Page Six is reporting that finally one Hollywood celeb has the gumption to back up his promise to leave the country after the election of the most recently vilified Republican president.
Celebs like Alec Baldwin, Lena Dunham, and Barbra Streisand have all promised to emigrate in the past. But Matt Damon is actually pulling the trigger.
The report cites the purchase of a home in Australia where he’ll move his wife and four kids so they can live a “safe life” free from that madman, Donald Trump.
We might have recommended Canada which would more likely have been his particular flavor of socialism. Nevertheless, good riddance.
Here’s more from Redstate…
It finally happened — after years of Hollywood celebrities vowing that the horrors they expected to endure during the tenure of a Republican president would force them to flee America, one of them is finally doing it.
According to Page Six, Matt Damon will be moving his family to Australia, “in part because the liberal star’s fed up with President Trump.”
Damon, 47, reportedly has purchased a property in Byron Bay, New South Wales, according to Sydney’s Sunday Telegraph. The home’s next door to a place owned by Chris Hemsworth — with whom Damon recently appeared in “Thor: Ragnarok.”
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. The source added, “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.” Damon has four children with wife Luciana Barroso.
