Matt never shies away from an opportunity to talk about his family. He once revealed that his daughter Isabella does not like to watch his moves, especially the ones with great reviews.

She would rather watch his movies with many negative reviews because she likes to give him a hard time when he does not give his best in his work.

Despite winning several awards for his writing and starring in "Good Will Hunting," Isabella has refused to watch the movie that eventually brought overnight success for her father.

The 2016 film "The Great Wall" is Isabella's least favorite film in which her father has appeared. The actor revealed that when she talks about the movie, she would instead call it "The Wall."

When he tried to correct her and give her the proper name for the movie, she said:

"Dad, there's nothing great about that movie."

Matt believes Isabella is one of the funniest people he knows. She is playfully hard on him, and he said her hardness keeps his feet firmly on the ground.

She Has an Impact on Her Father

In August 2021, "The Bourne Ultimatum" star revealed that his daughter greatly influenced his life. The actor said he was always using a homophobic slur, and Isabella did not find it funny.

He used the slur once at the family's dinner table, and she left the table. The actor tried to tell her it was a joke, but as she went to her room, Isabella wrote him what he called a "beautiful treatise."

Even though it was a common slur when he was a child, it had a different application than it does now. The actor's daughter also explained the dangers of using the word in today's world.

Isabella's parents met in 2003 when he was filming "Stuck On You," and she worked as a bartender in South Beach, Miami. While talking about how they met, Matt Damon said it was like hitting the jackpot.

Even though they have agreed on the day they met, the couple has different versions of the circumstances that led to their meeting. According to the actor, when he saw her across the room, a light was on her.

However, Isabella's mother revealed that the actor was hiding behind her bar after numerous fans asked him for pictures and autographs.

Before the night was over, Isabella's father made drinks at the bar and earned a lot of tips. He invited her on a date, and she declined because she had to care for her four-year-old daughter.
