Damon's Corn Maze Disaster

MATT DAMON was in for a shock when he took his wife and daughters pumpkin picking for Halloween at a New Jersey farm - after the family found itself trapped in a corn maze for two hours.
The Bourne Identity star travelled to New Jersey's Alstede Farms with his pregnant wife Luciana, and the couple's daughters - Isabella, four, and Gia, two.
But the family outing turned into a disaster when they couldn't find a way out of the farm's corn maze - which was only expected to take 30 minutes to get through.
Recalling the incident, Damon says, "The friendly old local who's outside was like, 'You kids are gonna have a great time in the corn maze, it's about a half hour but you gotta answer questions to find your way to go.' There are multiple choice questions, little clues and if you miss every question it can take you up to an hour. And so two hours later we're still in the corn maze - and what we didn't know was the questions were all about the Boy Scouts."
Damon admits he was so desperate to get out he even considered tearing through the sky-high rows of corn to find an exit - until a group of clever youngsters came to their rescue.
He explains, "There was a posting that said, 'If you knock any of the corn down we'll throw you out,' so we found these little kids just ripping through the corn maze... and eventually they got us out."
