Washington: Actor Matt Damon has revealed that fatherhood has changed and turned him into a cautious man.

“I’m probably more protective than I’ve ever been now that I have children,” People magazine quoted the actor, 40, as saying at the press junket for his new film, ‘Contagion’.

“My wife Luciana’s nickname for me is ‘Red Alert’. I sometimes check to see if the kids are breathing.

“I tend be a little overprotective without trying to be a helicopter parent,” he added.
