Matt Damon's comments were sexist in every respect!!! As if he could do a better job "facing down" Putin??? I am a wife, soccer mom, and business owner and his comments were offensive. Matt keep your opinions to yourself, and try not to have such an 19th century attitude with your own daughters.

I'm glad to finally hear that Matt Damon has finally changed his focus, and is keeping his mouth shut. I don't care if he wants to support Obama, but his comments before about Palin crossed the line, and were offensive. Unfortunately for Matt his ugly side was revealed in that one interview and I think he has lost a lot of fans.

Matt Damon is a pussy. He is projecting when he calls Palin his rant of nasty, sexist names. What a pathetic, little puss. Guess he has to act pretty hard to play those tough macho roles considering he is such a scared, misogynistic pansy. I hope Matt Damon takes a long hard look in the mirror. He needs to shut his ugly face.

Disney does not make bad movies, but I hope the the only movies Matt gets offered are really bad B-movies!!!!! Is there really anyone out there who believes an actor is worth getting paid $20 million for 6 weeks of work!!!!!!!! We all really need to wake up and smell the coffee. I could not even tell you the last movie I paid to see in a theater, but I know some of them were crap and I leave thinking I can't believe I paid that money to see that stupid waste of film!!! At least the popcorn was good. Support your local libraries and pay $1.00 to rent a video there!!!

Okay it seems as if all of you scholars above dug real deep and as I suspected there was nothing there. Back up off of Matt Damon, he can share his thoughts if he wishes and the reason he draws such harsh critics is because people do listen when he speaks. I doubt that he is loosing sleep thinking that all of 4 people aren't going to see his movies. He is a good person and he does a lot of work with his movies pleasing his fans as well as important work around the world with his charities. When was the last time any of you helped raise $100 million for charity...that's what I thought so WHO should shut THEIR ugly face

Before getting on your soap box - learn how to spell!!! What is LOOSING, genius???? Get a clue and a dictionary! I don't have a problem with Matt proclaiming who he was going to vote for, but the comments that he made about Palin were out of line!!! You must have missed the interview he gave in Toronto. Any TRUE woman would be offended. Had he made some comment about Obama's race, religious background or ACORN he would have been arrested. So I prefer to support someone like Carrie Underwood. In a TV guide interview she just chose not to say who she was going to vote for. Thank you Carrie!!!! By the way if Matt is doing such a wonderful job with all of his charities why doesn't he ever chose to talk about them, and if he has personally raised millions let's see the numbers in writing!!! I'm sure there are plenty of people unemployed and almost homeless here in America that would be really impressed to see how much money he raised for some orphans in Timbuktu (Too big of a word for you right???).
