Celebrities - Democrats or Republicans?

28 of 42: Matt Damon donated $4,600 to Barack Obama's 2008 presidential campaign and has supported other Democratic causes. However, he slammed the U.S. leader in a December 2011 interview with Elle magazine.

'I've talked to a lot of people who worked for Obama at the grassroots level,' Damon was quoted as saying. One of them said to me, 'Never again. I will never be fooled again by a politician. You know, a one-term president with some balls who actually got stuff done would have been, in the long run of the country, much better.'

'If the Democrats think that they didn't have a mandate - people are literally without any focus or leadership, just wandering out into the streets to yell right now because they are so pissed off. Imagine if they had a leader.'

Damon is also one of several 'liberal' celebrities parodied in the 2004 puppet film 'Team America: World Police.'
