Matt Damon talks about Sean Penn after Golden Globes

<?EM-dummyText [Drophead goes here] ?>

Matt Damon attended Fox And FX’s 2016 Golden Globe Awards Party after Sunday’s awards show.

After winning the Golden Globe for his performance in "The Martian," Matt Damon fielded questions from reporters backstage. Some were run-of-the-mill inquires about his so-called comedy performance, but one was about Sean Penn's controversial interview with Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman in Rolling Stone. Damon told the group that he hasn't read the story yet, but that he plans to. "I subscribe to Rolling Stone so it's already been sent to me. But look, it's nothing new, actors going and seeking out meetings like this," he said. "It's part of what we do in our job really well and Sean somehow figured out that he had an audience with this person and I'm sure was pursuing something creatively and thought a meeting with him would be valuable, so he did it."

Other local stars hit the Golden Globes party circuit late into the night. Cohasset's Kate Bosworth, who was a presenter during the ceremony, was at the Weinstein Company and Netflix's Golden Globe Party, where she mingled with Nina Garcia of "Project Runway." Also at that party was Boston Latin grad Julia Jones, who's in Netflix's "The Ridiculous 6," and Mark Ruffalo, who represented two New England films at the awards show — "Spotlight" and the Rhode Island film "Infinitely Polar Bear."
