Matt Damon is reportedly capable of sleeping while standing up, much to the astonishment of onlookers at a recent charity event
Matt Damon can sleep standing up.
The 'Invictus' actor - who raises three children with wife Luciana Bozan Barraso - was reportedly seen enjoying a quick nap on his feet backstage at a recent Save the Children fundraiser in Greenwich, Connecticut.
An onlooker told the National Enquirer magazine: "Someone asked him if he was ok, and Matt woke up.
"He explained he recently found out he can nod off on his feet."
Matt's ability to take a nap anywhere could be handy in the future as he is expecting to get even busier in his career.
Speaking of his future ambitions, he said recently: "I want to direct someday and I can't really pass up the chance to work with the people I'm getting to work with.
"I've worked with Paul Greengrass three times now, and Clint Eastwood twice, and Steven Soderbergh five or six times, and the Cohen Brothers. As long as that keeps happening, I can't see myself taking time off, unless the work dried up."
