Matt Damon wishes he was more romantic.

The 42-year-actor - who raises four daughters, Alexia, 14, Isabella, six, Gia, four, and two-year-old Stella with his wife Luciana - is not very good at romantic gestures and his wife's thoughtfulness makes him feel bad about it.

He said: ''I wish I were better because my wife deserves somebody who surprises her with a gift or flowers or some wonderful idea. I've never been good at that, and she's really good at it, which makes me feel even more like s**t.''

Matt also admitted his spouse gets annoyed with him because he finds it difficult to say no to their kids.

He told Playboy magazine: ''Lucy and the girls can definitely bring me to my knees. They just know. My wife gives me s**t because it's harder for me to discipline my girls, probably because they're girls. With boys, I could relate more and it would probably be easier. Growing up, girls are so mysterious to us. Even as a grown man, they remain mysterious.''

Matt loves spending time at home with his family and revels in his reputation as a boring guy because there is little public interest in his family life.

He added: ''The narrative about me kind of goes, 'He's a boring married guy,' which is great, because I don't get any of that other stuff like Brad Pitt and George Clooney do. People think I'm kind of vanilla and they leave me alone to work, have an actual private life and be a husband and dad.''
