Matt Damon who is back as American spy Jason Bourne in the upcoming 2016 sequel, shares his thoughts on the 'misogynist' James Bond, and 'monogamist' Bourne.
In a recent interview for GQ Australia, Matt Damon who is back as Jason Bourne, shared his thoughts on the popular TV characters, Bourne and Bond.
"I like Bourne better than Bond," he said. "Bourne has today's values, Bond has the values of the 1960s." He went further to describe Bond as a "misogynist who likes swilling martinis and killing people and not giving a s--t.
Describing his character, Damon said "Jason Bourne is a serial monogamist, and he's tortured by the things he's done and feels empathy and compassion for other people. And Bourne would obviously win in a fight."
