Matt Damon’s new movie, The Bourne Ultimatum, is winning both critical and box office acclaim and below are some excerpts from his interview with Entertainment Weekly.
What’s the hardest part of being a parent for you?
“We’ve done a lot of traveling. People are not so happy you’re on the plane because they’re trying to sleep and the baby’s not sleeping.”
On looking so tired in the movie:
I look so exhausted because I had a new baby. Even if I tried to have a methodical sleep-deprivation look in the film, it wouldn’t be as authentic as me being up all night with a crying baby at home.
Was it hard for you to decide to get married and have kids because of that?
“Everyone has their own cautionary tales from whatever they witnessed. In my case, I waited until I was 35 and I was really sure – as sure as you can be – that I was in the right relationship. That’s why I did it. I didn’t feel any great need to get married. People say, ‘Do you like being married?’ F—, no. It’s a ridiculous thing to do. But I like being married to her.”
Was it strange for you guys to be in Hawaii together this summer with your wives and kids? Was there ever a moment where you just laughed and said, Jesus, look at us?
“Yeah, seeing the kids playing together, that was a trip.”
What do you miss most about being a bachelor?
“It’s got to be the whores [laughs]. No, I mean my bachelorhood was kind of squandered making movies.”
I can’t wait to see the new Bourne movie!
And here’s a super hot pic just for fun!
