Matt Damon and his wife Luciana have Matt’s mom to thank for their chance encounter. Matt revealed that he was considering signing on for a part in the war drama Rescue Dawn, but his mom urged him to reconsider, which ultimately led him to meeting Luciana:
“Werner and I were talking about Rescue Dawn about eight years ago with me possibly playing the Christian Bale role. I was really strongly considering that and instead I met with the Farrelly Brothers.
“I remember talking to my mother and she said, ‘You know, you don’t always have to go into a jungle and lose a bunch of weight. You’re allowed to have a little fun.’ “So I did the Farrelly Brothers movie and that there was where I met my wife, so, four kids later, that was a pretty fateful decision.”
What great advice and how cool that it led to meeting his future wife!
