Matt Damon Highlights Worldwide Hunger Issues

Matt Damon hangs out on the set of The Adjustment Bureau in Manhattan on Monday (November 9) before taking off in a Cadillac Escalade.

The 39-year-old actor’s co-star, Emily Blunt, recently sat down with MTV to talk about what to expect from the film.

“It’s like a modern love story, but it’s got an ominous sci-fi backdrop to it,” said Emily, who plays a dancer. She explained that that she was the one who had to get in shape for the film instead of Matt. “Matt is actually thrilled that for the first time it’s me who has to do that kind of thing and he’s got off scot free,” she laughed.

Below is a video that Matt narrated for the U.S. Department of State, focusing on food security and combating global hunger.

    seems like a nice guy

  • I HATE CELEBRITIES

    ‘It’s like a modern love story’. Ha Ha. What woulf Mr FAKE marriage know about that.

    Matt Damon makes 20 million dollars for mediocre and violent films.
    .
    If he cared for real, he could have easily given 10 million dollars per each film, without let it affect his life-style.
    .
    But he is about the publicity and building the persona that is not him, like his fake marriage, and pretending to care about sleezy bars with his pals.
    .
    Would the real Matt Damon please stand up?

  • Love Matt

    I don’t care about world wide hunger. I care about the hunger right around the corner. I’m sick of Damon and his Hollywood ilk going all over the world helping others where there is so much need here. Children in this country need adoption, food, health care and security; that is more pertinent. We can’t help others when our bellies are empty.

    sarah,
    the U.S. is actually part of the world – the hunger campaign helps people everywhere. I hope that alleviates your concern

    Another celebrity living deep back in his closet. No beard parade this time. Bummer.

    I’m kinda sick of the activist celebs. Bono wants to save Africa yet his new U2 tour requires 200 trucks to ship the stage cross-country. He is equally bad as any corporation or industrial factory. They want regular americans to sacrifice, but they aren’t willing to change their behavior because it means they lose money. There are a lot of serious issues in the USA and urban america that need funding.

    Go, Matt! Damon is the BEST model of a celebrity – he’s smart, talented, self-effacing AND he uses his celebrity in the most effective manner to bring about the greatest good. Many celebs have simply jumped on the do-good band wagon, but Matt is the real deal. And don’t kick Bono, he was an activist LONG before it was fashionable.

  • piranha

    I am upset the beard did not make it to the set this time. I miss her. She usually brings the kiddies too to emphasize that the marriage is “real.” Probably at home checking to see that her direct deposit was made on time.

    At Woodland Hill Montessori School, our Middle School students have been working on their own water project with their sister school in Babati, Tanzania. Check out their progress! So far a well has been put in place so the children no longer have to carry water two miles every day. A self-sufficiency playground that produces solar power for the school rooms will also pump water from their new well using the kid-powered merry-go round. This is a fantastic project you have to see to believe. Eight Woodland Hill students traveled with teachers and parents to Tanzania and are in the process of raising funds to return in July 2010.

    These children have embraced the idea that they absolutely CAN change the world.

    Mr. Damon, you are formally invited to visit our school any time to see the prototype of the playground. We built one similar to the one that will be installed in Babati. Ours has the capacity to pump thousands of gallons of water a day! With the help of Sabre Technologies (one of our parents is the CEO) the playground was installed and is able to generate solar power to be stored in the tower and used to light the outside basketball courts.

    The project has taken on a life of its own. Feel free to contact our school to arrange a tour, next time you’re in New York.

    P.S. Invite George Clooney (a former Montessori student) to join you.
