Ben Affleck has been giving Matt Damon advice on coping with his newborn daughter Gia via text message.
The actor—who starred alongside Matt in 1997 movie ‘Good Will Hunting’, which the pair also wrote—admits he has been in contact with Matt and has also passed on some of his own tips on caring for children.
Ben, who is expecting his second child with wife Jennifer Garner later this year, said: “I’ve kind of been texting Matt back and forth, and he’s doing great and his wife Luciana is doing great.”
Matt—who also has a two-year-old daughter Isabella and a 10-year-old stepdaughter Alexia with Luciana—is also “thrilled” about the new addition to his family, according to Ben.
He added to People magazine: “Anybody who has a child is excited, I think, no matter what the gender is. They are thrilled. The thing that people really want, when you get down to it, is a healthy child.”
Cindy McCain and Michelle Obama star in a new television ad that highlights successes in helping the world’s poor and encourages people to do more this election year.
But don’t expect to see the presidential candidates’ wives. Instead, their words—and those of others—flow through the mouth of actor Matt Damon.
“Thanks to everyday Americans who chose to make a difference, millions of lives have been saved in the world’s poorest countries,” Damon says, opening the spot, titled “Voices,” by the bipartisan, anti-poverty group ONE and its Vote ‘08 project.
His is the only face seen, and he mouths words spoken by New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, an independent; Michelle Obama, wife of Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama; and Cindy McCain, wife of Republican nominee-in-waiting John McCain.
Damon continues in different voices, focusing on the number of children who can now attend school, people with AIDS who are getting medication and those saved from preventable diseases.
“But there’s still more to do,” Cindy McCain’s voice says.
Hers is followed by a man’s asking viewers to join people from different political parties. “Democrats, Republicans and independents,” Bloomberg’s voice says. “Who are coming together as one,” adds Michelle Obama’s.
The ad is part of the ONE project’s effort to get the next president to promise to take concrete steps to address world poverty.
The group says both presidential candidates support the cause, but that more can be done.
“We want to remind them that the public is out there eager for them to say more about this,” said David Lane, president and CEO of the ONE campaign, told The Associated Press in an interview.
The ONE campaign says it is not endorsing any candidate for president.
The organization is spending $1.8 million to air the ad, beginning Sunday during NBC’s “Meet the Press” and ABC’s “This Week.” It also is scheduled to run on cable television and online until Sept. 4, corresponding to the national political conventions.
LOS ANGELES (Reuters)—Actor Matt Damon and his wife welcomed their second daughter into the world on Wednesday, and all were “doing great,” his spokeswoman said.
“She is a healthy, beautiful baby girl,” spokeswoman Jennifer Allen told Reuters in an e-mail.
The couple named their daughter Gia Zavala Damon, but no other details were released.
Damon, 37, star of the “Bourne” action movies, and his wife, Luciana, 32, already have one daughter named Isabella, who was born in 2006. Luciana has another daughter from a previous marriage.
Damon had several small movie roles in the early 1990s, but saw his Hollywood breakthrough in 1997’s “Good Will Hunting” playing a young janitor and mathematics genius with personality problems. He and his friend Ben Affleck won an Oscar for writing the movie’s screenplay.
He later gained acclaim for his acting talents in dramas such as “The Talented Mr. Ripley” and proved his box-office drawing power in smash hit action flicks, “The Bourne Identity,” “The Bourne Supremacy” and “The Bourne Ultimatum.”

Matt Damon thinks Americans should be more internationally-focused.
“I think many of our problems as a country would be solved if people had thick passports,” the actor, 37, tells Conde Nast Traveler in its September issue.
“There’s just no substitute for actually going and seeing things,” he says.
Damon, who says only 21 percent of Americans have passports, says that fame has made him want to do good.
“You start to feel a level of responsibility to direct attention to things that actually matter more than to silly things like who you’re dating,” he explains.
“For a lot of actors, our biggest fear is that we’re going to start talking about things we don’t fully understand and sound like idiots,” he says. “In the long run, I’ll do much more good if, when I open my mouth, I have something worth saying.”
The father of 2-year-old daughter Isabella and step-father to 10-year-old Alexia is expecting a baby girl this fall with wife Luciana.

Damon described a trip to Tanzania, where he visited a clinic and witnessed children receiving anti-malarial medicine.
“I realized that because of President Bush’s malaria initiative, this baby had survived,” he told the magazine. “American taxpayer money saved this baby’s life.”
He has encouraged both presidential candidates to increase aid to Africa.
“When you go to a country and see your fellow Americans feeding people or getting clean water or saving their lives, you are really seeing the best of us. We are exporting the best of who we are
