Matt's lucky escape

Matt Damon had a near death experience when his helicopter plunged during a flight.

Matt was in Norway filming his new film Factotum and hired the helicopter to travel to Sweden for a TV show, but the hydraulics failed just before landing.

According to The Sun Matt said: "There was a lot of noise. It all happened quickly and was very scary. But the pilot managed to get us down. I'm very thankful."

Matt is currently dating barmaid Luciana Barroso.
