Hollywood superstar Matt Damon lashed out at both the Bush Administration and Tinseltown while visiting France to promote his latest spy flick, "The Bourne Ultimatum," according to French broadcaster RTL.

In interviews for the French glossies Paris Match and Telerama, Damon said "After Iraq, the Bush Administration disgusts me," RTL presenter Thierry Guerrier told listeners Wednesday. Damon also criticized the President's handling of Hurricane Katrina.

And the Oscar- and Golden-Globe winning actor took aim at Hollywood as well, implying that Tinseltown's one-track mind was too depressing for him to stomach.

"I refuse to live there because the only subject of conversation is movies, and it's sad to only have that to talk about that."

Damon owns a home in Miami and has an apartment in New York.
