lost, y me considero una fans hoy en dia, ademas esta muy bueno!!!…Lore

  • Dude

    If you think he can’t laugh of himself, you’re wrong. Look at the Saturday Night Live show he was is.
