Jimmy Kimmel vs Matt Damon, Skit or Real?

by on February 29, 2008

The following videos show what it seems to be a grudge between Matt Damon and Jimmy Kimmel. Nevertheless you need to watch these videos so you have a good laughter.

Frequently at the end of the show, Kimmel thanks the guests as usual, but then adds, “Our apologies to Matt Damon, we ran out of time.” Kimmel told TMZ.com that he says this “for no good reason at all,” continuing, “A star like Matt Damon would never be scheduled to appear near the end of the show where he can be bumped.”[3]

On September 12, 2006, Damon appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live!. A montage of clips demonstrating the numerous times Kimmel performed the bit was shown and, after a very lengthy introduction by Kimmel, Damon appeared on stage. After a few seconds, Kimmel apologized and stated that the show was out of time. He asked Damon if he could come back tomorrow, to which he replied, “Go fuck yourself.” Damon continued to curse at Kimmel throughout the rolling of the credits, ultimately slapping the desk and walking off the set with Kimmel chasing after him.

In the December 17, 2006 issue of USA Weekend, Kimmel himself confirmed that the Damon incident was a joke, putting the debate to rest.[4] In the June 5, 2007 episode, Kimmel sent his sidekick Guillermo to the Ocean’s Thirteen premiere to interview Matt Damon, though when he started the interview, he said that they were out of time, at which point Damon assumed that Kimmel sent him. In the August 2, 2007 episode, Kimmel then announced that Guillermo was taking on the role of Jason Bourne, who was played by Damon, for The Bourne Ultimatum. A clip was shown in which Guillermo was playing Bourne, until Damon showed up and thought that Kimmel was now trying to bump him from his movie. Damon tried to chase Guillermo but Guillermo escaped.

In a related segment that aired on January 31, 2008, Jimmy’s long-time girlfriend Sarah Silverman jokingly announced that she had been “fucking Matt Damon” in a music video. Damon took an additional jab at Kimmel’s long running gag by telling Kimmel at the end of the video, “We’re out of time.”

On February 24th, 2008, after the Oscar’s, Kimmel debuted his rebuttal video announcing that he’s “fucking Ben Affleck”. In addition to Affleck, who is good friends with Damon, the video featured Robin Williams, Don Cheadle, Harrison Ford, Cameron Diaz, Christina Applegate, Benji Madden, Joel Madden, Dicky Barrett, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Lance Bass, Dominic Monaghan, Meat Loaf, Pete Wentz, Joan Jett, Huey Lewis, Perry Farrell, Christopher Knight, Macy Gray, Rebecca Romijn, Josh Groban, and unnamed choir singers as recording booth singers, along with Brad Pitt as a delivery man.
