Matt Damon: I will not go to the bathroom in an effort to draw attention to worldwide water crisis
The Rainmaker actor gets down and dirty by pledging to hold off from using the bathroom until the problem is resolved.

Matt Damon is on an extended bathroom break.
"The Rainmaker" star declares he will not go No. 1 or 2 until everyone in this world has access to clean water and sanitation.
"In protest of this global tragedy, until this issue is resolved, until everybody has access to clean water and sanitation, I will not go to the bathroom," the actor professed in a comedic video intended to shed light on the 2.5 billion people around the world who lack access to these essential elements.
In an effort to draw attention to this serious issue, Damon approached it in a funny way, hoping the video will go viral and get a conversation started.

Doubtless a reaction to Rubio’s wasteful, untimely, atrocious sip.
Rubio did just fine.
I can’t help but think of the scene from Me Myself and Irene where Charlie goes in the neighbor’s house to get the newspaper then walks back out and squats to take a dump on the lawn.
Celebrities don’t need to relieve themselves in the standard fashion, as they spew it out of their mouths via the airwaves.
He’ll get uromicitisis!
Just when you thought the Hollywood elite couldn’t look any more stupid or ridiculous, enter stage left, Matt Damon.
He’s so full of s**t.
Well, we always knew he was full of it........
Somebody get that man a cork and a clothes pin.
Having just watched a relative waste away without being able to drink water or eat, I suggest he has about six days. My aunt lasted ten. She was a strong, hard working woman in her 90’s. so I figure he is about half as good as her.
But we ARE talking about a member of the Film Actor's Guild so-o-o-o-o....
I'll reserve judgement.
He’s afraid he’d find Sheryl Crowe in there.
I’ve always thought of him as full of s__t. Little did I know that I was speaking literally.
I will believe it when he is fined for defecating in his backyard
does Matt Moron **** in the woods?
is the Pope resigning?
I’ve got a challenge for him.
If he truly wants to help, I challenge him to pledge every dime he makes to improving conditions around the world. I’ll allow him say $35,000 for his own personal living expenses and I’ll allow him his travel expenses. Aside from that, no multi million dollar mansions, no expensive cars, or staff.
So he’ll pee on the sidewalk instead of the bathroom. In less than a minute I will forget who he is.
I thought he did this already.
He seems to have been full of sh!t for a long time already.
1. Totally coincidental that he has a new film coming out, that just happens to be mentioned in passing in the press release for thins bonehead publicity stunt.
But it’s a perfect epitome of everything libs do:
2. If he were serious, then it is *stupid* to attempt, *dangerous* to try, and *impossible* to achieve.
3. And if it is just a “comedic” statement, as they claim, then it is incredibly *insensitive and insulting* to the very people he claims to care about.
It’s like a Hollywood star saying “I won’t drink any more champagne until all the poor people in Africa have clean drinking water. Ha-ha! Gotcha! Of course I’m going to continue to drink champagne! Lots of it — the good stuff, too! Got your attention, huh? Look at me!”
Reaction of the poor people in Africa: “WTF?”
Warning—some vulgar language
The Film Actor Guild was the first thing I thought of when reading the headline.
There are those who do and those who talk about doing.
Damon is a talker.
Evil conservative rock star Dave Mustaine actually pays for crews to go to remote parts of Africa and drill wells for remote villages. He asks for donations from fans but doesn’t get publicists to issue press releases about it. Instead he just does it and moves on with his own life.
” ... until everybody has access to clean water and sanitation, I will not go to the bathroom,” the actor professed in a comedic video ... “
Silly, silly boy—this may be the global warming tipping point causing asterrhoids around Uranus ...
I will recommend to him a Victorian book authored by an Englishman (and China specialist):
“Yellow River” by I.P. Freely, Earl of Essex, Phd, FOB, PDQ, FUBAR?
It’s a shame we can’t award titles for our entertainers. Matt is frivolous enough to be dubbed a knight, or at least awarded a garter.
