Matt Damon Says Gay Actors Should Keep Personal Lives Private


In a recent interview with The Guardian, Matt Damon said that he thinks actors should keep their personal lives quiet – including their sexuality.

“I think it must be really hard for actors to be out publicly,” said Damon. “But in terms of actors, I think you’re a better actor the less people know about you, period. And sexuality is a huge part of that.

On Monday, Sept. 28, Damon clarified his comments while on The Ellen DeGeneres Show: “I was just trying to say actors are more effective when they’re a mystery. Right?”
