Damon's Divorced Parents Celebrated Wedding Anniversary

THE BOURNE IDENTITY star MATT DAMON has fond memories of his parents celebrating their 25th wedding anniversary together - even though they'd divorced 19 years beforehand.

The Hollywood heart-throb's parents ended their marriage when Damon was just two years old, but continued to celebrate special occasions, such as holidays, together.

So it came as no surprise to Damon and his older brother KYLE when his dad announced plans to celebrate his 25th wedding anniversary.

Damon says, "For what would have been their 25th wedding anniversary, my father called us - I was in college at the time and said, 'I wanna go out and have a nuclear family anniversary dinner.'

"We went to a restaurant and the four of us sat there and my dad ordered champagne. The waiter came over and said, 'Is there a special occasion?'

"He said, 'Well, yeah, it's our 25th wedding anniversary.' The waiter made a huge announcement to the whole restaurant...and everyone started cheering and my dad stood up and said, 'No, no, no! We've been divorced for 19 of 'em!'

"Once you've been through a divorce how can there not be that fondness forever?"
