Matt Damon Stays in Ireland During Coronavirus Lockdown

The 'Bourne Identity' actor decides to stay in a suburb of Dublin and wait out the Covid-19 pandemic in Ireland instead of hurrying back home in the States.

AceShowbiz - Matt Damon is reportedly seeing out the coronavirus pandemic in an affluent suburb of Dublin, Ireland, to the delight of locals.

The Hollywood star flew to the country last month, March 2020 ahead of shooting Ridley Scott's latest historical drama "The Last Duel", and had been pictured frequenting Dalkey businesses before the country went into lockdown to stop the spread of COVID-19.

Locals were still reporting spotting the "Contagion" actor over the weekend, with a picture of the smiling actor carrying a shopping bag while walking down some steps near the sea going viral on social media.

"When all of this has settled, the images of Matt Damon carrying his groceries in Supervalu (Irish shop) bags, as he self-isolates in Dalkey, will be the ones to dig out," journalist Tony Clayton-Lea wrote while sharing the image, which was originally posted by local Jill Downey.

Rumours the "Bourne Identity" star has decided to stay in lockdown in the Emerald Isle have swept the country, and Matt's presence has even gained approval from officials at Ireland's U.S. Embassy.

"Jason Bourne is blessed with super intelligence, situational awareness & linguistic ability," a tweet from their official account reads. "So where else would he see out this pandemic but Dalkey?"

Damon's publicist did not immediately respond to a request for confirmation of his whereabouts.
