Matt Damon explains why Donald Trump appeared in so many ’90s movies

Including that infamous 'Home Alone 2' scene...

Matt Damon has spoken out to make sense of the scene in Home Alone 2: Lost In New York where Donald Trump dangles his tiny meat-mittens above Macauley Culkin.

Damon, soon to reunite on-screen with his film-brother Ben Affleck, revealed that the scene was never originally meant to be in the film.

Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, Matt Damon revealed that whenever film productions requested to film in one of this buildings, Trump, the egomaniac, would insist that a part was written for him in the movie.

“[Director] Martin Brest had to write something in Scent of a Woman – and the whole crew was in on it,” Damon explained: “You have to waste an hour of your day with a bullshit shot: Donald Trump walks in and Al Pacino’s like, “Hello, Mr. Trump!” – you had to call him by name – and then he exits.”

“You waste a little time so that you can get the permit, and then you can cut the scene out. But I guess in Home Alone 2 they left it in.”
