    Matt Damon says his happiest moments were in bed making his children and watching them being born.

    Asked by Vanity Fair for their Proust questionnaire, when and where he was happiest, Matt answered: "In our bed, making our children, and in the hospital watching them being born."

    Matt also revealed his personal motto is "Don't be a d-bag."

    Surprisingly, Damon — a Cambridge, Mass., native and Red Sox fan — said the one city he’d like to live in is New York.

    Damon says that his greatest achievement is his marriage, that his real life heroes are his parents, and that his favorite names are those of his wife and children.

  • Video of Matt's GQ cover shoot at Coney Island is at GQ.com.

  • A News Ltd interview with Matt is available here.

    Damon will also make his directorial debut with a screenplay he co-wrote with The Office's John Krasinski.

    "I'm really excited about it. I have been wanting to direct for a long time and this script has just gotten really good. It's something I want to get right because it's something I want to be able to do (in the future)."

    Damon describes the as-yet untitled project as a "small story" about a salesman who goes to upstate New York and is changed by the experience.

  • We Bought A Zoo continues to perform well at the box-office and has now made $44.49 million in the US after two weeks.
