Matt and his girls are back on the West Coast after a busy month promoting his latest film, Promised Land, around NYC. He hit the red carpet to premiere the movie alongside his costar and cowriter John Krasinski, and spoke about the controversy surrounding the environmental film. One of Matt's most famous projects, Good Will Hunting, celebrated its 15th anniversary today. Matt and his best friend, Ben Affleck, sat down with Boston magazine recently to reflect on the making of the film, including what it was like to win an Oscar for best original screenplay.

The film opens in limited release later this month on Dec. 28.
Matt's heading into the holidays with his five leading ladies. As part of his press tour for Promised Land, Matt spoke to Playboy about both his career and his family. He only had sweet things to say about his life as a husband and father. Matt told the magazine, "When I turned 40, I had my whole family and some friends together. I realized I had to make a toast and hadn’t thought of anything to say. I stood up, and what came to me seemed incredibly true in the moment and even more so as time has gone by. I said, 'I think I might actually be the luckiest guy on earth. I really might be him.'"
Matt Damon and his wife, Luciana, took off from NYC yesterday and flew home to LA. Also along for the cross-country trip were their three youngest daughters, Isabella, Gia, and Stella.

Matt said, "It's a lovely thought — in practice."

Matt may be hanging out on the East Coast, but he's creating buzz in Hollywood with his latest project. It's been over a decade since Matt teamed up with his Good Will Hunting director, Gus Van Sant, but the two are giving it another shot in the first Promised Land trailer.

You'll have to wait until 2013 to see Matt and John share the big screen when the film opens nationwide Jan. 11.
