Matt Damon has finally given an interview since isolating in Ireland. It was with morning radio show Graham and Nathan's Fully Charged on Spin1038.
During the interview Matt Damon spoke about learning about how Dalkey residents were protecting him from the media.
He also spoke about his eldest daughter contracting coronavirus with her roommates in New York early on, but said "everybody's ok."
The actor described Dalkey as "one of the most beautiful places we've ever been."
He also had high praise for Taoiseach Leo Varadkar. Plus he finally revealed what he had in that Supervalu bag...
Watch the full interview here:
The Irish public were absolutely loving the exchange and praised the hosts as well as the humility of the Hollywood legend.
The main thing I've taken away from the Matt Damon interview is that he is literally the nicest guy in Hollywood. Name dropped SuperValu, Ben Affleck, thanked a nurse for her hard work and said Dalkey is the most beautiful place he's ever been. Matt, you are now Irish #MattOnSpin

One of my favourite things to the #MattOnSpin interview is @graham_otoole and @Nathan_TallMan asking Matt Damon if he had a bag of cans in this picture. You wouldn’t get that in the US. pic.twitter.com/Gu1dAHM9Vx

Hearing Matt Damon heaping praise on Dalkey and saying it's like a fairytale is so pure #MattOnSpin

Matt Damon praises Taoiseach Leo Varadkar as “a bad ass” for going back to work as a doctor part time during the crisis #MattOnSpin
