The Talented Mr. Rubio: Has Marco officially turned into Matt Damon?
The next time you see Marco Rubio, close your eyes and you’ll hear a familiar voice – it’s eerily reminiscent of Matt Damon’s sublimely creepy turn as the titular “The Talented Mr. Ripley.”
An endless string of tweets has highlighted the similarity ever since the Republican presidential candidate started stumping last year. One Twitter user even suggested her life “hasn’t been the same” since making the discovery.
“Matt Damon’s portrayal of Marco Rubio is Oscar® worthy,” another wrote. And, one offered a theory: ”Marco Rubio and Matt Damon live in FL / Marco looks like a tan Matt / they’ve never appeared together before / Matt is Marco.”
That they both sport boyish grins coupled with crow’s feet brimming above wide-toothed smiles have led some to label them as each other’s doppelgangers.
