Reports claim that actor Matt Damon is moving his family to Australia. The main reason behind this move is that the liberal star is fed up with President Donald Trump.
Page Six reports that Damon, 47, has purchased a property in Byron Bay, New South Whales. The home is located right next door to a place owned by Chris Hemsworth, with whom Damon recently appeared in the movie "Thor: Ragnarok."
“Matt’s telling friends and colleagues in Hollywood that he’s moving the family to Australia," said a source to Page Six. The reason, says the source, is that the actor disagrees with the policies being pursued by President Trump. He is upset that the president if frequently butting heads with liberal Hollywood stars.
The source continues, "Matt’s saying the move will not impact his work — as he will travel to wherever his projects are shooting. He’s also telling friends he wants to have a safe place to raise his kids.”
Damon currently has four children with his wife Luciana Barroso. Meanwhile in Australia, owners of a new bolt-action rifle are being forced to turn them in because of what the guns look like. Take a look:
Since the run-up to the 2016 presidential election, the announcement of the results of December 16, and his inauguration in January, Trump has continually earned vocal protest by large liberal Hollywood celebrities.
Robert De Niro, for instance, even claimed that he wanted to punch President Trump in the face, and tried his best to sway voters away from President Trump and into the camp of Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.
Hindustantimes writes that "everyone from Jennifer Lawrence, JK Rowling, Eminem, Angelina Jolie, and her ex-husband Brad Pitt have voiced disapproval of Donald Trump's methods."
Damon has spoken out about Trump in the past. In particular, the actor spoke out against Trump in September for the president's response to Charlottesville, Virginia.
“To see these young, aggrieved, white boys walking with their torches and screaming ‘Jews will not replace us!’ It was just shocking. Then the night that the President [made his] ‘many sides’ comment was absolutely abhorrent,” Damon said, according to the Washington Examiner.
