Abusive and accusing, the Oscar winner Matt Damon and host Jimmy Kimmel sat down in couple’s therapy prior to Matt’s appearance for his movie The Martian.
Tonight with Jimmy Kimmel is definitely one of the shows that celebrities want to be on. Jimmy’s show has that added factor of comedy and light hearted fun that all stars enjoy. There has been one certain celebrity who has been deprived of appearing on the show for 12 years. That would be none other than Oscar winning actor and writer, Matt Damon.

Jimmy mentioned Damon’s upcoming movie “The Martian” though he said he shouldn’t have. He followed it with a long monologue in which he said that Matt Damon has a new movie opening on Friday.
It's called The Martian. Matt plays an astronaut who gets stranded on Mars. They have one person on the whole planet and it's Matt Damon. He also added a bit of a twist with the water discovery on Mars with a humorous punch saying he didn't know how the movie producers managed this, but NASA announced an enormous discovery today regarding Mars.
They found water on Mars. Scientists have suspected that Mars had water for a long time. Let me show you a photograph that they took from the rover, I think. You can see right here.
I mean, it was right there the whole time. It was a whole bottle of Arrowhead. They don't know if the water is drinkable or not. It should be. It could be very salty. As he pointed to the screen, the actor appeared and held a sign that read: "Next on Kimmel – Matt Damon."

Damon surprised everyone by coming on stage in his Dr. Phil get-up with a bald cap. He came on stage and did a totally gibberish intro which was, "I'll tell you what, Jimmy. A squirrel in a top hat is like a donkey in a dress.
You can take it to the prom, but if you try to make it wear lipstick, you gonna get kicked. Go on, take a seat. If it walks like a turkey and talks like a turkey, you can put sunglasses on it. Put it right on a horned frog and call it a unicorn, but that don't mean you're gonna get bingo. Am I right?"
Kimmel was unimpressed asking the star what he was doing. Damon reminded him that Kimmel had agreed to let him on the show. This was the cue of showing a filmed couples’ session of Damon and Kimmel with psychologist Dr. Kim Canter Burger.
Kimmel said that he was "anxious" but "hopeful" about possibly making amends with Matt. Damon said he has a room that he waits in "every night" in the hopes of finally appearing on the show and he's been waiting there for over a decade. Kimmel replied that he tries to get him on the show but it’s only a one-hour show every night.
It has other guests for whom Matt doesn't care about, obviously. Jimmy has to do a monologue and they also have a band. Sometimes there are important commercials to run. He said he understood Matt’s point of view but Matt has to understand his as well.
He said that Matt thinks the world revolves around him. He thinks he's the only celebrity in California. Kimmel then added that he imagines it sucks to be Matt. He told the psychologist to look at him, Matt’s trying to be a movie star.
Just look at his face and his body. It's not a movie star face and a movie star body. Damon found his words hurtful, and said that he is verbally abusive. Kimmel retorted that Matt was spoiled and thought that it was his show. It was probably a reference to the 2013 ‘kidnaping’ where he chained and gagged Kimmel and co-opted the show.
Matt said that it was only one time. He said he took that s--t over and f--king busted the ratings wide open. He then addressed Jimmy saying “What did it feel like to be sitting there wishing you were on the Jimmy Kimmel show and not being able to? What did that feel like?"

At last when the therapist told them to say a nice thing about one another, Jimmy said he liked Matt’s friends especially BFF Ben Affleck and Matt in turn said he loved the show. They were instructed to hug at the end but the love didn’t seem to flow even then.
