Matt Damon - Matt Damon's vegetable bribes
Matt Damon's three youngest daughters have to bribe him to eat more vegetables as they are ''crazy'' about their greens.
Matt Damon's children ''bribe'' him to eat more vegetables.
The 'Elysium' star - who raises children Alexia, 14, Isabella, six, Gia, four and 23-month-old Stella with wife Luciana Barroso - has no trouble encouraging his daughters to eat their greens but finds he lags behind them when it comes to doing the same.
He said: ''My wife and I introduced it to them at a very young age and they just don't know any different.
''Luckily, I found out all three of my youngest girls love broccoli. There are times where I can't get them to eat protein or a little piece of fish because they are going crazy over the broccoli. Sometimes they're the ones bribing me to eat more of my vegetables!''
The 41-year-old star is particularly troubled by cauliflower and Brussels sprouts, but does continue to eat what he can.
He told People.com: ''Brussels sprouts have always been a tough one for me - and I was never crazy about cauliflower either. But I grew up eating a lot of salad. My mother made a salad with every single meal we had. So I was raised thinking that's how you eat. It's a good balance that I'm trying to teach my own kids.''
