Matt Damon: tabs make up stories about Brad, Angelina & Aniston. They keep it going


Note that I wrote most of this story focusing on the angle that Damon is leaving the door open to return to the Bourne franchise, and explaining his beef with the current writer/director. Then I listened to the full interview and he gave more quotes about Brad and Angelina, yet again. So if you’re interested in that part of the story and don’t give a whit about Bourne, you can skip to the end, the part after the second line.


I love KCRW’s The Business, and I often download the podcast, (I’m like Britta) so this interview with Matt Damon, which aired yesterday, was a treat. On The Business, Damon explained why he made those comments to GQ trashing the Bourne screenwriter and he said that he’d love to reprise his role.

To recap – in GQ Damon was quoted as saying that screenwriter Tony Gilroy handed in a script for Bourne Ultimatum (the third movie, he also wrote the other two and the upcoming fourth, starring Jeremy Renner as another spy) that was “unreadable.” Damon said “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.” Later in that GQ article, the journalist explained that Damon called him up afterwards and tried to smooth over his statements. Damon said “If I didn’t respect [Gilroy] and appreciate his talent, then I really wouldn’t have cared.. My feelings were hurt. That’s all. And that’s exactly why I shouldn’t have said anything..” Only of course GQ still ran those quotes, because they were awesome.

On The Business, Damon gave the background for why he said all that about Gilroy: he was filming another movie that just happened to be right next to the offices for the fourth Bourne film. Gilroy is both writing and directing this version, which Damon clearly considers a travesty. He’s loyal to director Paul Greengrass (who also has issues with Gilroy) and has said that he’ll do another Bourne movie only when Greengrass is on board.

In a radio interview with this reporter for KCRW’s The Business, Damon explains that he was caught off guard in Vancouver on the set of his next film, Neill Blomkamp’s Elysium, when he found himself next to the just-opened offices for The Bourne Legacy, the fourth movie in the franchise, which is being written and directed by Gilroy — and has no role for Damon.

Those offices “opened up right outside my trailer,” says Damon. “I was seeing this every day, and then I came back to New York and did this interview and kind of blurted it out. … It was idiotic of me to say anything. At the end of the day, it’s between me and Tony, and we’ll figure it out or we won’t.”

The sight of that office was so disturbing because of a deep years-long rift over who is the true keeper of the Bourne flame: Greengrass, who directed the second and third films to ever-growing grosses, or Gilroy, who has been a writer on every Bourne. As a result, it is not clear that Damon ever will reprise the Jason Bourne role, though he says that’s what he wants to do.

The first Bourne film, directed by Doug Liman, was a deeply troubled production, and Gilroy, along with producer Frank Marshall, pulled it back from the brink. But when Greengrass came on to direct 2004′s Bourne Supremacy, he and Gilroy began to loathe each other. “Paul and Tony have clashing styles,” says a source with knowledge of the conflict. “Tony does all the work before and delivers a finished script. Paul wants the script to be ever-evolving during shooting.” But Damon believes the director is king, and his loyalty was and is to Greengrass.

So Gilroy would not even have worked on 2007′s Bourne Ultimatum, except Greengrass couldn’t develop a script in the time allotted. And the clock was ticking: Not only had author Robert Ludlum’s estate imposed a timetable, but also the studio did not want to let Bourne disappear for too long. “It was an important franchise,” says Stacey Snider, then chairman of Universal. “We went to Tony and said, ‘Can you come up with something?’”

Gilroy did, and though Damon bashed him for walking away after writing one (allegedly lousy) draft, several sources including Snider say Gilroy had made it clear that he would do only one draft and possibly a revision because he was committed to his directing debut, Michael Clayton.

Damon’s allegation that the draft was “unreadable” is something that Snider and others dispute. Universal co-chairman Donna Langley says she was “thrilled with the script Tony submitted and greenlit the film based on that script.” (Greengrass subsequently brought in other writers, including Scott Z. Burns and George Nolfi, who were awarded credit alongside Gilroy.)

Bourne Ultimatum grossed a robust $443 million worldwide, and Universal naturally wanted another movie. The studio had backed Greengrass in making the $100 million-plus bomb Green Zone with Damon in hope of keeping them on board for the next Bourne. But again, Greengrass failed to come up with a workable script in the time
allotted.

