Damon, who turned 40 earlier this month, made his comments to Parade magazine in an interview to promote his latest film, Hereafter, which is directed by Clint Eastwood.

Damon and his wife, who married in 2005, are parents to Isabella, 4, and Gia, 2, and Barrossa has an 11-year-old daughter named Alexis from a previous relationship.

"My wife is about to have our fourth kid and we've drawn a line in the sand," Damon said. "This is it. Our lives are full and wonderful and we're done having kids. Lucy is in her third trimester for the fourth time and I think that's about enough to ask of any woman. I don't want to turn her into Ethel Kennedy."

Ethel Kennedy, wife of the late senator Robert F. Kennedy, had 11 children.

Damon starred in the hit Bourne action films but says he was not approached about filming a fourth movie, The Bourne Legacy, which is due to be released in July 2012.

"I found out they're making another when somebody saw it on the Internet," he said. "Nobody bothered to call me. I'm not in it, but even so, they'll work Bourne into the title I guess. Universal just wants to call everything the Bourne something. So I guess they are trying to make another franchise and as they say, 'It isn't over until it's over.'"

In Hereafter, which was released on Friday, Damon plays a psychic that can speak to people in the afterlife. Damon also starred in Eastwood's previous film, Invictus.

"He's such an incredible person to work for because he's just so calm and he creates a really nice atmosphere and everyone feels really privileged to be working with him," Damon said about Eastwood. "The amazing thing is how fast he works. He can knock off a bunch of shots in a couple of hours that would take another director a whole day."
