Damon Risked Wrath Of Eastwood For Invictus Reshoot

MATT DAMON was forced to perfect his scenes for new movie INVICTUS in one take after he was chastised by director CLINT EASTWOOD when he asked for a reshoot.
The Bourne Identity star portrays Francois Pienaar, the captain of South Africa's rugby team, who attempts to lead them to victory during the 1995 Rugby World Cup.
Eastwood is famed for his single take shoots, but Damon decided to pluck up the courage and push for a second try - only to be reprimanded by the legendary actor-turned-filmmaker.
Damon says, "The first scene I did with him I asked if I could do a second take, so I could try it a different way. So I asked him and he said, 'Why, so you can waste everybody's time?' (I was like,) 'OK, moving on then!'"
The movie, based on author John Carlin's book, Playing the Enemy: Nelson Mandela and the Game That Changed a Nation, features Morgan Freeman as the former South African president.
