Matt Damon makes me sad. I used to love him so much that I actually considered him one of my favorite actors. Then he went on and on in some dumb interview about how we should all be giving money to Africa, and how it’s ridiculous when people say that they can’t afford $1 a day. Ever since, I just haven’t been able to look at him the same way. Maybe he’s forgotten his days in the gutter hammering out screenplays with his good friend, Ben Affleck. So it shouldn’t surprise me that when his wife’s, Luciana’s, newest pregnancy was announced, that he took it as a sign that he should once again tell us all how freakin awesome he is. From US,
“Matt Damon and his wife Luciana are expecting another baby, his rep confirms to UsMagazine.com exclusively.
His rep tells Us, “Everyone is excited.”
Damon, 39, and Luciana, 34, are parents to Isabella, 3, and Gia, 21 months. Luciana has a daughter, Alexia, 11, from a previous marriage.
Damon — who quietly wed Luciana at NYC City Hall in December 2005 — has credited his kids with keeping him grounded in Hollywood.
“It’s pretty easy to kind of lose your way… having kids is really helpful,” he told Parade magazine. “They kind of disabuse you of the notion of your greatness pretty quickly. There’s a routine that you get into with kids that precludes you from going back to your single days. I’m probably more boring than I used to be. I go to bed earlier and I get up earlier.”
He said he hopes his daughters take after their mother. “My wife is a very wise and a very thoughtful person. Hopefully, they’ll inherit that,” Damon said.
Added the actor (who supports charities including One, which fights AIDS and poverty in third world countries): “From me, I hope they’ll inherit a sense of social justice and a desire to continue some of those programs that I’m involved with. Maybe not those exact ones, but hopefully, something to further social justice.”
And what if they don’t, Matt? What if they grow up to be just regular schmucks who are trying to make a good dollar at the end of the day so they can feed their own kids? Alright, I realize that probably won’t happen and that Matt’s kids probably won’t ever have to hammer it out at their job just trying to make ends meet. But God, who uses their children to talk about how much good they are doing for our planet and the people on it?
Every time I hear Matt Damon spout about his own awesomeness, I become enraged and just want to roll around in junk mail, telling him that I just subscribed to more places that will send me useless mail on paper that was made from beautiful lush greenery. Not that I love waste. But I would love the chance to make Matt Damon as infuriated as he makes me.
Congratulations Matt and Luciana. I’m sure that your newest conception was all a very strategic move on your part to make the world a better place for all of us.
