Matt Damon Reveals Why He Skipped the Inauguration

Actor Matt Damon reveals why he chose to not to attend the inauguration of President Barack Obama, even after he campaigned to put him in office.

”[My wife] Luciana [Barroso] and I decided we wanted to go,” Damon tells the Miami Herald. “But when I called my contacts from the campaign, they just started laughing: ‘We worked on the campaign for two and a half years, and we’re not going. Forget it.'”

“But then they called me back the next day and said, ‘Hey, we’ve got two tickets for you, in the bleachers, and you’ll actually be able to see Obama take the oath. Just $25,000 apiece.'”

It was then that Damon, husband and father of three daughters, said he decided to watch the inauguration from his couch in Miami Beach.

Damon currently has an ‘Untitled Jason Bourne Project’ in the works for a 2010 release.

    I am anxiously awaiting the next Bourne Movie. I find them to be very exciting and a blast to watch. I think Matt and Franke are very hot together!
