Chris Hemsworth tells Jimmy Kimmel he'll be on his show 'just to upset you' in feud over Matt Damon

Matt Damon and Chris Hemsworth are new BFFs after the pair spent time together Down Under.

Now the friendship has sparked a war of jibes on Twitter after Damon's longtime BFF Ben Affleck told Hemsworth he could 'have' Damon as he's on Team Jimmy Kimmel.

After the ABC late night host came out on Affleck's side, due to his long-running 'feud' with Damon, the Australian star tweeted: Hey @jimmykimmel sounds like you’ve chosen your side. Guess I’m not coming on your show this week. Good luck finding another Avenger named Chris.' 

A few hours later, though, Hemsworth changed his mind, announcing on Twitter: 'You know what, @jimmykimmel ... I’m coming on your show now just to upset you.'
