Rumors have been circulating that film director Steven Soderbergh is retiring and Steven says that Matt Damon is completely to blame for the rumor being spread.

Soderbergh recently addressed the rumors about his retirement and this is what he has to say;

“Matt Damon is about as discrete as a fourteen-year-old girl. I had this drunken conversation with him in Chicago shooting ‘Contagion’.”

Steven went on to say that after they had spoke, he then read reports in the papers a few days later that he was retiring.

He praised Damon for having a fantastic memory saying “he remembered it almost verbatim,” but added that he was not as serious as he sounded.  Steven said;

“I was just sort of going off. No one wants to hear about someone quitting a good job. It got blown out of proportion. That’s Matt’s fault!”

Matt Damon needs to learn the words “no comment” if he can’t learn to keep quiet when it comes to private conversations.
