Matt Damon got lucky with his Irish lockdown.
On Wednesday, he called in to Spin 1083’s Fully Charged with Graham & Nathan radio show and discussed his self-isolation in Dalkey, Ireland, with his family. Damon was shooting the film The Last Duel on location when the coronavirus (COVID-19) lockdowns set in, forcing him to stay overseas to wait it out.
“It’s incredible,” said Damon of the Dublin suburb. “It’s one of the most beautiful places we’ve ever been. … We’ve got this incredible setup in this place, and it’s absolutely gorgeous.” He ended up calling into their show because Bono is a neighbor of his now, and Bono heard the show talking about wanting Matt to call in. So Matt obliged.
Sidebar…Ben Davis was supposed to be in Ireland with his family in early April but had to cancel due to the pandemic. Matt Damon is Ben’s mancrush. Now he’s crushed knowing he could have been quarantine in Ireland and maybe been Matt’s new bestie.
