Are we ready to play internet guessing game? Of course we are, that’s half the bandwidth. So: Matt Damon has explained how one of his roles was so awful it gave him depression… but doesn’t say which role.
Speaking to Jake’s Takes, he explained he “fell into a depression”: “Without naming any particular movies…sometimes you find yourself in a movie that you know, perhaps, might not be what you had hoped it would be, and you’re still making it… And I remember halfway through production and you’ve still got months to go and you’ve taken your family somewhere, you know, and you’ve inconvenienced them, and I remember my wife pulling me up because I fell into a depression about like, what have I done?”
His wife saved him. “You know, and it was like… I do pride myself, in a large part because of her, at being a professional actor and what being a professional actor means is you go and you do the 15-hour day and give it absolutely everything, even in what you know is going to be a losing effort… And if you can do that with the best possible attitude, then you’re a pro, and she really helped me with that.”
