Matt Damon, at least in the “Bourne” series, looks like a bullet. He has short hair, no stubble to speak of, and a blunt nose. In violent scenes, his eyes go dead, and he has a strong, compact body, which he hurls through the frame, ricocheting off walls, windows, cars, and fences. In person, Damon is thoughtful and friendly, with a ready smile, and he has shown an increasing range as an actor. Sociable and fast-talking in "The Departed," he was glum and all but immobile in "The Good Shepherd." As the C.I.A. assassin Jason Bourne, however, Damon is a smooth and deadly object.
Following the premiere of The Bourne Ultimatum, Matt Damon and his real-life leading lady, wife Luciana, celebrated at Hollywood's Palladium. The couple were joined by his mom at a reserved table inside the afterparty, a secret-agent-themed bash with a backdrop of New York's skyline and white orchids floating on every table. Damon’s BFF Ben Affleck and wife Jennifer Garner stopped by, too, and had had plenty of people who wanted to say hi to them. Says an onlooker: "All eyes truly were on the Damons and Afflecks."
