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.
