The generous brunette took pity on Damon after reading one of his magazine interviews, in which he bemoaned the fact that he rarely got to sleep in his own bed.
And the I Know What You Did Last Summer beauty immediately decided to take action by going shopping on his behalf.
She says, "There was this article and it was about Matt Damon, and he was saying that he works so much that he doesn't feel like he has a bed of his own anywhere. And it really struck me as this sort of sad thing.
"I was like, 'He's famous and he's so cute and he's Matt Damon and he should feel like he has a bed.' It just made me sad. So I sent him a bed. I sent him an AeroBed and a comforter and sheets. I wrote in there that I was a huge fan and that I wanted him to travel with it and feel like he had a bed wherever he went.
"I never heard back from him. I have (seen him since) and he's kind of looked at me a little weird."
