Hollywood’s biggest frenemies Matt Damon and Jimmy Kimmel want to give fans an upclose look at their strange relationship.
The duo is teaming up with Omaze for a new charity contest where one winner and a friend will get the chance to “sit down for an uncomfortable” meal with the actor and late-night host. Proceeds from the fundraiser will go to benefit NEXT for Autism, a nonprofit organization that aids people with autism through “strategically designing, launching and supporting innovative programs.”
As expected, Damon and Kimmel announced the new Omaze campaign in a hilarious video posted on the “Jimmy Kimmel Live” YouTube account. The always feuding pals roast and throw utensils at each other while sitting at opposite ends of a large dinner table.
“Imagine how jealous your friends will be when you tell them that you and America’s most-loved talk show host sat together and watched one of Hollywood’s dumbest and most disgusting actors eat sandwich after sandwich like a pig,” Kimmel jokes in the video.
In addition to what’s sure to be a very entertaining meal, the winners will get to fly out to Los Angeles for a taping of “Jimmy Kimmel Live” as well as stay at a four-star hotel. Donations start at $10 for 100 entries, while those who donate larger amounts will receive more chances to win.
As for Damon and Kimmel’s faux feud, the antics continued on the late-night show this week when the Boston star showed up during George Clooney’s interview for their new film “Suburbicon.” Damon posed as a “manny” for Clooney’s new twins, complete with strollers and a diaper bag.
“So based on your physique, I guess you’re breastfeeding the children too?” Kimmel quipped when Damon walked on stage, which prompted the actor to reply, “No, I actually just wanted to get their nap, so I brought them to a place where they wouldn’t get woken up by laughter.”
