Matt Damon doesn’t spank his kids, but does he spank his wife?

Here’s a little throwaway article about Matt Damon in People, in which he addresses an upcoming scene in True Grit where his character spanks his onscreen daughter a girl with a switch. Damon said that he never spanks his daughters, and Kaiser and I had a little back and forth about whether Damon would spank us in bed. I’ve done it occasionally, and it can be fun but it’s not my thing really. I’d let Damon do whatever, although he strikes me as somewhat vanilla in bed. Like he’s not into kinky stuff but still knows how to have a good time. You know, I blame Kaiser for getting me to think this way. She has corrupted me so much. I now look at men on the street like they’re sex objects (and we have so many hot guys in Berlin – you should visit!) and try to imagine what kind of sex celebrities prefer. I love my job.

Anyway, here’s what Damon told People:

In a key scene in the new Coen Brothers Western True Grit, Damon, playing a boastful Texas Ranger, takes his costar Hailee Steinfeld – who turned 14 last week – over his knee and wallops her with a wooden reed. But that’s a long way from Damon’s real life with his four young daughters.

“I definitely don’t spank ’em,” the star, 40, told PEOPLE at the movie’s New York premiere on Tuesday.

Attending the gala screening with wife Luciana, Damon said he and the filmmakers took precautions to make sure Steinfeld wouldn’t actually get hurt filming the spanking scene.

“It’s a scene in the movie that needs to be there for a whole host of reasons,” he said. “And so, they just put a big pad on Hailee. And we practiced. And I said, ‘Hailee, does that hurt?’ And she said, ‘I can’t even feel it.’ ”

The whole family got to visit Damon on location for the Western, which was shot in New Mexico and Texas and stars Jeff Bridges as U.S. Marshal Reuben J. “Rooster” Cogburn, the role that won John Wayne a Best Actor Oscar in a 1969 screen version. This new take on the tale more closely follows the 1968 novel by Charles Portis. (The singer Glen Campbell played Ranger La Boeuf in the earlier version.)

“They were interested in seeing the horses,” Damon said of the family visit to the set. “So, we got some pictures of them with the horses.”

At home, is it tough to control four young women running roughshod? “Yeah, it’s kind of nuts,” Damon says. “The alarm goes off, and [expletive] starts flying.”

[From People]

I love how he describes his home life “sh*t starts flying.” Lucy is a lucky bitch but I’m sure she puts up with a lot from Damon. He strikes me as argumentative, but that’s probably because he’s so good at playing angry. I bet he spoils his daughters and is a doting pushover dad.

True Grit is out in the US on the 22 of December and is said to be Oscar bait. It would be great if Damon could win another Oscar.

    You might be right about him being vanilla, but it’s impossible to tell from just looking at a guy. Sometimes they can really surprise you…!

  2. Praise St. Angie! says:

    don’t know if this has been mentioned before, but she’s got a little Julia Louis-Dreyfus thing going on. man, she’s got great hair.

    not a western fan per se, but I do want to see this one.

  3. Riley says:

    I don’t like Damon’s overweight, rumpled, professor look. I like him slimmed down in jeans and a baseball cap, thank you.

  4. Roma says:

    @CB: I dated a guy who was born in Berlin and I was forever ruined for sex by how amazing he was! I don’t know if it was just him or all Germans but it was pretty intense. And a little weird. I guess that can be expected from a country known for their p0rn?

  5. normades says:

    Totes not vanilla. He dated Winona Ryder, you know they did some kinky stuff.

  6. filthycute says:

    She looks like Gaga in the face a bit, but I find her to be MUCH cuter than that famewhore clown.

  7. Happymom says:

    I have 4 kids too-and I laughed at his comments about “shit starts flying”-so true! Especially when they’re as young as his girls are.

  8. Celebitchy says:

    Roma I only slept with 1 German dude, my husband, so I can’t speak for all of ’em. They’re kinky though, there are sex shops on like every corner it seems and no one blinks.

  9. rkintn says:

    FTR, the character he spanks in “True Grit” is NOT his character’s daughter.

