Matt Damon's vegetable bribes

Matt Damon's children 'bribe' him to eat more vegetables.
The 'Elysium' star - who raises children Alexia, 14, Isabella, six, Gia, four and 23-month-old Stella with wife Luciana Barroso - has no trouble encouraging his daughters to eat their greens but finds he lags behind them when it comes to doing the same.
He said: 'My wife and I introduced it to them at a very young age and they just don't know any different.
'Luckily, I found out all three of my youngest girls love broccoli. There are times where I can't get them to eat protein or a little piece of fish because they are going crazy over the broccoli. Sometimes they're the ones bribing me to eat more of my vegetables!'
The 41-year-old star is particularly troubled by cauliflower and Brussels sprouts, but does continue to eat what he can.
He told People.com: 'Brussels sprouts have always been a tough one for me - and I was never crazy about cauliflower either. But I grew up eating a lot of salad. My mother made a salad with every single meal we had. So I was raised thinking that's how you eat. It's a good balance that I'm trying to teach my own kids.'
