Matt Damon is nice

Matt Damon is in Australia and every time I turn on the TV he's being interviewed. I know it's stupid to be pleasantly surprised when a celebrity happens not to be an arsehole. It's like someone being impressed with me if I happen to do the dishes just because I never do them. But he is nice. And Andrew Denton interviewed him well here. I love the bit about his mother's response to the media -
"Proud of my son? What, to be on the cover of this rag, this thing? This is the exploitation of my son in order to sell people things they don't need!" ... She's very proud of both of her sons, but probably for different reasons than most people would think.
