Matt Damon has been having great fun promoting his latest Jason Bourne movie – prank phoning people and receiving embarrassing throwback pictures from fellow actor Ben Affleck. However, the release of the film has also sparked the actor to talk about serious issues.

The actor was recently interviewed by The Sydney Morning Herald.

During the interview, Matt praised Australia’s gun control and said ‘I wish that could happen in my country.

‘It’s such a personal issue for people that we cannot talk about it sensibly.’


Matt Damon also commented: ‘There have been so many [mass shootings] at this point. Sandy Hook, when those children were murdered, if that didn't do it, you know, I just don't know. Maybe we just need to evolve further before we can have that conversation, I don't know.

‘It's wonderful what Australia did because you guys haven't had a mass shooting since you went, “No, we're going to be sensible about this.” And nobody's rights have been infringed, you guys are fine.

‘I wish we could be sensible like that but I don't think that's going to happen in my lifetime.’
