Matt Damon blasts ‘Bourne Ultimatum’ writer Tony Gilroy – CNN.com Blogs.

I’ve appreciated his acting during his career, but his off screen (ie, real-life) persona is revealing its down-right offensive side.  Isn’t it time to show a little wisdom?  Or are we at the point where there is nothing to lose?

    True, he was a little over-the-top, and he later admitted to his douchebaggery. I think for being as smart and talented as he clearly is, he has little filtering. He tries to use his fame to influence, but says stuff in the wrong way.

    Of course, it must be extremely frustrating to make two franchise movies and be obligated to make the third only to have the studio make a boneheaded deal with the screenwriter to produce unreadable rubbish.

    Yup – I “get” where he is coming from but he is not using any discretion or wisdom when speaking. Even going back and calling himself out – hindsight is 20/20. That’s not as admirable as keeping a d-bag comment from going to print in the first place. I find as I get older that I enjoy knowing and seeing people executing wisdom and not being so wreckless with their words, regardless if I agree with their opinion. To be brash, taboo and tactless is not inspiring and lacks sophistication.
