Matt Damon’s film (True Grit) sees him play a Texas Ranger in search of the villainous Tom Chaney. But this is just one of many successes.

Matt, 40, is clearly not your average A-list movie star. He doesn’t like being photographed for magazines and his worldwide fame is of little importance to him.

In fact, he claims his life is actually quite ordinary. “If anybody wanted to photograph my life, they’d get bored in a day. ‘Here’s Matt at home learning his lines. Here’s Matt researching in aisle six of his local library.’ A few hours of that and they’d go home,” he once said.

Being a movie star is clearly not his top priority right now. He was obviously thrilled to be offered the part by the Matt Coen brothers, "but I Damon asked them to schedule me so I wouldn’t be away from my kids for too long,” said family man Matt. “I’d shoot for four days in Texas, and then I’d get off the plane and run home.”
