Just when we thought we couldn’t like the Oscar winner anymore than we do, he comes out with a statement like that and we fall a little harder. But Matt admits that four kids is enough — and his wife, Luciana, who’s due to give birth any day now, isn’t going to have more babies.
Matt Damon became a bona fide movie star by playing super secret agent Jason Bourne, but his best role these days is playing super dad! The star of the new movie Hereafter is about to become a father for the fourth and — if he means what he says — last time, and knows that the most important thing he can do these days is focus on raising his four daughters right. “If I had a bucket list, I’d say raising my four girls to be strong, good women would be number one,” the 40-year-old says in the new issue of Parade magazine.
And, he insists, four is all he’s going to have. “My wife [Luciana, 35] is about to have our fourth kid and we’ve drawn a line in the sand. This is it. Our lives are full and wonderful and we’re done having kids. Lucy is in her third trimester for the fourth time and I think that’s about enough to ask of any woman.”
Matt’s new movie, directed by Clint Eastwood, is about what might be waiting for us after death, and he admits it’s a topic that comes up with his daughters. “I think what’s important for kids to know is that your decisions here on earth matter, your behavior matters, and how you treat other people matters. It matters here and I’m hoping that it matters in the afterlife, too. It just comes down to accountability for your own behavior that’s important.”
