Matt Damon reacts to false rumors of his death
From The Globe and Mail:

"All my wife said was, well, that's weird," recounts Damon, shaking his head. "Then she reminded me that the same thing had happened to George [Clooney] a few years ago. What amazed me even more was that the calls we were getting were from [news groups] that were very reputable. I asked them did you even read the story on the Internet? It read like the lyrics to The Fresh Prince of Bel Air. The truth of the matter is all these mother [expletive] are lazy [and didn't do their homework to verify if the story was real]. There I said it."

Did we fall into some time-warp and backtrack to April?

I see no hope for homo sap if stories like this continue to be believed.

It's just wishful thinking

MD is that freak with the "where's wally" dance right?

How do we know Matt Damon isn't really dead, but just lying when he says he's still alive?

Matt Damon is dead on (pardon the pun): "The truth of the matter is all these mother [expletive] are lazy [and didn't do their homework to verify if the story was real]."

This just in: Harry S Truman is alive, he is in intensive care in Walter Reed Army Hospital. He is sharing a room with another WW I veteran, from Germany, named Adolf Hitler.

I tried to read it to the tune of Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, but it didn't work too well.

I've given myself a week to calm down about this...

It hasn't worked. Damon is complaining that people noticed a report about him and bothered to ring him up to check on it?


In all honesty I look forward to the reports saying "Damon dead for a year, no-one noticed"

Like Skullduggery, I think people who put these rumours up do so to attract attention away form other events to focus on their issues or favourite celebs, like the Farrah Fawcett and Patrick Swayze fans tried to do recently.
