Matt Damon Hates Snakes, Plus 15 Other Strange Celeb Phobias

Matt Damon and I are pretty much not alike at all, but one thing we could bond over: we both hate snakes. Apparently Damon was so squeamish around the reptiles on the set of his new movie “We Bought a Zoo,” that his co-star Scarlett Johansson made fun of him.  “He was definitely sweating a bit, and maybe the sweat formed in the corner of his eye,” she told People. “I said, ‘Matt, these kids are practically juggling the snakes. Hold it together.’” Johansson recalled watching Damon “cry like a baby and rock back and forth when the snakes were spread all over the set.”

Hey, lay off him Scarlett! I’m right there with you, Matt. Snakes are just not right. Click through to check out some other notable — and notably strange — celeb phobias.

Matt Damon Is The The New Baldy On The Block

In April, Jake Gyllenhaal went bald for his role as an LAPD office in “End of Watch.” Then Joseph Gordon-Levitt shaved his head onscreen in the trailer for “50/50,” while Channing Tatum was spotted sans hair after beginning to film “GI Joe 2: Cobra Strikes.” Now, we have a new member of the Chrome Dome Club.

Tobey Maguire Sued Over Illegal Poker Games

I sort of love the idea of richie rich celebrities gathering in swank hotel rooms for illegal high-stakes poker games with an $100,000 minimum buy-in. Apparently, this is what Tobey Maguire, Leonardo DiCaprio, Ben Affleck, Matt Damon, and other assorted Hollywood high-rollers have been up to. I imagine there were lots of cigars at these games, not to mention tomfoolery that would make a gossip columnist drool all over themselves.

So how did we find out about these underground poker games? Because Maguire, along with Nick Cassavettes (the director of “The Notebook”) and Gabe Kaplan (the star of “Welcome Back Kotter,” who I’m guessing is like the crazy older uncle of the group) just got sued over them. Keep reading »

—Michael Douglas pokes fun at Matt Damon, his co-star in an upcoming biopic about Liberace and his younger lover. For some reason, we thought we’d see Matt make out onscreen with Ben Affleck first, but we will take it. [E! Online]

Ben Affleck And Matt Damon Working On A Wife-Swapping Movie

My, how far Matt Damon and Ben Affleck have come together in the past 13 years. They’ve gone from being 20-something bachelors doodling math equations on mirrors to both being stand-up citizens with wives and multiple children. So I kind of love that their next movie together is about … two friends who swap wives. “The Trade”—which Ben is writing with his younger brother Casey, and in which he will presumably star alongside Matt—tells the real-life story of two Yankees pitchers in the 1970s, Mike Kekich and Fritz Peterson, who decided to trade wives. Mrs. Peterson moved in with Kekich while Mrs. Kekich went to sharing a bed with Peterson. When word got out about the situation, a scandal erupted. Keep reading »
