He might be the star of the movie, but Matt Damon played second fiddle to his beautiful wife Luciana Barroso at the Jason Bourne premiere.

The Oscar-winning actor (45) was joined by his wife on the red carpet in London on Monday night and looked more rock solid than ever after 11 years of marriage.

And while Damon might be the superstar of the relationship, the mother-of-four rivalled his star status in a fuschia gown with a high slit and plunging neckline.

The couple famously at a bar in Miami where she was working in 2002 while he was filming Stuck On You in Miami and he's never shied away from gushing over his other half.

"I literally saw her across a crowded room, literally," he said of their first meeting.

"Eight years and four kids later, that's my life. I don't know how else our paths would've crossed if that didn't happen. If all those things didn't happen."

He credits marrying a "civilian" with keeping him and his family grounded and doesn't feed the tabloids with a salacious personal life.

“I got lucky, I fell in love with a civilian," he previously told Esquire. "Not an actress and not a famous actress at that. Because then the attention doesn’t double — it grows exponentially. Because then suddenly everybody wants to be in your bedroom.

“But I don’t really give them anything. If I’m not jumping up and down on a bar, or lighting something on fire, or cheating on my wife, there’s not really any story to tell.

"They can try to stake me out, but they’re always going to get the same story — middle-aged married guy with four kids. So as long as that narrative doesn’t change too much, there’s no appetite for it."

Meanwhile, his co-stars Alicia Vikander - minus boyfriend Michael Fassbender, in a Louis Vuitton dress - and Julia Stiles, were also spotted at the premiere at the Odeon cinema in Leiceister Square.
