Brad Pitt has said himself that he has a pretty awesome life - but there is one thing Matt Damon has that Pitt longs for: privacy.
Although both Pitt and Damon are A-list stars with a capital "A," only one of them is partnered to a woman who is equally famous. For Damon, the decision to marry a "civilian," as he puts it in the August issue of Esquire magazine, has helped him to escape the fame machine and its trappings.
"If you can control the celebrity side of celebrity, then it's worth it," Damon tells the magazine. "I look at Brad - and I have for years - and when I'm with him I see the intensity of that other side of it. And the paparazzi and the insane level of aggression they have and their willingness to break the law and invade his space - well, I wonder about that trade."
Damon, who has four kids with wife Luciana Barroso, can recall once telling Pitt that he walks his kids to school. Upon hearing that as a dad of six, Pitt's face "just fell."
"He was very kind, but he was like, 'You bastard.' Because he should be able to do that, too," Damon said. "And he can't."
That freedom to dodge hordes of paparazzi is the result of getting "lucky," Damon went on. "I fell in love with a civilian. Not an actress and not a famous actress, at that. Because then the attention doesn't double - it grows exponentially. Because then suddenly everybody wants to be in your bedroom."
Damon and his family also have the advantage of being in New York rather than in Los Angeles, but that's changing, Esquire reports. The family's reportedly found a new home on the same street as Damon's bud and colleague, Ben Affleck, yet Damon's thinking that his middle-of-the-road existence shouldn't warrant too much attention.
"I don't really give them anything. If I'm not jumping up and down on a bar, or lighting something on fire, or cheating on my wife, there's not really any story to tell," the 42-year-old star said. "They can try to stake me out, but they're always going to get the same story - middle-aged married guy with four kids. So as long as that narrative doesn't change too much, there's no appetite for it."
