Ben Affleck Talks Matt Damon Friendship

Ben Affleck holds onto his daughter Violet‘s hand as they leave the Brentwood Country Mart on Saturday afternoon (September 15) in Santa Monica, Calif.

The 40-year-old actor’s wife Jennifer Garner happened to be at the same mart earlier that morning with their daughter Seraphina.

Ben recently talked to Details magazine about his friendship with Matt Damon.

“It’s interesting. [During the Good Will Hunting] time, I didn’t even realize that it was being used to promote a movie. I was 25, and I was naïve enough to think, “Well, Entertainment Weekly is just really interested in this!” And, you know, we really were friends and roommates, and we did write the movie together,” Ben said.

“I started to realize that people conflated us, or particularly me, with the characters. People assumed that I was the amiable, dim-witted friend, right? [Laughs] Which wasn’t exactly what I was going for! Matt and I have had a friendship for 25 years. We don’t get wound up about that stuff. You learn to roll your eyes,” he added.
