The history of Hollywood is made of great love, but also of great friendships like that between two great movie stars like Ben Affleck And Matt Damon. Their friendship has distant roots that date back to the early eighties. Ben Affleck, in fact, was born in Berkeley – California but at the age of eight he moved with his family to Cambridge, Massachusetts. Here he met a boy two years older than him who lived just two blocks away with whom he used to spend his free time, namely Matt Damon.
Over the years, their friendship has grown so much so that today they are best friends. On the big screen they worked together twice: the first in 1997 in Will Hunting – Rebel genius, a film directed by Gus Van Sant that the two actors wrote together and with which they won the Oscar for Best Original Screenplay, the second in 1999 in Dogma. Among best friends, you know, you make fun of each other even if you are both great stars of the world of cinema.
