Matt Damon has recently shared a funny conversation he once had with Tom Cruise where the 49-year-old Jason Bourne actor spoke about his appearance on Conan. The conversation was aired on Tuesday (November 5).
“I had dinner with Tom Cruise years ago,” Matt Damon had told host Conan O’Brien. “I kinda cornered him and I said, ‘Hey, tell me about this [a stunt he did], like I’m afraid of heights. How did you do this thing?’”
Matt further added, “And he goes, ‘Oh, you know … I’ve been dreaming of this shot for 15 years, this sequence, and finally I had a chance to do it.’ And I go, ‘So how did it come to pass?’ And he goes, ‘OK, so I go to the safety guy … the safety guy says, ‘You can’t do that. That’s too dangerous.’ And he goes… ‘So I get another safety guy.”
Matt also said that he once thought of tapping out and also referred to him as the best.
“And I looked at him and I’m like, ‘I’m tapping out, you win, you are the best,’” Matt Damon expressed. “My reaction is, ‘Too bad we can’t do that sequence, it would have been really cool.’ His reaction is, ‘No, we’re getting another safety guy.’”
