I like these kinds of stories because far too often I'm hearing from people I know that waiting on celebrities is a pain in the ass. They have enough money and granted, they have the fame to try and throw around their importance in other people's faces, but for the most part, I'd like to believe that stars are grateful for where they are now and how they got there.
While out dining with his wife Luciana and a group of 7 other friends, Matt Damon ordered a large and lavish dinner for his table, including lobsters for everyone even though they're not a menu staple. (Where do I sign up to be in Matt's entourage??) Normally restaurants add an automatic gratuity to orders where the group is as large as Damon's was, but to top off paying for the meal for everyone, he added an additional $400 as a tip for the people serving them.
I had known that his buddy Ben Affleck was known for tipping well while playing the cards in Vegas, and granted there's been no one so far who has topped the $4,000 tip Johnny Depp left while filming PUBLIC ENEMIES in Chicago (in addition to following through with a request from a kid watching the filming that he thought Johnny's hat was cool - later sending the hat as well as other DVDs and movie related stuff to the kid's family), I still think that we all might need to alter our TEAM AMERICA knee-jerk reaction to Matt's name and start calling him "'Da Man!"G