    I bet Matt is a great dad and husband but I am not diggin’ his recent look either. It reminds me too much of how they portray middle ageish serial killers on “Criminal Minds”.

  10. LittleDeadGirl says:

    CB: Ha ha now THAT is how you get people to come to your country “our men are awesome and into kinky sex …” Sold!

    I can say you’re the only one ruined by Kaiser in the respect you see men as sex objects … I do too now whenever I walk down the street my first thought isn’t “gee is he nice” nope it’s “I wonder if he has a safe word”.

  11. MuñekitA says:

    He’s so damn sexy!! Lucy is in deed a very very VERY Lucky Bi*ch!

    And i bet he’s kind of Kinky!
    Like Samihami said… Sometimes they can really surprise you 😉 and i think Matt is one of those man!

  12. Franny says:

    I think she just needs to stand up straight.

  14. Feebee says:

    You gotta watch the quiet ones, isn’t that the saying?

    I think he’s taking the new look too far. It was cute when he first came out but he’s gone from relaxed to bordering on letting himself go.

  15. DetRiotgirl says:

    He used to be a morning regular at a Starbucks I worked at long ago. He was always super nice to everyone. He even took the time to learn most of the morning crew’s names! My manager loved him so much, she bought him a Christmas present one year. Btw, she was a lesbian. So, that’s saying a lot about how charming he is! Plus, he’s way more handsome in person than in pictures. I’d bet he’s great in bed. I imagine he would be very caring about his partner’s needs. That’s always a good thing.

    You know, he reminds me of something I used to do before the Internet completely replaced magazines in my life. I’ve worked all kinds of service jobs, and later event jobs, here in New York and every once in awhile I see myself (or more often part or myself) in a paparazzi shot in a magazine. I used to cut out the better ones and put them up in different places. At Starbucks, we had a whole cork board of pap shots of Matt Damon and the Olsen twins with various staff in the background.

    But, my fave pap shot ever is of me waiting on Gerard Butler. I originally saw that picture while reading In Touch weekly on the train. I think everyone in that car heard me scream “OMG, that’s MY butt he’s staring at!”. You could only see my back half in the picture. But, I knew it was me. That picture was totally on my fridge for the better part of a year. Haha

  16. LittleDeadGirl says:

    DetRiotGirl: O_O I would not have shared the last part of that on this site … Kaiser will hunt you down and kill you for the fact her man Butler was staring at your butt -lol-

  17. original kate says:

    @ detriotgirl: when kaiser finds out about the butler….

    oooooh, you in danger, girl.

  18. Kaiser says:


    It’s fine. FINE. I know The Butler checks out random asses. And I know that when he sees mine, it will be true love.

    *takes a pill*

  19. Jeri says:

    I can’t wait to see this movie. I like Matt, Jeff and Brolin and Hailee Steinfeld is getting great reviews.

    I bet the girls all have Matt trained, he probably turns to mush when they want anything.

  20. mimi says:

    Damon looks Vanilla but I don’t think he is AT ALL….think about it- this is Luciana’s 3rd or 4th child by him right? He must be hittin it good and hard on a DAILY for her to be glowing year round the way she does and not complaining about being pregnant.

  21. Arvedia says:

    I’ve never seen a photo where Luciana smiles. I mean, really smiles. On the red carpet she always looks like he dragged her with him against her will.

  22. Johnny Depp's Girl says:

    Kaiser, I got your back when that pill wears off!!

    I like Matt’s hair cleaned up and not so grayish. I love the glasses though.

  23. crtb says:

    I don’t know about him but she must be great, wild and kinky for him to marry a bartender.

  24. judyjudy says:

    I love the fact that I have never seen a picture of any of their children.

  25. fizXgirl314 says:

    How does a very famous actor marry a bartender? I mean, wouldn’t every bartender from here to BFE want to marry Matt Damon? What about her stood out for him? I wonder….

  26. Kitty says:

    He’s such a cool guy. I wish I’d seen him when he did theatre in London. I don’t think I’ll get another chance.
