Damon Sad About Bagger Vance Flop

Subscribe to Matt Damon alerts

Hollywood heart-throb Matt Damon is still upset his 2000 film THE LEGEND OF BAGGER VANCE was such a box office flop.

Despite an all-star lineup including Charlize Theron and Will Smith, the film failed to capture the same success as the 1995 novel written by STEPHEN PRESSFIELD.

Damon, 33, explains, "I was the lead in a film directed by Robert Redford based on this really popular book that I read and liked, everything was lined up right but ultimately it didn't work.

"I just didn't get it, and it wasn't for lack of trying. I really did try.

"But I think it would have been better if Redford had played that role himself because I think he had the gravitas for that part - it would have been a different movie, of course, but it might have been much better."
