Matt Damon shuns fame

Matt Damon says his marriage to non-celebrity Luciana Barroso is the key to his ‘quiet life’

Matt Damon considers himself a “lucky devil” compared to Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.

Matt is happily married to Luciana Bozán Barroso, and the couple raise four kids together; Isabella, five, two-year-old Gia, Stella, nine months, and Alexia, Luciana’s daughter from a previous relationship.

The Hollywood hunk is happy with his work/private life balance, and argues power couples such as Brad and Angelina face a much tougher ride. Matt met Argentine-born Luciana when she was working as a bartender, and cites her non-showbiz status as the reason they have more privacy. He also thinks his decision to shun living in Hollywood lends him greater space.

“Brad and Angie are like prisoners. When they go for a walk it is always a huge international sensation. I am lucky devil. I am doing work I love but I don’t need paramilitary troops who care for me the minute I’m leaving home,” he laughed to German TV station Tele 5.

“I am not as crazy as most of the other celebs. Probably because I married a woman who isn’t an actress. And New Yorkers are really cool they don’t go nuts when they see me. My kids don’t latch on to the whole celeb hustle and bustle.”

As a great advocate of privacy, Matt isn’t keen on social-networking sites where members give out details of their day-to-day life either. The heartthrob is bemused by the way youngsters post such risqué videos on sites such as Facebook, and thinks in the future people will become less inclined to do so.

“We haven’t quite realised what that media could do to us. And that’s why we make mistakes like sending naked pictures of ourselves. The next generation will be more careful and say, ‘Maybe we shouldn’t tape ourselves having sex. That could look strange,’” mused Matt.
