Matt Damon’s Last Role Is Still Weighing on Him

By: / February 17, 2009

In this era of fixation on celebrities’ bodies (Jessica Simpson, we’re looking in your direction), the men rarely undergo the same scrutiny as the women.

So here’s Matt Damon, 38, vacationing in the Caribbean with wife Luciana and their three kids yesterday. Obviously, he’s lost some of the weight he put on for his role in Steven Soderbergh‘s The Informant.

Some of it.

In the movie (based on a true story), Damon plays an overweight corporate whistle-blower with a bipolar disorder. Damon reported packed on 30 pounds for the role.

And yeah, he’s not the fittest he’s ever been. He just needs to avoid mom jeans at this juncture.

But he will have to shed the excess for when he begins shooting the next entry in the Bourne series, which has made him a superstar.

It’s set for a 2010 release. So you’d better hit the gym, Matty. Or at least find another triathlon to participate in.
