Matt Damon and Luciana Barroso were photographed holding hands as they left the Hermes show during New York Fashion Week on Thursday.
The Oppenheimer actor, 52, was dressed quite casually in a white t-shirt, gray trousers and white trainers.
The Bourne Identity star – who, along with Ben Affleck, offered to pay for Jimmy Kimmel’s high-profile staff – wore his hair cropped short and he rocked a goatee as he smiled broadly.
The Oscar winner’s stunning wife, 47, looked sensational in a metallic gray dress and black pumps.
Luciana’s dress had long sleeves and fell just above her ankles. She had her raven hair pulled back in an updo and her makeup emphasized the natural glow of her olive skin.
Old couple: Matt Damon and Luciana Barroso were photographed holding hands as they left the Hermes show at New York Fashion Week on Thursday
The elderly couple appeared to be laughing as they left the fashion show.
Matt met Isabella in 2003 at the bar in Miami, where she was bartending while he was filming Stuck on You.
The Boston native and the beautiful Argentinian hit it off immediately and got married two years later in 2005.
They welcomed daughters Isabella, 17, Gia, 15, and Stella, 13. Damon is also stepfather to Alexia Barroso, 25, Luciana’s daughter from her previous marriage. He also considers Alexia his daughter.
The mother of four keeps a low profile and doesn’t have social media, but she did grant a rare interview Vogue Australia in 2018 and opened up about the night she met the Good Will Hunting star.
“I was working as a bartender in South Beach (Miami) and he was shooting a movie there and the crew ended up in the bar on a Saturday night…Matt’s story is that he saw me across the room and there was a light shone on me. And I said, “Yes, it was a nightclub — there were lights everywhere,” she recalled, laughing.
“But he started getting recognized and asking for pictures and autographs, and then it got a little aggressive because people were drinking and stuff, and so he came and hid behind my bar… (just wanted to) hang out there and have a drink. drink. He says, “Oh, I saw you and I really wanted to talk to you.”

‘So I put him to work for me! I said, “You know, if you come back here, you can’t just stand there!” He had trained as a bartender for a film years earlier, so he started making drinks.
‘And he made me a lot of money that night in tips, because of course everyone wanted to go to him. So it was a very nice evening and 15 years later we are here!’
She went on to explain that Matt invited her to go out with him and his friends after she finished work, but she couldn’t because she was raising Alexia, who was four at the time, as a single mother.
She told him, ‘I can’t, I have a four-year-old daughter, I’m not going anywhere’… and that was one of the things he loved, that I had a daughter.

‘He said, ‘I love that you’re a mother and that’s your priority.’ Some guys might be different, they might think it was complicated, but for him it wasn’t.
“When you meet someone you connect with, that’s just the person you connect with. Everything else – the movie star part – didn’t really come into play. It was just Matt, to me he’s just Matt.’
The outlet asked her what her secret to her long Hollywood marriage was and she said she had “no idea.”
She added. “I just know that I think we both feel very, very lucky to have met each other, so we don’t take that for granted. It’s about life and marriage, so there are ups and downs, but overall it’s easy and fun. And he’s such a good father.’
