Elysium star on Trayvon Martin, politics and his new film.
Matt Damon knows that when he talks, the world listens. The A-list actor, who continues his tradition of embedding political messages into action films with Elysium, caused a stir when he made critical comments of President Barack Obama last year.
In our exclusive video, Damon gives the President his second-term report card ("we no longer see eye-to-eye," he tells us), and also sounds off on the Trayvon Martin case. Plus, Damon talks his new film Elysium, in which he plays a man trapped on a ghetto-ized earth but desperate to get to the utopian space station called Elysium for a life-saving medical treatment.
Check out our interview with Matt Damon below. Elysium hits theaters on Friday, August 8.
