Matt Damon: Brad Pitt Threw A Cheeseburger at Paparazzi!

Matt Damon: Brad Pitt Threw A Cheeseburger at Paparazzi!

Matt Damon takes the cover of Parade‘s latest issue, out this Sunday, December 11.

Here’s what the 41-year-old actor had to share:

On paparazzi hounding his famous friends: “Brad [Pitt] threw a cheeseburger at somebody. The guy had followed him to the drive-thru and Brad was like, ‘Can I just eat my cheeseburger?’ … They both looked at each other in total shock for a long moment. Neither of them could believe that it happened, you know? And then the guy went to raise his camera, and Brad sped off. So he did not get the picture. Brad left that experience feeling like, ‘Well, I didn’t get to eat my cheeseburger. I really wanted it.’”

On staying away from shirtless scenes: “On the first Bourne movie, I was in the best shape of my life, and we purposely never did a shot of me with my shirt off. There’s one scene where [Bourne’s lover] is pulling the shirt over my head, but what the camera sees are the two bullet holes in my back. It’s not gratuitous; there’s a point to it. I try to stay away from the beefcake shots.”

On raising four daughters ranging in age from 13 months to 13 years: “The only way I can describe it – it sounds stupid, but – at the end of How the Grinch Stole Christmas, you know how his heart grows, like, five times its size? Everything is full; it’s just full all the time.”

    I know Matt means well is telling a story but Brad has enough problems with the paps he doesn’t need his friends recounting the story to media. Geez the man can’t even eat his damn burger in private.
    Matt is cool and a great family man but stop with the name dropping, he is just like Paltrow….they just love to talk about their famous friends.

  • Disappointed

    When did Matt become such a name dropper? Seems like dude can’t promote anything without throwing it out there that he is close to Brad. We get it Matt…Brad is your best friend. Now can we talk about something else? Sheesh!

  • pickles

    I love this man!!! He has such a nice personality and he seems like such a fun, good person. His wife and kids are really lucky. I never miss any of his movies!!! He’s cooler than most of these other guys put together.

  • Stop talking about Brad!

    Not only can he not eat a cheeseburger in peace, but now he can’t even throw a cheeseburger in peace, thanks to his “friend” Matt

    If Brad has a problem with what Matt said, don’t you think he’ll let Matt know? I think the issue Brad has is with FREAKS like the ones here who salivate at any mention of him, good or bad. The paps wouldn’t need to harass him if it wasn’t for lunatics like you all who freak every time him or his family is mentioned. Breathe and go find a hobby!

    I don’t think Damon drops Pitt’s name as a name dropper. He is fiercely protective of his friends and if you look at other things he has said about Brad being stalked by the paps–I think he is trying to be protective of him. He, George and Brad are great friends. They talk about each other and stand up for each other. What is wrong with that?

  • jmho

    If you guys can’t see what’s wrong with telling the whole world about what was probably an embarrassing moment for your friend then I don’t know what to say. Obviously losing your temper is never something that anyone including Brad would be proud of. Sheesh.

  • jk

    I like how he described his family.

  • nina

    Didn’t like him when he talked about BRAD & family being constantly hounded by paparazzo. He said the reason to be hounded by paps is when someone involves themselves in sex or scandals. What scandals after Brad and Angie met seveny years ago?? They are hounded because BRANGELINA have been and are still a TOP selling brand for tabloids.

    His own wife was a bartender?? and had a girl before they got together!! why can’t he be honest about himself before throwing mud at others? Matt we respect you-Stop talking non sense or using Brad’s name when promoting your lousy movies-period.

    everytime matt opens up his mouth he puts his foot in it. as far as his wife goes ;he couldnt even do a 5 minute skit for S.N.L. without her butting in.
