Matt Damon Will Take a Year Off from Acting

Matt Damon sits down for an interview with AOL Build on Thursday (July 28) in New York City.

The 45-year-old actor also appeared at the SiriusXM Town Hall that day to promote his new movie Jason Bourne.

While on the Today Show that morning, Matt announced that he plans on taking a year off from acting to spend time with his family.

“I took a bunch of roles in a row. I’ve done four straight movies in a row and I have one more to go,” Matt said. He mentioned how he has “dragged” his family “all over the world” for his film shoots.

“They’re really good sports. They’re great travelers. But I’m excited to finish out this year of work and take a year off and be at their behest for once,” he said.
