Kicking off awards season in style, Matt Damon and his wife, Luciana Bozan Barroso, attended the IFP's 22nd Annual Gotham Independent Film Awards at Cipriani Wall Street in New York City on Monday (November 26).

The "Bourne Supremacy" star looked dashing in a dark suit, white dress shirt, and a shaved head, while his lovely wife looked gorgeous in a strapless white-and-black dress.

In other news, the 42-year-old actor recently spoke to The Hollywood Reporter about working in the showbiz industry.

When discussing children and acting, Matt frankly stated, "I would try to steer my daughters away from acting. Women are in a different business than we are. It is just brutal for women. For us, the roles get really good at 40 and beyond. And that's really when you start doing your best work."

In the same discussion, Mr. Damon dished about the effects fame can have on a person, saying, "When we started [writing] 'Good Will Hunting,' I was 22 and Ben [Affleck] was 20, and it came out when I was 27 and Ben was 25. I always had this theory that you kind of retard emotionally at the moment you become famous: It's not that you change; the world changes in its relationship to you. So your entire reality shifts. And that's a jarring experience and hard to prepare for."
