You'd think a superstar, millionaire actor like Matt Damon would prefer to work out in some elaborate, fancy home gym with an exorbitantly expensive trainer or - at the very least - an Equinox. But that is not the case for the Great Wall star, who is apparently totally cool with pumping iron alongside college students. The 46-year-old was spotted working out at a gym on Tufts University's Medford/Somerville campus in his hometown of Boston on Wednesday, where he reportedly used the StairMaster and lifted weights. He snapped photos with members of the Tufts field hockey team and was happy to talk to a few other students there.
"He was definitely ripped," Tufts senior Josh Morris told People. "I seemed to be the only person who noticed him, and couldn't pass up the opportunity to say hi. He was with an older gentleman who appeared to be a friend or trainer." Josh, who was one of many students who couldn't resist saying hello to the actor, even got a selfie. "Many students were saying hi, and he seemed very friendly. I assume he knew what he was getting into working out at a university gym."
Almost didn't lift today, but now glad that I did
Maybe Matt figured his Patriots hat and Boston Red Sox t-shirt would act as camouflage? He might not be able to go incognito at Tufts, but it looks like his recent job narrating the Boston Marathon documentary Boston might keep him in town for a little while.
