Matt Damon, who raises Alexia, 12, Isabella, 4, Gia, 2, and 3-month-old Stella with wife Luciana, says he doesn’t hit his girls to discipline them.
At the premiere of his new movie True Grit he told People, “I definitely don’t spank ’em.”
However the actor did give a real walloping to his 14-year-old costar Hailee Steinfeld during the shoot.
“It’s a scene in the movie that needs to be there for a whole host of reasons,” he said. “And so, they just put a big pad on Hailee. And we practiced. And I said, ‘Hailee, does that hurt?’ And she said, ‘I can’t even feel it.’ ”
While on location in New Mexico and Texas his family got to visit him. He said, “They were interested in seeing the horses. So, we got some pictures of them with the horses.”
Asked if it’s tough to control the four girls at home he answered, “Yeah, it’s kind of nuts. The alarm goes off, and [expletive] starts flying.”
