Matt Damon Covers 'GQ' January 2012

Matt Damon Covers 'GQ' January 2012

Matt Damon flashes his pearly whites on the cover of GQ‘s January 2012 issue, on newsstands Tuesday (December 20).

Here’s what the 41-year-old We Bought A Zoo actor had to share:

On President Obama‘s dig on his film The Adjustment Bureau: “I have to say, it was pretty funny. Whoever came up with it, it was a terrific joke.”

On the Bourne trilogy and choosing not to continue with the franchise: “If you look at the first three movies, we kind of pounded that idea of identity and amnesia into the ground. We really got everything out of it that we could. So to reboot it, we need to come up with something completely new.”

On the new Bourne writer Tony Gilroy: “I don’t blame Tony for taking a boatload of money and handing in what he handed in. It’s just that it was unreadable. This is a career-ender. I mean, I could put this thing up on eBay and it would be game over for that dude. It’s terrible. It’s really embarrassing. He was having a go, basically, and he took his money and left.”

    his comments ‘sound’ passive aggressive

    Matt apologised for his comments about Gilroy later in the article.

  • QQQQ

    I am surprised he didn’t mention Brad Pitt or Ben A.. since he can’t seem to do an interview with doing that.

  • http://Tj S l i g ^_________^ cute

    Not nooo not good

  • AH

    First of all he wasn’t talking about the new Bourne movie, he was talking about the last one. Also, it is public knowledge (something that Gilroy confirmed in an interview while doing publicity for Michael Clayton) that Gilroy only did one draft for Ultimatum.
