Jealous That Matt Damon Gets To Walk His Kids To School

Brad Pitt and Matt Damon are both talented A-list actors and family men.  In a recent interview with Esquire, Matt touched on the subject of tabloid interest and paparazzi presence.

Matt shared that Brad is jealous of his ability to take his kids to school and live a relatively normal life away from the spotlight.    “I look at Brad – and I have for years – and when I’m with him I see the intensity of that other side of it. And the paparazzi and the insane level of aggression they have and their willingness to break the law and invade his space – well, I wonder about that trade. I remember telling him that I walk my kids to school, and his face just fell. He was very kind, but he was like, ‘You b**tard’. Because he should be able to do that, too. And he can’t.”

Matt explains that part of the reason is his choice of life partner, “I got lucky, I fell in love with a civilian. Not an actress and not a famous actress at that. Because then the attention doesn’t double – it grows exponentially.”

Luciana Barroso isn’t the only reason the paparazzi give him some breathing room.  “But I don’t really give them anything (to report on). If I’m not jumping up and down on a bar, or lighting something on fire, or cheating on my wife, there’s not really any story to tell. They can try to stake me out, but they’re always going to get the same story – middle-aged married guy with four kids. So as long as that narrative doesn’t change too much, there’s no appetite for it.”
