Matt Damon has revealed that he was attracted to his now-wife because of her independence.

The actor, who met Luciana Barroso in 2003 and raises four children with her, said that he thinks it is important for his kids to have a "strong" mother.

He told Glamour: "There was something appealing about my wife and that was she didn't need me. I love that she's strong. Strength is a wonderful quality for my daughters to see in the most important woman in their life."

The 40-year-old also insisted that he is happy to just have girls because they give him another "perspective".

When asked if he wants a son, he joked: "No, I hope to still have a marriage."

He then added: "It's a whole different energy being surrounded by women. I am getting a new perspective on the world that I'd have missed if I'd had boys."
