Matt Damon thanked him on the Oscars’ red carpet. Brad Pitt stayed at his house. Arnold Schwarzenegger talked politics with him.
“I have enjoyed almost every job that I have had, I have to say. Maybe I’m just easy to please, but the quality of people that I get to work with is pretty extraordinary, so what’s not to like?” Monich said.
In particular Monich raved about his time on the set of “The Talented Mr. Ripley” where he was able to travel about the Italian cities of Rome, Naples, Ischia, Tuscany, Palermo, and Venice. He also added that the movies he has done in Africa "are just incredible."
Currently, Monich is at work in New Mexico working on a film with Matt Damon.
Matt Damon seems to fly under the radar as a high-profile dad, a fact he attributes to having a fairly boring life. Well, kids’ll do that to you. Nonetheless, boring lives often make for good parents. And Damon, who is often spotted in the company of his adorable kids, seems to be a great dad. On a personal note, I’ve bumped into him at the playground before, and not only is he awesome with his own kids–he’s pretty cool with everyone else’s, too.
