Matt Damon, 52, brought his whole family to the Air red carpet premiere in Los Angeles on March 27. Matt, who stars in the film directed by his BFF Ben Affleck, posed with his wife Luciana Barroso, 46, and their daughters Isabella, 16, Gia, 14, and Stella, 12, at the event. Matt’s daughters rarely attend Hollywood events, but they made an exception to celebrate their dad’s new movie that is already receiving praise from critics.
Matt looked so handsome at the Air premiere. He wore a black suit with no tie that color-coordinated with his wife Luciana’s gorgeous black dress. The couple’s three children looked fabulous, as well, in their mix of black and white outfits. The happy family of five took a group photo together where Matt had the biggest smile on his face. Matt and Luciana also took romantic photos together just the two of them.
In Air, Matt plays Nike exec Sonny Vaccaro, who signed Michael Jordan to the company to create the Air Jordan sneaker brand. Matt and Ben, 50, produced the film together through their new production company, Artists Equity. Also at the premiere was the film’s stars Viola Davis, Chris Tucker, Jason Bateman, and Marlon Wayans. Ben’s wife Jennifer Lopez was there, as well, to support her husband.
Matt spoke to The Hollywood Reporter on the red carpet and revealed why he’s “so fond” of Sonny, who he met before filming began. “He’s such a sweet, nice person,” Matt said. “Playing that person is really easy, because I really wanna do justice to that soul and that spirit. That makes it really easy, when you like the person that much.” Air debuts in theaters April 5.
