Major ControversiesMatt Damon was in trouble because of his own statements over The Green Light project when in his documentary he criticized a black movie maker on the basis of diversity.

There was another bold statement that Matt Damon gave when he was promoting his movie The Martian. He said that gay people should not be open about their sexuality as it affects the way people see you as an artist and one should be able to play the mystery well.

He has a friendly feud with Jimmy Kimmel because once his time on the show was cut short and Matt stormed out. Jimmy made fun of this at the end of few episodes and Matt appeared again on the show and took over the show to say what he had to say.
