You probably already know Ben Affleck And Matt Damon have been friends since they were kids and grew up together in Cambridge, MA. But how did their relationship go from the playground to Hollywood? Well, the pair first bonded when they were in high school, in part because they had the same interests (specifically a desire to be an actor). After a few years as working actors — including some movies together — the duo collaborated on the “Good Will Hunting” script and the rest of the story.
The film became a smash hit, with rave reviews not only for their performances, but also for the screenplay they wrote together, which won them both an Oscar. Over the years that followed, Affleck and Damon teamed up for even more movies, including “Dogma,” “The Last Duel,” and the next “Air”, that Affleck directs.
The duo have remained close over the years, supporting each other as they both became fathers And sailed weddings. “That friendship has been pivotal and defining and so important to me in my life,” Affleck told Damon in a January 2022 interview with Weekly entertainment. “There were a few critical moments, which are private and which I don’t want to share, but where your support meant so deeply to me that I don’t think I could have succeeded without it.”
Ahead are the nine movies Damon and Affleck have appeared in together, in chronological order.
