Father-of-four Matt reveals why family is so important to him


Matt Damon recently turned 40, is planning to try his hand at directing and more writing, and still found time to squeeze in two movies on current release – the Oscar-nominated True Grit and Hereafter, directed by Clint Eastwood.

But Matts first priority is his daughters. He loves fatherhood.

‘The whole
thing, it’s kind of indescribable,’ he tells Now.

‘I always say it’s like describing a
guitar chord – you can’t really do it justice. Life just changed in a
really miraculous way.’

The star welcomed baby Stella last October with his wife of six years, Luciana Barroso, 35, and is already dad to Isabella, 4, and Gia, 2, plus stepdaughter Alexia, 12.

So is he ready to tell us three things that are on his bucket list?

‘Oh Jesus, do I have to start making a bucket list here? I’m only 40, you know!’ says Matt.

‘OK, I’d say raising my girls to be strong, good women, and there are four of them, so that’s four things.’
