A generous gift?
  • Here's a quote from an interview with George Clooney that appeared in the UK Mirror on 28 February. Since the author couldn't get the basic details right it's hardly trustworthy, and the timing of the article makes it seem unlikely the potential present was for the engagement in September.

    For now though, the star [George] is turning his attention to other matters - finding the perfect gift for his friend Matt Damon, 35, who has got engaged to his girlfriend, 28-year-old actress Luciana Barroso.

    He said: "I want to buy him a huge yacht. I'm really happy for him that he is settling down. He's a great friend and I guess he will think I'm a pretty good friend too if I buy him a yacht."

  • From the Miami Herald:

    Ben and Matt - just like old times
    Reunited and it feels so good: Ben Affleck and Matt Damon -- plus Damon's expecting significant other, Luciana Barroso, and her daughter - were spotted having lunch at Gloria Estefan's restaurant Larios on Ocean Drive. They parked their SUV in front of Mango's and walked to the restaurant where they were overheard talking shop -- of the cinematic kind, that is. No word on where Mrs. Affleck - aka Jennifer Garner - was.

    Are the ages of Matt and Lucy correct?

    According to IMDB he was born on 8 October 1970, which makes him 35. No idea about his wife Lucy, but her age has been quoted as between 29 and 30 in articles I've read about them.
