Hollywood star Matt Damon has revealed that his eldest daughter Alexis had contracted coronavirus while he was stuck in Ireland.
The actor remains to be quarantine with his family in the small town of Dalkey, Ireland, where he was shooting for a movie whose production was halted due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Making a surprising appearance on a local radio show, SPIN 1038 Fully Charged, he revealed how Alexis was diagnosed with coronavirus early on. Damon also shared how he and his family ended up getting quarantined in Ireland.
I’m in the middle of a movie that I shot the first half in France and we were moving to Ireland and kind of right when we arrived in Ireland, the movie was shut down…Our oldest daughter is in college. Obviously that’s been shut down, but she’s in New York City. She had COVID really early on along with her roommates and got through it fine.- Matt Damon
For the uninitiated, Alexis is the actor’s stepdaughter from his wife Luciana Bozan Barroso’s previous marriage. However, Damon considers her as his own.
I shouldn’t say our whole family’s together. Of our four kids we’ve got the three younger ones and our oldest one, we’ll reunite with her at the end of the month. But everybody’s OK.- Matt Damon
