He was recently voted sexiest man alive—now Matt Damon has proved he also is one of the most generous actors around.
The Bourne Ultimatum star amazed staff at a restaurant when he had a cup of coffee—and tipped them one thousand dollars.
“It was incredible, they could not believe it,” said a source.
“It’s a nice restaurant with very famous and rich clientele—but this was something else. It made everyone’s day.”
The 37-year-old, who lives in one of Miami’s most exclusive neighbourhoods with his young family, is known for being low-key but is also famous for his charisma.
And he certainly won over staff at the Ago restaurant, at Miami Beach’s trendy Shore Club hotel, when he popped in for a morning cup of coffee by himself.
Although the Good Will Hunting star refused to have his picture taken with one of the waiters, he more than made up with his charms—and his wallet.
Rather than the traditional 10% for the $5 cup of coffee, his tip was more like 20,000%.
“Matt was really charming and friendly,” added the source.
“He was very discrete. He came in wearing a baseball cap and shades, by himself, and just ordered a cup of coffee.
“One of the waiters asked to take a picture, but he politely said he didn’t want any fuss.
“The guy was a bit disappointed but understood. And with that tip, no-one was complaining.”
Now that’s some Goodwill!
