Matt Damon Reveals 'Great' Advice George Clooney Gave Him When They Met (VIDEO)

When Matt Damon and George Clooney first met, Damon was just beginning the ascent of his career, so Clooney passed along to the younger actor a piece of advice on dealing with fame that Paul Newman had given him.

Damon spoke about this conversation on 'Piers Morgan Tonight' (weekdays, 9PM ET on CNN.)

"The first thing [Clooney] said to me, the first day I met him was, 'don't let them keep you inside,' and that was great, great advice"

"By that you mean physically in your home," Morgan clarified.

"Physically ... just because the celebrity can feel a little oppressive, don't let it make you not live your life. And that was what Paul Newman had said to him."

Clooney, Damon and the late Newman are all movie stars who've always seemed to have an easy relationship with the public and the press. So maybe there's something to those simple words.