In November 2009, with Greengrass still uncommitted, top Universal brass — Ron Meyer, Adam Fogelson and Langley — flew to New York, took Damon to dinner and explained that they wanted to move ahead. Damon said that for him, there was no Bourne without Greengrass.

After that, says Langley, the Ludlum estate turned again to Gilroy, who had an idea for a script. This one would focus on another agent (Jeremy Renner) but leave the door ajar for Damon’s character to return. To Damon’s camp, this seemed like good news because Universal had considered pulling a “Bond,” simply replacing Damon in the lead.

Fast-forward to October 2010, when news broke that Gilroy would write and direct the next movie. No one from Universal had informed Damon that Greengrass was being replaced by his old adversary. The studio has not discussed it with him since. “It certainly wasn’t an omission for any reason,” says Langley. “You just have to move on with your business.” For now, she adds, “the franchise can live on [with Renner]. If at some point it can include Matt Damon, fantastic. If it can’t, we’re reconciled to that.”

Damon says he fully expects to return to Bourne. “I think if [Bourne Legacy] doesn’t work, we can just ignore it and pretend it didn’t happen, and that’d be fine,” he says. “But I expect that it will work and only help us if we did another one, which I’d love to do.”

[From The Hollywood Reporter]

To me the takeaway from this is that Damon really cares about Bourne, that he’s committed to that character, and that he’s open to doing another one. Whether that will ever happen given the complicated issues between director Greengrass and the studio remains to be seen. It is to Universal’s credit that they didn’t just replace his character with another actor. They’re going to make bank either way, and there’s no other Bourne than Damon.


There’s more in Damon’s interview with The Business, including how Cameron Crowe wooed him to play the lead in We Bought a Zoo. (Crowe brought Damon his intended soundtrack and a film called Local Hero that he wanted to capture the mood of.) Damon also talked about Brad and Angelina yet again and added Aniston in there for good measure. The dude has talking points. I’ve heard him repeat himself several times in this press tour. (He told the same story about a young barista in Starbucks to both Parade and on The Today Show.) So I don’t think he is fixated on Brad and Angelina so much as he just says the same things over and over again. (He also repeated on The Business the same thing he said on The Piers Morgan show about coming to terms with fame.)

On the paparazzi and Brad and Angelina
When there’s potential sex or scandal, that’s really what sells those magazines. My life now is so normal that it’s not really worth their money. They go after the picture that’s going to make the money. If you look at Brad and Angie, they’re not doing anything to encourage it and yet what these magazines do is they just make up new stories about Brad and Angelina and Aniston and like, that marriage ended 6,7, 8 years ago. I don’t know, but they just try to keep it going so those pictures are worth something. But in my case there’s just, I really lucked out. I fell in love with a woman who’s not in the business… When you have two actors who are kind of in the spotlight that really increases things.

On Ben Affleck’s tabloid predicament after J.Lo
That was horrible. During that time, talking to him, he was very… sober about what it meant for his career. He knew that it meant he was going into the penalty box for an undetermined amount of time. The worse place you could be is where you’re selling magazines instead of movie tickets. That’s really purgatory, it’s really tough to get out of that. The good news is that what it took for him to get out of there, was what it took for us to get our careers going in the first place. We had to write our way into the game. He had to do it again. With Gone Baby Gone, he wrote that and it was beautiful and he directed that… That still didn’t break him out of jail. He did Hollywoodland and he still couldn’t get out, so he finally did The Town. He wrote that, directed it and starred in it because it was the best acting job he could get, and he was great. And the movie was great, and now it looks like he’s back on the list.

[From KCRW's The Business]

We get it, Damon has a happy family, is a devoted husband and father and he’s above rapproach. I hope that’s true. I hope Lainey’s blind item about Cuba is in no way about him. Or if it is, that it’s not true. He’s awesome, even if he’s like a cranky old dude who tells the same stories every time you see him.

    *side eye* … Just talk about your life and stop mentioning your friends

  2. NotaBitterBetty says:

    Sorry but Damon sounds bitter over the Bourne thing. This, after all, is the franchise that revived his career. Good Will Hunting was a long, long time ago. Since then, what movie has he been in that’s been a box office performer outside of the Bourne and Ocean series? I would think the writer of the franchise has had a very big part in the success of the movies and while I can understand not liking the dude or having a better relationship with the director, making comments like he did just reeks of sour grapes and resentment. The Bourne franchise is going on without him and I think Damon will live to regret opting out. Also, why does it feel like he talks about Brad and Angie all the time? What, he wants to make sure he gets quoted on the blogs?

