    Matt Damon is happy and in love.

    With his 10-year wedding anniversary to wife Luciana Barroso coming up, the Martian actor has had some time to reflect on just how much he cherishes his relationship.

    "I'm lucky I found my wife," the 44-year-old actor tells Entertainment Tonight. "I guess maybe, if there's any secret ... it's to feel lucky."

    Still, Damon admits, "I think marriage is insane. It's a crazy idea but I love being married to my wife. So I wouldn't tell anybody else anything about their relationship."

    With every marriage having its ups and downs, Damon says there is no secret formula to making it work.

    "So much of it is out of your hands," he explains. "I mean, I just had that conversation with my father this weekend. He said the same thing to me. He said it's God's grace, is what he said. Because you just don't get lucky."



    While his close friend Ben Affleck tries to navigate his way through a painful divorce, Damon assures everyone that Affleck is doing just fine.

    "I think he was actually in Atlanta with his family," Damon said of Affleck, who has been traveling often to the Southern city to visit his three children, who've been living there while estranged wife Jennifer Garner works on location for her new movie. "So we missed each other but ... he's good. He's good."

    Damon has been a major source of support for Affleck since his split from Garner. The actors and former costars have been loyal friends for more than 30 years.

    "They have a bond," a source previously told PEOPLE. "Few people know Ben better than Matt, and that is really invaluable."

    Last week, Damon chatted with PEOPLE about Affleck at the Project Greenlight premiere in Los Angeles, joking about his friend's birthday, which Affleck celebrated with his family at Disney World.

    "I wish him well, but he's 43, it's kind of like, meh," Damon said. "What is 43? It's not 40, it's not 45, it's 43. It's a forgettable birthday."

    Still, Damon said that his pal is doing "great."

    "He's got a big smile on his face," he said.

    I like him and have respect for how he publically honors the father of his step-daughter.

    He has always been a rock star in my book. Just re-watched Good Will Hunting...a forever classic! Wonder if he's really gay & likes cuban guys that he keeps in a backhouse on his property as Laineygossip.com claims. I just don't see it! ...and, if he does, and the wife knows, and it is all good, then fine by me! She also says he is an amazing person, giving, sincere and one of the genuine few that goes out of there way for others on a regular basis. I also was impressed when he stuck to the Bourne films producer and left the series when he thought the writing was piss poor. Not many would walk away from that much cash over the quality factor when it was a sure thing for him.

    Matt always comes across like he has more integrity than Ben.

    I agree with this. Feeling lucky that you are in the relationship with the person you are with. It's made me grateful to be where I am, and try to work hard to not screw it up.

    I alway thought it was George Clooney, who was into Cuban rent boys.

    I read on agc.com that Matt also likes his men the way he likes his cigars...guess you ain't A-list until you're accused of being gay/bi.

    I love reading stuff like that. That's how to avoid fucking up your kids.

    There have been plenty of blind items of him cheating on his wife. I remember one where it said he liked taking on films that took him to other countries, so that he could have a taste of the women there, so to speak. It was basically solved to be him, and they started listing down the movies he's done, which were filmed in other countries. I really don't feel he's the upstanding guy he makes himself out to be. Not to mention he's made some sexist comments, which is very surprising coming from a guy with three daughters and who was raised by a single mom.

    Sometimes I think the celebs' handlers throw out scraps to the gossip columnists who do BI's, just to confuse people.
