Damon Targeted By Impostor
MATT DAMON was targeted by an impostor over the Christmas holidays (09).
The Hollywood actor was rumoured to have spent New Year (09-10) on a cruise in Australia with his family, after a man claiming to be Damon fooled fans in Sydney - signing autographs and enjoying VIP service.
But Damon is adamant he wasn't in Australia over the holidays - and puts the sightings of him down to a lookalike who has been impersonating Down Under.
However, Damon isn't worried by the reports - because he often hears of impostors using his name.
He says, "That was somebody pretending to be me. It happens. My wife used to work in a bar (in Miami, Florida) and the bartender called us once, saying, 'There's a guy in here who looks like you and says he is you.' There was some guy sitting in the VIP section getting free champagne."
