Few well-constructed fake beefs have been as prosperous as the one between current quote king Matt Damon and confirmed video game loverJimmy Kimmel, a feud perpetuated by Jimmy's penchant for usually mentioning Matt as often as five times a week from the comfort of his ABC throne. Thankfully, the two finally seem prepared to set aside the faux beefery for good, a move likely prompted by Matt strategically crashingJimmy Kimmel Live! during a segment centered on the recent news that Mars definitely has water:

The very special episode, playfully dubbed "Hate Night," also included a quick bout of couples therapy. "Seriously, what are you doing here?" Kimmel asks a less-than-enthused Damon. "You said I could be on the show earlier when we were in therapy," reveals a bewildered Damon. As these things often go, Kimmel then hit everyone with the footage.

"I imagine it sucks to be him," Kimmel tells Dr. Kim Canter Burger​. "Look at him. And he’s trying to be a movie star?" Damon then claims he's been waiting in a dressing room for at least a decade, forever chasing the promise of an actual appearance on Jimmy Kimmel's show. "I try to get him on the show," Kimmel responds. "We only have a one-hour show every night, ok?"

Apologies to Matt Damon. We ran out of beef.
