Matt Damon earns 3 million for Nespresso ad?

MATT Damon earned $3 million for appearing in a 20-second commercial.

The 43-year-old actor allegedly raked in the impressive sum for joining George Clooney in the new Nespresso ad for a grand total of 20 seconds. That means the Hollywood hunk pocketed a whopping $150,000 for every second he appears in the UK advert, which was directed by Grant Heslov.

A source told the New York Post's Page Six: "Matt is one of the few Hollywood stars to have turned down most ad and product-endorsement deals. But this one came with a huge fee and the fact that he'd be working with people he trusts, his 'Monuments Men' producer Grant Heslov and co-star George Clooney."

George has been the face of the Nestlé coffee brand outside the US since 2006, and the ads famously play upon his irresistible charm with the ladies.

In the new commercial, called 'In the Name of Pleasure', George is snubbed by an attractive woman who would rather drink her coffee alone, deliberately setting a mob of female fans on 'The Descendants' star so he leaves her alone.

In a shorter version of the ad, George then copies the same ploy to enjoy his coffee in peace by alerting the women to the presence of his friend Matt.
