Look Which Famous Parents Came to Comic-Con! (Photos)

Matt Damon enjoys himself at Comic-Con.

Woe be to those who think of comic conventions as just a bunch of folks in weird costumes who have every episode of Star Trek memorized. In fact, they’re a huge deal in which big-name stars come out to greet fans and promote new movie and TV projects.

The Comic-Con in San Diego this weekend is no exception. The stars of such mega-hits as True Blood, The Vampire Diaries and Twilight were in attendance, along with the headliners of Total Recall – both the original and the upcoming remake!

And who do we see here? None other than Matt Damon, who has a big studio film, Elysium, coming out next March.

He was one of a number of celebs who also happen to be parents – but the cameras didn’t catch any of their kids coming into the convention. Sure, these actors are busy working, but surely they could have had a nanny walk their children through the hall, couldn’t they?

Let’s hope they did. Otherwise, that sound you hear in the distance might just be a famous parent’s youngster shrieking, “YOU WENT TO AN EVENT FEATURING KELLAN LUTZ  AND IAN SOMERHALDER AND DIDN’T BRING ME?!?

See who else got their fantasy/sci-fi on!
