Australian break, holiday plans
  • Matt and family have been on holiday in Australia visiting Chris Hemsworth, Elsa Pataky and family.

  • Matt's mother Nancy Carlsson-Paige discussed Matt's holiday and upcoming plans at the Boston Herald:

    Matt Damon is once again hanging out in Australia with Hollywood pal Chris Hemsworth, which has only refueled last month’s refuted rumors that he was relocating his family to the country for political reasons. But the trip Down Under has long been on the docket for Damon and it doesn’t mean he’s moving there full time.

    “That’s crazy!” Nancy Carlsson-Paige, Damon’s mother and a professor at Lesley University, told the Track shortly after the rumors first arose.

    “Matt is going to Australia for a bit, then to Spain, then to Atlanta — he travels a lot,” she added.

    Nanny Connie Article

    In an article about celeb nannies, Matt and Lucy's nanny had a cute story to tell about them.

    "Even experienced parents, such as Matt Damon and wife Luciana Barroso, have plenty to learn. When Simpson arrived to help out after the birth of their second child, Gia, in 2008, the nanny was shocked to hear of the lengths the couple had gone through to put their older, then-2-year-old daughter to bed when she was a tiny babe.

    “They told me how the room would be pitch black, how they would play a song over and over and over again, and how they had worn a path from walking back and forth with their new bundle,” she says.

    Simpson intervened with a “Hell nah, dawg,” and her patented sleep ritual for newborns: a warm bath, some soft music, a quick massage for the little one and a bottle of breast milk. “I placed Gia into her bassinet and just like that, she was off having a party with the Sandman,” Simpson says. “Matt and Lucy looked at me like I was Houdini.”

    Re: Nanny Connie Article

    That's funny (but every child is different). She probably travelled with them for a while.

    Bourne prequel

    Tangentially Matt related - USA TV is developing a Bourne prequel.


    I actually think this is an interesting idea. I have a backstory for Bourne all laid out in my mind, of course - ha. How he met Nicky, etc.

    Double Island


    Matt, you're more than welcome to knock on my Mum's door in Cooloola Cove, Tin Can Bay.

    Tell her Mel mentioned she makes the best scones, so you thought you'd drop by in the area :)

    You can enjoy a beer with my step-Dad out fishing on his tinnie

    Article on Matt's Mon

    I wonder if stories from your childhood are still embarrassing to someone who is 47. this one is cute.


    When a fireplace fire in the family’s apartment got out of control, single mom Carlsson-Paige tried to smother it with a blanket while calling for her sons to help. Kyle, 8, brought water, but Matt, 5, appeared in his red bathrobe, with a firefighter’s hat and a piece of hose attached to nothing.

    “That was his rescue hero outfit, and he really believed it gave him power over situations that were out of his control. He really believed it would help,” Carlsson-Paige says of the incident, which happened more than 40 years ago.

    Re: Article on Matt's Mon

    Although she saw her son’s acting aptitude early on, the educator didn’t let Matt join a drama club until middle school. “I didn’t want him memorizing someone else’s words at a young age; I wanted him to keep writing his own scripts in his head.”

    I love this. I think that I'll buy the book.

    For anyone interested, this is her TED talk:

    Interview with Luke Hemsworth

    You had a great cameo in Thor: Ragnarok as an actor playing Thor along with Matt Damon as an actor playing Loki. Are we going to get to see any more of you in the Marvel Universe?

    I hope so. We’ve been talking to Taika [Watiti]. I’m pretty sure me there is could be a scene where me and actor Loki are in a pub in another world and we’re thrown in somewhere and end up saving people. I mean there is a lot. It was so much fun. One of the best days around. It was awesome. Except my sweat was dripping on Matt Damon’s eyes. It was like 110 degrees in Atlanta and Taika is feeding us lines. I’m dripping sweat on Matt. My beard is flopping off. They stick glue on you and you get sweatier and then they paint more glue on you. You are all sweaty. Matt was great about it. He’s great. He’s a lovely guy.
