Two beavers are better than one.
They’re twice the fun.
I don’t know why my mind traveled instantly to this song but, first of all, thanks Robin Sparkles, secondly, what actually defines the much repeated, heavily prolific gossip material the world mentions as Hollywood Couples? I have no idea. But, I do know there’s a ton of Hollywood pros that work even better in pairs. Why is this a thing on the blog? I have no idea. But, I do know that if you’re looking for a way to burn some free time you just found it.
Our first Hollywood Couple had to, it just had to be Matt & Jimmy. No, not Matt & Ben, partly because I feel we’ve had our dose of Matt & Ben affairs around here lately, also because I found out during my last vacations with some friends that apparently not everyone knows about these two, unlike Matt & Ben. Everyone knows Matt & Ben. And I just feel like you’d be missing out on one of the longest, funniest, awesomest bits on the history of talk shows.
Matt Damon and Jimmy Kimmel share a well documented hatred for each other and they keep it up so brilliantly fresh you just can’t wait for Damon’s next movie, because well, it’s Matt Damon and also because these two will for sure put their brains to work on how to get Damon on Jimmy Kimmel Live without actually having him as a guest. This thing has been going on for more than a decade and there’s not one disappointed fan in the community. Besides, they actually keep it going outside the show. I dare you to go look for interviews in which they talk about each other, no one breaks character. It’s like the perfect marriage, just, better. One can only hope they keep it going forever.
Here goes a playlist with 39 of Jimmy Kimmel Live’s Matt & Jimmy bits, chronologically ordered. It’s glorious. Go for it.
