Boston native Matt Damon went home Thursday to be honored for his work in the arts with 2013 Harvard Arts Medal presented by actor John Lithgow. People.com reports that Damon talked about renewing his wedding vows with his wife Luciana in St. Lucia (the couple has four daughters).
Damon also said being in his hometown after the Boston Marathon bombings was emotional.
“Particularly right now, it’s good to be back in Boston,” Damon said. “I went to school where the youngest bomber went to school and was just talking about all the happy memories I had there. And my nephew goes to school there now. I think we’re all still in shock. I certainly am still in shock, and I’m trying to figure out what this all means and how it could happen.”
