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.

Sean Hayes Reveals How 'Will & Grace' Landed Matt Damon in Fan-Favorite Guest Role

Sean Hayes is spilling some behind-the-scenes Will & Grace secrets!

After the hit sitcom came to an end for the second time earlier this week, Sean – who played Jack – is dishing some stories fans would love to know.

While appearing on PeopleTV’s Couch Surfing, Sean revealed how the show was able to land Matt Damon for a fan-favorite guest spot – and it was actually super easy!

“Matt and I used to play softball, a long, long, long, long, long time ago back then,” Sean shared via EW. “We were just playing and I was like, ‘Did you want to do the show?’ And he was like, ‘Yeah, why not?’ Literally it was that easy. He was like, ‘Yeah, I’ll come on the show.’”

Back in season four, Matt played Owen, who was going against Jack to land a spot in the Manhattan Gay Men’s Chorus. When Jack finds out Owen is really straight, he enlists Grace (Debra Messing) to help expose Owen so that he can get the spot.

“It was just a smart twist on an old story, the guy who pretended to be gay to get into the gay chorus as opposed to a gay guy pretending to be straight,” Sean continued. “I think that was a really smart twist.”

Matt Damon & Kate Winslet Join Cast of 'Contagion' for Pandemic PSAs - Watch (Video)

Matt Damon and Kate Winslet are reuniting with the cast of Contagion for an important cause.

The 2011 film, which has seen a surge in popularity amid the ongoing global health crisis, also starred Jennifer Ehle and Lawrence Fishburn, who are having a digital reunion on Friday (March 27) with an educational clip about the pandemic.

“A few years ago a bunch of us did this movie called Contagion, which we’ve noticed is is creeping its way back up on the charts on iTunes for obvious reasons, given what we’re all going through right now,” Matt says.

“In the movie I played a guy who was immune to the hypothetical virus that was spreading around the world. That was a movie. This is real life. I have no reason to believe I’m immune to COVID-19 and neither do you, no matter how young you are. This is a new virus. It’s gonna take some times for our bodies and our doctors to understand it and understand new ways to protect us.”

“In the movie Contagion, I played an epidemiologist trying to stop the spread of a hypothetical virus. To prepare for the role, I spent time with some of the best public health professionals in the world. And what was one of the most important things they taught me? Wash your hands like your life depends on it because right now, in particular, it just might,” Kate said.

“So if you’re feeling overwhelmed, a little bit powerless at the moment, here’s something we can all do to make a difference. And it doesn’t require a medical degree, or a microscope, or a ton of knowledge.”

Matt Damon Sports Epic Mullet on 'Last Duel' Set

Matt Damon is sporting an epic mullet on the set of his new Ridley Scott movie The Last Duel on Monday (February 17) in Sarlat, France.

If you don’t know, Matt and his BFF Ben Affleck co-wrote the screenplay for the film. They are both set to star in the film as well alongside Jodie Comer (pictured in these photos) and Adam Driver.

According to Variety, the movie is an epic tale of betrayal and justice, told from three distinct points of view: two knights (Damon and Driver) whose bond is tested by treachery and a young woman (Comer) forced to navigate the brutal and oppressive culture of the era in order to survive.

The movie is expected in theaters in January of 2021.

It has been a while since we’ve seen photos of Matt Damon, and he certainly looks different in costume!
