Engagement, Syriana poster
  • There are more reports today that Matt and Lucy are engaged, and this looks more official than previous occasions. First announced at the website of Us magazine:

    Us Weekly has learned exclusively that Matt Damon, 34, is engaged to his girlfriend of over two years Luciana Barroso. Damon met Barroso while filming Stuck on You in Miami. A rep for Damon tells Us that the actor popped the question "shortly before labor day." The couple have not yet set a wedding date, but a source close to the pair expects them to wed in Barroso's native South Florida. Sure to be a part of the ceremony: Barroso's seven-year old daughter Alexa. "Matt is really good to Alexa," says a source. "He is going to be a great father." Damon is currently filming both The Good Shephard with Angelina Jolie and Martin Scorsese's The Departed.

  • And the AP wire report:

    Matt Damon, girlfriend reportedly engaged

    NEW YORK (AP) — Matt Damon and his girlfriend, Luciana Barroso, are engaged, Us Weekly reported Monday. A publicist for the Bourne Identity actor told the magazine that after dating for two years, Damon popped the question "shortly before Labor Day." Damon's publicist, Jennifer Allen, didn't immediately return a call from The Associated Press late Monday. The couple haven't set a wedding date, Us Weekly said. It would be Damon's first marriage. Barroso has a daughter, Alexa, from a previous relationship. Damon's screen credits also include The Brothers Grimm,Ocean's Eleven and The Talented Mr. Ripley. He shared a screenplay Academy Award with his friend Ben Affleck for 1997's Good Will Hunting.

  • The Contactmusic site also reports:

    The GOOD WILL HUNTING actor gave [Lucy] a "beautiful big diamond ring" he bought from jeweller Alvin Goldfarb in Seattle, Washington, the representative tells American magazine Us Weekly.

  • A new poster for Syriana is available here.

    That's great. But how come in the article it says the publicist confirmed it but then his publicist didn't return the call to confirm it?

    Matt Damon Engaged

    What lovely news! I'm sure they'll be happy together. They seem very well matched. I love the Syriana poster, can't wait until the film comes out.

    Well I'm not happy.

    One more great guy off the market. I guess now I'll have to just go worship George Clooney.

    Syriana Poster

    The poster looks really awesome! I can't wait to see the movie. It should be really good.

    If he's happy....

    I'll be happy for him. However, honestly speaking, I really hope this is just a rumor. Not that I would ever have had the chance to meet Matt and get to know him etc..., but as long as he was not married I had SOME hope that it could happen. Congrats Matty!!

    Syriana Poster

    I don't really care for the poster. It is okay. I am looking forward to seeing the movie, of course.
    I have been really busy since seeing Brothers Grimm, but I did want to say that I enjoyed the movie. The visual/special effects and the performances were all good.

    I am happy for Matt, but so jealous of Lucy.

    Matt and Lucy engaged?

    I heard from an exalreadytremely reliable source that...
    they are already married. Don't ask me how I know
    because I would have to kill you if I told you! (lol)

    But, it's true.

    Re: Matt and Lucy engaged?

    Frist off don't even say that.

    Secondly, I find that really hard to believe since it seems to me like Matt gets engaged everytime he has a movie comming out. Let's face it. We heard this exact same rumor exactly a year ago. How many times has he been "engaged" anyway?

    Thirdly, doesn't he seem like the big catholic weding type to you? I think if (God forbid) he should get married, that we would all hear about it.

    Re: Matt and Lucy engaged?

    Nurrie muncher, I'm sure you already know the answers and are just being flippant, but...

    Matt has only been engaged once before, to Skylar Satenstein (although he often changed from admitting that to denying it in the early days of fame). He was never publicly engaged to anyone else, although the media kept claiming he was engaged to Winona, Odessa and a few months ago, to Lucy. The confirmation of his engagement this week is certainly the first time he has admitted he is engaged to anyone after Skylar.

    And it was nicely timed so that he won't have to talk about it to the media until November (he never publicly seeks out giving this kind of information). You'll likely never hear about the wedding until after it happens (remember how much he commended Ben/Jen G for their quick and private nuptials).

    Not munching too much these days then? Time for a name change.

    (I'm sorry, have we met?)

    (Seeing how you are using my full name there, you must know me. So who are you MDC? Someone from a green and black galaxy a long time ago, whose job it is to make Matt Damon look good online? You should PM me somewhere else.)

    Maybe it's just to have his face on a tabloid between "Grimm" and "Syriana". A girl can hope. I know you posted that he was engaged a year ago. It made me cry on my birthday, and here my birthday is agian and it made me cry agian.

    Re: (I'm sorry, have we met?)

    I don't know you - only that your name obviously derives from PGL. I've been involved with this site since 1999 and was registered with PGL from 2000 when it opened. I choose what I want to include on the site because that's my right.

    People actually cried upon hearing this news? That's a worry.

    Re: (I'm sorry, have we met?)

    You are just being coy with me now. If you were at PGL then you know me.
    So who the hell are you?

    Re: (I'm sorry, have we met?)

    Lots of people were fascinated by nurrie munching at PGL. I don't know who you are and it doesn't matter. My contact details are on the site if you want to email me (user info).
    From: (Anonymous) Date: September 13th, 2005 11:50 pm (UTC) (Link)
    i don't think Matt would announce engagement, it doesn't sound like him. i'm much more willing to believe they're already married - that does sound like him, getting married without anybody knowing about it. very happy for the couple if any of this is true!!!!!!
    From: (Anonymous) Date: September 14th, 2005 12:41 am (UTC) (Link)
    Yeah now you got me thinking they are already married, I want to see this "beautiful big diamond ring" how many carats would Matt go for?

    Lucky Lucy

    Yeah they are already married, but that doesn't stop us putting a hex on her! (keep your shirt on felicity i'm just kidding around)

    Re: Lucky Lucy

    Not funny,Not cool...

    It would be Damon's first marriage.

    operative word in his case is "first" but all the best!
    From: (Anonymous) Date: September 15th, 2005 01:28 am (UTC) (Link)
    I'm happy for him, but I still think that girl should have been me. I still love Matt. Congrats

    private & personal life

    One of the things I like most about Matt is his ability to keep his "real life" REAL! I hope he's already privately married--despite my selfish, broken heart. He is so down-to-earth that he deserves real-life privacy. [I've been to both of his Bourne fund-raiser premieres in Boise, and his personality even supercedes his gorgeous looks!]
    Stay private, Matt & Lucy!
