"[James Bond is] an imperialist and he's a misogynist. He kills people and laughs and sips martinis and wisecracks about it. ... [Jason Bourne is] the opposite of James Bond."—Matt Damon, star of the Bourne series, the third installment of which, The Bourne Ultimatum, comes out August 3.
I thought the new Bond flick (which I enjoyed) was a huge improvement in the misogyny department, but the Bourne flicks do win that match-up hands down, which is only one of many reasons I adore them.
But forget about the movies for a moment... Can we talk about how much I fucking love Matt Damon for talking about misogyny and male action heroes?