    • Scarlet Vixen says:

      I think he’s at a point in his career where he doesn’t need nor want to do big money-making movies. He’s certainly rich enough. And, after doing movies for the paycheck alot of actors do the movies that “speak to them” or whatever. He didn’t even do the Bourne films because they were big money-makers–he did them because he liked the story, and Paul Greengrass.

      If he’s the kinda guy to accidently shoot off at the mouth and say stuff that he’ll regret later or could damage his career (like he did about Gilroy) maybe that’s a good reason to have talking points. I read an article by Tom Hanks awhile ago where he talks about promoting a movie and all the traveling, press junkets, etc. and he explains how exhausting it is and how brain-fried you get. Having ‘talking points’ where you kind of already have semi-scripted answers to all these questions you get asked over and over again seems like a good idea to me. Then you always have something prepared, don’t have to think so hard, and you also don’t run as much risk of saying something stupid.

    • Alexis says:

      I disagree. If he kept going with it for too long he might end up looking silly, like Johnny Depp with Pirates.

    • Emma - the JP lover says:

      Jason Bourne is not in “The Bourne Legacy.” The book is about another CIA asset played by Jeremy Renner. If a 4th film with the Jason Bourne character is considered, I think Matt would be interested, he just wants, and has always wanted, to play the character ‘older.’

  3. normades says:

    I hate him without hair. Not a good look for him.

  4. Shay Kay says:

    Damon is for the most part a class act.He shouldn’t have blabbed about “The Bourne” problems but at least he owned up to the mistake and even explained why he did it.

  5. Talie says:

    Oh yeah, I remember that Cuba blind item for Matt…I believe it. But I think his wife knows and just deals with it. I mean, this woman used to be a single mother/bartender. Like she cares that he sleeps with a dude as long as she has security.

    • mimi says:

      It seemed that for years he was a little obsessed with Ben and made every effort to sabotage his love-life.

      To be honest, I always thought he liked guys and didn’t really like the ladies at all.

      Garner knew how to handle and keep him at bay the best than all other ladies…

      It’s kind of sad that a guy has to live like this.
      People come out of the closet in out generation. There’s no real reason to pretend nowadays- look at NPH. He is a huge star, plays a playboy on TV and everybody likes him (audience).

      Being gay didn’t harmed his career, this is 2011 (2012)!

    • Bodhi says:

      I very seriously doubt that either Damon of Clooney is gay.

      I don’t think that Lainey is reliable when it comes to blind items, or gossip for that matter. I don’t think she is anywhere near as connected as she touts herself to be

      • deltona lakes says:

        I agree with you Bodhi. For goodness sake she lives/works in Vancouver, Canada. Do you really think she has this great connection to HW and NYC?

      • Heather M (Heather) says:

        Thank you! I totally agree. It’s just a way to make rumors swirl to get people gossiping (and get them to return to the site for the upcoming “hints…”). I began reading them, but then it just became so obvious that most were likely fabricated. People believe them and then it becomes their “truth,” when I’ve never seen any evidence most of them were ever actually substantiated.

  6. TheOriginalKitten says:

    I don’t think we should sh*t on him for being honest about a common Hollywood practice–churning out crappy scripts and treating audiences like a bunch of morons. It’s his prerogative to not want to work on a movie that he thinks is garbage.

  7. Hello Kitty says:

    The Cuba blind riddle is about Hugh Jackman, although he’s no longer with his Cuban piece. Chocolate is George Clooney.
    Lainey revealed these at this year’s Smut Soirée.

    • Jenn says:

      Don’t know from blind items, but since when is Lainey any more reliable than the National Enquirer or Star? It is all gossip and guessing. I would not hold her out as some font of truth and reliability. She thinks she knows, but knows no more than we do, except to guess, just like the rest of us.

      • podzol says:

        Absolutely agree with you. In the grand scheme of things, I think of it as a school playground where things get discussed; some of it certainly has a ring of truth and others are distorted by way of telephone game and “my friend told my friend who told my friend” without much shred of evidence.

