Matt Damon loves New York. After relocating to the Big Apple from Miami last year, the famous dad says that he and his wife Luciana Barrosa and their girls have no plans to leave.
“They’re all thriving. That’s why we’re so excited about it here,” Matt tells the USA Today of stepdaughter Alexia, 11, and daughters Isabella, 3, and Gia, 1. “We’re not leaving. Nobody bothers me. The younger ones are not aware of any of the celebrity (stuff). We walk to school every morning. We play in the park. It feels like a normal life.”
Several months ago the 39-year-old star of The Informant admitted that a move out west was a possibility – in part because that’s where his close pal Ben Affleck makes his home with Jennifer Garner and their girls Violet, 4, and Seraphina, 1.
“We each have two girls within six months of each other. It’s a strong argument to buy a house there and be near Ben,” he said at the the time. “We’ll see how the little kids do (in New York). If the winter is too tough, we might move to L.A. All my friends with kids live there.”
Next up for Matt is the action film The Green Zone, opening tomorrow.
