What's Up With That? #25: Matt 'n' Heath, sittin' in a tree...

Here's a screen shot from the San Francisco Chronicle's excellent Web site, SFGate.com, and its celebrity gossip blog, The Daily Dish.

Note the headline: "Damon Asks Barroso to Marry Him."

Now note the accompanying photograph: That's Heath Ledger, Matt Damon's costar in Terry Gilliam's The Brothers Grimm, at the actor's side, not Damon's fiancée Luciana Barroso.

Was the online copy editor at the Chron asleep at the switch today? This was the only picture of Matt Damon the newspaper had on file? Yes, they added a caption to correct the obvious misperception, but why create the misperception in the first place?

This, people, is how rumors get started.


We all know Matt prefers brunets.
