Matt Damon Opens Up About Ben Affleck's Relationship With Jennifer Lopez for 'THR' Cover

Matt Damon heads to work out at his local gym with wife Luciana on Wednesday (September 30) in West Hollywood, Calif.

The 44-year-old Martian star appears on the latest cover of THR where he opens up about his best friend, Ben Affleck.

“There’s nobody who’s more misunderstood,” Matt said. “Ten years ago, the public image of him could not have been farther apart from who he actually is. It was like he was being cast in a role, that he was a talentless kind of meathead, with his whole relationship with Jennifer Lopez.”

Matt continued, “He just got cast as this person that he wasn’t. It was just really painful. It was painful to be his friend, because it wasn’t fair, you know? To my mind, nobody really got him at all. And through his work, he climbed from the bottom of the mountain all the way back up to the top and past where either of us had ever been.”

Also pictured below: Jennifer films scenes for Shades of Blue with her co-star Ray Liotta the day before in Brooklyn, N.Y.

FYI: Matt is wearing J Brand jeans.
