Matt Damon Busts Up Toys For Darfur

April 14th, 2008 // 3 Comments

Matt Damon is one of the stars taking part in a photoshoot to bring attention to the conflict in Darfur. Celebrities including Damon, Nip/Tuck‘s Joely Richardson, and Jemima Khan (Wrath of?) were photographed hacking up toys and children’s drawings to represent how children’s lives in the Sudanese region have been “shattered.”

“After the genocide in Rwanda we all said never again,” Damon said.

I know his heart’s in the right place, but Matty looks like he’s having a lot of fun smashing up that dollhouse. It’s supposed to be a somber moment, right? He looks like he should have a bucket of popcorn and a big soda. He’s having his own personal demolition derby for Darfur.

    I really don’t get this celebrity promotion. It’s just stupid. I don’t think it is accomplishing anything.
