Matt Damon SLAMS Bourne Writer Tony Gilroy…But Then Apologizes

matt damon slams tony gilroy

Looking to play a game of burning bridges, are we Matt???

During Matt Damon's recent GQ interview, he opened up about Bourne writer Tony Gilroy, and had less-than-complimentary things to say about the man!

Here's what he had to say about Gilroy's Bourne Ultimatum script:

"It's really the studio’s fault for putting themselves in that position. I don't blame Tony for taking a boatload of money and handing in what he handed in. It’s just that it was unreadable. This is a career-ender. I mean, I could put this thing up on eBay and it would be game over for that dude. It's terrible. It's really embarrassing. He was having a go, basically, and he took his money and left."

And here's Damon's apology about his Gilroy comments:

"If I didn't respect him and appreciate his talent, then I really wouldn't have cared. My feelings were hurt. That's all. And that's exactly why I shouldn’t have said anything. This is between me and him. So saying anything publicly is f****ng stupid and unprofessional and just kind of douchey of me."

We appreciate U taking the time to apologize for the harsh comments, Matt!

We're guess that UR probably right about Gilroy's script…but yes, in the future that should probably be addressed in a significantly less public forum!

What do U think? Did Matt Damon make the right move by apologizing for his words about Gilroy???

    progressive leftist communist douchbags always lead with their emotion. they are not capable of dealing with facts and reality. its about how great they are….

    he should apologize. I read what he said, and he was way wrong. If you go to IMDB and look at the movies Gilroy has done, he's brilliant. He worked with Matt Damon on three Bourne movies. He's both writing and directing the Bourne Legacy, so Matt's just mad because Gilroy went forward, and Matt made such a big deal about the director. I get that Matt wanted to support his director, by why harsh on Gilroy? Jeremy Renner and Gilroy will be just fine. Matt owes Gilroy that apology. Gilroy did well with Matt. Matt should STFU.

    these stars and their big mouths. but at least he's calling himself out on it. Although the damage was done already. He hasnt even taken the words back just sorry he said them publicly!

    What has been said has already done the damage. I think he often speaks before thinking. He needs to grow up.
