A frequent visitor to the Australian coast, Matt lived in the countryside with his family for six months in 2021, where he filmed a role in the latest Thor episode.
“I’m so excited that my family and I will be able to call Australia home for the next few months,” Matt said ahead of the shoot.
“Australian film crews are known the world over for their professionalism and are a joy to work with, so the 14 days of quarantine will be well worth it.”
He added: “Australia is definitely the lucky country.”
The American actor’s travels have only fueled rumors that he wants to move to Down Under full-time with his family.
A source told Woman’s Day: “Matt loves Australia… Chris enjoys the quiet life away from Hollywood and that only makes it more appealing.”
It’s not the first time reports have surfaced about Matt’s plans to move to Byron Bay.
“Matt is telling friends and colleagues in Hollywood that he is moving the family to Australia for a year,” a “top” source told the publication.
Matt says the move will not affect his work as he will be traveling to where his projects are shot. He also tells friends that he wants a safe place to raise his children.’
But despite rumors of a move to Down Under, Matt has denied leaving the US.
“Matt has been to Australia several times recently, but he has not bought a house there and is not moving there,” his representative said at the time.
Matt is married to Luciana Barroso, 47, and the couple have three daughters: Isabella, Gia and Stella.
The Good Will Hunting star is also the stepfather of Luciana’s daughter from her previous marriage, Alexia.
