UPDATE: A publicist for Damon denies the actor plans to move to Australia, saying “Matt has visited Australia several times recently, but he has not bought a house there nor is he moving there.”
A-list celebrity Matt Damon is preparing to move his entire family to Australia due to his ongoing feud with the President; reportedly telling friends and family he’s ready to abandon the US because of Trump’s policies.
According to the New York Post, the Hollywood celebrity recently purchased a new home in New South Wales alongside his ‘Thor’ co-star and Australian-born actor Chris Hemsworth; hoping to raise his children in a “safe place.”
“A source exclusively tells Page Six: ‘Matt’s telling friends and colleagues in Hollywood that he’s moving the family to Australia’ because the activist actor disagrees with Trump’s policies. The president’s frequently butted heads with liberal Hollywood A-listers including Meryl Streep,” writes the Post.
“Matt’s saying the move will not impact his work — as he will travel to wherever his projects are shooting. He’s also telling friends he wants to have a safe place to raise his kids,” the insider adds.
Damon came under fire late last year when he made multiple “insensitive comments” regarding the ‘Me Too’ movement that swept Hollywood; suggesting there was a “spectrum of behavior” in terms of sexual assault.
