Matt Damon as Bourne.

About Matt Damon (1970 –)

Matt Damon was born on October 8, 1970 in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Just 12 credits short of graduating to start his acting career, Matt dropped out of Harvard. He would appear that year in 1988's MYSTIC PIZZA, landing a one-line part for his first film role.

The following year Matt was an extra for the classic FIELD OF DREAMS (1989). During the shoot, Matt jumped on to Boston's Fenway Park to take some blades of grass for his father, an avid baseball fan.

In 1996 Damon would star in the blockbuster COURAGE UNDER FIRE after working diligently to shed 40 pounds for his role. The following year Damon would catapult to star status with his co-star (and co-screenwriter) Ben Affleck in GOOD WILL HUNTING (1997).

An avid poker fan, Damon played in a $10,000 buy-in Texas Hold 'Em tournament at the 1998 World Series of Poker in Las Vegas; lost during the first day of play. That same year, Damon's love of the cards landed him a role in the film ROUNDERS.

Matt has appeared on Jay Leno's "The Tonight Show" two times thus far. His first appearance was to promote the 2002 blockbuster, THE BOURNE IDENTITY. He would reappear in 2004 to promote the sequel, THE BOURNE SUPREMACY. For fun, Damon started a bowling league in Berlin during the shooting of SUPREMACY.

Matt has starred in 7 movies where the title contains some part of his character's name: GOOD WILL HUNTING (1997), SAVING PRIVATE RYAN (1998), THE TALENTED MR. RIPLEY (1999), GERRY (2002), SPIRIT: STALLION OF THE CIMARRON (2002), THE BOURNE IDENTITY (2002), and THE BOURNE SUPREMACY (2004).

Matt was chosen by People Magazine as one of the 50 most beautiful people in the world in 1998. In June, 2002 Matt was named as one of E!'s "25 Most Eligible Bachelors".

Matt's uncle, George Brunstad, swam the English Channel on 29 August 2004 at the age of 70. He completed the 21 mile swim in 15 hours and 59 minutes, making him the new world record holder as the oldest person to complete the swim. In the process Mr. Brunstad raised $12,000 for a Haitian children's group.

Damon visited a hypnotist in LA to quit smoking.
