When it comes to being one of the biggest movie stars on the planet, it is pretty much expected of you that you will do all that you can to help promote the new movie project you are about to star in. However, while some of the top stars in the business have no problem doing the press junkets that are asked of them, there are others who prefer to do as little press as possible.
Matt Damon has been in the acting industry for many years now and has had to do a huge amount of press over the course of his career to date, but he has admitted that he does not have a problem with doing it. Meanwhile though, Matt has admitted that Edward Norton is not of fan of doing press, although it seems that he does have a very valid reason for it.
Damon was chatting to biography.com, when he explained to them, "I don’t know if balancing it all is difficult, exactly. My friend (actor) Edward Norton does very little press. I’ve talked to him a lot about this topic, and he’s got a really good point about being in the spotlight all the time."
He added, "As an actor, he feels he can play a wider range of characters because people don’t have any preconceived notions about him. It's preserving the mystery. It definitely works for him. So I understand his theory, but – for me anyway – there’s also the realistic side of this business, which is: you’ve got to go tell people about your movie."
As far as his acting career is concerned, Matt Damon has been nominated for the Best Actor Oscar at this years Academy Awards, for his performance in the very impressive movie The Martian. While Matt has won an Oscar for his writing work for Good Will Hunting, he has never managed to bag one for his acting, despite being previously nominated on two occasions.
