Matt Damon’s Daughter Fell Asleep In Ford V Ferrari…. Twice



A huge part of what makes the 24 Hours of Le Mans so difficult is that both the cars and the people driving them must last an entire day. For the drivers, the endurance race is an exhausting affair, requiring them to stay awake behind the wheel despite having very little time to rest. It turns out that the Le Mans-centered Ford v Ferrari also proved to be an endurance test for Matt Damon’s daughter, who fell asleep during the movie… twice. The actor recalled:

Okay, so Matt Damon’s daughter Stella isn’t cut out for the 24 Hours of Le Mans just yet. The 9-year-old couldn’t quite make it through the two-and-a-half hours of Ford v Ferrari without a couple of pit stops in dreamland. But as anyone who has seen the movie knows, her naps were not in any way an indictment of the entertainment value of the film and were in fact completely understandable.

Matt Damon’s daughter Stella is only 9-years-old, and Ford v Ferrari isn’t exactly a short movie for a kid to sit through. In addition, Stella first saw Ford v Ferrari, in which her dad plays the legendary Carroll Shelby, at the movie’s the Los Angeles world premiere. It was the first time Matt Damon had ever taken his wife and four daughters all to one of his films. And as Matt Damon told USA Today, it was past her bedtime when they saw it.

The combined soporific properties of a long film and a late start time stacked the odds against Stella Damon, just as the odds were stacked against Ford when it took on Ferrari at Le Mans. But despite falling short and succumbing to sleep, she still put up a valiant effort, only falling asleep twice and according to her, only for 10 seconds each time.

That 10-second figure sounds like, in classic kid fashion, Matt Damon’s daughter might be rounding down in a major way, but it’s still sweet. It sounds like she wanted to confess that she did fall asleep, but also wanted her dad to know that she saw most of his movie so that he wouldn’t think she dozed off because she was bored or didn’t like it.

Matt Damon’s daughter apparently found the movie really exciting, and while I don’t know how interested she was in the car development aspects of the story (unless she has serious automotive interests like Ken Mile’s son in the film played by Noah Jupe), there is no arguing that the racing sequences in Ford v Ferrari should be exciting to anyone with a pulse, young or old.

Stella Damon wasn’t the only one who liked Ford v Ferrari. The audience response was glowing with the James Mangold film earning a coveted A+ CinemaScore to go along with its widespread critical acclaim. It also won the weekend with an over $31 million debut.

Troian Bellisario on “PLL,” “Where’d You Go Bernadette,” and Her Daughter, Aurora


The timing of Troian Bellisario’s 2019 film Where’d You Go, Bernadette couldn’t have been more appropriate.

She acted in the film alongside star Cate Blanchett, who played the title character. Troian took on the role of a marine biologist, named Becky, who helps Bernadette on her journey of self-discovery. But watching the completed project, Troian says, the movie took on a whole new meaning.

“While the film was being edited and finalized, I got pregnant, and then had a daughter,” Troian tells Teen Vogue about the timing of Where’d You Go, Bernadette, which heads to DVD and Blu-ray on November 26, and is available now on digital. “So I got to see this film for the first time in its final form in a totally different context. Watching the mother-daughter relationship between Bee and Bernadette… so often [in movies] you see a mother and daughter at odds and really pushing against each other. I love the way that [instead] they have true lifelong friendship and support for each other. I hope for a relationship like that with my daughter.”

Recently, Troian announced her daughter’s name, Aurora, on Instagram to much fanfare. (And yes, she knows it starts with the letter “A,” like a certain villainous set of characters on Pretty Little Liars, the show she starred in for seven seasons as Spencer Hastings.) In addition to promoting Where’d You Go, Bernadette and taking care of Aurora, with husband Patrick J. Adams, she’s also working on new writing projects and taking on more post-PLL acting roles.

During an interview with Teen Vogue, Troian opened up about what it was like working with Cate, her reflections on PLL, how it’s totally not a conspiracy that she and PLL costar Shay Mitchell now have daughters with “A” names, and more.

Teen Vogue: What was the set like on Where’d You Go, Bernadette? Did you have any favorite moments working with Cate?

TB: Oh, my God, yeah. The rehearsal process was really incredible just because I’ve always, particularly as an actress in theater, looked up to her. So to watch her in her rehearsal process was really fantastic. To see her curiosity and her sense of play was really inspiring to me. And then, when we were shooting in a world heritage site called the Ilulissat Glacier, we had to stop the scene sometimes because a gray whale would come through in between the camera and us on kayaks. So in all of that natural beauty, sitting there trying to do a scene and remember lines across from Cate Blanchett, and then they have to hold for a whale, it was overwhelming on a lot of different levels.

TV: I really enjoyed your 2017 movie Feed, which you wrote and starred in with Tom Felton. Are you doing any more writing, or work on the development side of the industry?

TB: It’s been on my mind a lot recently, and I have been writing a little bit. I wrote a pilot with a friend and we’re trying to put that together now. So hopefully that will get to move forward. And I have, I think right now it’s a play, but I don’t know what it’s going to be ultimately that I’m working on. Writing is very important to me. It’s definitely a love-hate relationship. Because I find that it’s very lonely and it’s very self-driven, and it’s so much easier when the incoming call comes and they’re just like, “Hey, we need you to do this job. Would you come do this?” And you’re like, “Yes, totally, let’s do this!” As opposed to, okay, I have to make time to sit down on my computer and really figure this out. And nobody is pushing me. It’s not like anybody’s like, “Hey, I’d love to see that thing you’re working on.”
