Matt explains, "I think he was even reluctant to meet me. He kept saying, ‘I’m not doing anything Hollywood,’ and I was like, ‘Dude, I live in New York.’ We ended up meeting in a diner and he was kind of giving me the one-eye for the first 10 minutes or so.”
 
Blomkamp adds that he was giving Matt the 'one-eye', explaining, "High-level actors can be these razor-sharp tools that help you tell the story. But they can also be all about their close-ups and the size of their trailers. I was very apprehensive. You just hear all these horror stories.”

Everything seemed to have worked out fine, largely because we know Matt Damon is one of the best actors in Hollywood with the least amount of ego. 'Elysium' comes out August 9th and in addition to starring Matt Damon, also stars Alice Braga, Jodie Foster, Sharlto Copley, and William Fichtner.
