While no other details have been disclosed, Matt recently asked for prayers while promoting his latest project, Downsizing. "My dad's sick, so that's been a process we're going through," he told Extra. "We'll take any prayers you got, so yeah, throw 'em up there." Our hearts go out to Matt and his family.
