Though Matt Damon has made it clear that he’s not planning on having any more kids, it seems he’s still holding out hope that his buddy good Ben Affleck will add a boy to their big bunch of girls.
“I really hope it’s a boy,” laughed the Bourne Identity star, who is dad to 4 daughters, when asked about Ben and his wife Jennifer Garner, parents of 2 girls themselves, and their recent pregnancy announcement.
“No, I think that you always cross your fingers for a healthy kid,” Matt continued. “Everybody would settle for a very healthy, beautiful baby.”
Matt went on to chat about working once again with Gwyneth Paltrow, his co-star in the upcoming thriller Contagion.
“We talked about kids a lot, it was nice to reconnect,” he said. “We were very young when we made [The Talented Mr. Ripley together]. It feels like a lifetime ago.”
Matt had heaps of praise for Gwyneth, who has kids Apple and Moses with her husband Chris Martin: “I was reminded of just how amazing she is, she’s a really special actress…. More so than anybody I’ve ever worked with, she’s got an ability to turn it on and off. Like she can just be talking about anything and then when they say, ‘Rolling,’ it’s like she snaps, she just locks in, in a way I don’t understand, ’cause I can’t do it.”
