Matt Damon Just Revealed Why Trump Was Given A Cameo In ‘Home Alone 2’

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Matt Damon revealed that in exchange for the use The Plaza, which Trump owned, in “Home Alone 2: Lost in New York,” the real estate mogul demanded screen time in the film.

Damon conceded that while the demand is relatively typical – some favor in exchange for a role – they usually do not make it to the final cut. Trump’s six-second appearance in the 1992 movie, however, seems to have slipped through the cracks.

This is, unsurprisingly, not the first time that Trump demanded screen time in a film. Damon explained a similar situation regarding Trump from Al Pacino’s 1992 film, “Scent of a Woman.”

“[Director] Martin Brest had to write something in Scent of a Woman — and the whole crew was in on it. You have to waste an hour of your day with a bullsh*t shot: Donald Trump walks in and Al Pacino’s like, ‘Hello, Mr. Trump!’ — you had to call him by name — and then he exits. You waste a little time so that you can get the permit, and then you can cut the scene out. But I guess in Home Alone 2 they left it in.”

Even dating back to the 90s, a fame-hungry Trump wanted a wholly unearned role in exchange for access. Some things never change.
