Matt Damon reportedly moving to Australia to get away from President Trump

Hey Matt, can you take some of your buddies with you?

From Yahoo: Matt Damon and his family are reportedly moving to Australia to get away from Donald Trump.

Page Six reported on Thursday that the actor has purchased a property in Byron Bay, New South Wales and has spread word of his imminent move to his close friends.

“Matt’s been telling friends and colleagues in Hollywood that he’s moving the family to Australia,” a source told the outlet, adding that the move is because of his fundamental disagreement with President Trump’s policies.

“Matt’s saying the move will not impact his work — as he will travel to wherever his projects are shooting,” the source explained. “He’s also telling friends he wants to have a safe place to raise his kids.”

It’s unclear whether Damon and his family will live in Australia full-time or how long they plan on staying. The Oscar-winning screenwriter has four children with wife Luciana Barroso: Isabella, 11, Gia, 9, and Stella, 7, as well as daughter Alexia Barroso, 18, whose biological father is Luciana’s ex-husband.

According to Sydney’s Sunday Telgraph, Damon’s newly-purchased land in Australia is directly next door to fellow “Thor: Ragnarok” actor Chris Hemsworth.

As Page Six notes, Damon has no announced projects in the works, other than producing an adaptation of “Agatha Christie’s “Witness for the Prosecution,” which still star pal Ben Affleck, and his cameo in the upcoming all-female “Ocean’s 11” spinoff film, “Ocean’s 8.”

Damon and Affleck made headlines earlier in the week when it was announced that they would support inclusion riders in all future deals.

Damon has not yet responded to reports that he’s moving to Australia.

  3. So funny he wants a safer place for his kids. He didn’t get the memo they have a major problem with gun crime where it’s supposed to be gun free all over but it’s like rover — the fleas come out at night that still have their guns and do damage in a free area that no one can shoot back. So if we’re lucky he will take half of holly-weird with him and that will be half the garbage gone.

    • Brian . . . . Thank you for stating the real facts about how “safe Australia is.” I can only hope that “he will take half of holly-weird with him and that will be half the garbage gone.”

  6. Clearly, Matt Damon is hell-bent against more Americans having jobs, lower taxes, the rebuilding of America’s crumbling infrastructure, and lower trade deficits. I suggest he go all the way by renouncing his U.S. citizenship and become a bona fide Australian.

    • Matt is just another dumbed down modern product of the indoctrinational system (it’s not been educational for at least 2 generations). Good riddance. Hopefully more Hollyweirdos will follow suit.

    • Dr Eowyn . . . . God Bless you for zeroing in on the exact points why Trump has helped us thus far. We are far and away better off with what Trump has done for us in a little over one year . . . than what has BEEN DONE TO US in the last twenty years of Presidents.

      As far as this dumb ass Damon, I think it’s great that he’s leaving this country. Is he also planning on relinquishing his US citizenship? Good for him if he does.

      Personally, I would not be surprised if this impending move was due to all the revelations of debauchery, pedophilia and the like in Hollywood . . . I can imagine that the move to Australia would keep his children safe from the perils inherent to living in or around the Hollywood crowd.

  9. If he is in fact moving there because President Trump is in office, let’s hope all of Hollywood moves there! They can become mini-gods and mini-goddesses in Australia and promote the Australian Prime Minister’s decision to vaccinate all children and all people! That is a REALLY safe place to be! (sarcasm injected)

  10. Safe place for his kids? I was not aware that Matt lived in a ghetto. It must be so dangerous in the Pacific Palisades. So much riff raff in those $10,000,000 homes. Maybe he should just move to a better neighborhood. What a hypocrite. What a fraud.

  13. Now we just need to convince the idiot that he’s using the same Internet as President Trump and hopefully, he’ll move off of it too.

  14. My heart bleeds for him. Being forced to live in squalor, with all that money, in such a beautiful place. Hiring nannies to take care of the children, while he and his trophy can jet off to where ever it suits them for a week or two. Maybe Monaco, I hear the weather there is nice this time of year. Yeah, right. As if we are supposed to feel bad for them, when just driving to the grocery store for many of us is an adventure in danger, the likes of which is like something out of a Bourne movie. But of course, him and his aloof friends simply will not and don’t wish to understand the plight of the average American. Because the only time that they pretend to care about any of the deplorable people in the flyover states is when they are trying to convince them to pull that lever for the Democraps. sic. They have no problem with using more firepower in their movies than most forward firebases had in Vietnam, and yet, when the American citizen wants to own a handgun, a shotgun, and a semi automatic, centerfire rifle that look like a military full auto weapon, they act like you want to feed a puppy to an aligator snapping turtle.

    Don’t ask me for tears, Matthew, lad. I weep for this nation, sometimes every day. I weep for the nation that I am leaving for my children and grandchildren, while I sat by and let the likes of people like you continually flush and flush, until you swept away nearly all that was good and righteous. It is my fervent hope and prayer that God will raise up strong leaders to turn the people’s head away from sin and back to Him. He promised that if we did that, He would forgive and heal, something that we sorely need. At the same time, I pray for you and your ilk, that God will work within your hearts, and bring about a change. We all need Jesus Christ, and in the same measure. I hope you find Him.

    • pigpen51 . . . . That was the most exquisitely eloquent addition to this discussion possible.

      I also pray daily “…that God will raise up strong leaders to turn the people’s head away from sin and back to Him. He promised that if we did that, He would forgive and heal. Something that we sorely need. At the same time, I pray for you and your ilk, that God will work within your hearts …”

  16. “He’s also telling friends he wants to have a safe place to raise his kids.”
    I don’t know WHAT makes him think Australia will be a safe place to raise his kids. OH,that’s right-NO GUNS! (They have more guns now than before their infamous Gun “Buy-Back”/Confiscation.) Oddly enough,in places where guns are removed from the citizenry,there’s generally a corresponding increase in murders via knives,rocks,hammers,axes,bats,hatchets,auto hit and run,and explosives. Some people are just gonna kill,regardless-guns are just the most convenient tool for the job. if not guns,there are many other ways to do it.

  17. truck . . . . You really nailed that! That is a very concise explanation of why the Second Amendment is needed every bit as much in 2018, as it was back in 1776 or whenever. Simply marvelous.

  19. I think good ole Matt is about to have a very rude awakening when he gets down there and finds out about all the dangers in and out of the water down there. And the distance from everything else will get old when it comes to travel. No more 4-6 hour flights across country. Talk about isolated. And when he finds out he will still to pay for armed guards down there is perfect.

  21. Yeah well he’s entertaining although I’ve never paid to see his performances. But after all he can’t really do any of that stuff in real life. Probably no one can.
    I’ll be glad to make a deal with him. He doesn’t tell me how to think and I don’t tell him how to act.

  23. Well, well, well! Finally! A Hollywood hypocrite who puts his money where his mouth is! Actually, I wish Matt luck. Seriously. And of all the famous pieces of offal who said they would move, Matt Damon is one who is actually doing it.
    BTW, Matt: You’ll like Australia’s no-firearms policies. Until you get robbed, God Forbid.
    And don’t let the door hit ya where the Good Lord split ya!
