Matt took some time to sign autographs on his way to a press junket in NY the other day. His latest film, The Good Shepherd, is due out December 22nd and has an all star cast including Robert De Niro and Angelina Jolie. In the film, Matt plays an intelligence agent who puts his work above all else, even his wife and son. In real life, however, Matt is quite the opposite. He says he loves being a daddy to his six month old Isabella. Here's more:
Admitting that the overall feeling is, "Great, great. That's been just amazing," Damon....says that fatherhood "defies description, actually. I don't really know how to talk about it, because I don't really know – I feel like I got made a member of a club that I didn't know existed."
"I didn't think that this would happen to me," Damon continued. "Other people were always showing me baby pictures or trying to hand me the baby, and I was like, 'Get that thing away from me. I don't want to touch your kid. Give me a break.' But I'm totally into it now."
At first, the "scared" actor was "kind of excited for my daughter to be 2. I was excited for her to start kind of talking and walking and toddling around hanging out, but I didn't realize how much personality little people have right off the bat. So it's just been fun."
His favorite activity with his daughter, he said, is getting her to laugh. "You do this thing where you can either give her (a raspberry) on the stomach or if you sort of act like you're going to munch her underarm, and she laughs like a little machine gun. And it's like I could do it forever."
OMG - could he be any cuter?
