"I had [the script] at home," said Smith (in a video interview HERE). "I was living at this condo in Red Bank, and I took it into the bathroom to read the script. So I sat down, I'm a big bathroom reader, both in stature and in spirit. So I sit down and I read, and I'm a few pages in, and you're -- it's a page turner. Just gripped. Whole script without getting up. Pants down, read it from cover to cover, just never got up. Come out of the bathroom weeping, because it's a beautiful ending to that script."

9. Damon appeared in an uncredited cameo in Francis Ford Coppola's "Youth Without Youth" (2007). Damon has worked with directors including Steven Spielberg ("Saving Private Ryan"), Robert DeNiro ("Good Shepherd") and Martin Scorsese ("The Departed").
