Someone’s going way off the script at his interviews, and we can’t imagine his publicist is very pleased with him. In an interview about his new movie The Adjustment Bureau, Matt Damon criticizes President Obama over his economic policies. “I think he’s rolled over to Wall Street completely. The economy has huge problems. We still have all these banks that are too big to fail,” Damon complained to The Independent. “They’re bigger and making more money than ever.” Last week Damon ripped on Obama to Piers Morgan as well. We didn’t see that episode, but we can safefly assume that Matt’s publicist was standing behind Piers the entire time, waving his arms so violently for Damon to shut up, he looked like he’s directing a plane down the tarmac.
When Damon was asked if he would vote Democrat in the next Presidential election, he joked, “Good God, no! I just got a 3 per cent tax cut.” A little too real, Matt! While Damon won’t run for office himself, he seems pretty much done with the elected officials we have now. “They had a chance that they don’t have any more to stand up for things,” he says. “They’ve probably squandered that at this point. They’ll probably just make whatever deals they can to try to get elected again.” But as a multi-millionaire, you can start controlling the government with all the other big-wigs, Matt! Or apparently buy a P.R. person who doesn’t mind that you’d rather rave about the state of the democracy rather than what it’s like working with Emily Blunt.
