Matt Damon celebrated his 45th birthday in London on Friday with his family.
“The Martian” star was at Claridge’s hotel having lunch with wife Luciana, their daughters and friends.
“Matt was with his wife, some friends and seven kids,” a spy told Page Six.
A nanny also pitched in with the tykes, we hear, and the restaurant brought out a big cake to celebrate.
Monday through Wednesday I spent on the set of the fifth installment of the Jason Bourne movie franchise, watching the filming of the still-untitled sequel, currently referred to as Bourne 5. As regular readers of this column know, I am a producer of the Bourne film series. And I must say, the new film promises to be as exciting if not more so than the four predecessors.
Matt Damon looks great, returning as Jason Bourne 14 years after being cast in the first one. In fact, he looks better (don’t we all wish we could say that?). Julia Stiles is also back, reprising her role as Nicki Parsons, and delivers an amazing performance. And fans of the series will be happy to know that the action in this installment fully lives up to, if not exceeds, Jason Bourne standards. You will not be disappointed; I guarantee it.
The production will be based in London for the next month or so and then head to places such as Berlin, Washington, DC and Las Vegas. I’m hoping, between now and mid-February when shooting wraps, to be able to carve out some more time to be on set.
