The two first met at a bar in 2003. Then, Matt came to Miami for a movie shoot titled “Stuck On You”. Matt then visited a bar where Luciana happened to work. Just as the title of the movie, Matt got stuck on Luciana from that moment.
In a dialogue with Ellen DeGeneres, Matt claimed that the movie was initially proposed to be shot in Hawaii, but was later changed to Miami. He claimed that he was dragged by the crew members to go take some beer that night. Everything happened by chance, he concluded.

One Saturday evening, she was at work in Miami when some guys came to the bar she was working. He claimed to see me across the hall, but yeah, there were lights everywhere.
Those were the words of Luciana Barroso when she had some dialogue with Vogue Australia. She went further to say that she and Matt had some conversation for a few minutes of which Matt invited her for a party that same night. However, Luciana refused to honor the invitation because she has a child.

“Following the side of the bed which leads to the bathroom regardless of wherever we are”.
