Despite Reports, Matt Damon is NOT Buying a House in Australia or Moving There


You do have to laugh at how reports mushroom and fester on the internet.

Despite today’s headlines, Matt Damon is not moving to Australia or buying a house there. So confirms his long time publicist Jennifer Allen, whom I’ve known since 1931.

Damon has strong roots in Boston, his wife and her family have strong roots in Florida. She is also Italian. They have kids who go to school. etc.

Jennifer does say, “They’ve visited there a lot lately.” Well, why not? It’s beautiful. It’s just Good will traveling.

Damon is more likely to move to Mars when Elon Musk gets his flights going. After all, Damon was “The Martin.” Maybe he left something there!
