Speaking about social distancing Matt said, "I think we’ve all got the message now, everybody’s doing the isolation and the social distancing and hand washing, everything we can to mitigate this."

"We’re going to go back to Los Angeles and she’s ( Matt's eldest daughterAlexia) going to come out so we’ll all be together and figure out what the heck we’re going to do. It’s such an odd limbo that we’re all in."

The Ford v Ferrari star admitted he's, "a little worried about going home."

"We don’t have adequate testing so there’s going to be another surge it looks like back home," he said.

"There’s all these areas in America that it hadn’t really penetrated and now, y’know…"

The actor continued, "You've got a president who just goes to the hospital and starts working."

"I mean what a badass, it's just on another level."
