Matt Damon Praises Eastwood’s Invictus
In Eastwood’s forthcoming film, Damon plays a South African rugby player who helps Nelson Mandela (Morgan Freeman) bring African citizens together through the 1995 Rugby World Cup, after the fall of Apartheid.
“I felt completely fulfilled creatively,” said Damon at Tuesday’s Museum of the Moving Image gala in New York City honouring Eastwood.
Damon revealed that the helmer’s work style also kept his wife happy.
“I have come to judge good jobs and good directors by how my wife feels about them. And my wife loves Clint Eastwood.”
The actor’s wife’s crumpet? Eastwood’s awards cabinet is officially filled.