        The worse is when blind items (which themselves aren’t always accurate nor reliable) then become widely established as the truth with a capital T!

      • Emily says:

        Also: am I the only person who thinks it’s weird that EVERYBODY is gay in Blind Gossip Land?

  8. lisa says:

    I found it funny that he didn’t use Aniston’s first name..

  9. Lucy says:

    I get the feeling that it secretly pisses him off that the paps aren’t all over him like his friends Brad, George and Ben…

    • deltona lakes says:

      Especially Brad… He made a comment that when they were promoting one of the Oceans Movie in Japan he couldn’t believe how Brad was more popular and a bigger star than Clooney. He’s always injecting Brad’s name in every interview. In recent years, I can’t remember one article that he hasn’t brought up Brad and Angie. They are prisoners, Brad can’t walk across the street without traffic stopping, and so on..

  10. Victoria says:

    I don’t think Matt cares about the paps. He’s not the kind of guy. Glad Lainey let Damon off the hook, but sadly happy that it is Jackman and Clooney, because I so desperately want these two posers to be outed. They make me sick, especially Woody Allen lover Hugh.

  11. missy says:

    I don’t think so. There are stars who aren’t nearly as famous as him, but are papped regularly. If he wanted to be photographed, he would. I think he likes his privacy.

  12. poopie says:

    quit shaving your head for gods sake and he needs to STFU when it comes to anything political. he is an arrogant no nothing who spouts untruths. keep acting.

  13. Talie says:

    Actually, it was also reported that she revealed it as Damon, so…that’s weird. What would Hugh Jackman be reformed from, anyway? He never had any issues, he’s been married for a long time.

    • Emma - the JP lover says:

      Matt Damon hasn’t anything to be reformed from either, which is why I never bought that Lainey’s ‘Cuban Boy’ Blind item was about him (in fact, after the bogus rumor Lainey started about Michael C. Hall and Julia Stiles, I now take all of her gossip with a grain of salt). The only reason Matt and his family stayed in Miami as long as they did was because Lucy wanted her ex-husband to be a part of her oldest daughter’s life.

      Further more, the Damon family had already moved to New York City when this Blind Item broke, and the Blind made it seem like the ‘affair’ was still active and centered in Florida.

  14. valleymiss says:

    Does anyone else think it’s funny that Damon keeps yapping about how the tabloids make up stories about Brangelina to get attention, and then he goes and *talks about Brangelina in every interview to get attention*? It’s the same thing. He’s using Brangelina for attention the same way the tabloids are. Please.

    • lisa says:

      I wish he would stop talking about Brad and Angie. He is the one that said they were in a prison. Which got lots of attacks at them (WHO DIDN’T SAY THAT OR NEVER DID). I see that Brad nor Angie ever really mention their friends in interviews. So why must all these celebrities not just Matt.. George does a Brad name check a lot.. have to talk about them. Gosh get your own “swagger” stop dropping their names for press.

      regarding Ben.. he is of less interest because the new Jennifer he has built a life with is not as interesting as the old Jennifer. The paps take more pictures of her and the girls then they do of Ben. He and Jen as family is not as tabloid bait as he and JLo

    • Heine says:

      I think he’s talking about them to make a point about how tabloids are total nonsense and how he’s thankful that he married someone who wasn’t in the business because their pictures aren’t worth as much so the tabloids leave them alone.

    • pwal says:

      It’s very annoying when celebs ‘discuss’ the personal lives of other celebs, especially the celebs that they don’t hang around with. Matt Damon and fam don’t hang out with Brad and Angelina; George Clooney doesn’t either and yet…

      And on another note, Matt and family did vacation with Clooney and yet nary a Clooney mention from Damon’s lips. Personally, I see selected discretion as one celeb having something over the other (in this case, I think Clooney has something over Damon, hence Damon’s teenage girl-like gossipy patter is at bay).

      Of course, if, heaven forbid, the JPs go south, tabloids will go to the Damons and Clooneys because of the illusion that they are in the know.

      They are not.

      • Emma - the JP lover says:

        How do you know that Matt Damon and his family don’t hang out with the Jolie-Pitt family? Angelina has mentioned the fact that she and Brad are friends with Matt and his wife. Matt’s oldest two biological kids were born within three or four months of Shiloh and the twins. How do you know that the Jolie-Pitt kids didn’t have play dates with the Damon kids while Angie was in NYC recently promoting her film?

