Actor Matt Damon Reveals Jaw Dropping Information About President Trump

A famous actor has divulged a little tidbit about the current occupant of the Oval Office.

Way before he was ever seriously mentioned as a presidential contender, President Donald Trump had a few cameo appearances on the big screen. The films shot scenes at The Plaza in New York City, which Trump owned at the time. According to Matt Damon, that was more than just mere coincidence. As the Daily Mail shares, Damon has insinuated that Trump made the cameo appearances a requirement for him to agree to allow his property to be used for filming.

Damon made his revelation during an interview with the Hollywood Reporter. He was chatting about his forthcoming film, Suburbicon, when the topic of the commander-in-chief on the big screen came up.

“[Director] Martin Brest had to write something in Scent of a Woman — and the whole crew was in on it. You have to waste an hour of your day with a b******t shot: Donald Trump walks in and Al Pacino's like, 'Hello, Mr. Trump!' — you had to call him by name — and then he exits,” Damon recalls. “You waste a little time so that you can get the permit, and then you can cut the scene out. But I guess in Home Alone 2 they left it in.”

Damon’s not the only one to have made such a claim about Trump. Earlier this year, ‘Scent of a Woman’ co-star Chris O’Donnell shared a similar story during an appearance on Conan O'Brien.

“It was explained to us that in order for us to film at the Plaza, we had a little walk-on part for Donald and Marla,” he said.

As for Damon’s upcoming film, it’s based on the real-life story of a Black family that moved into an all-white Pennsylvania neighborhood in the 1950s and the violent racial discrimination they had to endure.

“A lot of people, myself included, are really waking up to the extent of the existing racism. And it's so much worse than I naively thought. I just feel naïve at this point. It was shocking to see those kids — they looked 20 and 30 years old — in button-down shirts, with Tiki torches, walking down the street. I thought, 'Those people are a lot younger than me. Who raised them?'” Damon said, in reference to the recent frightening events in Charlottesville.

As such, he feels the film is particularly important to place things in perspective.

“Again, I naively thought that, behind our generation, [another one] was coming with more awareness and inclusiveness, and that everything was getting better with each generation,” Damon continued. “And to see these young, aggrieved, white boys walking with their torches and screaming 'Jews will not replace us!' It was just shocking. Then the night that the President [made his] 'many sides' comment was absolutely abhorrent. Sadly, I feel the movie was made at the right time.”

Damon collaborated on the film with his longtime friend George Clooney, who has been a passionate and outspoken critic of Trump in recent times.
