"Matt Damon and I have issues," the 48-year-old talk show host told his audience. "We do not have a good relationship. He's been particularly difficult lately because he has a big movie coming out on Friday Jason Bourne. So we did this once before - we went to therapy together. It didn't go very well, but we decided to try again. Apparently you have to go to therapy more than once for it to work," he said. Their previous therapy session was in September 2015.
In a skit staged during the show, the 'estranged' friends met up for couples counseling and Jimmy Kimmel placed a stack of pillows in between them for his own safety. When the therapist asked why they had decided to go to the session, Jimmy said: "It's court-ordered."
Matt Damon says that Jimmy Kimmel never hosts him on his show. The actor said: "There's thousands and thousands of evenings that I've been just about to go on." In his defense, Jimmy said that he only has an hour and always runs out of time. Matt also reminded him of the February episode when he had to bribe Ben Affleck to sneak him to the show inside his jacket.
The therapy session then went off the rails, when the counselor asked the pair to draw their feelings and then this happened:
