Oscar Award Winner, check. People’s Sexiest Man Alive, check. Full fledged action star, check. Contagion star Matt Damon has done it all.

Hailing from Cambridge, MA, the forty-year-old actor made his first big waves in Hollywood after he and childhood friend Ben Affleck wrote the screenplay for the Academy Award winning film Good Will Hunting. After doing a few period pieces and cameos in several Kevin Smith movies, Matt really hit the A-list when he starred alongside heartthrobs Brad Pitt and George Clooney in 2001’s Ocean’s Eleven.

Since then this certifiably hot hunk (who even looks good bald!) has collaborated with Hollywood heavweights such as Morgan Freeman, Clint Eastwood, Angelina Jolie, Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio.

In honor of his latest flick, Contagion, Celebuzz has compiled a gallery of some interesting facts about the acclaimed actor. Watch the trailer for Contagion below and let us know if you’ll be seeing the flick when it comes out September 9th!
