Matt Damon is a s–tty storyteller.
On this unique sneak peek of the forty fifth Annual Kennedy Heart Honors—airing Dec. 28 on CBS—Matt pays homage to his good friend and honoree George Clooney in a speech that, a minimum of to start out, appears innocent sufficient.
“It has been mentioned that my good friend George Clooney is the final of the true film stars,” Matt begins, “so I received to eager about precisely what that meant. After all, quite a lot of previous Kennedy Heart honorees have actually been film stars in that traditional sense. Actors with class and class—Cary Grant, Henry Fonda, Paul Newman, Gregory Peck.”
That is when issues take a flip.
“After which I consider George,” Matt says, “a person who defected in Richard Form‘s kitty litter field as a joke.”
Richard, greatest recognized for Mad About You, Spin Metropolis and his voice work in a number of Pixar movies, is seated onstage and acknowledges Matt’s reference with a hearty salute.
