Good Will (Gay) Hunting

7/20/2007 12:35 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Matt DamonIn the latest issue of GQ, Matt Damon talks about how, when they were younger, he and Ben Affleck wanted to buy the exact same car. But each tried to talk the other out of it, "Because we knew it would just be so gay to get the same car." Maybe not the best choice of words, either.

TMZ had qualms with the usage of "gay" -- since it's not exactly politically correct to use the word "gay" to mean "bad" or "negative." But then, after thinking about it -- for two best friends who wrote and starred in the same movie, won an Oscar together and have generally been linked together for their entire careers -- buying the exact same car really is sooooo gay!

What do you think?

Biggot... I just lost all respect for this moron. People in the public eye should learn to choose their words more carefully, regardless of intent.

SO RIGHT    

PLEASE PEOPLE — go this website and sign the petition for Michael Vick’s suspension (not a release until he has had his day in court, but a suspension for sure!) The indictment states that he abused and slaughtered dogs and if we don’t stop him he’s going to get away with it! Let the NFL and other sport’s organizations know that this abuse will not be tolerated! Stop these million $ professional THUGS! Go here to sign with The Animal Humane Society https://community.hsus.org/campaign/US_2007_dogfighting_nfl2?qp_source=gaba6w

Ohhh you are SOOO GAAAAY for getting offended that somebody used "gay" as a negative. Or are you soooo gay because you let other men violate you in funny places...? Hmmm...which kind of gay are you most...?

If two straight guys say it would be "so gay" to have gotten the same car...why is that so very bad exactly? They are straight and don't want to confuse people. It does not mean that gay is bad per se. It's that they are not gay and it should be okay to be that way too.

Things are way to PC these days.

If someone doesn't want to be portrayed as gay, that's his preogative. Gay isn't wonderful to everyone. To me it's disgusting.

Didn't a gay guy supposedly doctor "Good Will Hunting" so much to take it from being a mediocre to oscar winning screenplay? Gee wonder what the writer got in return?
Matt should probably be more careful choosing his words, but really, who cares?
