Matt Damon: Teased by pals for hair plugs, bad breath
On Saturday actor Matt Damon took some serious ribbing when he was honored in Beverly Hills with the 24th American Cinematheque Award.
Damon's pal Jimmy Kimmel teasingly told a famous news magazine, "He doesn't deserve this award"I don't know who they weren't able to get, but I'd go with Tom Selleck before I'd go with Matt Damon."
Sarah Silverman, who joked that she gave Damon, "his first really big break" with their crudely funny 2008 viral video hit. Sarah also said that she was going to have a hard time roasting him.
"The worst thing I could say is, you know, Matt Damon is like, maybe he's a perfectionist," "And his breath is like, Jesus! And his hair plugs are really obvious. Besides that, there's like nothing. So sorry, roast not possible!". She told this to the audience, which included former President Bill Clinton, Don Cheadle, and Damon's Invictus director Clint Eastwood.
Matt Damon also took some barbs from his best friend Ben Affleck and Affleck's wife, Jennifer Garner . Matt said, "Ben is half of one of the greatest love stories ever told. Not with me," Garner said. "The actual prototype for the great Hollywood Bromance . . . Here's proof that love is alive and well in Hollywood. At least for my darling husband and my husband's darling husband."
Affleck jokingly said, "Matt always said to me, 'Ben, there are two things that are more important to me than anything else in this world.' Folks: fame, money. You did it, Matty! You got there!"
A good-natured Damon took it all in stride. While accepting the award Matt said, "I can honestly say that there's a good chance that next year Ben will be here, presenting this award to someone else." "There's a lot of buzz about Vanessa Hudgens."
