Feeling generous! Matt Damon reportedly made a surprise appearance at a charity event — and even donated $10,000 — while he films Thor: Love And Thunder in Australia.
The 50-year-old and his wife, Luciana Barroso, attended the gathering for domestic violence charity Safe Haven in Brisbane on Friday, May 7.
"My mum founded a charity fighting domestic violence. During a fundraising lunch, Matt Damon dropped in and donated $10,000," a since-deleted Reddit post read, according to News Au.
"He took the time to call in and have the lunch, and he was fantastic," Safe Haven's executive director Jaeneen Cunningham said, according to the Daily Mail. "I spoke to his wife and she said it was a fantastic thing that we were doing and they were more educated after the event."
Damon was spotted in photos at the event, donning a grey blazer, a white shirt and black pants.
The affair reportedly raised a total of $169,000, with funds going towards providing early intervention and housing for women and children dealing with coercive control.
Later the same weekend, Damon, Barroso and their daughter, Isabella, were spotted at a jewelry store in Brisbane’s Fortitude Valley on Saturday, May 8. According to Courier Mail, the actor was not noticed at the Molten Jewelry store and left without purchasing anything.

Damon and Barroso's marriage ran into a rough patch, according to an OK! source, but since moving down under "Matt has been arranging date nights, showering her with presents and even hired a top chef to cook all their meals."
The insider added, "He knows he started to get complacent and neglected Luciana, but he's promised her not to let things get so bad again. He's determined to put the spark back in their marriage and it seems to be working!"
The family is staying in a $7,000-a-night rental home in Byron Bay as Damon works on the film, but "even when he's working, he's got time set aside for just them," the source said.
Damon arrived in Australia in January and quarantined with his wife and three children in Byron Bay before filming for the upcoming Marvel film began. The Ford v Ferrari star is reprising his cameo role from Thor: Ragnarok.
"I’m so excited that my family and I will be able to call Australia home for the next few months," he said at the time. "Australian film crews are world-renowned for their professionalism and are a joy to work with so the 14 days of quarantine will be well worth it."
