Matt Damon and wife Lucy at the Promised Land premiere: cute couple or too formal?

These are photos of Matt Damon, his wife Luciana, and Matt’s co-star and co-screenwriter, John Krasinski, at the premiere of Promised Land in New York last night. You know I love Matt Damon, and I originally told Kaiser she could cover this until I saw video of Damon on Letterman, got all swoony and told her “he’s mine!” That may sound ridiculous, but maybe you’ll understand if you see the clip. Damon was doing his Matthew McConaughey impression, at Letterman’s request, and talking up his former roommate McConaughey’s chances at earning an Oscar for Magic Mike. It was nice to see and reminded me why I love Damon. You can watch it here.

In terms of Lucy’s dress, it’s a one-shoulder silk number that has a bizarre cut with a draped panel running across the front. We don’t have a designer ID on this but Kaiser is telling me it looks like Gucci. Lucy often shows a lot of cleavage, so this is a change for her I guess. It’s a striking dress and I love the pop of color, but the cut seems off to me somehow. It looks like she could be hiding a baby bump until you see the dress from the side. Still, she looks amazing and I love her hair and makeup. Also, I love Matt Damon always and forever but he needs to ditch the transitions lenses at night.

Promised Land is out in wide release on January 4, and will be in limited release on December 28, just in time for awards season! It’s about a representative from a natural gas company (Damon) who comes to a small town to convince the locals to let his company drill. He meets some opposition from a farmer turned environmentalist whose land was destroyed by fracking (Krasinski). You can see the trailer here. It looks so good! The film also stars Rosemarie Dewitt and Frances McDormand.

Matt Damon with director Gus Van Sant (Good Will Hunting). I can’t wait to see this movie!

Did you know Rosemarie Dewitt was married to Ron Livingston? I didn’t, they’re a cute couple too! (They’ve been married since ’09 and don’t have any kids.)

    Good to see Matt’s hair growing in nicely from his recent “Elysium” re-shoots. I really hate that they pushed the film’s opening from March to August, but I hope it’s a HUGE blockbuster for Matty. He needs one. Then he can (finally) say “Jason who?” :)

    I love Lucy’s dress!

    i dont know where to begin..What a fugly dress, and the glasses,and the hair on Matt?Shave it all of dear.And Miss: if you dont know what to wear:a pair of jeans and a nice blazer always does the trick.With so much money you look INDEED very basic.

    Isn’t it the Berger guy from Sex and The City? Boy his character made want to punch him!

    Damon is a lucky dude, Luciana is absolutely beautiful… Plus low key.

    I love Matt Damon! I think he’s a wonderful actor and has such a great personality. I don’t like the dress, but to each his own. I must say he was on GMA yesterday with that hair and I didn’t know who he was! I thout he was a mch older guy. I know he’ll be glad when it grows back in.

    There’s Oscar buzz surrounding Magic Mike? Really?

  6. dorothy says:

    Look, after seeing daily pictures of Kim Kardashian in her Ace Bandage dresses; it’s nice to see a couple APPROPRIATELY dressed.

    Those grandpa spectacles are just gawd awful.

    And the satin sack emphasizes all the wrong things. And gets wrinkly in nanoseconds.

  8. Starlight says:

    Matt is getting older and uglier while his wife stays the same. Unlike Ben, he is getting better so is his wife.

  9. Starlight says:

    His wife is very lovely in that red dress. She knows how to dress. It does not have to be expensive. You just have to know how to dress.

    Lucy is so pretty! Love Matt Damon. Hands down one of my favs out of anyone. The movie looks great, I didn’t know John was a writer as well

  11. Jess says:

    I hate to criticize her because she’s not in the public eye and not a celebrity, but that dress is awful. It’s just plain ugly. Yikes.

  12. stinkyman says:

    Other than quirky expressions on Matt that the camera caught with its zillion shots they look great. The dress is lovely on the wife.

  13. Hannah says:

    I believe Rosemarie is pregnant, though. I remember reading rumours to that effect and she does look a bit bumpy in that last picture.

  14. KellyinSeattle says:

    She has beautiful hair, but the dress looks like “awful bridesmaids’ material”…at least she’s demure. Matt looks really old. I like Luciana’s personality. And she isn’t a famehore or I doubt using Matt.

  15. lucy2 says:

    Not crazy about the dress but it’s not bad. I like how she’s stayed so low key despite being married to a huge star. No reality shows for her!

  16. Suzy from Ontario says:

    Don’t like that fuscia dress on Matt’s life. The shoulder thing is too distracting for me. I think she is pretty and could look so much better in something more form-fitting. Matt doesn’t look his best.

    Great, another movie that makes oil companies the bad guy. How very original. Critics will love it and crowds will stay away. How I love a movie that is designed, not to entertain, but to teach all the little people what they ought to think.

      @RobN, who wrote: “Great, another movie that makes oil companies the bad guy. How very original. Critics will love it and crowds will stay away. How I love a movie that is designed, not to entertain, but to teach all the little people what they ought to think.”

      (Blinks) Doesn’t is say ‘natural gas company’ above? Where did you get ‘oil company’ from?

    I didn’t know Ron Livingston and Rosemarie DeWitt were married, either! That makes sense. Both intelligent, funny people. I’m looking forward to checking out this movie. It won’t be in a theater, though. Much as I am fond of both John Krasinski and Matt Damon, it looks like a Sunday afternoon rental to me.

  19. j.eyre says:

    I adore Matt Damon too. He joins Chris Hemsworth in the “Love to look at, read about, wanna meet but not hit” list. His wife is gorgeous and I kind of like the dress. I couldn’t wear it but she looks good.

    OK – honest opinions – do I need to see this Magic Mike? I wrote it off but is it worth it?

  20. Angela says:

    Cute Couple! This is how Chris & Minka/ Ryan & Evan will be in a future. Love them ;)

  21. Issa says:

    Think she is a beautiful woman, they seem like a happy couple. She looks natural, not plastic, peeled or toxed. The dress fits her style, simple and pretty. Not something I would wear but it looks lovely on her.
