I was enjoying the fact that there's two for one before midnight, and that I wasn't driving. I was loitering at the bar when the actor plopped himself next to me- though not facing me. I was aggressively friendly with Matt's friends in order to try and get myself a picture with him, all of whom tried to keep me away. I explained that I lived in Stoughton, my dad's from Brockton, I'm of Mass stock, too. I deserve a shot. Eventually, I realized that all niceties were useless, and I went in for the camera kill and got nothing but the top of his head. I just walked up and took a picture and they all started yelling at me, "this is not a zoo!" or "does this look like a ZOO???!!"
I stumbled away, and I really wasn't much but disappointed that I didn't get a face picture.
On the other end of the spectrum, Le Tigre's JD Samson was really sweet and easy to talk to. I know she's not high prof like Matty, but my friend said some girl at Smith changed her name to JD when she changed genders. I think that makes her a big deal to at least some people.
I have to say, I don't understand what the hell crawled up Matt's ass, but there was no reason for him to yell at me like that. He makes a shit ton of money, he is FAMOUS, why is he surprised some douche like me wants to take a picture with him for my blog? I am a goddamn nice person. I may be brutally honest, and hostile at times and a big bitch, but I am a kind human. I am nice to old people and animals. I always do people favors. I work to help children and sick people (when I'm employed). I volunteer occasionally. Who the hell is HE to talk to ME like that? Then, adding a cherry on top of this pretty sundae, one of his friend's friends, who his friend pawned me off on, like fell in love with Miami, bro, and trailed me the whole night. He wasn't bad or offensive or anything, but did he get me a picture? No.
The other funny part was that my tab was open at the bar where he was sitting, so even after the yelling incident, I was stuck standing behind Mr. Damon. I don't even think he's a good looking guy. He has chronic keg face. It was just funny that Farrah and I stayed up late last week (with hives) in Emmittsburg to watch Good Will Hunting. I thought it was fated that we should take a picture together.
So, here I am reporting to you that Matt Damon is a crappy "star." I have met many a famous person in my day, and never have a met a ruder dude. And, yes, Matt and co, it did sort of look like a zoo. No offense actors, but you guys kind of are on display.
