Matt Damon - Matt Damon's Soderbergh Target
Matt Damon is determined to appear in more of director Steven Soberbergh's movies than his friend George Clooney.
The Hollywood star has appeared in as many of the filmmaker's movies as his pal George Clooney, and with them each having a project with the director in the pipeline, Matt is determined to outdo his friend in the collaboration stakes.
He said: "We're tied at six. But I'm going to win - that's all I'm saying.
"We each have another one lined up with Steve and then I'm hoping that I can sneak in as an extra in the one he directs after that. I told Steven that it really matters to me. I want the title. I really want it."
Matt can next be seen in Steven's 'Contagion', a thriller about a lethal pandemic that sweeps the world and the actor admits the subject matter made everyone involved in the movie more hygiene-conscious.
He said: "Steve actually sent The Script over with a note that read, 'Read this and then wash your hands.'
"We were saying when we were making the movie, 'We should get some stocks in Purell [a hand sanitiser]'. We did have that conversation."
