Happy birthday, Matt Damon!
The award-winning star turns 43 today, Oct. 8. One of the most accomplished actors of his generation, Damon got his big break at 18 years old when he had a single line in the classic rom-com "Mystic Pizza." Since then, the birthday boy went on to become Jason Bourne, Private Ryan and one half of the team behind "Good Will Hunting."
A hearty happy birthday goes out to one of Boston's golden boys.
