Matt Damon Impresses His Dad

1 November 2000 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Oscar-winner Matt Damon has finally found a way to impress his dad - introduce him to Robert Redford. Matt, who stars in Redford's latest movie Legend of Bagger Vance, The (2000), says his normally hard-to-impress dad was bowled over by meeting Redford - especially as Damon Jr. and Sr., both avid baseball fans, got to practice their catching with the star of Natural, The (1984). Damon says, "My dad came to visit me while making Bagger Vance. "On a break, we grabbed a couple gloves from the prop truck and started having a catch. Redford came over, picked up a glove and we're just having a catch, not saying much. Five minutes go by, and my father yells, 'I'm having a catch with f***ing Roy Hobbs' It was hysterical. I've never seen my dad get starstruck." »

Brad Pitt And Robert Redford Seek British Shelter

18 October 2000 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Brad Pitt and Robert Redford have been forced to relocate to Britain - after a real war threatened their war film. The Hollywood pair were shooting director Tony Scott's espionage thriller The Spy Game in Israel - but the mounting Israeli-Palestinian conflict led to fears for the stars' safety. A spokesman for the production says, "You have to think of not just the safety of the stars, but the entire crew. In any case, I think the money and the insurance have been jumping up and down, going nuts at the prospect of filming in a war zone." The CIA thriller has reportedly been relocated to the much calmer Shepperton Studios, outside London. »

Matt Damon Swings Out Of Control

22 September 2000 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Actor Matt Damon has a painful new passion - golf. Matt, who has been taking five-hour golf lessons every day for six weeks to train for his golfing role in Legend of Bagger Vance, The (2000), admits he's hooked - even though it did land him in the hospital. Damon says, "I play baseball. I couldn't understand golf because the ball doesn't really move. Which is why I swung really hard one day. I swung myself right into the doctor's office." But Damon, who sustained a separated rib, wasn't deterred by the injury and has since become a regular fixture on the golf course. The only person not so happy on the set of the movie, based on Steven Pressfield's 1955 novel, was Robert Redford who, as director, didn't get to swing a club. He joked, "No wonder I'm in such a bad mood. Everyone gets to play golf but me!" »
