Matt Damon Is SO Over Jeremy Renner's Drug-Tainted Bourne Franchise!

matt damon finished bourne legacy jeremy renner franchise

The star of We Bought a Zoo isn't buying into the notion of starring in a fourth Bourne film!

Matt Damon finally sat down and watched Jeremy Renner's newish Bourne Legacy, and we were surprised by his reaction!

Did it compel him to enlist in filming another round of international espionage and incomprehensibly-edited fight sequences?!

Not exactly!

The Good Will Hunting star admitted:

ScarJo Admits To Fear Of Birds

scarelet-johannson-afraid-o.jpg

So apparently even though she felt fine making fun of Matt Damon because of his fear of snakes, Scarlett Johansson has a fear of her own…

Birds!!

ScarJo opened up in a recent interview about her new movie, We Bought A Zoo:

Did you have to overcome any irrational animal fears when you were shooting this movie?

I’m only scared of birds. Something about wings and beaks and the flapping. I’m terrified of them. That still hasn’t gone away. If they’d asked me to put a bird on my shoulder I would’ve done it, but it would’ve been hard. Cockroaches. I cannot stand cockroaches. That’s one thing I absolutely couldn’t do. But that’s not really an animal, is it? It’s an insect. … Actually, my uncle is terrified of birds, as well, so it runs in the family.

There were peacocks on the set.

Yeah, I was terrified of them. Like, “Ahh, don’t get too close.” They’re like, mean.

At one point, Elle Fanning asks your character if she prefers animals or humans. What about you? Any preference?

I take humans most of the time, but I have to say that occasionally sitting on the couch with the dog, you’re just like, “Man, you’re the best company. This is bliss.” Just the dog and a nice old movie and you’re good to go. But yeah, people. I take people.

So remember, if you plan on getting Scarlett a gift this holiday season, make sure it's not a parakeet!

Also, pets make lousy gifts… but you already knew that, right?

Scarlett Johansson Makes A Pretty Pin-Up Girl

Scarlett Johansson was looking like a blast from the past at Monday night's premiere of We Bought A Zoo.

Stefano and Domenico's favorite girl showed off an inch of her midriff in a Dolce & Gabbana crop top and matching skirt with black Jimmy Choo ankle strap heels.

We're digging ScarJo's victory rolls. It really completes her retro-inspired look.

Matt Damon Was Afraid Of Snakes

"Was" being the keyword.

In his new movie, We Bought A Zoo, while starring alongside Scarlett Johansson, Matt Damon was in very close contact with all sorts of animals.

Even with all the wild lions and tigers hanging around the set, there was only one thing that truly scared Damon… the snakes!

An ET interviewer said to Damon:

"Scarlett revealed to us that you have kind of a fear of snakes."

And Damon responded:

"I did. I got over it."

He said that it was Scarlett's constant teasing that helped him get over his fear. And the fact that the young child actors were more than willing to be covered in the snakes.

Way to go Matt! There's nothing to fear from silly, slithery snakes!

Matt Damon Attends A Bullfight??

Filed under: Matt DamonPETAAnimal CrueltyCow

While on a break from filming in Mexico, Matt Damon was spotted at a bullfight!

He attended the fight at La Monumental bullring stadium in Mexico City with some friends.

Apparently he wasn't screaming for blood, jumping up and down; he was actually seen yawning and talking with friends, though he did applaud the fight a few times.

PETA said:

"Each year, approximately 250,000 bulls die in bullfights, an inaccurate term for events in which there is very little competition between a nimble, sword-wielding matador (Spanish for ‘killer’) and a confused, maimed, psychologically tormented, and physically debilitated animal."

Even though Damon has his own charity Water.org, that helps provide clean water and sanitation to people who need it, he's come under fire from PETA before.

They argue his most recent movie, We Bought A Zoo, sends the message that anyone can take care of exotic and wild animals.

We're sure he'll be hearing from PETA very soon.

PETA Wants Warning In New Zoo Movie

Filed under: Film FlickersPETAZoo

PETA is urging director Cameron Crowe to include a warning about the dangers of owning wild animals.

His new movie, We Bought A Zoo features a family, with no real training, taking care of wild animals.

PETA fears that people will think that it takes nothing more than a lot of "heart" to take care of exotic animals.

Due to the recent Ohio tragedy, where around 50 exotic animals were shot dead, PETA released a statement:

"We Bought a Zoo conveys the misleading and downright dangerous message that no special knowledge—just a lot of heart—is needed to run a zoo.

As the tragedy in Ohio gruesomely illustrates, wild animals aren't Disney characters. They have very special needs that all too often aren't met by people who buy them on a whim because they think it would be 'cool' to own a tiger."

You hear that people? Just because you want a tiger, doesn't mean you have the time, training or resources to take care of it.

And even if you do you still shouldn't get one. Wild animals belong in the wild.
