Matt and Lucy expecting another child, Empire win, 4th Bourne not certain

  • Matt's publicist Jennifer Allen has confirmed to People Online that Matt and Lucy are expecting their second child together. She would not confirm any other details to Access Hollywood.

    EXCLUSIVE: Matt Damon & Wife Expecting!

    Matt Damon's family is expanding: The actor and wife Luciana are expecting another baby, his rep Jennifer Allen tells PEOPLE exclusively.

    "They couldn't be happier," says Allen. "They're so excited!"

    The current PEOPLE Sexiest Man Alive, 37, and his wife, 32, stepped out Sunday night at the Empire Film Awards in London – with Luciana glowing (and sporting a baby bump).

    This is the third child for the family: Daughter Isabella was born in June 2006, and Luciana has a 9-year-old daughter, Alexia, from a previous marriage.

    The actor is currently shooting the CIA thriller Green Zone in Morocco.

  • At the ceremony Matt and Paul Greengrass stated that they have not signed on for a fourth Bourne movie, despite what the studio claims. Details from Empire - summary only.

    "We’ve just kind of been amused by the whole thing," said Matt Damon. "I think it’s one of these stories that has a life of it’s own. Not that we’re against it, we’re all for doing a fourth movie but it means coming up with a good story. There are a lot of things that would have to happen before we would sign up for it."

    In short: Bourne 4 is far from definite and we only want to see it if Greengrass and Damon are on board.

    P.S. We love them. If you want to see why, watch the awards on ITV2 or read the speeches. Or just meet them. They rule.

  • Matt also discussed Green Zone, as did Jason Isaacs in a separate article, where he talked about discussed Greengrass' unusual filming style.

    "We didn’t really have an agenda when we set out to make it other than we wanted to make a really good movie and a really honest movie," Damon told us of the tone on the red carpet of the Sony Ericsson Awards this evening. "We have all these real soldiers in the movie and that’s really interesting .You know there’s not really one opinion that the movie puts forward and there’s not one opinion from the soldiers themselves. People have very different views about what went on and what our role in the war is. One thing that Paul does really well in films like United 93 and Bloody Sunday is that he simultaneously puts forward a number of perspectives and you can just sit there and watch an event unfold in a way that feels really real and authentic; hopefully the movie will do that".

    "Yes, I'm playing Major Briggs," he told us. "I think we’ve changed his rank; I think he may be Lieutenant Colonel [in real life] or something – maybe they thought I was too creaky to be a major. But, yeah, I play a special forces soldier and I had on tap these fabulous resources of these guys who had just come back – and many of them are going back to Iraq – who had all these stories they were bursting to tell. I was just quite stunned by how receptive Paul is by taking the most dramatic stories and putting them on the screen".

    He continued,"[Paul]’s got a masterplan, but he’s changing it everyday depending on what he’s shot and so we’ve got these special forces guys and people who are really seriously lethal and a lot of arabs, who all had a lot of input. Paul takes what’s real and turns it into what’s exciting and watchable and every night you’re on your toes. You’re sat in a restaurant and have a chat and find out what you’re going to be filming the next day. Exactly what the rest of the film will be is up for grabs; it doesn’t mean it’s chaos, it means it’s probably more creative than any film I’ve ever been on."
