Dad’s evening out! The 50-year-old motion film star took his daughters to the British rocker’s live performance in New York City for a household affair.
He’s not like a daily dad, he’s a cool dad! Matt Damon took his three daughters, Alexia, 22, Isabella, 15, and Stella, 10, out for a Harry Styles live performance on Sunday, October 3 at Madison Square Garden, proving his bona fides as top-of-the-line dads on the town. The Bourne Identity star went informal for the event, carrying a short-sleeved black button down shirt over a white T-shirt, fitted, darkish gray denims, and a black baseball cap.
The three women seemed concert-ready with ’90s-style seems, as two of the daughters sported black Converse sneakers — good for a rock live performance. The women have been additionally accompanied by a household pal carrying a blue New York Giants jersey.
Matt might have been there for his women on Sunday night, however his women have additionally been there for his or her dad. The Stillwater actor discovered himself in some controversy these days, as he shared with The Sunday Times that he had been utilizing the homophobic “f-slur” till his daughters advised him it wasn’t okay. Amid the backlash, Anthony Allen Ramos, a spokesman for GLAAD, mentioned on the time, “There needs to be accountability at a time when anti-LGBTQ slurs remain rampant today and can fuel discrimination and stereotypes, especially when used by those outside of the community to defame or describe LGBTQ people,” per Just Jared.
Matt responded to the outrage by noting that he had by no means used the slur in a demeaning manner and confirmed his solidarity with the LGBTQ+ neighborhood in opposition to any “hostility.”
“I have never called anyone ‘f****t’ in my personal life and this conversation with my daughter was not a personal awakening,” Matt mentioned in a press release. “I do not use slurs of any kind. I have learned that eradicating prejudice requires active movement toward justice rather than finding passive comfort in imagining myself ‘one of the good guys.’ And given that open hostility against the LGBTQ+ community is still not uncommon, I understand why my statement led many to assume the worst. To be as clear as I can be, I stand with the LGBTQ+ community.”
