The family made a special red carpet appearance at the premiere of his latest film, 'Air' in Los Angeles.
Teenagers have their own way of roasting their parents. And Matt Damon's daughter is no exception. He appeared on "Late Night with Seth Meyers" on April 7, and he said that when it comes to his kids watching his movies, his daughter, Isabella, opts to watch his less-praised films, as reported by TODAY. "My 16-year-old likes to give me a hard time and she is very clear about not wanting to see anything that I'm in if she thinks it might be good," he said. Instead, she prefers to watch a film with negative reviews. "Oh my God," Meyers said. "That is the most ice-cold 16-year-old thing I've ever heard."

Damon gave an example of one of his "not very good" films, which was "The Great Wall." "My daughter was talking to one of her friends, and she was talking about this movie," Damon recalled. "She kept calling it, 'The Wall.' And I was finally like, 'Isabella, that movie is called, 'The Great Wall.'" "She was like, 'Dad, there is nothing great about that movie,'" Damon said. Meyers listening to this started laughing immediately. Damon has four daughters - Isabella, 16, Gia, 14, and Stella, 12, with his wife, Luciana Barroso. He also has one more daughter, Alexia, who is Barroso's daughter from her previous marriage.
The family made a special red carpet appearance at the premiere of his latest film, "Air" in Los Angeles. However, Gia was not part of the event. Damon rarely makes appearances with his family. In 2019, he made a new tattoo by an artist Winter Stone on his arm. It had the names of all his daughters written in cursive writing along with his wife's name Lucy.
Last month, Matt Damon and Ben Affleck, who are best friends, shared that they had a joint bank account in the late 1980s to help fund their auditions. "It was unusual, but we needed the money for auditions," Damon said, adding that it was "a weird thing in retrospect." Affleck shared that as best friends, they were rooting for each other's success and were comfortable sharing their money. "We were going to help each other and be there for each other," he said. "It was like, 'You’re not going to be alone. I'm not going to be alone. Let's go out there and do this together.' As long as one of us had money, we knew that the power wasn't going to get shut off."

"I remember after doing 'Geronimo,' I was like, f**k, I probably had like 35 grand in the bank. I was like [to Affleck], 'We're good! We're good for a year!'" added Damon. The pair also had rules on how they would spend the money. "You were allowed to take out $10 and get quarters and go to [the arcade] and play video games," Damon shared, reports PEOPLE. "Eventually we were allowed to try to buy beer, which never f**king worked."
Affleck and Damon met in Boston and studied at the same high school. The duo started auditioning together and acted together in their first movie, "School Ties," in 1992. They went on to do many films together, including, "Good Will Hunting" in 1997, for which they won an Oscar for Best Original Screenplay.
