There has been a lot of anticipation and excitement surrounding the movie Elysium and now the movie has being proving itself at the box office. Matt Damon stars in Elysium and he has spoken about the movie, admitting that he had to go on a diet for the role, which left him being a bit of a grump.
Damon was chatting to the guys over at Us Weekly, when he told them, "I was grumpy on this set, because I was on a diet for the whole movie. I think I shut up a little bit and keep to myself [when I diet]."
He then went on to say, "It's not even that it was as extreme as diets I've done before, but it's like, at my age, I want to eat everything in my path, you know what I mean? I think I've become more of a glutton."
As well as starring Matt Damon, the Elysium cast also includes Jodie Foster, Alice Braga, Sharlto Copley and William Fichtner. Elysium is written and directed by Neil Blomkamp and is out now in the US, while the movie will open in the UK on August 21.
