Shilpa Shetty meets Oscar winner Matt Damon at IPLApril 21st, 2009 - 3:38 pm ICT by Sampurn Wire
Shilpa Shetty, co-owner, Rajasthan Royals and her beau cum business partner Raj Kundra met Oscar winner Hollywood star Matt Damon and his wife Luciana at the IPL Gala Dinner at Cape Town, South Africa.
Shilpa was wearing a metallic grey outfit and looked stunning as she met Hollywood star Matt Damon, for the second time, at the Indian Premiere League Gala Dinner, in Capetown, South Africa. Last year Damon-Shetty had their first public rendezvous at the third annual ONE X ONE Benefit Gala when Shilpa joined the ranks of other international celebrities and Hollywood A-listers including event host, Matt Damon onstage when she presented Richard Gere with the prestigious ONE X ONE Difference Award held at Toronto.
The reason behind Matt Damon’s presence at the IPL Gala event was that he is actively involved in charitable work, including the ONE Campaign and H2O Africa Foundation with his wife, Luciana Bozán Barroso. The One X One Benefit Gala is held each year to raise money and awareness for children that are suffering around the world, with key children’s charities. The event has previously been attended by stars such as Brad Pitt, Penelope Cruz, Bono, John Legend and Kate Hudson.
Damon was voted year 2007’s Sexiest Man Alive by People magazine. An American actor, writer and philanthropist, Damon’s career was launched following the success of the film Good Will Hunting, from a screenplay he co-wrote with friend Ben Affleck. The pair (Damon-Affleck) won the Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay and the Golden Globe Award for Best Screenplay for the work and Damon garnered multiple nominations for Best Actor for his lead performance in the same film. Damon has gone on to star in films such as Saving Private Ryan, The Talented Mr. Ripley, the Ocean’s series, the Bourne series, Syriana, The Good Shepherd, and The Departed. -Sampurn Media
