Matt Damon has been busy promoting his latest film 'Elysium', and he gave an extensive interview to the Guardian about the film and his personal life in the past few years.
One of the topics that Matt touches upon is how he's largely unaffected by fame, especially because he didn't marry a famous person. He has discussed this topic before, and he compares his own experience with his wife to Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner, saying, "I think marrying somebody who’s not a celebrity, it just takes a lot of the pressure off. Ben’s wife, Jennifer Garner, she sells a s–tload of magazines in the midwest. Magazines that – Ben explained this to me – you and I have never heard of, but that appeal to a mom in the midwest, who for some reason identifies with Jennifer and wants to know what she’s doing as a mom. As a result of that, there are always five cars outside their house.”
He also mentions that he and his family recently moved to LA from New York, but they wouldn't hesitate to move again if the paparazzi and attention got to become too much. Matt explains, "Well, if that part is really bad, then we’ll leave. It’s just not worth it. There are things I’m willing to give up, you know, but there’s a limit.”
Elysium is currently getting strong reviews, and it set to open this coming weekend. The film, in addition to starring Matt Damon and Jodie Foster, also stars Alice Braga, William Fichtner, and Sharlto Copley.
