Matt Damon Wants Gay Actors To Stay In The Closet

Earlier this month, Matt Damon talked over a black woman director to explain diversity in Hollywood to her. Always a good idea. He followed that up with an interview in The Guardian. Another great idea.

“I think you’re a better actor the less people know about you, period. And sexuality is a huge part of that. Whether you’re straight or gay, people shouldn’t know anything about your sexuality because that’s one of the mysteries that you should be able to play.”
Cool. Being a mystery and whatnot. We should tell Wikipedia, because I went over there and it tells me that Matt Damon has dated Minnie Driver, Winona Ryder for two years (dem titties), and Billy Bob Thorton’s personal assistant, Odessa Whitmire. Oh, and he married Luciana Bozán Barroso in 2003 and they have three kids. Christ, stop flaunting your sexuality, Matt. I won’t be able to believe that you’re a Texas Ranger in True Grit if you’re married to a chick from Argentina.  Luckily, everyone’s safe gay, Ellen DeGeneres, invited him on to keep digging his totally not gay hole.
“I was just trying to say actors are more effective when they’re a mystery, right?” “The Martian” star told Ellen. “And somebody picked it up and said I said gay actors should get back in the closet. Which is like, I mean it’s stupid, but it is painful when things get said that you don’t believe. You know what I mean? And then it gets represented that that’s what you believe.”

I understand people want to get upset over this, but please understand that Matt Damon is from Boston. That should put this in enough perspective for you.
