Well thousands of women were left disappointed yesterday after they missed out on a date with George Clooney, a few dozen others were still lucky enough to get a glimpse of him at the premiere of The Monuments Men in New York City.
Clooney, along with his co-stars Matt Damon, Bill Murray, and John Goodman, greeted waiting fans outside the Ziegfeld Theatre despite the cold temperatures.
George was the first to arrive and after going inside for a few minutes he re-emerged to sign autographs and pose for pictures with the crowd. Next John Goodman signed autographs for a little while, followed by Matt Damon who took time to go down the entire line of fans, chatting with everyone along the way. Even Bill Murray took the time to meet fans before attending the special screening!
Yesterday, Katy Perry, Matt Damon, Andy Samberg and Val Kilmer were spotted filming a digital short for SNL in the West Village.
Perry is hosting tonight’s episode of Saturday Night Live with musical guest Robyn. She recently said she’s getting a lot of help from her husband, Russell Brand, while prepping for her first time hosting the show.

This year, the late director Sidney Lumet was presented with the first-ever Made in NY Mayor’s Award for Lifetime Achievement. Other 2011 Made in NY honorees included Matt Damon, Foursquare, John Leguizamo, founder of the Urbanworld Film Festival & CEO of MoviePass Stacy Spikes, commercial production company Smuggler, and NBC chairman Lauren Zalaznick.
On of our readers, Dave, sent us a couple of videos he took of Matt Damon in Los Angeles, where he is currently filming We Bought A Zoo.
In the first video, a fan asks Matt if he plans to work with [Ben Affleck] again and he replies, “we’re always looking for stuff to do together.” When asked if he was going to direct (a project with Ben), Matt replies, “Well [Ben] said that in an interview and its been…no, there’s no script for that one yet.”
One of our readers, JC, was at the Ziegfeld Theatre in New York City tonight for the The Adjustment BureauPremiere’s Red Carpet Arrivals where waiting fans were lucky enough to meet Matt Damon!
Here’s JC’s full report:
I went and waited for the stars of the movie to arrive at the premiere tonight. They had it set up where the SUV/cars are pulling up very close to the tent. I thought the wait would not be successful in getting any stars to come by across the street where fans were waiting. I got there about 6:30 p.m. and was surprised there weren’t that many people waiting at all. My first premiere was for The Tourist and boy, that was a mad crowd and tons of paparazzi. This one, no paps and only a handful of professional autograph hounds.
