Important news: thanks to a recent Reddit AMA, we now know that Matt Damon has a super special relationship with tacos. You see, after Matt answered some non-taco themed questions, a heroic Reddit user posted this gem of a query, and everything changed: "What are the ingredients of your ideal taco?"

Matt's extremely long answer is as follows:

"The ingredients of my ideal taco, oh my god. Fantastic question. My ideal taco is actually the taco I'm not supposed to have which is the taco we have on taco night at my house. It's the crunchy corn shell with the good meat, just ground beef in there. It's all about the layering. The meats gotta be hot, and the cheese goes on first so that it melts. And then you're gonna get in there with a little bit of tomato and lettuce but not too much cause it's not a salad, it's a taco, and then you're gonna throw some avocado on top and some sour cream and then a bunch of cholula. I don't know if you know what cholula hot sauce is but it's the best. Throw a bunch of cholula on there, maybe squeeze some lime on top, and go to town."

In the words of Reddit user "Pit_of_Death" (edit note: congratulations on your username, friend), "Holy taco, Matt Damon's AMA is the best in awhile....a huge paragraph just on he likes his f*cking tacos. I love this guy."

In the words of another Reddit user, whose username is not nearly as noteworthy, "Your comment on tacos not being salads has likely impacted me more than anything else in the past decade."

But wait, it gets better. Matt also talked about hot dogs, and whether or not they're secretly sandwiches:

"I've never considered a hot dog a sandwich because a hot dog is a hot dog. I mean technically it comes between 2 pieces of bread or one fold it into two, so I guess you can classify it as a sandwich. Then what would you call it, a hot dog sandwich? That's like a hat on a hat so let's just keep it as a hot dog."

Keep answering life's big questions, Matt! Also, if you're dubious about whether or not this was really him due to the sheer weirdness of his taco-themed musings, here's some proof:
