Matthew Paige "Matt" Damon is one of Hollywood’s most successful American actors who is also known for his philanthropic work all over the world. Born October 8, 1970 under the Libra sign, Matt became a household name after the unexpected success of the film Good Will Hunting in 1997. Displaying his multi faceted skills, he acted and co-wrote the movie with close friend Ben Affleck. The dynamic duo won an Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay and a Golden Globe Award for Best Screenplay for their highly praised flick. Libra is connected to success because of his ability to be a social butterfly and mingle with different kinds of people.
Basking under his new found fame, Damon further bolstered his status as Hollywood’s new generation of profitable actors by starring in blockbuster hits including Saving Private Ryan, the Ocean's trilogy, and the Bourne series. Due to his string of successful movies, he became one of the top forty highest grossing actors of all time. In 2007, Damon earned himself a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, while being named Sexiest Man Alive by People magazine.
Just like his acting career, Damon also enjoyed a very active love life. While filming Good Will Hunting, he met and dated his co-star Minnie Driver. The two had a long term relationship before calling it quits due to their busy schedules. Libra needs constant affection and demands time from his partner. Just months after the breakup, he fell in love with actress Winona Ryder, whom he had a two-year relationship with. From 2001 to 2003, he was often photographed with Odessa Whitmire, a former personal assistant of Billy Bob Thornton and Ben Affleck. Libra is regarded as a very loving and generous partner. Although they like to flirt, they value long term relationships and trust.
In 2003, Damon met Argentine-born Luciana Bozán Barroso, a beautiful bartender in one of Miami’s clubs. The two had an instant rapport and dated for two years after deciding to get hitched on December 9, 2005. The couple was wed via a civil ceremony held at the Manhattan Marriage Bureau near New York City Hall.