  15. Kara Ann says:

    Well, apparently, I love grumpy old men who repeat themselves (something I didn’t know about myself)! I guess he can up the old man angst (and thus my love) when he starts repeating stories that end in, “Then I said, GET OFF MY LAWN!” :)

  16. Mae East says:

    @CB: I love The Business, too! It’s gossipy, but also sort of substantial.

  17. NM9005 says:

    The Cuba-Chocolate history:

    http://laineyblinds.blogspot.com/2008/12/cuba-chocolate.html

    It’s Damon or Jackman.

    Didn’t Damon quit Bourne because they changed directors and such? It’s obvious he cares a lot for Jason Bourne and only wants to work with people he knows so he’s guaranteed to deliver quality work. Bourne is one of the best action stars ever so I guess Damon didn’t want to let it become a farce. Depp should take que and quit the Pirates series…

  18. Emma - the JP lover says:

    Celebitchy, the third Bourne film is “The Bourne Ultimatum not “The Bourne Supremacy.” “The Bourne Supremacy” is the second film.

    I don’t think Matt is throwing Tony Gilroy under the bus at all for a bad script. Gilroy’s contract with Universal to write “Ultimatum” contained a caveat stating that he would not be obligation to perform re-writes. In other words, he handed in a ‘sub-par’ script, took the money, and ran.

    The fact of the matter is that George Nolfi (who wrote and directed “The Adjustment Bureau) and Scott Z. Burns were hired to do re-writes of the Gilroy “Ultimatum” script. Both writers are also credited with writing the film.

    Didn’t anyone pay attention to the back and forth discourse between Damon, Paul Greengrass (who directed “Supremacy” and “Ultimatum”), and Universal in 2007 immediately after the success of “The Bourne Ultimatum?” Universal Studios wanted another Bourne film ASAP and wanted to write an original script using the Jason Bourne character. However, the Bourne character is owned by the Robert Ludlum Estate, and they refused to allow an original script with the character, saying they wanted the character to stay in the universe created by Robert Ludlum. That might also explain why the Jason Bourne character doesn’t appear in the 4th Bourne film “The Bourne Legacy,” based upon the book by Eric Van Lustbader.

    The Ludlum Estate ‘did’ offer Universal any of Robert Ludlum’s other novels to revamp for the Jason Bourne character. The thing is that when Universal offered Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass a boat load of money to sign on to a 4th film, they also gave them script approval.

    The script attempt for a 4th “Bourne” film based upon another Ludlum novel, and re-writes thereof, didn’t work for Damon or Greengrass, and the ‘time block’ both had cleared in their schedules to shoot the 4th film in 2010 passed. They couldn’t wait around any longer, as both had contracts for other film projects to honor.

    I’ve heard recently that Paul Greengrass has dropped out of any future Bourne project altogether. Damon has said that he would only do another Bourne film if Greengrass was on board as well, but perhaps he could be talked back to the character of Doug Liman (who directed “The Bourne Identity”) was on board instead. Quite frankly, I wouldn’t miss the Paul Greengrass ‘shaky Cam’ at all.

  19. Heather M (Heather) says:

    Love him.

    Incidentally, I don’t believe blind items, for the most part. It is totally a way to just make up a fabrication and then not get sued for it, and it makes my fellow gossips a bit paranoid, IMO.

  20. Lauren says:

    Matt with his Mute Cha-Cha baby machine..i am not blind. No Blind Items are needed to see the truth.

    • Sakyiwaa says:

      I totally agree. I mean, all i see is a man constantly patting himself on the back for avoiding being pap bait by marrying an unknown. Seems like he’s telling Ben and Brad it’s their fault for being with famous women… Wtf? Im beginning to think of him as some male Paltrow. Wow.

  21. Bubulle says:

    Lainey said it was Matt, Ted Casablancas also has an old BI allegedly about Matt, maybe I’m very guilable but I can’t imagine Matt being gay or bi, would be curious to know their source.

  22. mimi says:

    He is using his “friends” like Ben or Brad’s personal life to promote himself.

    That is pretty low in my book, especially since he is parading such a lovely and BS cover for his life and pretending to have this nice and perfect family life while smudging his friends as he reminds us of their “scandals” and presenting them in a negative light.

