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.
