She’s one of the most popular influencers in Australia, but Rebecca Judd has revealed she was dumped from a booking in favour of a much bigger star.
The model and wife of AFL icon Chris Judd revealed on her KIIS 1011 show 3pm Pick Up that she was on a holiday in Byron Bay in northern NSW with her family when she booked a beautiful accommodation for a photo shoot.
Judd, 37, intended to photograph a series of looks from her activewear line, Jaggad, but at the last minute the venue notified her they had to bump her booking for a “big” one.
“We booked out this amazing place, it was an awesome location out in the hinterlands for the day and then we got bumped from the location because they’d taken this big booking,” she said.
“This place was quite pricey. And I thought, who could stay in a house like this for such a long time?
“On the plane on the way home I was talking to somebody and I said what our plans had been and he said he knew who had bumped me.
“I got bumped for Matt Damon.”
While Bec didn’t reveal when it happened, Damon stayed in Byron Bay and rented out a mega-mansion next door to his Hollywood best mate, Australian actor Chris Hemsworth, in February last year for several months.
The star of the popular Jason Bourne franchise, which streams on Binge, classifies the beach hotspot as a second home for himself and his family, who are close with the Hemsworth brood.
