“Dad, there was nothing great about this movie”

Matt damon may be one of the most famous actors in the world, but the Oscar-winning actor’s four daughters appear to be in charge at home.

In an interview with CBS Sunday morning to promote his new film Still water, Damon, 50, explained that his kids show no mercy when they rank over their dear old daddy. In fact, her 15-year-old daughter, Isabella, refuses to see her dad’s beloved movie, Goodwill hunting.

“She doesn’t want to see any movie I’m in that could be good. She just likes to give me shit,” Damon said with a laugh. “My daughter said to me, ‘Hey, remember that movie you made, The wall? ‘ I said, ‘it was called The great wall. ‘ She says, ‘Dad, there was nothing great about that movie.’ She keeps my feet firmly on the ground. “

It was only after a “family reunion” in which Damon sat down with his wife Luciana and his four daughters that Damon agreed to play the part in Still water, in which he portrays an oil rig worker who travels to France to get his daughter out of prison. The family follows a rule that they are not separated for more than two weeks at a time. however, Still water was the first movie they “broke” the rule for, said Damon, who added, “it was really tough.” Still, he loves knowing that his kids see how passionate he is about his job.

“I like them to know that I love my job,” Damon said. “They know it takes time and a lot of work, and that it fills me.”

Damon will avoid working again this fall so he can move his family to New York and prepare his children for new schools. Being a strong presence is important to him.

“Look, they’re growing up with a lot more stuff than their mom or I ever had,” Damon said. “So we’re keeping an eye on this.”

But as attentive as he tries to be, Damon admitted that he worries his children about living a more privileged lifestyle.

“Yeah, I’m worried – but, you know, I think when I got to Harvard I met a lot of kids who are really wealthy … and some of them were in a lot of pain there.” , Damon said. “Their parents weren’t there for them, you know, like, at all. And I remember thinking, ‘Oh, I get it’, like, this money doesn’t solve anything. “

Having a family also affects Damon’s emotions, he admitted. At the recent premiere of Still water at the Cannes Film Festival, Damon was brought to tears by the five-minute applause he received from the crowd. He says it’s not that rare for him to cry these days.

“I think I choke more easily now … since I have kids. It’s like my job has gotten a lot easier, because I don’t have to try. I haven’t. need to have emotions … whether it is joy or pain … everything is right next door, because the stakes are so much higher when you have children “, he said declared.
