U.S. actor Matt Damon feels sorry for the high-profile couples, Brad Pitt and Angelina, because those two are like "prisoners," according to media reports Wednesday.

"I have friends who are like prisoners. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, for instance," Damon said during an interview with German TV network Tele 5. "They can't just go someplace. If they go for a walk, it turns into an international incident."

Compared with Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, Damon seems to lead a relatively low-profile life and he really enjoys it. He said: "I'm really lucky, because I have the best of both worlds. I do the work that I love and need, but don't need paramilitary troops to protect me when I walk out of my front door."

Damon attributes his comparatively peaceful life to his wife Luciana, who is not a public figure. "I'm not as crazy as most of the other stars. I don't really know why, probably because I married a woman who isn't an actress. And we live in New York," He said.

He added, "Ever since I found my wife and we had children, my whole life revolves around that. It gave my life a dramatic change in direction. As long as we don't show up in typical tourist spots, we can walk the streets without being noticed. New Yorkers are very cool. They don't flip out if they see me."
