Matt Damon Talks Famous Friends, Says Brad and Angelina Are 'Like Prisoners'

matt damon talks famous friends

Sounds like you've got it pret-ty good, Matt!

During a recent interview, Matt Damon spoke about some of his famous friends, and it's quite clear that he doesn't envy them:

"I have friends who are like prisoners. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie for instance. They can't just go someplace. If they go for a walk, it turns into an international incident."

And here's what Matt had to say about his life, which ISN'T prison-like:

"I'm really lucky, because I have the best of both worlds. I do the work that I love and need, but don't need paramilitary troops to protect me when I walk out my front door."

"Ever since I found my wife (Luciana) and we had children, my whole life revolves around that. It gave my life a dramatic change in direction. I'm not as crazy as most of the other stars. I don't really know why, probably because I married a woman who isn't an actress. And we live in New York. As long as we don't show up in typical tourist spots, we can walk the streets without being noticed. New Yorkers are very cool, they don't flip out if they see me."

Def sounds like you've hit the life jackpot, Matt! We're happy for you!

…But don't think you're TOTALLY off the hook, Mr. Damon! If we catch you eating somewhere like your Rainmaker co-star Jon Voight, don't think we won't say something. LOLz.

    that's also because you really don't comment on ur relationship damon or put all ur business out there brad and angie are fame whores they love this life and their names in the papers etc why else would they talk about how they sneak time away from the kids to fuck or how they feel in love etc. why comment at all because they love the attention…angie used to do the same with billy bob and talk about their sex life etc. and they have to stay revelant because for angie it works to bring light to her charity work as she visits other countries and brad brings it to his films etc. they are in co hoots with these magazines and everyone knows it thats why the mags are always bashing jen so no i don't feel bad for them if they want privacy they have their huge mansion in france instead they are jetsetting around the world showing off their gang of children that pax always looks like hes in a bad mood…so boo hoo i see that in france johnny deep and his wife/children are able to keep a low profile don't understand why these two can't do the same

    Re: Josephine05 – you are right, Damon is just spouting BULLSHIT. Brangelina rents/owns a French manion that they stay at ONCE IN A WHILE. I am sure they can walk n thos 75 acres. Yes, I understand they need securkty for their children, but if they stayed in one village for a while and got FRIENDLY with the people THERE. they should be able to walk, converse with people, and have their kids MAKE FRIENDS. They put themselves into their on situaton, jumping from country to country, dour face, guarded. LEARN TO LET YOUR GUARD DOWN ONCE IN A WHILE, AND SMILE SMILE SMILE

    maybe aj and brad should move to NYC since NY'ers don't "flip out"……..??? just sayin'………

    They are "prisoners"? What bullshit. They have too many fucking kids that's for sure.

    From the beginning they sold their lives to the "paps" for money. If they're living in a prison (so not) it's one they made themselves. No one really cares anymore about them. Angie is bony and scrawny and Brad has been looking like an old goat.

    Matt has the great boy next door look and is a great actor
    and has wisely chosen to live off the radar compared to a lot of famous people
    .
    same with Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick in a way–probably quite a few others
    it appears that new York City offers a more normal life style and New Yorkers offer them an amount of normalcy and privacy that Hollywood doesn't
    .
    by observation, smart celebs live off the grid and becasue of that their relationships seem to last longer
    even Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward didn't chose to live in LA

    Maybe if they knocked off all of the self promotion, reduced all the planned "spontaneous happy family" photo ops, and just concentrated on their family - they could resume normal lives. Preferably in some distant land.
