Inside Luciana Barroso and Matt Damon’s Marriage And How They Met

Matt Damon is no small personality in Hollywood. Since he came into the glamorous industry thirty years ago, he has worked in various capacities as an actor, a film producer and screenwriter all rolled into one. Matt’s charisma and fame have been such that he is ranked among Forbes Magazine’s most bankable stars of all time. Besides that, he has been the receiver of several accolades including an Academy and two Golden Globe awards. Yet, he is one of the few Hollywood personalities who has been able to maintain a stable family life for as long as a decade. Luciana Barroso and Matt Damon have been an example to many upcoming actors through their marriage. But who is Luciana Barroso and what is the secret of their unusually long marital stability? Let’s give you the details.

How Did Luciana Barroso and Matt Damon Meet?

Not a few people consider Luciana Barroso and Matt Damon an unusually inspiring Hollywood couple. It is as a result of their long marital stability which is nearly unprecedented in the showbiz sphere. But, it is also a result of how the relationship itself came into existence. In fact, Matt Damon attributes their marital success to how they met in the first place.

It seems the mood on that beautiful evening was just right for something great to start. Matt Damon has told the story several times, of how he was in Miami shooting a movie (Good Will Hunting) which he wrote the screenplay himself. He recounts how he never planned to be in Miami that day as the movie shoot had been scheduled for Hawaii instead but somehow, it was taken to Miami. While Matt and a few guys were having a beer at a bar, he saw Luciana who was a bartender and she caught his attention. Lucianna was among a crowd but Matt singled her out and at that moment, nobody else existed.

Listening to Matt Damon tell the story, it is obvious he believes this to be the function of luck. That’s okay. But then, it could have been the function of fate. Matt Damon was on the brink of stardom around that period – 2003. His acting career began almost a decade earlier and he must have made several failed attempts at a big break which finally paid off for him. At the time of meeting Luciana, he was finally at a point of breakthrough. He had been laughing from the comedy episodes he crafted out by himself and was drinking beer too when his eyes rested upon Luciana. It could be that she resembles Matt’s mom or sister or even his granny, who knows? All we know is that his spirit found Luciana Barroso in a way it never did anyone else.

Their Marriage So Far

Currently, the love story of Luciana Barroso and Matt Damon is used as a reference to encourage all seekers of perfect romance. The circumstances surrounding how their paths crossed is so much like what you might have as a movie storyline. Except that, this time, it is the raw reality. Matt already had a glittering Hollywood career at the time he met his wife and he didn’t mind that she was just a bartender.

Matt Damon met Luciana Barroso in 2003 and they wedded two years later. Luciana had been married before to a fellow Argentine named Arbello Barroso. She had a child from that marriage, a daughter named Alexia. But all of these didn’t matter to Matt Damon who accepted Luciana, her daughter and all her past with pure unquestioning love.

What is even more enigmatic is how Luciana Barroso and Matt Damon have managed to keep a low profile all these years amid all temptation to flaunt their marriage on the Hollywood spotlight. For this, Matt Damon gives credit to his wife.
