Matt Damon in a uniform vs. George Clooney: who would you rather?

These are photos of Matt Damon and George Clooney on the set of The Monuments Men in Berlin, Germany. This is an unfair matchup for me to suggest, because when I first saw these photos of Matt Damon in a retro WWII uniform it’s like the heavens opened up and I heard angels singing. I freaking love Matt Damon, and I love a guy in uniform, and the two together is better than any gourmet chocolate and pretzel combination in the world.

Is it just me, or does every red-blooded woman do a double take when she sees a guy in uniform? I can’t help it, it’s like an ingrained response. I think I’m smooth about it, but the cops and the soldiers probably know. So it’s nice to be able to ogle at Damon from the privacy of my computer screen.

The Monuments Men is directed by Clooney and is about the recovery of stolen art by the Nazis. It’s coming out in mid-December, just in time to be considered for awards season next year. It surprises me that they’ll be able to push this film out in another eight or nine months, they must be really hustling to shoot scenes.

This is also an unfair matchup because it looks like Damon is in character as a hot soldier type while Clooney is just being a director who also has to look schlumpy for his character. Clooney looks bad with that greasy grey hair and grey mustache, but it’s somewhat passing for his “normal” look (it’s not!) since he’s wearing a modern civilian coat. So it’s a double whammy for him. Poor Clooney, having to console himself with a statuesque blonde and shots of high end tequila. I’d be up for that, I’d just rather be up for it with Damon.

Bonus Clooney shooting something looking fierce. This photo cracks me up.

    I don’t think Matt Damon is aging very well but I’d still do him. Ah, who am I kidding, I wouldn’t kick George Clooney out of my bed either…even with that creepy mustache. I know there’s speculation about both being gay but I don’t care, I’d beard for either.

      Do you think Lainey’s post on their “pillow fight” yesterday was a reference to/stoking of those rumors?

      • Miss M says:

        I think Lainey has been insinuating George is gay for years now… She thinks she has inside info like she is Ted Casablancas or Harvey Levin. She made a subtle comment after one of the festivals in 2011 that George was staring at Alex Skarsgard like a hawk or something to that effect.

        No wonder whenever she posts comments a*s kissing his girlfriend of the moment saying they are solid, he soon breaks up and vice-versa. As if his camp gives opposite info to her to make her look like a fool.

    Damon. He talks the talk and walks the walk. Clooney is a limo lib.

    • Me Three says:

      How is George Clooney a Limo Lib? For more than 10 years he’s been putting his money where his mouth is as far as Darfur. He was the first and only celebrity who even recognized there was a humanitarian crisis going on in the Sudan for many years. He has used his own money to purchase a satellite that is positioned above the border between South Sudan and The Sudan. He spends more than $10 million a year on that satellite alone.

      Okay, the guy’s dating life sucks. Yeah, he’s a womanizer but he’s not a limo liberal. He spoke up against the Iraq War when everyone else was going along to get along. He speaks his mind about his political beliefs even when it may not help him in his career.

      Yeah, Matt is also a really good guy who walks the walk but as far as trying to help people in this world, they’re equals. Matt’s just easier to like personally–he’s followed the traditional path in life–married with kids.

    I read that Matt is playing a Soviet soldier. But it does say “U.S.” on his collar, doesn’t it?

    OMG, George’s little Fairbanks moustache is KILLING ME. And his grampa shoes. No, seriously, my grampa wears those shoes.

    Matt. All day. All night.

    I’ve had it baaaaad for Matt Damon for a long time. There’s just something about him. Very sexy guy.

  8. V4Real says:

    Both and I’ll throw in Ben for the hell of it.

  9. Diana says:

    Georgie is looking rough. Matt is always lovely.

  10. Aqua says:

    It’s hardly a fair fight.I like both men,so I would choose either or.Now if you were taking about who wears a tux better,it would def. be Clooney.

  11. Slim Charles says:

    “stolen art by the Nazis” or “art stolen by the Nazi’s”

  12. Jen34 says:

    I never understood the lure of a man in uniform until I saw a Navy guy in his dress whites. I couldn’t tell you what his face looked like, but dear God, that body.

    I guess I’m in the minority, but that uniform does nothing for Matt.

    • bondbabe says:

      Umm, yes, Naval dress whites are superb! I had an absolute field day when my younger brother graduated from the Naval Academy. Everywhere I looked, young nubile men in their crisp, white uniforms. I should have worn a bib from all my slack-jaw slobbering!!!

    @Celebitchy …

    You and I continue to bond over our love of Matt Damon. :)

  14. Bodhi says:

    Like a house on fire. All day long. Matt Damon & Good Will Hunting is what made me fall in love with the idea of a blue collar Boston boy.

    I found my heavily tattood one (bonus!) & we have been married for 5 years & have our 2nd & 3rd kids on the way!

    So, thank you Matt Damon

  15. Sid'sbowl says:

    Matt Damon, Matt Damon, Matt Damon. A walking, talking dream come true. Sigh. Even more than strawberries and chocolate, which is really the ultimate in sensual experience.

  16. Me Three says:

    Kind of unfair comparison right now…George’s hair and mustache have ruined his usual sexy guy look. Once he shaves all of that off…I’d do him in a moment!

  17. Emily says:

    Meh. I’d love to have a drink with them, but I don’t find either of them particularly attractive. I prefer men who look more interesting. And in Clooney’s case, men who are not old enough to be my father.

  18. s says:

    did anyone in this thread say clooney? Matt, for sure.

  19. I Choose Me says:

    Oh damn. I swear he’s getting better with age. Matt + uniform = drool.

  20. Elizabeth says:

    George Clooney, hands down!
