Matt Damon Responds to Lena Dunham's Concerns Over 'Jason Bourne' Gun Posters
“Hey New Yorkers, what if we do some peeling and get rid of the guns in the Jason Bourne subway ads,” Girls director and writer Tami Sagher wrote on Instagram. “So tired of guns.” Lena commented on the post, “Good idea … Let’s go!”
Matt was asked in a recent interview with E! News about Lena‘s sentiments, and said, “I totally get it. I mean especially given what’s going on recently, and I get not wanting to see a picture of a gun right now, and I don’t blame her at all. I mean for the marketing purposes of Jason Bourne—I mean he is a guy who runs around with a gun, so it’s not gratuitous marketing, but certainly in light of recent events I understand that impulse to want to tear the gun out of the picture.”
