Matt Damon admits he stopped using homophobic ‘F-slur’ just months ago after daughter wrote ‘beautiful treatise’

MATT Damon admitted he stopped using the homophobic "F-slur" just months ago after one of his daughters wrote him a "very long, beautiful treatise."

During an interview with the Sunday Times, Matt confessed: “The word that my daughter calls the ‘f-slur for a homosexual’ was commonly used when I was a kid, with a different application.

“I made a joke, months ago, and got a treatise from my daughter. She left the table. I said, ‘Come on, that’s a joke! I say it in the movie Stuck on You!’

"She went to her room and wrote a very long, beautiful treatise on how that word is dangerous. I said, ‘I retire the f-slur!’ I understood.”

The word is said in the 2003 comedy Stuck on You starring Matt and Greg Kinnear, who played conjoined brothers.


The Oscar winner shares daughters Isabella, 15, Gia, 12, and Stella, 10, with wife Luciana Barroso.

Luciana is also a mom to 22-year-old daughter Alexia Barroso with her ex-husband Arbello.


The actor also told the outlet he is now more aware of what he says, as he makes sure to keep quiet more often than not.

He said: "Twenty years ago, the best way I can put it is that the journalist listened to the music more than the lyrics [of an interview]. Now your lyrics are getting parsed, to pull them out of context and get the best headline possible.

"Everyone needs clicks. Before it didn’t really matter what I said, because it didn’t make the news. But maybe this shift is a good thing. So I shut the f**k up more.”

This is not the first time that the Hollywood star has admitted his daughters keep him in line - earlier this year he revealed Isabella doesn't want to see his 1997 film Good Will Hunting.

He said during an interview with CBS Sunday Morning: "My 15-year-old refuses to see it. She doesn't want to see any movies that I'm in that she thinks might be good. She just likes to give me s**t."

"My daughter said, 'Remember that movie you did, The Wall?' I said, 'It was called The Great Wall,'" Matt recalled of his 2016 film which was a box office bomb.

The 50-year-old added: "She goes, 'Dad, there's nothing great about that movie.' She keeps my feet firmly on the ground."
