Actor Matt Damon revealed this week that in the past when filming a movie at a Trump property, it was required that writers add a scene featuring Trump, which Damon said was a waste of time because these scenes were nearly always thrown out during post-production.
"You have to waste an hour of your day with a bullshit shot: Donald Trump walks in… 'Hello, Mr. Trump!' you had to call him by name – and then he exits," the "Bourne" film series star told the Hollywood Reporter.
Damon had been asked if he had ever met Trump, to which he replied he had not, and went on to tell the publication about the policy Trump enforced on with filmmakers using one of his properties.
"You waste a little time so that you can get the permit, and then you can cut the scene out."
Damon also pointed out that there is at least one example of the required write-in – in the film "Home Alone 2" – where the scene featuring Trump was left in the final product.
