Matt Damon has his revenge. The actor, who's been the butt of a long-running joke on Jimmy Kimmel's ABC talk show in the US, took over the programme on Thursday night and left a bound and gagged Jimmy to watch as a succession of stars stopped by.

For years, Jimmy has joked at the end of his show that he ran out of time and was unable to bring Matt on as a guest. In a show-long joke on Thursday, Matt played a kidnapper who tied up Jimmy and hosted the show himself.

His guests included Nicole Kidman, Amy Adams, Reese Witherspoon, Sheryl Crow and, in the cruellest cut of all, Jimmy's ex-girlfriend Sarah Silverman.

Having financial security will allow you to develop your creative talents. It's important for you to exercise your imagination at every opportunity. Letting it lay dormant is like refusing to harvest a thriving crop. Stop wasting the valuable gifts you've been given.More
