Matt Damon and Ben Affleck are still buddies - or at least they will be until Ben reads what Matt had to say about him in an interview. Let's just say that Matt is rather frank about the direction Ben's career has gone since they both won Oscars for writing Good Will Hunting (which we all know was actually 2/3 written by their pal Kevin Smith but whatever). Quoth Damon:
He picked [roles] that in hindsight weren't a good choice. I also think that if you end up on the cover of gossip magazines you're fucked. When people see you all the time there's no mystery about you any more and no one's going to want to go and see your movies.
Oh Matt - easy for you to say when you have a huge hit like The Bourne Ultimatum and poor Ben is just lucky anyone wants to take his picture while he's out playing with Violet in the sandbox. It isn't Ben's fault his dick got all hard for Jennifer Lopez, robbing him of the ability to reason properly and leading to him doing Gigli and Jersey Girl. That Jennifer's got a fine booty - what was Ben supposed to do, not rub his package against it? And Daredevil - clearly, Ben was using a lot of hair-restoration products at the time, which obviously soaked into his skull and short-circuited his judgment. There's no way Ben Affleck in his right mind takes that part. But, we all make mistakes and have to move on from then. And we all sort of hope that our friends will be there to support us - but obviously, Matt, you're more interested in taking shots at Ben in interviews than you are in helping the boy out. So much for that blood oath you guys swore once upon a time. And so much for those hot, sticky nights in your tent, when Ben introduced you to the joys of butt-sex. Sad.
