What Is Matt Damon Doing In This Wedding Photo From 1961?

The photo posted on Reddit has people thinking Matt Damon is a time traveler or that the Hollywood actor himself put up the image to troll the internet.

A Redditor who goes by the name coffeeandtrout has stunned internet users with a wedding photograph of his parents.

Captioned “My parents' wedding day, February 1961. I think my dad looks like Matt Damon,” the image features a man lovingly smiling at his wife. What is surprising is the man is not the popular actor Matt Damon, but somehow looks exactly like him.

Looking at the two photographs placed side by side, one cannot help but notice the uncanny resemblance between the Seattle man and the Hollywood actor. From the eyes to the hairline, the nose and even the ears, most of the men’s features are common are almost identical.



The similarities are so apparent that some Reddit users refuse to believe the picture was of someone other than the actor himself. “I still think it's Matt Damon,” one person wrote. “The DNA test results are in... you are the Matt Damon!!,” and “OP is surely Matt Damon and f****** with us?” another commented.

One internet user even went to the extent of suggesting that the image may be heavily edited.

“I'm not sure this isn't Photoshopped. Or Matt Damon is a time traveler,” he said.

The original posted revealed that his mother, who is also in the picture, passed away last year, and his dad (the Matt Damon look alike) is “still trying to adjust.”

He also clarified that both he and his dad are older than Damon, who is 45. The actor also happens to be 5 feet, 10 inches tall, an inch shorter than the Seattle man.

Some people then went on to ask for a current picture of the original posters’ dad so they could see what Matt Damon would look like when he is old.

“OP, you must post a recent photo of Matt Dam...I mean your dad so we can see what Matt Damon will look like in 50 years time,” a Redditor requested.

Unfortunately, coffeeandtrout hasn’t posted any recent pictures of his dad as yet.
