Matt Damon’s new sci-fi flick Elysium scored the No. 1 spot at the box office last weekend and child star Maxwell Perry Cotton, who plays Matt’s character as a kid, received the good news from a pretty unlikely source.
The 11-year-old tells On Air with Ryan Seacrest: “Well, I didn’t really know it was top of the box office until I went to football practice and my coach walks up to me while we are warming up and he says, ‘Number one at the box office.’ And I said, ‘What? That’s crazy!’ I just got really excited.”
And rightfully so, cause not only was his movie the best at the box office, but his Burbank Vikings team also won their pre-season opener.
How’s that for an 11-year-old?!
Catch Elysium in theaters now.
