Matt Damon Reveals Why He's Quarantining in Ireland

Matt Damon, his wife Luciana, and their three daughters Isabella, 13, Gia, 11, and Stella, 9, are all quarantining in the small town of Dalkey, Ireland, and he’s explaining why.

“I’m in the middle of a movie that I shot the first half in France and we were moving to Ireland and kind of right when we arrived in Ireland, the movie was shut down,” Matt explained during an appearance on SPIN 1038 Fully Charged.

He also added that his 21-year-old stepdaughter Alexia is in college in New York City and she contracted Coronavirus.

“Our oldest daughter’s in college. Obviously that’s been shut down, but she’s in New York City. She had COVID really early on along with her roommates and got through it fine,” Matt said. “So I shouldn’t say our whole family’s together. Of our four kids we’ve got the three younger ones and our oldest one, we’ll reunite with her at the end of the month. But everybody’s OK.”

Matt also spoke about the Ireland town he’s living in currently.

“It’s incredible. It’s one of the most beautiful places we’ve ever been. Obviously what’s going on in the world is horrible, but for my family, it timed out. I’m with my whole family, I’ve got my kids, and we had teachers with us because we were planning on missing school for about eight weeks, so we’ve got what nobody else has, which is actual live human beings teaching our kids. All their friends, the schools are all shut down back home and the kids are doing remote learning, so we feel guilty. We’ve got this incredible set up in this place, which is gorgeous,” he added.
