Matt Damon’s family will soon be trading bagels and lox for fish tacos on the beach.  

Whether acting, directing, or working with various charities, the 42-year-old father of four with wife Luciana Barrosso has always seemed like he has an impressive amount of energy. He’s going to need that energy for his upcoming cross-country move from NYC to Hollywood.

Us Magazine recently caught up with the actor at the screening of his new movie, Elysium, and asked Damon how the family — Alexia, 14, Luciana's daughter from a previous relationship; Isabella, 6; Gia, 4; and Stella, 2 — were feeling about becoming West Coasters.

"Our oldest one is excited," he said, adding, "The younger ones, I think it's kind of hard for them to grasp it. That said, they're looking forward to a change of scenery. They'll have a yard, and they're really excited about that. That's not something you get [in New York City]."

On a recent TODAY appearance, the actor seemed a little torn about leaving the Big Apple. “Basically all of our friends with little kids are out there [in L.A.],” he said. “We're a little conflicted. We love it here, we're really happy here and New York will always be here. It might just turn out to be a little jaunt out there and then a return... It's hard to leave here."

Although the internet’s abuzz with rumors that Damon will buy a house nearby friend and collaborator Ben Affleck, we’ll believe it when we see it. In the meantime, good lluck with your move, Matt and family!
