Matt Damon makes his first appearance on The Ellen Show today. He talks about hitting the jackpot when he met his wife (about 4:15 into the interview below) and living with four daughters. Damon's new movie 'The Adjustment Bureau' opens this Friday. Ellen had a lot of fun with this Cambridge boy who left the set with a signature pair of Ellen underwear!
Damon also talked about getting older... he likes being 40.... and dropping out of Harvard:
Ellen: You went to college, to Harvard, and you're just short of actually graduating. Do you think you'll go back?
Matt: No, I don't think now.
Ellen: You can get a good job though. Laughs.
Matt: Well, that was always my thing. I was an English major. I felt like I was writing professionally so I didn't need to go back and get my degree. I got a lot out of the experience though. It really was a great experience for me. I spent more than four years there. I'd leave when I would get a job because I was already acting professionally. I feel like I got everything I needed to get from that experience.
Ellen: It's nice to say that you went to Harvard. Doesn't matter if you graduated.
Matt: Well, actually, compared to some of the other drop outs like Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg, I've got some work to do.
Ellen: You're a slacker. Matt: Exactly. Laughs
