Damonbucket

Hunky superstar and humanitarian Matt Damon didn't just take on the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, he took on the global issues of sanitary water and drought. Damon is a co-founder of Water.org, a non-profit working toward providing clean water for the nearly 800 million people who currently do not have access to it; he is also a Californian well-aware of the horrendous drought currently impacting millions of Golden State citizens. So, rather than waste more of that precious, clean H2O, why not borrow some from the toilet while taking a stand against ALS? 

That's right. Watch Matt Damon douse himself in toilet water for a good cause, AFTER THE JUMP...

Douglas

Michael Douglas won an Emmy award tonight for his performance as Liberace in Behind the Candelabra and summoned some innuendo for his acceptance speech in which he shared the award with Matt Damon.

"This was a two-hander, and Matt, you're only as good as your other hand....You were magnificent, and the only reason I'm standing here is because of you. So, you really deserve half of this. Do you want the bottom or the top?"

Elton John Balks at Suggestion He Never Knew Liberace Lived a Gay 'Lifestyle': VIDEO

Elton

At tonight's 2013 Emmy Awards, Matt Damon and Michael Douglas introduced Elton John, who performed his track "Home Again" as a tribute to Liberace, but not before balking at a speech — which perhaps he had never read — which used the word "lifestyle" to refer to Liberace's sexuality and also suggested that Elton had no idea he was gay.

Quipped Elton when he got to that line in the speech: "Yeah right. Um...oh well!"

Matt Damon: 'It's Safe to Say I Won't Be Robin'

Batman

Matt Damon talks to The Times of India about the possibility that he'd play Robin to Ben Affleck's Batman:

"I am a little older than Ben. I never saw Robin as older than Batman. Somebody sent me a picture actually (of his face photoshopped on Robin's body and Ben's on Batman's). It was really funny. But it's safe to say I won't be Robin."


Weekend Movies: A Ticket To 'Elysium'

  Elysium-matttatt
Matt Damon has a gym membership but no healthcare in "Elysium"

BY NATHANIEL ROGERS 

In the future everyone has trouble finding good healthcare, there is no middle class, and Los Angeles is a cesspool. So far, so believable. By the future you mean next week, right? Dystopian fantasies work best when they prey on current fears and exaggerate like a mofo. ELYSIUM knows just where we hurt, aiming squarely for our have-not wounds. Though there is no direct talk of politics in Neil Blomkamp's action flick / sci-fi allegory, this 22nd century Earth is a place where the Right Wing have obviously long since won the political wars. The Koch Brothers and Friends, the "Corporations are People!" set, have vacated the filthy planet altogether to rule from afar and horde their wealth. They orbit the earth in mouthwatering luxury aboard the titular space station Elysium which spins like a pricey slo-mo hamster wheel (think 2001: A Space Odyssey. Add bling, swimming pools and golf courses), though it's undoubtedly the 99% who are powering it with their sweaty manual labor.

One such laborer is Max DaCosta (Matt Damon) who is foolishly hoping to 'work his way up' and buy a ticket to Elysium. He's an ex-con, though, and delusional about his future prospects. Even his childhood love Frey (Alice Braga), a stand-up citizen and steadily employed nurse can't afford to move there. In the future good health care is only available to the 1% despite technology so advanced that anything this side of death is instantaneously curable (think magic not medicine) and Max and Frey are out of luck. Socioeconomic mobility is as extinct as the weird animals that Max and Frey look at in picture books as children in flashbacks -- what the hell is a giraffe?

And also: why is Jodie Foster so pissed off??? MORE AFTER THE JUMP...
