Matt Damon Apologizes For His Comments About Diversity in Film

Matt Damon has just released a statement apologizing for the controversial comments he made on Project Greenlight about diversity in film.

“I believe deeply that there need to be more diverse filmmakers making movies. I love making movies. It’s what I have chosen to do with my life and I want every young person watching Project Greenlight to believe that filmmaking is a viable form of creative expression for them too,” the 44-year-old actor told Just Jared in a statement.

“My comments were part of a much broader conversation about diversity in Hollywood and the fundamental nature of Project Greenlight which did not make the show. I am sorry that they offended some people, but, at the very least, I am happy that they started a conversation about diversity in Hollywood. That is an ongoing conversation that we all should be having,” Matt concluded.
