Matt Damon: more than just an actor and "Sexiest Man Alive":
Matt Damon has always been honest about his love for his hometown of Boston. Whether it's through film or through his words about his beloved Red Sox, Damon and childhood friend Ben Affleck rave about their city any chance they get. Which could explain why Damon wrote a touching essay about his memories of the Boston Marathon for the local paper weeks before the heartbreaking attack took place on April 15. In the piece, published on March 31, the 42-year-old actor shares his thoughts on Marathon Monday and how it's impacted the life of his family and friends.
