Alexia Barroso is an American aspiring actress of Argentine descent. She is the stepdaughter of Academy Award winning actor, writer, and producer Matt Damon who is married to her mother, Luciana Bozán Barroso. A lovely young woman, she grew up watching her mother struggling to make ends meet. Luciana was previously married to Arbello “Arby” Barroso, who is Alexia’s biological father. When Alexia was about three years old, Luciana, while working as a bartender in Miami, met Damon. He was in the city to shoot the Farrelly brothers’ directorial venture, ‘Stuck on You’ (2003). Her divorce with Arbello was finalised in December 2004. She and Damon married in 2005 in a private ceremony at the New York City Hall, with six-year-old Alexia in attendance.
The Meteoric Rise to Fame
Alexia’s mother’s marriage to one of the highest grossing actors of all time has brought them a sense of financial security that they had never known before. Both of her biological parents are immigrants from the working class background. For a hundred years and more, the city of Miami has served as the figurative doorway to the United States of America for millions of downtrodden Latin Americans leaving their homes in search of a better life and happiness, and Alexia’s father and mother were no different.
Even when their marriage began to deteriorate, they worked tirelessly to provide Alexia a good home and everything else she might need to fulfil her own American Dream. They still share a healthy relationship after all these years, as can be made out from Arbello’s rare interviews. He has nothing but praises for Luciana as a mother and Damon as a stepfather. He is incredibly proud of the amazing young woman his daughter has become.
Despite all the changes that have occurred in the lives of Alexia and her mother since 2005, they lead a normal, average life. Granted she now has opportunities she might not have had otherwise—like attending a progressive private school—but as a family they are sensible, and as Damon described in an interview with ‘The Guardian,’ “Boring”. Damon himself is an incredibly private person; he does not need to be under the limelight all the time, unlike many of his friends in Hollywood. He married Luciana on December 9, 2005 at the Manhattan Marriage Bureau in New York City in a ceremony attended by only a few.
Alexia was present when her parents renewed their vows in 2013. Comedian and late-night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel officiated the ceremony. Alexia shares a strong bond with her stepfather. He taught her how to drive, and in 2017, she was seen with him touring the American University campus.
She got her first experience in acting in the family drama ‘We Bought a Zoo,’ released in 2011. She played a zoo staff in the Cameron Crowe directorial venture, which also starred Damon, Scarlett Johansson, and Thomas Haden Church. Will she follow her stepfather’s footsteps into stardom? Only time will tell!
