Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past decade or so, you know that late-night host Jimmy Kimmel and actor Matt Damon have a bit of a rivalry going on. Recently, the rivalry amped up even more, with Damon’s longtime best friend and confidant Ben Affleck joining the fray. His tweet sent shockwaves through Hollywood, as the movie star declared that he was on Jimmy Kimmel’s team.
With gossip rags reporting that Damon had “replaced” best friend Affleck with the hunky Australian star Chris Hemsworth, Affleck decided to share one of their clickbait headlines on Twitter. Stating that Hemsworth could “have” Damon, the Boston native poked fun at the ridiculousness of the situation. With tabloids claiming that Damon and Hemsworth had gone on vacation with their families together, it definitely seemed as if the circumstances were rife for comedic exploitation.
However, with the history of this feud running deep, it seems as if the debate could just be heating up! When Jimmy Kimmel and Matt Damon engage, anything can happen. Now, with the stakes even higher, we are bound to see some more comedy emerge from the feud. Because it’s been going on for about 12 years now, there’s no reason to think the hilarious public mudfighting won’t go on for a span of at least two decades.
