Matt Damon Reveals He Has The Same Tattoo As Heath Ledger Did

Matt shared that the inspiration came when he decided to get his first ink, and reached out to a friend “who did all of Heath Ledger’s tattoos,” and picked out the one that Heath also had.

“That’s something that Heath had on his arm,” Matt explained. “Heath was an incredibly restless, creative person. Like, I talked to the person who did his hair on The Patriot and she said he hated sitting still so much ‘that by the time I got the wig on and I set it and everything, and I’d finished, he’d get up and there would be a sculpture of bobby pins that he’d done.’ He was really sensitive. This stuff just flowed out of him. He was really special.”

He added, “I just wanted to get something that Heath had. Scott [the tattoo artist] showed me his laptop and I said, ‘Scott, what’s that one?’ And he goes ‘I have no idea ― I think that’s just some sh** that Heath squiggled.’ And I went, ‘That’s the one I want.’”

Matt also confirmed his wife, Luciana Barroso, also has the tattoo on her foot.

“So we both have that,” he shared. “It’s like a little creative little blessing. It’s like an angel that looks over all these names that are on the arm.”

Matt and Heath starred together in The Brothers Grimm.
