Matt Damon has opened up about everything from that unflattering portrayal in Team America to challenging weight loss transformations in a candid Reddit AMA, and not even Ben Affleck is spared from his uncensored comments.
The 45-year-old star made an appearance on the self-proclaimed "front page of the internet" to promote his new movie Jason Bourne and, if you don't believe it's really the Martian actor talking, he provided proof to the contrary below:
But now, let's get on to some of the enlightening nuggets that the golden goose laid during his time in the Reddit hot seat and get a better sense of what the acclaimed actor is really like as a mere mortal.
Matt Damon Still Isn't Totally Down With 'Matt Damon'
Matt Damon is arguably as famous for his mentally challenged character who constantly utters his own name like a humanoid Pokémon as he is his high flying career, but the star still isn't 100 percent happy with how his image was used.
Reddit user SCFac asked Damon how he felt when he found out about his involvement in the Trey Parker and Matt Stone penned movie, and he replied:
Matt Damon and Ben Affleck might be some of the most well-documented celeb BFFs, but Damon went ahead and dropped Ben's little bro's name when Reddit user GregorGuy asked who his favorite actor to work with was.
To be fair, naming the older Affleck would be a bit too obvious, and at least he's keeping it in the family. Right, Ben?
Frenemies For Life <3
Reddit user AtotheJ2215 bought the convo back to Matt's bud Ben later in the AMA when asking about Good Will Hunting. Damon freely admitted this was one of the most transformative moments in his career and gave a shoutout to his long-time pal; but, like a true friend, he also managed to drop in some subtle burns. Giving yourself all the good roles, eh Ben?
The Art Of Suffering
Like many award-winning actors, Damon has been prepared to suffer for his art and undergo some pretty excruciating body transformations, but it's a role from earlier in his career that still haunts him.
While Christian Bale infamously ate just an apple and a can of tuna to emaciate himself for The Machinist, pure chicken breast doesn't seem much better, and when you see the results it's truly disturbing.
Pimp Slapping A Knife-Wielding Assassin Realness
Naturally, the Bourne movies were high on the agenda, and when asked by Matt Baster what he immediately thinks of when he hears the words "Jason Bourne," Damon replied:
A Shoutout To The Lookalikes Out There!
Reddit user casos92 has always been told he looks like a young Matt Damon and he seriously blew the star away with his super impressive The Martian Halloween costume. The same user also asked what working with Robin Williams was like and, just like anyone who has ever worked with the late star, Damon was laden with praise for the comedy genius.
You REALLY Need To Go To His House For Taco Night
d_abernathy89 asked Damon the relatively serious question about how he chooses to say yes or no to a script, but all eyes were really on his mouthwatering, masterful and damn right right answer on how to make the perfect taco.
Sadly, he's already married :(
Oh, And Julia Stiles Smells Like...
I knew it!
Check out the trailer for the upcoming Jason Bourne below and let's all fly to the cinema to support this true G and his work:
What a beautiful taco chomping, best bud banter making, pimp-slapping star. Cheers, Matt!
What would you ask Matt Damon if you had the chance?
