Hollywood superstar Matt Damon, 49, has decided where he is going to live until quarantine in the States is over. His choice in interesting to say the least.
The famous actor picked the small Irish Seaside Town called Dalkey. Back in March, he came to this cute little town to shoot some scenes for “The Last Duel,” Ridley Scott’s latest movie. However, when the pandemic shut down everything, he decided to stay there until things go back to normal just like the residents.
Damon’s main residence is in Brooklyn, New York, meaning he is quite far from his home. Now in Ireland, his wife Luciana Bozan Barroso and daughters Isabella, 13, Gia, 11, and Stella, 9, keep him company.
