Birthday Boy Matt Damon Through the Years (PHOTOS)

Matt Damon is turning 41 today, Oct. 8, and we are here to celebrate by looking back at his successful career, style mishaps, and relationships through the years.

It all started with Good Will Hunting, a screenplay he wrote and starred in with his BFF Ben Affleck. This shot him to stardom, winning an Oscar for Best Original Screenplay and a nomination for Best Actor.

Matt has had leading roles in blockbusters like Saving Private Ryan and the Bourne series.  He was named “Sexiest Man Alive” by People Magazine in 2007—he has found the love of his life in Luciana Barroso—and has been actively involved in many meaningful charities.

This is a man who has a life and career we all respect and admire, so let’s all say it together … HAPPY BIRTHDAY MATT!
