One of Barack Obama's most prominent supporters during the 2008 election, Matt Damon is now one of the President's most outspoken critics.

Days after the actor expressed disappointment in Obama to Piers Morgan, he gave an interview to Great Britian's The Independent in which he went into greater detail over what he considers missed opportunities on the commander-in-chief's part.

Barack Obama Debt Speech

"I think he's rolled over to Wall Street completely," Damon said. "The economy has huge problems. We still have all these banks that are too big to fail. They're bigger and making more money than ever. Unemployment at 10 percent? It's terrible."

Matt Damon believes the Democrats "squandered" a chance to "stand up for things."

So, will Damon vote Republican in 2012? No, he joked: "I just got a 3 percent tax cut!"

But then he turned serious again, expounding on one of Obama's more controversial compromises with conservatives:

"Do you think I'm going to start a small business with that money? You're out of your mind if you think so. I'm going to put it in the bank. So is every other guy that makes the kind of money I make. I don't think that's what's best for the country. I think a stronger middle class makes for a stronger country."

Ouch. In better news for the President, many people still like his wife a lot.

With one word, Barack Obama lost the enthusiastic support of one of his most famous supporters last night.

Asked by Piers Morgan if he's happy with the way Obama has been running the country,"Matt Damon simply replied: "No." He then elaborated:

"I really think he misinterpreted his mandate. I no longer hope for audacity."

The Adjustment Bureau star cited education as one area in which he believes the President has failed.

"The idea that we're testing kids and we're tying teachers salaries to how kids are performing on tests, that kind of mechanized thinking has nothing to do with higher order. We're training them, not teaching them."

In 2008, Damon often appeared at fundraisers for the Democratic candidate and hit the campaign trail on Obama's behalf. Watch him criticize the Commander-in-Chief in the following video:

Stella Zavala Damon was born on Wednesday! 

Matt and Luciana Damon have their hands full!

All is well on the home front, too: "Mom and baby are both healthy," a representative for the Hereafter star said this weekend. "The whole family is thrilled."

Matt, 40, and Luciana, 35, wed in 2005 and have two children – Isabella, 4, and Gia, 2. Luciana also has a daughter, Alexia, from a previous marriage.

Congratulations to both on the new addition to the family!

Matt Damon and his wife Luciana are expecting another baby.

His rep tells Us Weekly simply that, "Everyone is excited."

Matt and Luciana Damon are already parents to Isabella, 3, and Gia, 21 months. Luciana also has a daughter, Alexia, 11, from a previous marriage.

Damon, who quietly wed Luciana at New York's City Hall in December 2005, has credited his kids with keeping him grounded in Hollywood.

“Having kids is really helpful," he said. "They kind of disabuse you of the notion of your greatness pretty quickly. There's also a routine that you get into with children that precludes you from going back to your single days."

He said he hopes his daughters take after their mother. "My wife is a very wise and a very thoughtful person. Hopefully, they'll inherit that," Damon said.

"From me, I hope they'll inherit a sense of social justice and a desire to continue some of those programs that I'm involved with. Maybe not those exact ones, but hopefully, something to further social justice."

They could certainly do worse for dads. Congrats to Matt and Luciana!

A rumor that actor Matt Damon is dead after reportedly being found in the desert over the web last night, but fortunately (and not surprisingly) it is false.

Some of the Matt Damon is dead rumors state TMZ as reporting the death. Not only is the rumor false, the attribution of the story to TMZ is also false.

A Bourne Leader?

The Academy Award-winning actor is not dead, but is in Venice, attending the Venice Film Festival and giving interviews about his new film, The Informant.

Yet somehow, by last night, Matt Damon was dead, at least according to publications who think it's the height of comedy to get people riled up like this.

No need to say goodbye to Matt Damon. He's not dead!

According to one incarnation of the rumor (via Bollywood 91), Matt Damon wrote on his blog that he was going to the desert to search for gold and adventure.

The rumor is fairly detailed in its construction, noting that Damon realizes what he's doing is dangerous. Add in a bogus TMZ sourcing and voila, death rumor.

Also disturbingly and randomly, albeit less detailed, is the supposed death of Dancing with the Stars winner and Olympic gymnast Shawn Johnson last night.

She's fine too. Glad you are still with us, Shawn!

Is someone trying to dig up good gossip on Tom Brady?

Someone besides us (we really just care about Gisele Bundchen pics)?

The New England Patriots star, actor Matt Damon and various other celebs are apparently the targets of numerous, superfluous searches conducted by law enforcement authorities across the state of Massachusetts.

Officials privy to the audit that turned up the head-scratching statistics told the paper that law-enforcement officers performed 968 searches on Brady.

Inquiries into his home address, gun-ownership record, driver's license info, Social Security number and other stats on the QB were conducted.

Thomas Brady

Other high-profile types who were also the target of "repeated searches and queries" included Damon, James Taylor, and Boston Celtics star Paul Pierce.

The verdict: The Massachusetts Criminal Offender Record Information system is highly flawed and is vulnerable to use "without any apparent work-related justification," according to state Auditor A. Joseph DeNucci's findings.

Really? After 968 searches? You think?

On the flip side, the system is utilized 13 million times a month, so the total number of inappropriate searches is relatively minuscule - and who wouldn't want to see if there were random celebrity mug shots kicking around somewhere?

"I'm fairly comfortable in saying that 99 percent do not misuse the system," executive director Curtis Wood told the Boston Globe.
