Matt Damon and wife Lucy at the Promised Land premiere: lovely couple?

These are some photos from the LA premiere of Promised Land, co-starring and co-written by Matt Damon and John Krasinski. It’s out in limited release on December 28th and in wide release on January 4th, just in time to give us some diversion in the post-holiday season. (I can’t believe how fast this year has gone!) I really love Matt’s wife’s Lucy’s cranberry one-shoulder gown. It looks like something Michelle Obama would wear the hell out of, and on Lucy it’s just as pretty. Her bold statement jewelry is the perfect compliment to this very striking dress. I want that gorgeous gold bangle!

In terms of news about Matt Damon, he’s hustling and promoting this film, and giving some good quotes. In an appearance on The Late Show he called John Krasinski the next George Clooney, basically:

We [wrote the movie] really fast. John’s a super talented guy. When I met George Clooney years ago everybody knew him as the guy from ER and he was very famous for that, but Steven Soderbergh worked with him and instantly formed a company with him because he could just see how talented the guy was. And people’s perception of him wasn’t how the perception would be a dozen years later. And that’s how I feel about Jon. He’s great on the show The Office, but that’s just as piece of what he’s going to do.

Leave it to Damon to expertly talk up two friends at once. Clooney and Damon may soon be co-stars again. Damon is said to be in talks to join the film Monuments Men, which tells the true story of people who worked to recover priceless art stolen by the Nazis during WWII.

Also, I have to link to this Today Show segment Damon did a couple of days ago with an etiquette expert. He was hilarious. If you don’t have time, fast forward to about 5:50 to hear Matt make a joke about tossing salads. He’s awesome.

Also at the premiere was Luke Evans. He isn’t in this film but he’s just so attractive I had to post his picture.

And Bill Paxton! He’s not in this either. Movember was not kind to him.

John Krasinski looking lonely. I wonder why his wife Emily Blunt wasn’t there to support him? According to IMDB she’s in All You Need is Kill with Tom Cruise and it’s filming now. Although Paxton is also in that film and he showed up at the premiere. And why is Frances McDormand not showing up to any of these premieres? She needs to step up. Is there some kind of beef with her and Damon and/or Krasinski?

Here’s Rosemarie DeWitt and Ron Livingston. Another adorable couple.

    Matt is looking ruff. Back in the day he was so hot. John looks good. Love him

    • Emma - the JP Lover says:

      Geez you guys are fickle. Matt is looking ‘rough’ because he just finished re-shoots for an action film called “Elysium” (written and directed by the Neil Blomkamp, who also wrote and directed “District 9″). The film was supposed to open in March 2013, but Sony has moved it to August 2013 after seeing early trailers and the positive feedback from Comic Con.

      His bald head was for that film, which is why he was bald again a few weeks back, and why his hair is just growing back.

      Matt is still hot. :)

    Mmmmm… Luke Evans… nuf said.

    Emily Blunt is filming in London. Frances McDormand attended the NY premiere, but didn’t pose for many photos. Matt said Frances agreed to do the film on the condition she wouldn’t do any press.

        I wish we could dive into some coffee, rumors and speculations. Please?

      • Emma - the JP Lover says:

        This whole ‘Matt Damon is a closet gay with a male Latin Lover he keeps in a guest house in Florida’ rumor (thanks again to the often wrong, yet adored, Lainey) is the biggest load of B.S. to come about in a long, long time.

        Along with the Jolie-Pitts, Matt Damon is another actor who actually likes and ‘wants’ his family with him when he travels/works. That’s getting harder to do with his girls, except for the littlest one, in school, but they certainly traveled with him during the time this ‘Cuban lover’ crap started … and they’d already moved to New York City when he was ‘supposedly’ sneaking off to see his male lover in their Florida ‘getaway’. What a load of crap.

        Damon has never pinged for me. With all the people hating on him you’d think his fictional ‘other, hidden life’ would have been exposed in major tabloids rather than the nasty, whispered rumors sprouting up here and there by small-minded people ready to believe anything on a gossip site.

        The only ‘Cuban’ Matt had any dealings with in Florida was Lucy’s ex-husband, who is the father of her oldest daughter and was the reason the Damons stayed in Florida as long as they did, so that their/Lucy’s oldest daughter could keep a relationship going with her father.

        I’ll bet that’s how this whole stupid thing started.

      • mssnarnd says:

        Matt, you’re wanted on the set.

    • maryfrann says:

      That silly rumor gets brought up by rightwingers whenever they’re trying to attack Matt because of this politics. Interesting – but not suprising – that they think the word “gay” is an appropriate way to attack people. They also call him a communist – he’s not that either.

    • rose says:

      The only gay one who is confirmed to be gay in those pics is Luke evens. Although he denies it now but there are ACTUAL interviews of him talking about sexuality.

    • riri says:

      Ever since he got together/ “picked her as his beard”, people are talking about him in that way.

      I always thought that it was odd how he was threatend by every girldfriend Ben used to have and how he really wanted to make sure there would be tension that will ruin Ben’s reletionships (like “dating” a former assistant of Ben in order to make sure she would still be around Ben and perhaps stir up tension when he was with Jen Lopez) and how he wanted him to think that his women are responsible for his career downs.

      The guy is supposed to be liberal and open, so it’s time for him to get out of the closet and walk the walk.

      I don’t judge her, though. She really needed the money, the green-card, and a father figure and financial support is good enough of a reason for a single mom who is in a difficult situation.

    I think Matt has a sty eye because his eyelid on the right in photos looks quite puffy, maybe the glasses are to distract us. Because really those glasses are professor fug.

  6. PrettyTarheel says:

    John Krasinski needs to tell the makeup artist to back the eff up with the pore minimizer and loose powder. He looks more made up than most of the women on this carpet.

  7. Fran says:

    She reminds me of Gaga!!! Must be the mouth and sloopy eyes!

  8. Starlight says:

    Matt’s wife is so lovely.

  9. k says:

    I enjoy Clooney and Krasinski, but can you call them talented when they basically just play versions of themselves in every piece?

  10. roxy750 says:

    Whenever I see pics of Damon and his wife I just get rubbed the wrong way. I feel he thinks he is SO cool and better than everyone and his wife is his little piece he owns. As if he has everything ALL together and is real cocky and arrogant. I bet he’s an ass. That’s my vibe, I could be completely wrong but I don’t like him.

  11. KellyinSeattle says:

    I love Lucy.
    Do she and Matt have any kids? Just wondering….
    I love John K, too. Never have really been a fan of Matt, though.

    • Emma - the JP Lover says:

      @KellyinSeattle …

      Matt and Lucy have four daughters. The oldest girl, Alexa, is from Lucy’s first marriage and the other three girls are Matt and Lucy’s.

      Their first daughter, Isabella, was born in 2006 (two and a half weeks after Shiloh Jolie-Pitt). Their second daughter, Gia, was born in 2008 (one month after the Jolie-Pitt twins). Their third daughter, Stella, was born in 2010.

    I like him enough but I just can’t shake off the way he broke up with Minnie Driver

    I know that was ages ago but that was such douchey move
