Matt Damon for GQ January 2012

On working with George Clooney and Brad Pitt in the Ocean’s movies: “Look, if you want to try and GQ it up with George and Brad, good luck! That’s pretty rarefied air, and you’re not going to bring more charm than those two, so you’ve got to find something else.”

On President Obama’s joke about him and his film The Adjustment Bureau at the White House Correspondents’ dinner: “I have to say, it was pretty funny. Whoever came up with it, it was a terrific joke.”

On the Bourne trilogy and choosing not to continue with the franchise: “If you look at the first three movies, we kind of pounded that idea of identity and amnesia into the ground. We really got everything out of it that we could. So to reboot it, we need to come up with something completely new.”

On the new Bourne writer Tony Gilroy: “I don’t blame Tony for taking a boatload of money and handing in what he handed in. It’s just that it was unreadable. This is a career-ender. I mean, I could put this thing up on eBay and it would be game over for that dude. It’s terrible. It’s really embarrassing. He was having a go, basically, and he took his money and left.”
