Damon is one of the actors who believes it’s fortunate to work with well-known filmmaker Christopher Nolan. He recently played the role of General Leslie Groves in his latest film, Oppenheimer. He is even ready to drop all the projects just to be a part of Nolan’s film.

According to People, in a therapy session with his wife, he promised Barroso that he would be taking a break from acting unless he got a call from Nolan. Both of them understand the need for communication in relationships, and they used to attend therapy to work things out between them. Damon respects his wife’s opinion and wants to keep their relationship strong.

 “I negotiated in couples therapy—this is a true story—that the one caveat to my taking time off was if Chris Nolan called. This is without knowing whether or not he was working on anything because he never tells you. He just called you out of the blue. And so, it was a moment in my household.”

Damon has an extensive history of appearing in a couple of Nolan’s finest movies. He has handled the role of an astronaut named Dr. Mann in his epic science fiction movie, Interstellar. Although Damon had a supporting role in the movie, critics praised his performance. Nolan was also very impressed by Damon’s acting. This prompted Nolan to contact Damon for Oppenheimer. Eventually, he ended up doing the role of Gen. Leslie Groves. He adds,

“I had been in Interstellar, and then Chris put me on ice for a couple of movies, so I wasn’t in the rotation.”

Damon says that the relationship between him and Nolan is lucrative for real reasons. Damon commented It’s like he had been put “on ice” in between the making of Interstellar and Oppenheimer. The Good Will Hunting actor expects to work on more successful movies with Nolan in the future.
