“A few years ago a bunch of us did this movie called Contagion, which we’ve noticed is is creeping its way back up on the charts on iTunes for obvious reasons, given what we’re all going through right now,” Matt says.

“In the movie I played a guy who was immune to the hypothetical virus that was spreading around the world. That was a movie. This is real life. I have no reason to believe I’m immune to COVID-19 and neither do you, no matter how young you are. This is a new virus. It’s gonna take some times for our bodies and our doctors to understand it and understand new ways to protect us.”

“In the movie Contagion, I played an epidemiologist trying to stop the spread of a hypothetical virus. To prepare for the role, I spent time with some of the best public health professionals in the world. And what was one of the most important things they taught me? Wash your hands like your life depends on it because right now, in particular, it just might,” Kate said.

“So if you’re feeling overwhelmed, a little bit powerless at the moment, here’s something we can all do to make a difference. And it doesn’t require a medical degree, or a microscope, or a ton of knowledge.”

Matt Damon Explains How Ben Affleck Saved Him From Getting Beat Up in High School (Video)

Matt Damon joined Conan on Monday night (November 4) and recalled the the last fight he’d been in, and how his longtime friend Ben Affleck came to his rescue.

According to the 49-year-old Jason Bourne actor, the trouble started when he and a group of neighborhood kids went to play football on Cambridge Common during a snow day in the mid ’80s. At that point, Damon and Affleck were both students at Cambridge Rindge & Latin.

“I mouthed off to this kid that I knew, but he was like your [Conan’s] height, like 6-foot-6, and I might have been 5-3 at the time, and I said something,” Damon said. “I’d scored on him or something, and I don’t know, I said something but he came for me. And it was like this mountain of a guy came at me and I was like, ‘Oh man.’ So before I knew it, it was like I was on the ground, he was above me, and I was like, ‘This is gonna be bad.’”

“It was right then that little 5-foot-2 Ben Affleck tackled this dude off of me, like out of nowhere,” Damon said. “I was, like, a junior and he was, like, a freshman, and he tackled this kid off of me, literally at the risk of his own life.”

“But I remember that was a big moment,” Damon concluded, “going like, ‘This guy, he will put himself in a really bad spot for me.’ Like, ‘This is a good friend to have.’”
