The 9 Times BFFs Ben Affleck and Matt Damon Have Been in a Movie Together
You likely already know that Ben Affleck and Matt Damon have been friends since they were kids, growing up together in Cambridge, MA. But how did their relationship progress from the playground to Hollywood? Well, the pair first became close when they were in high school, partially because they had the same interests (especially a desire to head into acting). After a few years as working actors – including some movies together – the duo collaborated on the script for “Good Will Hunting,” and the rest of history.
The movie became a smash success, with rave reviews not just for their performances but also for the screenplay they wrote together, which won them both an Oscar. In the years since, Affleck and Damon have teamed up for even more movies, including “Dogma,” “The Last Duel,” and the upcoming “Air,” which Affleck is directing.
The duo have stayed close through the years, supporting each other as they both became fathers and navigated marriages. “This friendship has been essential and defining and so important to me in my life,” Affleck told Damon in a January 2022 interview with Entertainment Weekly. “There were a few critical times, which are private and I don’t want to share, but where your support was so profoundly meaningful to me that I don’t think I would’ve been able to be successful without it.”
Ahead are the nine movies Damon and Affleck have appeared in together, in chronological order.
