Matt Damon Brings 'The Informant!' to Venice!

Matt Damon Brings 'The Informant!' to Venice!

Matt Damon and his wife Luciana attend the photo call for his new movie, The Informant!, at the Palazzo del Casino during the 66th Venice Film Festival on Monday (September 7) in Venice, Italy.

In the movie, the 38-year-old actor plays agribusiness firm executive Mark Whitacre, who labels himself Agent 0014, “because I’m twice as smart as James Bond.”

Variety has a review of Damon‘s performance in the movie: “Damon is in very sharp form in his fifth film with Soderbergh. The thesp makes Mark brazen in his conviction that he’s always right and unremorseful about his fabrications, but never in a superior, hubristic manner; as is slowly revealed, he’s always been able to rationalize any alteration of reality that served his purposes, and even when faced with his own deviousness, he never doubts that, “I’m the good guy in all this.”

    that is a married couple who are in love and who actually enjoy being together. ben and jen do not look like they’re in love.

    Matt can do what he wants since he doesnt have the JLo baggage Ben has. Ben has to keep his private and personal life separate from his professional life since he didnt do it before. He doesnt want to become another Brandgelina. Its working since nobody calls him and Jennifer Garner Bennifer II, they are not seen as one big conglomerate. THey have said they will never walk the carpet together, doesnt make them any less a couple than the nobody and Matt Damon. I’ve heard a lot more rumors about Matt’s extracurricular activites than Ben’s anyway.

    He is banging the Cuban pool boy according to Lanie Gossip.

    great actor

    I quote:
    The first is a happy father, settled down and reformed, bankable and respected at the same time… a major player. Which is why it’s so important that he keeps his Cuban male lover hidden away to be enjoyed when he’s not on location. It might seem risqué, having his secret stashed so close to home and his official partner, but he’s hot and horny, and it’s not like he’s not living in a freestyling environment, although I have to tell you, this one really, really surprised me. He plays it so well. And in the end, if it wasn’t such a fraud, it totally wouldn’t matter. He is the nicest, nicest person. Kind and considerate and generous… makes me sad he’s forced to live a lie.
    Been revealed as Damon

    LET'S GET REAL Says:


    Oh please.. that rumor was also rumored to be about Hugh Jackman.. I don’t believe for one minute it is Matt D.

    I think he is a settled man and very happy with his family. She is not in the business and I really think Matt likes it that way. she seems content to be the wife and Mother.. more power to them. I plan on seeing this movie. It looks cute and funny.

    Leave Matt alone.. I like him more then Ben.. Casey is the one I just love.. I will admit Ben is a very good Director.. Gone Baby, Gone was outstanding..

    M Says:

    Hugh already has a boyfriend. And he lives with him. The blind is referencing Damon

    anon Says:

    In the end his life is his business and no one elses. He doesnt fame chase and pimp out his kids like so-called fleating realty show stars and does alot for good causes. His job is to make movies and I will see this new one…the rest I will leave to tabloid fodder and wish him the best.

    Menie Says:


    WTF??? What has this got to do with ben or casey affleck? It just goes to show how easy it is to fool the public by holding hands and all of a sudden they become “a couple obviously in love” WHEN SHE’S HIS BEARD! Ben and Casey Affleck maybe good friends with Matt but THEY ARE STRAIGHT HONEY!!!

  15. 15
    Menie Says:

    To anon: I agree his life is his business but like the blind says, its his FRAUD of a life that is disturbing because people would still embrace him as an actor (see Dougie Howser). So stop the pretending please Damon~!

    she-whom-shall-not be named Says:

    I admire Matt for being a successful Hollywood star but he still could make his mariage work with an average Jane from outside the biz. It looks like they have a solid marriage and they have proven to the world that a relationship can still have longevity despite one spouse being more successful and they have a way of keeping the media out of their life. Im tired of hearing every tv biographies using ‘success’ as an excuse to explain stars’ failed relationships with their Hollywood ex-spouses

  17. 17
    I disagree Says:

    @she-whom-shall-not be named:
    Its better for a woman to hve her own success as her own person rather than being attached to somone successful because when it goes away, and it will, she will have absoultely nothing except the kids. Woman will never learn not to lean on a man for validation. I dont respect a woman without a career. Or a man for that matter (K-Fed)

    Oh you guys all need to stop this.
    If you haven’t noticed , Gossips have problem with family men. Look at Brangelina , Look at Hugh look at Ben Affleck and look at TomKat and now Matt Damon. What do you think these guys have that other people don’t have? You are right family.
    Ted C and other gossiper have problem with settled down men. Look at all these break up rumors for 5 or 6 years about Brangelina For 5 years , has it ever stopped? no, Look at these gay rumors about Hugh and Matt that lainey and Ted C are making. Ted makes every single man in HW gay because he is GAY and wants to have sex with these hot men .and look at these marriage problems about Ben and Tom.
    They make it because this ugly world HollyWeird has problem with no story behind it’s super stars. Do you think these men being happy and settled down will work for HW gossipers and tabloids? Why don’t they go after without family men , like George clooney? You all are falling for their tricks.
    If you look more closely at these gossips , they all are about men or women with family not seperate man or the one without family. HW embraces lonely and desparate women or men and tries to give this impression to you to love them and find men or women for them but have problem with married men and always try to tear couples up to have stories for a while.

    Linda Says:

    @National Reader: Yeah you actually make a lot of sense. Gossips ARE either dried up lonely women or (mostly) Gay men. A family man that is happy is no juicy story, that’s true. One thing I don’t agree with you on though is Bradgelina is not a family man.

    Love Matt and love his wife. She is supportive but stays out of the limelight. Think he is a great actor and a great father.

    congrats Says:

    According to all the industry ubuzz, Matt will be nominated for this performance in The Informant.

    National Reader Says:

    Brangelina is not a family man? Really Linda? I’m not one of Brangelina’s loonies but i would call them a very good family. They hardly do anything without their family. But i know you may be one of Brangelina’s hater and i don’t care and i’m not one of those loonies to try to change your mind about them But in all fairness Brangelina have created a good family and actually try to put their family first and i saw that through their actions and how they all go to different locations whenever one of them is working But well you have your own opinion and it doesn’t affect mine’s. Have a great day. Peace.

    Linda Says:

    Haha. I meant they are not a man – Brangelina is two people – Brad and Angelina. Its like they have become one conglomerate, fused as one person.
