Being an A-Lister in an industry like Hollywood comes with certain sacrifices, which includes giving up your privacy, however, for Matt Damon, who doesn’t shy away from the camera both on film and in real life, he has managed to keep his marital life quiet. In fact, there is more information about his friendship with fellow A-Lister, Ben Affleck than we know about his wife, Luciana Barroso.
While we certainly wouldn’t declare that there is a correlation between the high privacy that exists in Matt Damon’s marital life with Luciana Barroso and the length of their union which is in its thirteenth year, there is no denying the fact that Hollywood stars who have less famous partners tend to have a longer relationship. Regardless, we have been able to gather a few information about the wife of the mortal enemy of Jimmy Kimmel, Matt Damon.
Luciana Barroso’s Biography
As mentioned earlier, Luciana has gone to great lengths to keep herself out of the spotlight her husband lives in. One could consider it the result of the simple life she had before she met Matt Damon in a Miami bar in 2003 when she never expected to fall in love and be married to one of the most famous men on earth.
Luciana Barroso was born in Argentina to an Insurance agent father and a housekeeper mother in Salta, Argentina on the 31st of July, 1976. Shortly after her birth, her parents got divorced in what is now a common occurrence in modern marriages. She was eventually raised by her grandparents who helped give her a semblance of a normal childhood. Although she was raised in Argentina, Luciana is also very versed in Italian culture due to it being the home country of her grandparents.
As part of the theme of secrecy around her life, little is known about the education history of Luciana other than her passion for the arts as a young woman. Following this passion, she applied to study Arts at a local college which she eventually graduated from with a degree. Despite the fact she studied art, she ended up as an air hostess, we assume it was to make ends meet.
Is she Married? – Ex-husband
The specific timing of her move to America is unknown but by the time she met Matt Damon in a bar in Miami while he was filming Stuck on You, she had been married and divorced from Arbello Barroso. When exactly they got married is also unknown but the couple got divorced in 2004, one year before Matt Damon. Luciana had a child with Barroso in 1999, a daughter they named Alexia Barroso.
Luciana Barroso’s reason for fame came on a lovely evening in 2003 when Matt Damon walked in while she was on duty as a bartender. Like a scene out of a Hallway channel film, the couple found an instant connection which led them to marriage and three children.
Even though Luciana Barroso’s marriage with her first husband Arbello Barroso ended in divorce, the couple had a child, Alexia which somewhat ensured that it wasn’t a bitter divorce. The two couple have been able to maintain a cordial relationship since their separation especially for the sake of their kid.
Luciana Barroso married her current husband, Matt Damon on the 9th of December, 2005 after getting engaged in September 2005. The couple looking to keep their wedding out of the spotlight got married in a civil ceremony in the New York City Hall where only a few close friends were present. The couple renewed their vows and had a lavish wedding in April 2013 in Saint Lucia where all industry friends and paparazzi were present.
Family & Children
Luciana Barroso has so far simply dedicated herself to raising their children. Her family, which consists of her first child, Alexia has grown into four since she got married to Matt Damon. The couple has three more daughters – Isabella Damon, Stella Damon, and Gia Zavala Damon. Alexia was born in 1999, and the rest were born in 2006, 2010 and 2008 respectively. Together with her husband, they have a two-week rule which ensures that Matt spends his time with his family despite his busy schedule as an A-List actor. The couple resides in Pacific Palisades, Los Angeles.
