Matt Damon, is that really you?
The â€œStillwaterâ€ actor revealed in a lengthy interview with GQ magazine published Wednesday that heâ€™s joined the likes of former President Barack Obama and â€œFriendsâ€ star Jennifer Aniston in operating a secret, private profile on Instagram.
And sleuths on Twitter think theyâ€™ve tracked the so-called finsta down.
Damon gave some clues in the interview.
â€œI have 76 followers and Iâ€™ve done 40 posts since 2013,â€ he told GQ correspondent Chris Heath, explaining he mainly uses the account to keep up to date with friends elsewhere in the world.
Online detectives set to work and soon found the @odamnmatt profile.
Itâ€™s an anagram of Damonâ€™s full name (yes, itâ€™s hardly Pierre Delecto) with the right number of followers and posts. Itâ€™s also followed by a number of verified celebrities including the actors Chris Hemsworth and Pedro Pascal and the director Sam Jones, which would be unusual for a random profile.
In the interview, Damon said heâ€™d never seen the point in social media â€• hence his low-key profile on the platform.
â€œAnd I feel better and better about that decision as time goes on. I understand wanting to be connected to everybody on Facebook, but my life is so full and Iâ€™m connected, really, to everybody I need to be connected to,â€ he said. â€œAnd then Twitter, I just reflexively didnâ€™t believe that my first knee-jerk response to something was necessarily something that should go all over the world.â€
Representatives for Damon did not immediately reply to HuffPostâ€™s request for confirmation about the account. HuffPostâ€™s direct message to @odamnmatt remains unread.
