They need to hug it out. Matt Damon and his sworn enemy, Jimmy Kimmel, went to “court-ordered” couples counseling in a hilarious segment on Jimmy Kimmel Live! Monday, July 25, in an effort to resolve their long-running relationship issues.
As fans of the show know, the Jason Bourne star has never “officially” appeared on Kimmel’s talk show, and their “feud” goes back 14 years to when Kimmel closed a show by saying, “Apologies to Matt Damon, we ran out of time.”
So after a previous attempt at counseling last September, the pair decided to see a therapist again.
The segment kicked off with Kimmel walking in for the session with psychotherapist Paul Kundinger and constructing a wall between him and the Oscar winner with sofa cushions (because he felt “unsafe”).
They explained that the counseling session was “court-ordered” because Damon lives at Kimmel’s studio during the week. “It’s technically stalking,” Kimmel insisted.
“You invite me every day; you say I’m going to be on the show, and I’ve never been on the show,” Damon countered. “So I took matters into my own hands.”
“I bribed Ben to sneak me into his jacket,” Damon explained.
“Now I’m going to have to come in here with Ben too,” Kimmel countered.
The therapist then suggested that they try some art therapy and draw how they felt about each other.
“For his maturity level, I think that would be advisable,” Damon said of Kimmel. The pair then sketched pictures that summed up their feelings — watch the video above to see how Damon and Kimmel depicted each other.
