We already knew that pampered, left-wing Hollywood celebs like Matt Damon were not living in the real world. But when they forget that their on-screen alter egos are fantasy, they get carried away into lunacy. I mean, I already tired of Damon’s political preachery and the overt left-wing agenda of his “The Bourne Ultimatum,” but this is ridiculous:
“Bond is an imperialist and a misogynist who kills people and laughs about it, and drinks Martinis and cracks jokes,” Damon told reporters.
“Bourne is a serial monogamist whose girlfriend is dead and he does nothing but think about her.”
He added that Bourne “doesn’t have the support of gadgets, and he feels guilty for what he’s done”.
Yup, if he ain’t a sensitive girlie-man who hates himself and America, than he ain’t a spy of the modern day. So sez Hollyweird.
Quick, somebody, resurrect masculinity in Hollywood. Please. Clearly, Matt Damon resides in some parallel universe, where fictional movie characters really are real. Apparently, he’s having lunch with Han Solo and Indiana Jones at The Ivy, even as we speak. in his universe, Damon’s more heroic than both of those male chauvinists, not just the one draft-dodging actor who played them.
Time for Jason Bourne, er . . . Matt Damon, to retire to a “The View” co-hostess position. He’d fit in very nicely. He’s quickly become The Bore Identity–not to mention, The Boor Identity.
Thanks to Menorah Blog for the tip.
**** UPDATE: Someone challenged my assertion that Daniel Craig also has a Damon-sized ego. Well, I think the nude photos of Craig (that you can find by searching on Google images) show us that he thinks far too much of himself. Sorry, but I didn’t need to see James Bond naked. TMI (Too Much Information). Someone get him some clothes.
