Maverick film-maker Terry Gilliam forced Matt Damon to take dancing lessons, because he wanted his leading man to move more gracefully in their upcoming film.

The Monty Python legend required Damon to carry himself with elegance during filming for upcoming movie THE BROTHERS GRIMM - so he sent the Saving Private Ryan hunk to tango lessons.

Damon says, "Terry had me take tango lessons because I move like such a mook. He wanted me to be more of a dandy."
