Hear Matt Damon’s Classic Prince Story on ‘Fallon’

Actor recalls taking his family to see the Purple One in London and meeting him backstage

Matt Damon recalled taking his daughter to her first concert – Prince – and then meeting the legendary musician backstage, on The Tonight Show Wednesday.

The Jason Bourne star said it was his 10-year-old daughter's first concert. "We could reach up and touch Prince," Damon said. "I turned to my wife and said, 'We've completely ruined this child. This is her first concert!'"

But the classic Prince moment came after the show when Damon and his family went backstage to meet the Purple One. While making small talk with the musician, Damon said, "I asked him, 'You still live in Minnesota don't you?' And he just turns and looks me right in the eye and he goes, 'I live inside my own heart, Matt Damon.'"
