Honorary Aussie Matt Damon just gave an interview with the U.S. Today Show from a local Aussie TAB and muuuuum, can we keep him?
During the interview, the actor was asked about the news that his buddy Ben Affleck reportedly rekindled his romance with ex-fiancée Jennifer Lopez after the pair was photographed vacationing together in Montana. Damon said he couldn’t spill any tea, but said he hopes it’s true because it “would be awesome.”
“There’s not enough liquor in the world for you to get me to say something about that,” he said live from the TAB.
“I love them both,” Damon said. “I hope it’s true. That would be awesome.”

According to Denise’s daughter, Matt Damon was “genuinely interested” in the topic of domestic violence and stayed for the entire event.
The Courier Mail reports that the pair attended the lunch to learn more about the issues surrounding coercive control.
“He took the time to call in and have the lunch, and he was fantastic,” said Jaeneen Cunningham, executive director of the organisation who is pictured above.
“I spoke to his wife and she said it was a fantastic thing that we were doing and they were more educated after the event.”
All the money raised by donations will be used to provide early intervention and housing for women and children. Head here to read more about the work Safe Haven does.
