London: Actor Matt Damon was not surprised to hear that his good friend George Clooney got engaged.

The `Momuments Men` actor is excited that Clooney is all set to marry Amal Alamuddin and Damon said he was not shocked by the news, reportedly.

"Anyone who has met Amal isn`t surprised, and we`re all really excited for him," Damon said.

The 43-year-old star is thrilled Clooney, who was married to actress Talia Balsam from 1989 to 1993, has found lasting happiness with the human rights lawyer.

"I`m just thrilled that he met Amal and that they`re as happy as they are. He deserves it," he added.

Damon, who raises stepdaughter Alexia, 15, and daughters Isabella, seven, Gia, five, and three-year-old Stella with wife Luciana Barroso, insisted he does not know if his 53-year-old close friend has any plans to start a family with his wife-to-be.
"You gotta ask him that one. I don`t know," he said.
