Matt Damon is Dead; Died At Hiking Accident?

Matt Damon is Dead Died At Hiking AccidentRumors surfaced online that actor Matt Damon died during a hiking accident. Reports have it that the 38-year-old fell off Palos Verdes Mountain in California.

CNN, The Boston Globe and other news organizations have called Damon's publicist for a comment. Is this true?

This isn't real after all. Matt Damon is alive!

He dismissed the rumors at the Toronto Film Festival press conference for his new film ''The Informant!'' He said, ''My publicist got all of these phone calls from very reputable sources. I got forwarded the story, which, if you read it, it just gets sillier and sillier, and, by the end, the guy who's said to be my agent is quoting the lyrics to the Fresh Prince of Bel Air.

''And yet CNN called and The Boston Globe called, all of these reputable news sources are checking if it's true,'' he continued. ''My publicist's like, 'Did you even read the story?' Misinformation is quicker because you (bleep) are lazy! That's how these things spread like wildfire.''
