Normally that wouldn’t be a good thing, but when it comes to the paparazzi, it’s better to be boring. That way they won’t follow you around.
In a recent interview he said: “I feel I have an unspoken deal with paparazzi. I won’t do anything interesting if they agree not to follow me. If anyone wanted to photograph my life, they’d be bored in a day. Here’s Matt at home learning his lines; here’s Matt researching in aisle six of his local library.”
“I don’t mind being thought of as boring, if it means that no photographers follow me.”
I bet it’s a lot better for him and his family. They can actually go about their business without fear.
