It is unknown why she didn’t end up with one of their parents but it is speculated that she was first left to be alone with her mom after her parents separated. Since her mom could not handle raising her on her own, she asked her parents to take care of Luciana.

Looking for a better life, Luciana and her grandparents settled down to Argentina. During her formative years, she was interested in art and had a dream about becoming an artist in the future. Even though she got a Bachelor’s Degree in a local college, she was not able to find a job in her field of study. To pay her bills, she was able to get a job as a flight attendant. She did not have a permanent job for a while. She also worked as a bartender in Miami, Florida. She was able to secure jobs that featured her beautiful appearance. She enjoyed her jobs when she was able to put smiles on the faces of her customers.

Neither Luciana, nor Arby wanted to talk about their relationship and their personal lives together. They are civil with each other and don’t want to insult each other or air out any of their dirty laundry.

Famous Husband

He is an award-winning Hollywood actor, having earned a screenwriting Oscar for his work on 'Good Will Hunting.' Matt is known for the Jason Bourne films as well as “The Talented Mr. Ripley”, “Behind the Candelabra” and “The Martian”.

Matt Damon told Bustle that the concept of marriage is insane but he’s been fortunate to find the one partner that makes it work for him, “I think marriage is insane. It's a crazy idea but I love being married to my wife. So I wouldn't tell anybody else about their relationship. But I'm lucky I found my wife. And I guess maybe, if there's any secret ... it's to feel lucky. So much of it is out of your hands. I mean, I just had that conversation with my father this weekend. He says the same thing to me. Says it's God's grace, is what he said. Because you just don't get lucky.”

Matt was living a bachelor life until he met Luciana, “When I was in my twenties, I wondered if I would ever be able to settle down. But I found the right person and it was like getting struck by lightning — literally, everything changed in my life. Now I find the prospect of being single terrifying. My life is so much easier because of my wife and my marriage. Everything makes sense.”

The family’s net worth is estimated to be around of $140 million due to Matt Damon’s lucrative contracts with movie studios and endorsements. They both are very active on social media because their fans and followers are always looking for the new facts about their favorite stars’ life. The pair is also considered to be the one of the most beautiful in Hollywood. They are a great example of a perfect family.

Matt is also a big fan of the Boston Red Sox and he tries to attend their games whenever possible. Among his friends, there are such popular actors like George Clooney and Brad Pitt, with whom he works on charity projects. His best friend, actor Ben Affleck, together with his wife, Jennifer Garner, are good family friends. They even like to hang out together and can be often seen going out with Matt and Luciana.

To keep things comfortable and stable, they have a two week rule that Matt explained as, "We have a two week rule. I'm not away for more than two weeks. I think you need to be with the person you love as much as possible. My wife is my soul mate. I don't like being apart from her.”

Matt and Luciana have been able to keep their relationship out of the tabloids because of their dynamic. Matt says that he is too boring to have a tabloid worthy story, “A lot of it boils down to luck, my wife's a civilian and that takes a lot of pressure off. It's really sex and scandal that moves those magazines [the tabloids], and there's nothing scandalous about a guy who's married and has kids. If they come outside where I live, they are going to die of boredom — there's just nothing really going on that would sell a magazine.”

Matt and Luciana prefer to keep the details of their intimate love life very private. They don’t try to get photographed like other stars. They only make public appearances when they go to events or when Matt has to do an important interview. They want to keep their lives protected because they want their children to have normal lives.
