MATT DAMON

SHOE SALESMAN

Empire (UK) - - ON.SCREEN -

“Oh boy, I had a sum­mer job where I had to sell women’s dance shoes in Har­vard Square [in Cam­bridge, Mas­sachusetts]. And that was a lot of fun. It was one of those stores where they marked ev­ery­thing up 200 per cent and then had a sign in the win­dow that said ‘50 per cent off’. So I would have to hand out these ‘50 per cent off’ fly­ers in front of the store. You know, I was 17 years old and sell­ing women’s dance shoes on the cor­ner — it’s not that cool. I got laughed at a lot by peo­ple walk­ing by, like, ‘Why are you sell­ing capezios?’ It was em­bar­rass­ing.”
