Matt Damon's father dies of most cancers aged 74

25 December 2017

Matt Damon's father, Kent Damon, has died at the age of 74 after a long battle with cancer.

Kent Damon passed away on December 14, the Jason Bourne actor's publicist told the Boston Globe. While the A-list ladies featured in the film's first full trailer have fans seriously excited, they're not feeling the love for one cast member in particular: Matt Damon.

'We're in this watershed moment, and it's great, but I think one thing that's not being talked about is there are a whole s**tload of guys - the preponderance of men I've worked with - who don't do this kind of thing and whose lives aren't going to be affected, ' Damon told Business Insider while promoting the science-fiction film. Damon canceled an appearance at the Britannia Awards, citing a "family emergency". "We'll take any prayers you got, so throw 'em up there", he said.

The Good Will Hunting star had attended benefits for the Massachusetts General Hospital's Cancer Center in Boston where the actor told WCVB-TV that his father was doing good while the cancer is incurable.

'Because a handful of Twitter users don't like it, the rest of us have to pretend that Matt Damon is somehow guilty of something very bad, ' Carlson said on his show.

"I don't do that, and most of the people I know don't do that", he added.

And Matt said in a video message: 'Hello and thank you to everyone at BAFTA. "I personally would have preferred if they had an Ethics Committee investigation, you know what I mean?" he said.

Alyssa Milano also clapped back on Twitter, writing, "I have been a victim of each component of the sexual assault spectrum of which you speak".

Turns out Matt Damon didn't skip the "Downsizing" premiere in fear of answering more questions about sexual harassment.

Harvard-educated Damon, 47, is the father of four daughters, including a child from a previous relationship of his wife.
