The Oscar-winning actor Matt Damon (Matt Damon) plays General Leslie Groves, the director of the Manhattan Project in Christopher Nolan’s new film “Oppenheimer”.

During an interview with Entertainment Weekly with the cast and award-winning director, Damon revealed a promise he made to his wife, Luciana Barrosoin one of the sessions they attended together.

“It’s going to sound contrived, but it’s actually true,” Damon told EW’s Around the Table.

“I had – not to be too revealing – negotiated extensively with my wife that I would take leave. “I was in ‘Interstellar’ and then Chris put me on ice for a couple of movies… But I did a negotiation in couples therapy that I do with my wife, that’s a true story,” the actor said.

“I had told her that the only condition for me to stop the license was that Chris Nolan called me. And this without knowing if he was working on something or not, because he never tells you. He just calls you out of nowhere. And so, it was a moment in my house,” Damon added.

The acclaimed director’s 12th film stars an enviable all-star cast with Irish actor Cillian Murphy playing physicist J. Robert Oppenheimer and Emily Blunt, Florence Pugh, Robert Downey Jr., Rami Malek, among others.

“Oppenheimer” will make its world premiere in theaters on July 21.
