Matt Damon is obviously not hunting for any goodwill from Sarah Palin.

During an interview with the Associated Press, the Oscar winner doesn't hesitate to express his negative feelings about the Republican V.P. hopeful, saying that the idea of her running the country is not only a "terrifying possiblity," but is like "a really bad Disney movie."

"The hockey mom, you know, 'Oh, I'm just a hockey mom from Alaska,' and she's the president and facing down Vladimir Putin using the folksy stuff she learned at the hockey rink. It's absurd. I don't understand why more people aren't talking about how absurd it is."

But tell us how you really feel, Matt.
