In an interview, Kimmel claimed that he was aware of what happened but had no idea about who did it. In his statement, the multi-hyphenated talk show host said, “You know, I don’t know who that was, but yeah, I heard him. He was loud.”
Kimmel was also asked if he would consider reconciling with the Rounders actor to which he replied,
“I just can’t imagine it happening. I really can’t. I think we have Ben [Affleck] on tomorrow, so we’ll have that, but that will be as close as we get.”

The feud began in 2006 when Kimmel casually joked that he had bumped Damon from an episode of his talk show. In an interview in 2013, the 55-year-old actor said,
“We had a bad show … The guests were bad, and I was feeling pretty bad about myself at the end of the program.”
Kimmel further explained why he cracked the joke on Damon. In his statement, he said it was not an intentional move. He said,
“I decided to say, for the amusement of one of our producers who was standing next to me, ‘I want to apologize to Matt Damon. We ran out of time.’ And he got a kick out of it, the producer, so I just started doing it every night to amuse him.”
Kimmel claimed that Damon was just the name that emerged in his head. There was no hidden purpose or reason behind why he choose to take Damon’s name.
