Los Angeles: Hollywood star Matt Damon is disappointed in President Barack Obama's performance, saying a one-term President with some courage would have been better.

Damon, once a strong supporter of Obama, had campaigned for for him during his run for the top job in 2008 elections, the Hollywood Reporter said quoting a magazine.

"I've talked to a lot of people who worked for Obama at the grassroots level. One of them said to me, 'Never again. I will never be fooled again by a politician,'" Damon told the magazine.

The interview was conducted in New York during the start of the Occupy Wall Street protests.

"If the Democrats think that they didn't have a mandate—people are literally without any focus or leadership, just wandering out into the streets to yell right now because they are so pissed off. Imagine if they had a leader," Damon said.

The actor publicly started criticising Obama in March during a news channel interview.

"I really think he misinterpreted his mandate. A friend of mine said to me the other day, I thought it was a great line, 'I no longer hope for audacity.'"

Damon's criticism has not gone unnoticed by Obama. In May the President used the actor's comments during his speech at the White House Correspondents' Dinner in Washington, DC.

"I've even let down my key core constituency: movie stars. Just the other day, Matt Damon -- I love Matt Damon, love the guy -- Matt Damon said he was disappointed in my performance. Well, Matt, I just saw The Adjustment Bureau, so...right back atcha, buddy."
