Los Angeles: Actor Matt Damon loves his wife Luciana because she is so strong and independent.

The 40-year-old actor who raises 12-year-old stepdaughter Alexia and daughters Isabella, four, Gia, two, and four-month-old Stella with spouse Luciana hopes his children grow up to be as strong as his partner, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

Recalling their first meeting in 2003, he said: "There was something appealing about my wife and that was she didn`t need me."

"I love that she`s strong. Strength is a wonderful quality for my daughters to see in the most important woman in their life," he added.
