    I would be very cautious about accepting Matt Damon's version of this event, which he related over several beers to Esquire journalist Tom Junod. Later in the piece, Damon relates a story about Russell Crowe and George Clooney at the BAFTA awards which was completely made up.

    The pull quote on the page where the chocolate bar story is featured reads, "Turns out that at least some of the stories Matt told about famous people didn't strictly happen. He might have been messing with us. But what does it matter? They're still delicious."

    Lewisohn hasn't heard about the chocolate bar. Until Bono or McCartney confirm this, I'd be suspicious…

    Of course it's nonsense! Bono has been banned from Liverpool for decades for being such a wazzock.

    How come this isn't mentioned on the Anthology then?
    It's a load of bollocks and Damon is full of shizer…
