Matt Damon once was the most wanted bachelor in Hollywood, and it's not surprising. In the early 2000s, he was in his early 30s, already an Academy Award winner, and devilishly handsome.

But you'd be surprised to know that Damon was never interested in starting a relationship with an actress. On the contrary, the Good Will Hunting star tied his life with a non-celebrity and hasn't regretted it since.

Who is Matt Damon's wife?

Matt Damon met Luciana Barrosa in 2003 when she was working as a bartender in Miami. Lucy recalled meeting him for the first time in an interview with Australian Vogue. She said he was doing a movie in South Beach and got swarmed by fans.

Damon hid behind Luciana's bar and decided to get to know her better. According to Lucy, their chemistry was instant:

We definitely had a connection right away, it was so easy to talk to each other we were very comfortable [with each other], and by the end of the night he invited me to go out with his friends.

However, Barrosa was previously divorced and had a daughter, which made her think it would kill Damon's interest in her, but she was wrong:

But I was like: ‘I can’t, I have a four-year-old daughter, I’m not going anywhere'… and that was one of the things he loved, that I had a daughter. He said: ‘I love that you’re a mum and that’s your priority’. Some guys might have been different, they might think it’s complicated, but for him it wasn’t.

The couple got married in 2005 and had three daughters together. The famous actor considers Lucy's daughter from her first marriage his child too, which makes him a proud father of four.

Luciana says she's never seen Matt as a celebrity, for her, he's her soulmate and partner:

When you meet somebody that you have a connection with, that’s just the person that you have a connection with, all the other stuff— the movie-star part—wasn’t really a factor. It was just Matt, to me he’s just Matt.

As for Damon, he thinks marrying a non-celebrity was the best decision in his life. As he told Esquire:

I got lucky. I fell in love with a civilian. Not an actress and not a famous actress at that.

They are indeed an absolutely wonderful couple.
