Hollywood actor Matt Damon is reportedly about to purchase a house in the country near Lubbock, Texas. He told the magazine that he was “looking for a change of scenery and a change of lifestyle” and has apparently visited the area on more than one occasion in the past and, according to his publicist, has “fallen in love with the Lubbock area”.
Damon also had some nice things to say about the residents of Lubbock, “I think that Lubbock will be a great place to live and raise my family. It’s safe, it’s got great steakhouses, and the people of Lubbock have been so friendly to me and my family when we’ve been in the area,” the actor said with a warm smile.
We’re not sure what the residents of Lubbock will think about his move there but we imagine he’ll receive a warm welcome.

It’s not a bad town. It just depends on the life you choose to live and those you surround yourself with.
Just leave your liberal politics in Hollywood Matt. Love your movies though! Hopefully you come to understand that the LACK of liberalism is why this place is so great for families!
Excuse me? The bigotry, racism, and sexism are ridiculous out here–thanks to your coveted conservatism. Rampant and rabid conservatism has made Texas the laughing stock of the nation. Lubbock makes national news when it looks stupid — because of over the edge conservatism. Oh, and then there is the intolerance of…liberals. Lubbock claims it is friendly and welcoming, but only if you fit a certain mold. Hypocrisy is ugly–but it is a badge of honour here.
Don’t move there dude! Lubbock sucks and they don’t know how to drive, daily car crashes. And the scenery sucks there is nothing in lubbock, suckiest city in the U.S.A
You suck! If you don’t live here, you have no right to put down our city.
