Matt Damon is a man of many talents.

The Oscar winner not only stars in his upcoming movie Promised Land, but he also wrote it with John Krasinski.

But Damon also does a decent President Clinton impersonation, which he demonstrated in an appearance on Monday's The Tonight Show With Jay Leno.

He relayed a story about the first time he met the president, during a screening of 1997's Good Will Hunting -- Damon's breakout film, for which he won a original screenplay Oscar alongside Ben Affleck -- at Camp David. But at the event, a producer made an awkward comment about John Travolta's less-than-flattering Clinton portrayal in Primary Colors.
