The love story between the star and his Argentine wife, who are celebrating their 11th anniversary today, begins in perhaps the last location you would think anyone would find his or her soul mate: a Miami bar. If all those things didn’t happen.”A divorcée with a 4-year-old daughter, Barroso wasn’t at all like the other women Damon had previously dated.
For her performance in the TV film Gideon's Daughter (2006) she received a Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actress.
Barroso and Damon dated for a few years and then quietly got married at Manhattan’s City Hall in 2005, just a few months before the birth of their first daughter together.
Since then, they’ve had two more daughters and remain one of the most solid relationships in Hollywood.
She received more acclaim for portraying Queen Victoria in The Young Victoria (2009), receiving a nomination for the Golden Globe Award for Best Actress in a Motion Picture – Drama.
2009 also saw Blunt appear in the crime caper comedy Wild Target with Bill Nighy and Rupert Grint.
