Fugger: Matt Damon

Well Played Cover: Matt Damon on GQ


There are a LOT of words on this cover. And with all those distractions, it’s to Matt Damon’s credit that he is the only place I am looking.

Matt Damon GQ Cover

I love this cover. He is… dishy. I have no idea what he’s like in his actual life, but he was exceedingly gracious to me at Fashion Week once when I was interviewing him at a Naeem Khan show, which is a situation in which far smaller-scale celebrities have refused any interviews and yet he happily — or at least COMPLETELY congenially — let me squat down in front of him and call him a Noted Womenswear Enthusiast. And this does a majestic job of celebrating his youthful hotness while also teasing up the hints of Silver Fox poking through in that hair. I do really wish they’d left “The Boy With The Toy Gun” line off and just teased the Tamir Rice story with the part in red, because the words “The Boy With The Toy Gun” next to the winsome, grinning face of a man who plays a rogue spy in the movies leaves a very strange wrong impression. The juxtaposition inadvertently trivializes what’s actually a very important piece.

As for “Classic Matt Damon,” though, if it’s a serious Matt that you covet, GQ has you covered.
