There may be a deeper reason Donald Trump has had so many movie and TV cameos.

According to Matt Damon, one of the requirements for a filmmaker to shoot at a Trump-owned building was to give the businessman (and now president) a role in the film being shot.

“The deal was that if you wanted to shoot in one of his buildings, you had to write him in a part,” Damon told The Hollywood Reporter.

However, not all Trump cameos made it into their respective films, as it turns out.

“Martin Brest had to write something in Scent of a Woman—and the whole crew was in on it,” the actor continued. “You have to waste an hour of your day with a bulls— shot: Donald Trump walks in and Al Pacino’s like, ‘Hello, Mr. Trump!’—you had to call him by name—and then he exits.”

“You waste a little time so that you can get the permit, and then you can cut the scene out. But I guess in Home Alone 2 they left it in,” Damon added.

Along with the iconic ’90s comedy film, Trump also appeared in movies and television shows like The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Sex and the City, 54, Zoolander and The Little Rascals.
