Matt Damon Gets A Hybrid

Matt Damon has become the latest movie star to buy a hybrid car after his family urged him to stop guzzling gas. Damon insists he's not trying to be part of an environmental trend among his peers — he just wanted to save money at the gas pump. He explains: "I just have one for my own personal reasons. I don't have a car in New York but I just got a place in Florida and we (himself and fiancee Luciana Barroso) got a car there and it's a hybrid. My father drives one, my brother drives one. They're like, 'Why would you ever drive a regular car?' There's no reason to. These cars are just as good, they're just as fast and they use less gas, so I don't understand why everyone isn't driving one." :: Contact Music
