Matt Damon shared a rather interesting information about Donald Trump regarding a film cameo the now US president appeared in the past. The “Suburbicon” star told The Hollywood Reporter film directors who desired to shoot a scene on a property owned by Trump were allegedly required to give the business magnate a cameo role.

The “Jason Bourne” actor claimed that such arrangement happened in the case of the Academy Award nominated film “Scent of a Woman,” where the director Martin Brest, added a cameo part for Trump in order to get a permit to shoot on his property.

'Scent of a Woman' cameo

One of the locations of “Scent of a Woman” was the Oak Room of The Plaza Hotel, which Donald Trump once owned. The scene involved the blind Lieutenant Colonel Frank Slade, played by Al Pacino and his companion Charlie Simms, played by Chris O'Donnell having dinner.

Damon described the cameo scene where Donald Trump walks in and Al Pacino's character said, "Hello, Mr. Trump." Damon said it was also required to say Trump's name.

Trump’s walk on part, however, did not make it to the final cut of the film. “Scent of a Woman” went on to bag an OSCAR Best Picture nomination while Al Pacino won the Academy Award’s Best Actor for his powerful performance as the blind retired military man.

'Home Alone 2' cameo

Donald Trump, however, had his cameo in “Home Alone 2” Lost in New York film, where he was asked by a lost Kevin McCallister, played by Macaulay Culkin, for direction to the lobby of the Plaza Hotel.

Other films and tv series

Aside from those two movies, Trump had cameo parts in several films and tv series in the past.

However, it is unclear if these appearances involve the same arrangement claimed by Matt Damon. Films, where Trump had a walk on role, include “Zoolander,” “The Little Rascal,” “Eddie,” “The Associate,” and “Two Weeks Notice.”

Donald Trump also appeared in popular TV series like “The Nanny,” “Sex and the City,” “The Job,” “Spin City,” “The Drew Carry Show,” “Suddenly Susan,” and the “Fresh Prince of Bel Air.”

Current political climate

Now that Donald Trump is president and can no longer bother himself with cameo parts, Matt Damon also raised concern with the current state of things and with the damage that’s being done to the country’s institutions.

He criticized the president on how he handled the Aug. 12’s deadly white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia. “The night that the president [made his] ‘many sides’ comment was absolutely abhorrent,” the actor said in the interview.
