Matt Damon and Jimmy Kimmel tried to work out their ongoing faux-feud onscreen on Monday night, resulting in a new commitment to 12 more years on the show.
After the Martian actor appeared on the show (in a Dr. Phil disguise), the two aired a bit of their “therapy” session from earlier that day. Kimmel argued that he tries his best to put Damon on the show every night, and Damon noted that he waits backstage accordingly, to no avail.
But then the two started discussing their actual issues. “He thinks the world revolves around him. … And he’s trying to be a movie star? Just look at his face and look at his body. It’s not a movie-star face and a movie-star body,” Kimmel said of Damon, who then responded, “He’s verbally abusive and couches it as truth.”
Damon also clarified to Kimmel about his film We Bought a Zoo, “That zoo was for both of us! It was supposed to be something beautiful! It was for both of us, and you never even showed up! … I just wanted to build something with him and share it and nurture it and watch it grow.”
And while Kimmel insisted that it was his show, Damon reminded him of the time he hosted in 2013. “I took that shit over and busted the ratings wide open.”
