Hollywood actor Matt Damon, 50, has revealed that his 15-year-old daughter Isabella refuses to watch 1997 film Good Will Hunting, which sees her dad star alongside Ben Affleck and the late Robin Williams in the American drama. Appearing on CBS Sunday Morning to promote his new film Stillwater, the award-winning actor, who plays main character Will Hunting, said that one of his daughters with wife Luciana Barroso likes to give him “s***” about the movies he’s been in to keep him down to earth.
She just likes to give me s***
When asked whether he was still connected to Good Will Hunting by his fanbase, Matt replied that he’s less frequently associated with the 90’s film.
The star replied: “Sure, fewer and fewer, younger people don’t know it as much.”
The award-winning actor went on to reveal that one person who flat out refuses to watch her father star in the classic is one of his daughters, Isabella.
He said: “My 15-year-old refuses to see it; she doesn’t want to see any movies that I’m in that she thinks might be good.”

Also in the interview, the star explained that he likes to keep his family as close as possible despite his hectic filming schedule.
Matt shared that his family are never apart for more than two weeks at a time, but recently broke the rule to film new movie Stillwater.
“Are you going to keep the two-week rule?”, Matt was asked.
He replied: “Yes, it’s been firmly reestablished and it’s off the table, we’re never breaking it again.”
Matt stars alongside Call My Agent star Camille Cottin and Abigail Breslin in the 2021 film which is loosely based on the story of Amanda Knox.
Stillwater is released in cinemas nationwide on Friday August 6th.