Matt Damon is behaving as a little boy holding his breath in a fit of rage to force Mommie to give in and give the widdow-bwitty boy what he wee-wee, weewe wants.
Grow up Matt, sh_t happens!
Good luck ....
Sounds like Oscar Wilde’s definition of a horse: “Dangerous on both ends and uncomfortable in the middle.”
And I thought he couldn’t be any more full of sh@t than he already was...
” hoping the video will go viral “
Yeah, unlike Promised Land...
Well that does it!!! There is NO WAY I will ever allow Matt Damon in my house. What if he has an “accident”?
Who knew that his highest goal in life was to become a colostomy bag.
He and Lady Ca-Ca would make a nice couple. Together, they could be “Pee-pee Ca-ca”.
...or “Ca-ca Pee-pee”. If they had a bably together, they could call it “Baby Ca-ca Pee-pee Boom-boom”.
"Promised Land" had a limited release on December 28, 2012, making it eligible for the 85th Academy Awards. The film was released in 25 theaters and grossed an estimated $53,000 on its first day, a "sobering" average of $2,120. For the opening weekend, Promised Land grossed an estimated $190,000. Box Office Mojo reported before the film's wide release the following week, "It's unlikely that it will be able to pull many people away from the various other appealing options in theaters right now." Promised Land expanded to 1,676 theaters on January 4, 2013. It grossed $4.3 million over the weekend, which the Los Angeles Times judged as "a bad start" even with its $15 million budget. According to CinemaScore, audiences gave the film a "B" grade. The Times said the grade and "middling reviews" indicated the film was unlikely to be a success. As of January 24, the film has grossed $7.597 million.
The film is scheduled to have its international premiere at the 63rd Berlin International Film Festival in February 2013.
Reviews of the film have been mixed. The Los Angeles Times reported that most critics felt that Promised Land did not reach its full potential. Rotten Tomatoes reported an average rating of 5.8 out of 10 among 105 reviews. Based on the reviews, it gave the film a score of 50%. Metacritic gave the film a score of 54 out of 100 based on 32 reviews. New York Times film critic A.O. Scott praised Promised Land as a film that "works" mainly "by putting character ahead of story" and by "inviting the actors to be warm, funny and prickly". Liam Lacey of the Toronto Globe and Mail is critical of the film: "Apart from its warm, gentle tone, much about Promised Land simply isnt good, especially the inconsistencies in the screenplay. After the mood-setting first half, things start to unravel."
In the classic struggle between the brain and heart versus the asshole, the asshole always wins; or didn’t you know that already Damon?
Prayers and comfort to you.
Saffie: Get through? Mum, you've absolved yourself of responsibility. You live from self-induced crisis to self-induced crisis. Someone does your hair, someone chooses what you wear, someone does your brain, someone tells you what to eat and three times a week someone sticks a hose up your bum and flushes it all out of you.
Eddie: Oh. OH... It's called colonic irrigation, darling. It's not to be sniffed at.
Saffie: Why can't you just go to the toilet like normal people?
Eddie: Is that what you really want me to be, darling? NORMAL? Some boring, old, normal, old, toilet goer, huh? HMM? "Where is mommy?" "She's on the TOILET." "But I want to go somewhere interesting and meet exciting people". "Well, she can't take you while she's on the bloody TOILET". Why, anybody can go to the toilet, darling, these days.
This idea has great potential! Maybe the politicians woulkd care to adopt this strategy too? Just think of the (explosive) possibilities!?
Any one taking bets on how long before he explodes LOL
This idea has great potential! Maybe the politicians woulkd care to adopt this strategy too? Just think of the (explosive) possibilities!? And it wouldn’t take long, either, considering how full of it some of the politicos already are...
ABFAB eh? colonic irrigation, eh?
my wife likes that show...
on a related note...QE 2 has been on the throne over 60 years and when asked, responded “ ...we are not amused”
