Sorry, Michael Moore. You tried your best.

The filmmaker recently praised actor Matt Damon for standing up for his political beliefs and called upon the star to launch a presidential campaign.

A photographer recently questioned Damon on whether he has any plans to enter the political world, prompting the actor to reply: "No sir!"

Damon said: "I think there are probably better choices out there."

The Oscar winner supported President Barack Obama in the 2008 elections, but recently admitted he has been disappointed by Obama.

Damon also attended a teachers' rally last month to support changes to standarized testing and tore into a critic of teacher tenure.

Political opinions aside, he will next star with Gwyneth Paltrow and Marion Cotillard in Contagion, which opens on September 9.
