It is no secret, that Matt Damon and Ben Affleck have been best of friends since day one.

Ben Affleck is a good-looking guy for sure without a doubt, but his best friend being the ring leader of their high school theatre group, claimed that wasn’t the way he would get the ticket to get into the school theatre. Thus, Damon was compelled to bring him back on track and explain to him the rules once again. He continued by saying,

“You went straight douche right away. ‘You’re not gonna get by on your looks,’ And we were both like, 5 foot 2.”” 

Affleck would later end up listening to his friend which would eventually lead him to getting accepted by the theater group. Furthermore, he would also become a bit famous in his high school as he would go on to star in an after-school special.

Ben Affleck’s advice on living together with Matt Damon

Ben Affleck’s advice on living together with Matt Damon, is to avoid it at all cost. After Good Will Hunting, the best friend took their relationship to the next step by sharing a bank account and buying a party mansion as their last resort before going bankrupt. When the Batman actor graced The Late Late Show with his presence back in April, he revealed quite a lot about their friendship and gave the fans a little sneak peek as to what it is like to live with the Jason Bourne star. He said,

“I would not suggest living with [Damon],—Came home one day, me and [Casey]. Matt’s there in his shorts and his T-shirt playing the ’92 Sega hockey game in the middle of what was the living room, just surrounded by concentric circles of garbage,”
