Matt Damon Responds to Lena Dunham's Concerns Over 'Jason Bourne' Gun Posters

Matt Damon is responding to Lena Dunham‘s call to get rid of guns in the Jason Bourne subway ads.

“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.”

Also pictured inside: Lena, wearing an A.L.C. top, and Adam Driver filming Girls in Brooklyn, New York on Tuesday (July 19).

    Léna was in Bad Blood video.A video who glorified the guns and the violence

  • Little Paper Stars

    He was very polite about that. It’s hideous what’s going on in the world at the moment, it is, we all hate it, no one denies that but we’re also in danger of becoming so hyper sensitive to things. I hate guns too, I hate what they’re capable of, but Bourne is a film, it’s not reality, there needs to be a seperation. I pay no attention to Lena Dunham, has she spoken or been offended at all about this weeks UnReal which was startlingly on the nose, more so than a poster of Matt Damon with a gun.

    American people are just amazing: they bother about removing guns from posters or delaying shows about guns instead of caring about the way weapons are easily selled.

  • HG

    Lmao at these stupid celebs , they sell guns in their movies and expect kids and others to not watch and think it’s cool. They have no problem collecting money from said gun movies to live a lavish life style but say guns are bad in Interviews.

    Too bad Matt Damon doesn’t ever put his money where his mouth is.
