While walking the red carpet for his new film Air, Matt Damon expressed disdain for his “rival” Jimmy Kimmel. The “feud” is most likely an act, but it’s still terribly entertaining to see the two go at each other’s throats, whether it’s genuine or not.

On the red carpet, while Kimmel was taking a photo with his wife, Damon shouted from afar, “Hey! I’d love to take a picture with you but we ran out of time!” Then, while being interviewed about his film by ET, Damon was asked if he would like to end his longtime “feud” with Kimmel, to which he responded “No, no, he’s an a**hole. Why would I ever do that?” Damon then added “He’s a terrible human being. He’s a demonstrably bad man.”
ET spoke to Kimmel about the incident right after it happened, with the late-night talk show host saying “You know, I don’t know who that was, but yeah, I heard him. He was loud.” Kimmel then claimed that Damon was inside the Cocaine Bear suit at the Oscars, although Damon denies these claims.
Matt Damon and Jimmy Kimmel’s “Feud”
When Kimmel was asked if the pair could “reconcile” on his show, Kimmel responded, “I just can’t imagine it happening. I really can’t. I think we have Ben [Affleck] on tomorrow, so we’ll have that, but that will be as close as we get.”
In reality, this “feud” is most likely a work of fiction between two longtime friends. Their “feud” began years ago, when Kimmel started making a joke on his show where he would say that they ran out of time for an interview with Damon.
The “feud” was further ignited when Kimmel’s girlfriend at the time, comedian Sarah Silverman, came on his show with a song called ‘I’m F***ing Matt Damon.’ Then, on another episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live!, the talk show host performed a follow-up song called ‘I’m F***ing Ben Affleck.’ Affleck is Damon’s longtime friend and creative partner, who co-stars with Damon in Air, a film he also directed.

I dunno why this feud started but I do know I don’t give a tinkers dam when to get publicity a co ic has to resort to using a GASP vulgarity. Not much wit or his out there nons.
The virtuous co-host of the MAN SHOW has always advocated for the equal and competative rights for women in the US and abroad.
While Donald Trump was Grabbing Pussys Kimmel was counter acting by having women grab his!
JK is a follow the democratic leadership roll and the only people laughing are a bunch people sitting in the audience with mask on!Or I should say sheep!!
Kimmel has been to Epstein Island many times, he is on the Lolita logs many ties, rumor has it what he has done will make anyone sic to their stomachs, same goes for Corbett… Someday it will all come out and then you will think far less of them than those you do think less of, believe you me..
Don’t you guys ever watch Kimmel? That’s been a running joke between them for years! And it’s still funny.
Jimmy Kimmel is the biggest a$$hole and shouldn’t even be on tv….in fact 99% of the late night hosts should all be removed …..they are big mouth pos
Jimmy Kimmel is a sexist pig. That was proven when he hosted “The Man Show” years ago. The man has no respect for women.
Still waiting for Kimmels Man Show redox.
Jimmy Kimmel is the funniest of the late-night hosts. If you don’t watch him. He doesn’t need you, and neither do 2/3 of the rest of the country.
