"I can't, I'm not going anywhere": Matt Damon's Lies Exposed By Luciana Barroso Who Rejected His Request To Go Out With Him On Their First Meeting

Known for his outstanding performances throughout the years in numerous critically and commercially successful films, Matt Damon lives the life of a true Hollywood superstar filled with fame and fortune. This recognition is something of a blessing and a curse since he has constantly been on guard to keep his private life private, something that he’s managed to do for a long time.

Along with his private life, he’s also famous for being one of the few stars in the industry who has maintained a stable and healthy relationship throughout the years with his wife Luciana Barroso and has managed to raise a family together. And while he may have a very romantic recollection of his first encounter with his wife, Barroso has a whole different story in her head.

Known for his award-winning performances in numerous films, including Oscar-winner Good Will Hunting, Matt Damon has an illustrious professional career. But more than that, he’s one of those rare Hollywood mega stars that has never reported having any issues in his married life. He has always claimed that he married his wife Luciana Barroso because he knew instantly that they were meant to be, which has held. But on the other hand, Barroso has more details to share that might put a dent in Damon’s perfect story.

In a past interview, Barroso, who wasn’t connected to the entertainment industry before her marriage, revealed that during the shooting of his film Stuck On You, Damon was at a bar when he was approached by a large number of fans for autographs and pictures. To escape their overwhelming love, he hid behind the counter. Here, Barroso was a bartender for the night, who was asked by the Jason Bourne star to be allowed to be there. She further recalled, saying:

“He had started getting recognized and asked for pictures and autographs, and then it got kind of aggressive because people are drinking and stuff, and so he came and hid behind my bar… (wanting to) just hung out back there and have a drink. He says, ‘oh I saw you and I really wanted to talk to you’. So I put him to work with me! I said, ‘You know, if you’re going to be back here, you can’t just be standing there!’ He had trained as a bartender for a film years before, so he started making drinks. And he made me a ton of money in tips that night. We definitely had a connection right away, it was so easy to talk to each other, we were very comfortable, and by the end of the night he invited me to go out with his friends. But I was like: ‘I can’t, I have a four-year-old daughter, I’m not going anywhere,’  He said ‘I love that you’re a mom and that’s your priority.’ Some guys might have been different, they might think it’s complicated, but for him it wasn’t.”

While he might’ve faced rejection initially due to circumstances, their relationship blossomed at the end, and the rest is history.

While the film might’ve been a box office bomb, at the end of the day, this film was the reason why Matt Damon found the love of his life.

Since both had done a ‘one man’ show in the past, Walt decides one day that he wants to pursue acting and to honor his brother’s wish and their childhood pact, both decide to head to Los Angles to make their dreams come true.
