"You b##tard" - Brad Pitt to Matt Damon

Elysium star Matt Damon feels sorry for his pal Brad Pitt for being followed by paparazzi everywhere. Whereas he can walk his kids to school, the World War Z actor can't, Damon reveals. As he described it, Brad's face "just fell" when Matt bragged about the positive sides of being married to a "plain Jane."

The following report covers Matt Damon's latest feature story on Esquire, where he talks about Elysium, his career and married life with Luciana Barroso:
"
The `Bourne Identity` actor has managed to raise his children away from the spotlight unlike Pitt and his fiancee Angelina Jolie. Damon is happy he doesn’t lead a similar life.
"If you can control the celebrity side of celebrity, then it (being super famous) is worth it. 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,” Esquire magazine quoted the 42-year-old as saying, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
“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,” he added.

Damon feels bad for his celebrity friend as he is not able to even walk his children to school.
“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",” said Damon.

"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. Because then suddenly everybody wants to be in your bedroom,” he said.

"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," Damon said.
"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,” he added.
