Actor Matt Damon has insisted he has never used a gay slur “in my personal life” after being criticized for saying he’d only recently “retired” the word.

The Hollywood star told The Sunday Times his daughter had rebuked him for using what she called the “f-slur for a homosexual” in a joke “months ago”.

In a follow-up statement, the Oscar winner stressed that he had never used the insult against anyone off-screen.

“This conversation with my daughter was not a personal awakening,” he said.

“I do not use slurs of any kind.”
