Damon has since starred in commercially successful films such as Saving Private Ryan (1998), the Ocean’s trilogy, and the first three films in the Bourne series, while also gaining critical acclaim for his performances in dramas such as Syriana (2005), The Good Shepherd (2006), and The Departed (2006). He garnered a Golden Globe nomination for portraying the title character in The Talented Mr. Ripley (1999) and was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for his role as Francois Pienaar in Invictus (2009) and many more that have soon become one or another’s new favorite flick.
He is one of the top-40 highest grossing Hollywood stars of all time and that’s no surprise. The magic of Matt Damon lies in his strength of character and school boy good looks that make him ever so likeable and great to watch.

With that being said, who else could possibly be our Star of the Week but him. More power to you Matt.
