He may be a megastar, but Matt Damon is, first and foremost, a doting dad. While Matt was in Sydney for the premiere of The Bourne Ultimatum, his wife, Luciana, and 13-month daughter Isabella were at home in the U.S. So to try to ease the tyranny of distance Matt and Luciana hooked up a video chat through their computers.

"My daughter was actually trying to reach out for me and hug the computer this morning," a noticeably upset Matt told Confidential. "She thought I was right there in the computer and was reaching out from her mummy's lap and I just wanted to reach out to her, it was terrible."
He said to save heartbreak for all parties, the video chat facility would be put away for a year or so, until bubs was old enough to get it.
