Matt Damon Ready To Pitch Donald Trump On Foreign Aid For Clean Water!

Matt Damon is hoping to take the cause of clean water to President Donald Trump!

“It’s not one we think he’d be against. Foreign Aid in general we’re not sure where he stands because he hasn’t said a lot about it, you know. We’re hoping for the best,” the 46-year-old actor told The Associated Press while joining Stella Artois in honor of the Buy A Lady A Drink campaign during the 2017 Sundance Film Festival on Saturday (January 21) in Park City, Utah.

“I think, obviously, he’s got a pretty full plate right now,” Matt said. “Everybody’s going to be coming at him so hopefully we get our turn.”

Matt also added that clean water accessibility isn’t a partisan issue and declared “an all-hands-on-deck approach to solve this” – Watch the full interview below!

Ben Affleck Says His Boston Accent is Better Than Matt Damon's

Move over, Matt Damon! Ben Affleck claims his Boston accent is far superior to his fellow Boston native’s.

It all started when sports writer Bill Simmons stated that Matt‘s accent in Good Will Hunting is “the greatest Boston accent that’s ever been captured in a movie by an actual actor.”

Ben found out about this and obviously had to set the record straight.

When People asked him who he thinks has the best Boston tongue, Ben responded, “Mine, in Good Will Hunting. Way better than Matt’s.”

“I can’t believe he singled out Matt Damon’s as better than mine?” he added. “Did he see the movie? He’s older, he’s losing it.”

Matt, however, thinks both Ben and his brother Casey Affleck did a great job with their accents in the film.

Matt Damon's 'Great Wall' Cast & Crew Reportedly Exposed to Chemicals on Set

Matt Damon‘s movie The Great Wall is set to be released in February and a new report about production on the movie claims that the cast and crew were exposed to chemicals on set.

An unnamed producer told The Wall Street Journal that everyone on set was wearing a medical mask at one point except for Matt, as he was probably working on a scene.

“How do I look Matt Damon in the face when he’s the only one not wearing a mask?” the producer said.

“I nearly passed out from the fumes that came out of a spray can,” a crew member told the WSJ, claiming that a chemical sealant that is banned on other sets was used.

The Great Wall, which has started with a strong box office gross in China after opening there first, will hit theaters stateside on February 17.
