The Martian star has recently revealed how he, his wife, and their 4 children are quarantining… And boy, does it put our isolation efforts to shame.

Over the years, the Massachusetts-born Damon has grown to become one of Hollywood’s most celebrated actors.

The actor first rose to fame with the 1977 blockbuster, Good Will Hunting.

Alongside his friend and costar, Ben Affleck, Damon both wrote and starred in the movie, which tells the tale of an unrecognized genius who, as part of a deferred prosecution agreement, becomes a client of a therapist and studies advanced mathematics with a renowned professor.

And Damon and Affleck went on to win an original screenplay Oscar for their debut project.

This was a huge achievement for the life-long friends…

Damon and Affleck met at the age of ten when they lived a couple of blocks away from one another. They played baseball and Dungeons and Dragons, and, as adults, went on to pursue a career in acting together.  

And, following on from his Good Will Hunting success…

Damon went on to star in a number of other major blockbusters, such as Saving Private Ryan, The Talented Mr. Ripley, and The Bourne Identity franchise.

Damon was the star in hugely popular movies such as Martian and The Great Wall.

Damon has truly conquered the Hollywood game… And now, he’s currently conquering the self-isolation game.

And, let’s just say, he has pulled out all the stops to make this extra time with his family truly special.

The forty-nine-year-old actor prides himself on being a good dad to his 4 daughters with wife, Luciana Barosso.

But the actor took the then-4-year-old is as his own, and he still remains as her primary father-figure to this day.

Isabella, Gia Zavala, and Stella.

It only seemed right that Matt used it as an opportunity to get some much-needed quality time with his wife and daughters.

And it wasn’t what anyone was expecting.

The Damon’s have been self-isolating in the most unlikely of places…

A small town in rural Ireland.

But, as this Twitter user pointed out, the Irish countryside is breathtaking, and actually makes for the perfect rural retreat.

In an interview on the Irish radio show, Fully Charged, Damon revealed that he and his family have been staying in a house in Dalkey, a suburb just outside of Dublin, and he had many warm words about the small town.

“Oh, it’s incredible. This is one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been.”

The Damons are loving lockdown life.

He continued: “Obviously what’s going on in the world is horrible, but for my family it timed out right. It feels a little like a fairytale here, it’s gorgeous.”

But for others, it hasn’t been so easy. Keep scrolling to read about the holocaust survivor who slammed all those complaining about their lockdown…