    I liked it when he was real about his feelings about the script.

    I think that might be the only part that was real in his entire talking points.

    Having said that, her earnings are GORGEOUS and make me understand why a single mom, poor immigrant who had to work in a bar, would agree to a fake marriage and to stand a guy with such ego who is also living a lie.

    Most people would say no, but I can see the perks that come with it.

    I do hope for Ben and Brad’s sake that they don’t consider him a real friend anyway.
    He is using them in a very cynical manner.

    • Emma - the JP lover says:

      I will never understand why it is that Jennifer Aniston is believed to be the ‘only’ celebrity who is just answering questions when discusses topics in her interviews, and everyone else is just blabbing for the sake of blabbing, or to be bitchy.

    • Pat says:

      I agree mimi, sometimes I think he likes reminding people of what a failure Ben was after that whole Jlo debacle, how Ben was reduced to a late night joke and couldn’t get a job to save his life no matter what he did. It’s like he’s saying “hey look at me and my charmed successful life and aren’t I a damn good actor, I made all the right decisions with my career!” It’s probably because he knows despite all Ben has been through, Ben is still better looking, more interesting and famous than Matt, Ben is so interesting even Matt can’t stop talking about him. Oh and everyone, please let’s all say HI to Lucy, Matt’s wife, because you know she reads this stuff. Maybe she can tell her husband to stick to talking about his boring self instead.

  23. manda says:

    So, what are the point of blind items, anyway? Do people make tips to gossip writers and not give the name? Or do gossip writers have to delete names sometimes because they worry about getting sued? Just wondering, if anyone has any thoughts!

  24. bitca says:

    My take is that having kept his private life out of the spotlight for years, he wants to keep it that way. But this may limit his ‘talking points.’ Seems very clever, really. He can spice things up by referring to common knowledge about more tabloid-ed colleagues, without being disloyal…. Cause when you think about it? Damon’s warm & fuzzy “gossip’ about fellow actors is NOT terribly gossipy.

    The screenwriter issue was a stumble—perhaps—but in the main this is quite a feat. These interviews are getting plenty of publicity, yet he hasn’t sold out his privacy to use it as a marketing tool.

  25. jane16 says:

    I don’t at all agree with him about Gilroy & Greenglass. I thought the first one was by far the best. I didn’t like the 2nd (they kill off the love interest?!? That he marries in the books?), but seriously disliked the 3rd. It was so annoying to watch, with that horrid jiggly, blurry camera action. We were at the premiere & heard a lot of comments afterwards, like, “it looked like it was filmed by a 90 yo with Parkinsons.” Stuff like that.

  26. whatevs says:

    let’s make it a new year’s resolution not to talk about the triangle-which-shall-not-be-named anymore

  27. sandy#1 says:

    i like matt, great family man, and actor, i believe he loves his life as is, i respect him for that.

  28. Penguin says:

    Love him. He shouldn’t apologise for having opinions.

  29. anonymous says:

    They should be more interviews like this, aren’t people interested in knowing just how movie stars really feel, instead of getting it from made up tab stories. I don’t know why anyone would criticize him when he is giving honest and realistic insight in people who we all know we are curious about. Go Matt give us more.

  30. Jennifer says:

    Really self righteous the way Damon and Affleck refer to JLo….graceless. You don’t say cutting things about your former relationships to some interviewer. It makes you seem weak when you complain about a relationship and you were an adult while in it.

    Damon and Affleck in particular talk about JLo in a dehumanizing way. She’s a frikkin person. the way they talk about her like she was this terrible “thing” that “happened” like some passing sickness or something is just gross to me. I don’t like JLo’s body of work but that’s beside the point…she’s a successful hard working power player, like them, and they know it.

    I cant stand these people in their 30s and 40s acting like they were 17 and under duress when they chose to be with somebody and then wahhing about it. Goddman. When they were like 30 year old successful multi millionares. In these relationships that were oh so beneath them.

    Affleck took himself too seriously if he thinks he had to work himself outta purgatory or change the public’s perception of him. IT’s not this dramatic story arc, oh my God, I fell from the grace of “Good Will Hunting” down to the dregs of JLo, and then worked myself back up to the heavenly light of being an “artiste”. Please. Nobody thinks like that except maybe hima nd Damon and a few others.
