Matt Damon is such a class act.  For being as big of a star as he is, he really treats his fans right.  He’s a very cool guy and if the situation presents itself, he’ll definitely pose for a photo with you.  I’ve always respected that about him.  I just wish many of the C-list celebs who think they are more special than others would take a lesson from someone on the A-list.  Happy birthday Matt!

Also born today: actress Sigourney Weaver, comedian Chevy Chase, writer R.L. Stine, actor Paul Hogan and entertainment reporter Rona Barrett

Go ahead, make my day!  Clint Eastwood has made mine before on several occasions.  The actor/director/politician was born today!  I’ll share one of my amazing encounters with him:  Some time in the early 1990s, another amazing director – Federico Fellini was being honored in Hollywood. Clint Eastwood had arrived to the event and was pressed for time.  He advised that he would take care of all of us afterwards.  We waited around and the next thing you know, he’s driving off in his car!  One of the autograph collectors I was with spotted Eastwood’s car and luckily for us, before zooming off into the night, the traffic light had changed to red.  The collector tapped on Clint Eastwood’s window and Clint rolled down the window and signed autographs for all of us that had been waiting.  Good times!  Happy birthday Clint!

Happy 30th birthday to actress Bryce Dallas Howard.  Her dad, Ron Howard, celebrated his birthday yesterday so I am sure a big fiesta is in the works at the Howard residence.  Also celebrating birthdays today are Coldplay’s Chris Martin, actor Daniel Craig, former Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev, Desi Arnaz, Dr. Seuss, and Karen Carpenter.

An Encounter with Matt Damon

Listen up C list actors and actresses that think your sh-t doesn’t stink.  Please take a lesson from A-lister Matt Damon who is extremely nice to fans!  Considering how famous the man is and thinking about how often people must bombard him for autographs and pictures, I cannot get over how cool Matt Damon was when I met him.  I was at a press conference for his latest film “Hereafter,” and moments before being drilled by the press, I met the actor.  Not only was he extremely nice, when I thanked him for the photo op, he thanked me in return!  What a class act!  Thanks again Matt!!

Matt Damon and Clint Eastwood

10/10/10 is another day for the books.  It began with me and Aphrodite in NYC attending a press conference for Clint Eastwood’s latest film “Hereafter.”  Stars Matt Damon, Cecile DeFrance, Bryce Dallas Howard, writer Peter Morgan and the director, Clint Eastwood, were all in attendance to talk about the film.  Eastwood said it was the easiest film he’s ever made due to the wonderful cast and crew, but it was also one of the most ambitious projects he’s undertaken due to the extensive usage of CGI in the film.  Eastwood also talked about the joys of working with child actors as they are not yet “tainted” by the beast that is the acting business. The film looks to be pretty epic and I am looking forward to seeing it later tonight.  We were not allowed to take any video, but I was able to get a few good shots.  I met Matt Damon and Bryce Dallas Howard at the conference and pictures of my encounters with these two wonderful actors are coming soon. Stay tuned.  “Hereafter” is officially released in theaters on October 22, 2010.

Update:  I saw the film and while it’s very well acted and well made, I didn’t find it to have much of a point or a satisfying ending.  The public will get to decide in a few days….

After the jump, see more pictures!
