Matt Damon Thinks Jason Bourne Could Beat Down James Bond

Matt Damon makes no qualms that he likes his alter ego action hero Jason Bourne more than super spy 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.”
