At this year’s Save Our Schools March, a Reason.TV reporter interviewed Matt Damon and his mother, a teacher.And put her foot in her mouth.
After comparing the job security of an actor to that of a teacher as an incentive to work hard, Damon — who was visibly annoyed by the implications of her comparison — answered:
“A teacher wants to teach. I mean, why else would you take a shitty salary and really long hours and do that job, unless you really love to do it?”
Later, Damon also schooled the smart-mouth cameraman who decided to butt-in with a made-up statistic.
The look on the speechless reporter’s face says it all.
