Matt Damon plans to stay in the backseat for a while after he was slammed for his sexual harassment comments. Pictured: Damon arrives at the premiere of Paramount Pictures' 'Suburbicon' at the Village Theatre on Oct. 22, 2017 in Los Angeles.

Matt Damon is a very supportive dad to his three girls who are huge fans of Harry Styles.

The "Ocean's Eleven" star recently spoke with People's Jeremy Parsons and fondly talked about his three daughters — 10-year-old Stella, 12-year-old Gia, and 15-year-old Isabella — who love Styles very much. Damon is also a  stepdad to his wife Luciana Barroso's eldest daughter, Alexia, 19, from a previous marriage. According to the actor, he took them to Styles' concert at Madison Square Garden earlier this month.

"It was great. Yeah, yeah it was great," he said. "They love him. And that album dropped, or at least I became aware of it, in that first lockdown. So we had that on repeat."

He added that he "knew every word to every song" and joked that he may be "too old to know all the words." 

The former One Direction singer dropped his second solo album "Fine Line" in December 2019 just a few months before the COVID-19 pandemic started. Damon's daughters have been playing the album on repeat that's why he was able to memorize the lyrics to every song on it.

Memorizing Styles' songs and taking his daughters to the "Night Changes" singer's concert were not the only things he and his wife did for their daughters, who are "Stylers." In his interview with Tara Hitchcock, the "Jason Bourne" star shared his ultimate surprise for Isabella.

"Last Christmas, my wife, it was a one-two punch," Damon said. "We gave my 15-year-old a life-size cardboard cutout of Harry Styles. Harry Styles did a little video and said 'Hello' to her, and she lost her mind. I think that was the best we've done so far. I don't know how we'll top it."

Damon and Barroso have been married for over 15 years already. In a previous interview, the "Good Will Hunting" star shared that he thought he would never get married while seeing his brother's happy family. Damon experienced the same joy when Barroso came along.

To keep his family intact, Damon refuses to be apart from them for more than two weeks. When his "Bourne" movie shifted to London, his wife and kids visited him there. However, Alexia, wasn't able to join the rest of the family because she had to attend school at the time.

"So that’s a big one for us. We’ve never split the family," he told The Hollywood Reporter.
