Matt Damon - Matt Damon's Anthony Weiner Fundraiser Axed

Matt Damon's plans to host a fundraiser for U.S. politician Anthony Weiner have been axed in the aftermath of the congressman's sex scandal.
The married New York representative hit headlines after he admitted lying about sending a saucy picture to a female student via Twitter and confessed to having intimate internet and phone chats with several other women.
The Good Will Hunting star was set to host an event for Weiner at Almond Restaurant in the Big Apple on 20 June (11) with tickets being sold for up to $25,000 (£15,625) each.
However, the fundraiser has now been cancelled in the wake of the scandal engulfing the politician.
Damon tells New York Magazine, "Look, I really support his politics. Anybody who fights for the working class and the middle class, I'll help in any way I can... (But) it's going to be postponed now because of all this."
