Matt Damon Confirms He And Ben Affleck Both Cried Filming Good Will Hunting (And Why)


Ben Affleck and Matt Damon make quite the dynamic duo, recently writing and starring in the well-received film The Last Duel. Through the years both stars have established, celebrated careers in Hollywood. The Last Duel wasn’t their first writing project that they underwent together though, as the 1997 film Good Will Hunting acted as both their writing debut and their first Oscar win at just 25 and 27 years old, respectively. While winning one of the most revered film awards Hollywood has to offer may be grounds for some tears shed, Damon has confirmed that the two filmmakers actually cried while filming Good Will Hunting, and what exactly started the flow of tears. 

In an interview with GQ, Matt Damon reveals that it didn’t take long at all for the water works to creep up on him when filming Good Will Hunting. The Stillwater star says that it happened when both he and Ben Affleck were behind the camera watching Robin Williams and Stellan Skarsgård work their magic, and the emotions came from watching those huge Hollywood names act in a film they wrote. Here it is in Damon’s own words:

Sometimes those moments sneak up on you. And that was another one of those moments we never thought was going to arrive. To see not only actors, but those actors, saying the stuff that we wrote, was like…fuck. Just, I guess, a mixture of joy and disbelief. And relief. And gratitude. That would probably be it. That was a really nice moment. I’m not ashamed to say it.
