Matt Damon Thinks Jason Bourne Could Beat Down James Bond
In a new GQ Australia feature, Damon explained, “I like Bourne better than Bond. Bourne has today’s values; Bond has the values of the 1960s. Daniel [Craig]’s Bond has upgraded him and brought him more into the present, but, classically, that character is a misogynist who likes swilling martinis and killing people and not giving a sh—.”
Damon added, “And Bourne would obviously win in a fight.” We agree. Have you seen how kickass Jason Bourne is?!
The actor, however, says training to be such a badass former assassin is hard work. “Oh god, the training was so much, especially at 45 – it’s brutal. Hours and hours every day, a couple of workouts a day, and a very specific, low-carbohydrate, high-protein diet. I love getting into the groove of working out, and I feel better when I’m breaking a sweat every day, but it’s the eating – I wish I could do the training but just eat pizza. That would be perfect.”
