Matt Damon Gets 'Walk of Fame' Star

Matt Damon Gets 'Walk of Fame' Star

Angel-faced actor Matt Damon is honored with the well-deserved 2,343th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Wednesday in Los Angeles. Not too long ago, he had his handprints and footprints cemented at the Grauman’s Chinese Theater alongside George Clooney and Brad Pitt.

“I can’t believe I’m standing on a star with my name on it. I’m going to show my kids that,” Matt beamed during the ceremony. “A few times in my life I’ve had these experiences that are just kind of too big to process and this looks like it’s going to be one of those times.”

Ben and I lived in a really crappy apartment about five blocks away from here and we used to walk up and down here. It’ll probably sink in when I’ve walked down the street in about six months and see someone peeing on my star,” he laughed.

Matt was accompanied by his wife Luciana Damon, his mother Nancy Carlsson-Paige (a professor of education at Lesley University in Cambridge, MA), Mayor of Hollywood Johnny Grant and Bourne director Paul Greengrass

Expect more Matt coverage tonight — the world premiere of The Bourne Ultimatum is tonight in Los Angeles!

In the meantime, check out this snippet of Variety‘s review of the film: “If they could bottle what gives The Bourne Ultimatum its rush, it would probably be illegal. The third and purportedly final installment in the mountingly exciting series is a pounding, pulsating thriller that provides an almost constant adrenaline surge for nearly two hours. Worldwide B.O. will be terrific and likely surpass that for each of the previous two pictures, which combined pulled down more than $500 million.”

  • Anonymous

    well deserved recognition

  • Ms Sugar Walls

    D.a.m.n. he is ugly! GAWWWD!

  • Ari

    I’m happy for him, he’s a great actor. Nice to see his Mommy joined him for this special ocassion.

  • Jane

    Matt and Lucy are looking great! And nice to see his mom there too.


    Congrats!!!! I happy for you Matt.

  • t

    his wife looks great! Congrats Matt! You’re a great actor!!

  • Emily

    He’s just now getting one? That surprises me a little. He’s such a great actor, I can’t wait for the Bourne Ultimatim.

  • They buy them!

    He didn’t ‘get’ it he bought it. lol They all buy it and you too can have one for a fee. I believe in the segment on a news channel that it’s something like 10 grand just to get an ‘interview’ then they decide wether or not to ‘give’ it to you and if not you don’t get that money back.

    So it kinda makes it pointless to congradulate them…

  • Crystal

    They look great. Lucy needs a sylist.

  • requiredname

    i dont think he is ugly..very boy next door. wow. he and jennifer aniston would make the perfect boy/girl next door couple.

  • [~Famous~]

    Its cool he got one, but they do give those things to anyone.

    Matt’s starting to look old, in the main picture he looks like The Predator.

    But Congrat’s

  • val

    his wife is not pretty, but she seems like a nice girl.

  • Colbert ROCKS!

  • Beefcake
  • lauren

    aww yay! i love matt.

  • carrie nae

    I like Matt. He may not be a next door boy type but she is smart choosing roles that makes himthrive as an actor.
    But my gosh, can’t his mother wear a better outfit, even a better footwear for her child’s important event???? That’s why Matt doesn’t look so pleased with her on those pictures. He seems like he wanted to get away from her.

  • spunky

    I love Matt Congrats he may have been voted Sexiest Man Alive yet but he has his own star on the HW Walk of Fame.

  • Audrey

    congrats Matt!!! it is well deserved.

  • [~Famous~]
  • FU

    His wife is cute. Anyone know how old he is? He seems like a “normal” guy. Good actor.

  • [~Famous~]

    I like Matt, Clooney, and the whole cast of Oceans. I like Brad Pitt, I just don’t like YOU or the new Crack-Head-Angelina.

    But isnt kind of strange the way you “luv” someone you don’t know?

    psycho-stalker much? Lol

  • Sarah

    Well deserved? Two walk of fames? Raves for The Bourne Ultimatum? A loving family? Reuniting with Ben Affleck? Seems like a good year! Shame Damon lost out to Leonardo Dicaprio for Revolutionary Road.

  • matt is a great actor

    25 is right famous., need to change your ways or take a break. You hate ‘Angie’ and you don’t know her. You sound ‘Crazy’. I’ve been here 2 yrs and ‘I know your comments!
    I digress..
    Matt Damon is in store for greater things, ‘Bourne Identity’ adds, are awesome,he kicks butt.
    Watch him in any movie he is in, he has always been one of my favorites,no matter what characters he portrays, he is just awesome.
    I’m liking his wife so much, he seems so content with his family.

  • MJ

    Congratulations to Matt! He deserves it. He’s the best actor around today.

  • http://! me

    Isnt Matt the golden boy? Sarah, I didn’t know he lost out to DiCaprio for that role Revolutionary Road. Leos a better fit with Kate Winslet –he’s closer in age. He took the role Good Shepard after Leo dropped out for Blood Diamond interestingly enough. I don’t think of them as the same really but they seem always to be up for the same roles…

  • jess

    love matt, glad his wife and mother don’t seem to have tension or drama….great family! they are a gorgeous couple, congrats matt

  • A Certain Smile

    Matt is a great actor. It is not true that any one can have a star. Yes, the placement is paid for but not usually by the star but this is after the star has been approved by a committee. His wife is quite lovely and he has a beautiful daughter and step-daughter. Looks like he made the right decision in not marrying any of those actresses he was dating.
    Congratulations on his star!

  • amanda

    Matt turned down Revolutionary Road. He wanted to do it, but he was still filming “Bourne” and Mendes couldnt wait because of the strike.

  • ash

    I love her shoes.

  • Love Matt

    I love you, Matt!! You deserve more recognition than you already have. I can’t wait to watch Bourne Ultimatum! I’m sure it will be a terrific movie. Matt Damon can cement his foot and handprints on my wall and floors and every inch of my house if he wants. hehe

    Thanks Jared, all awesome pics!!

  • Adoring Fan

    Congratulations Matty. A long time coming. You deserve it. You are my kind of people. Down to earth family oriented country boy. And easy on the eye as well. You and Lucy are too cool for the hollywood crowd. Kudows to you and yours. Be ever wonderful. I love you. Stay the course. Best wishes. You are solid and grounded. I can’t say it enough. I love you. I love you. I love you! You and Ben rock.

  • Spanish

    ¡¡¡Qué guapo está!!!, y además muy elegante, y Luciana también iba divina. Enhorabuena por la estrella en el paseo de la Fama, que es merecidísima porque es un actor de los mejores que hay.

  • A Person

    reunion? They have not broken up, they just have not had timed to really hook up.

    Lucie B is of course the deal.

    I love Matty’s mom she is super cool.

    I would not be surprise if the producer of Bourne bought the star. But my man deserves a star anyway.

  • Jonathan

    Why does he get a star now and not years ago?
    He’s a good actor for many years.
    I don’t get it!
