Matt Damon's Ocean's 8 cameo cut from final edit

Matt Damon's planned cameo in 'Ocean's 8' was belatedly canned by the makers of the movie.

The 47-year-old actor previously starred in the male-dominated trilogy and he'd been invited to make a brief cameo in the new, Gary Ross-directed film - but Matt's efforts ultimately did not make the final cut.

No official explanation for the omission has yet been given, but it could be linked to his controversial remarks about the #MeToo movement, which encouraged women who have experienced abuse and harassment to tell their story.

As many as 28,000 people signed a petition earlier this year calling for Matt to be taken out of the movie in light of his comments.
