Ben Affleck Talks Matt Damon Friendship

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.

    Why they don’t go together. Each of them with one girl to the same place in the same day…isn’t strange?

    That make no sense, how is it divide tasks when your going to the same place that making extra work. If your going to divide tasks you would each go to different places.

    Re Ben Affleck
    .
    Why does he talks angry every tjme? He regret about his life with JLo BUT his past was his own doing. If I remember it right he was deliriously happy being with her. Their PDA’s were very “public” & intense. He knew & loved it..
    .
    IMO, Ben is not yet over with his past. He hasn’t moved on despite having a family of his own.
    .
    He should be thankful that he found a new career being a director. However, a bit success he is gaining should not go to his head. He comes up self-absorbed & seems putting blame on others on what has happened to him in the past. It seems he doesn’t want to be responsible to his actions. He wants to put blame on JLO & the press only and NEVER him.
    .
    I cannot reconcile his image as an angry, conceited man to that of his being a “humanitarian” There is something “off” about this guy. The way he handles himself as an artist & as a head of the family, I will NOT be surprise if another “lowest moment of his life” would happen in the future.
