During the interview, he explained that he stopped using the “f-slur” after one of his daughters with wife Luciana voiced opposition to him using the word.

“The word that my daughter calls the ‘f-slur for a homosexual’ was commonly used when I was a kid, with a different application. I made a joke, months ago, and got a treatise from my daughter,” he said.

“She left the table. I said, ‘Come on, that’s a joke! I say it in the movie Stuck on You!’ She went to her room and wrote a very long, beautiful treatise on how that word is dangerous. I said, ‘I retire the f-slur!’ I understood.”

Last month, Matt Damon got teary eyed while premiering his latest film, Stillwater, during the Cannes Film Festival. Here is why.
