Matt Damon Happily Wears A Santa Vest On ‘Today’ [PHOTO]

What a sport! Actor Matt Damon showed off his Christmas spirt by wearing a colorful Santa vest during his appearance today on the Today Show. Damon was there to talk about his new film We Bought a Zoo which co-stars Scarlett Johansson.

During filming of the movie, Matt had to confront one of his biggest fears – snakes. The actor told Matt Lauer, “I was not excited to be working with the snakes. I’ve never been a snake guy, and (co-star Scarlett Johansson) was totally cool with it. The second she sensed some trepidation she was like wrapping them around her and putting them on the kids and the kids were laughing at me so I had to kind of man up.”
