Matt Damon’s camp says he is not moving his family to Australia to get away from Trump, despite a report circulating from Page Six.
“Matt has visited Australia several times recently, but he has not bought a house there nor is he moving there,” his representative told Business Insider.
Earlier this month, Sydney’s Sunday Telegraph reported that Damon was “said to be in the process of buying” a house near friend and fellow Hollywood superstar Chris Hemsworth, in Australia’s Byron Bay.
Then an anonymous source told Page Six that not only was Damon buying a house, but that he was moving his family there in response to the policies of Trump.
“Matt’s telling friends and colleagues in Hollywood that he’s moving the family to Australia,” the Page Six source said, claiming Trump was to blame. “Matt’s saying the move will not impact his work – as he will travel to wherever his projects are shooting,” the source continued. “He’s also telling friends he wants to have a safe place to raise his kids.”
Damon has not been shy about expressing anti-Trump sentiments in the past, but according to his reps he has no plans to move to Australia.
