12 Co-Stars Who Are Friends in Real Life

Ben Affleck, Matt Damon, Good Will Hunting

Ben Affleck and Matt Damon

After co-writing and starring in 1997’s Good Will Hunting, Damon and Affleck have cemented their status as one of Hollywood’s best bromances through several films, co-founding a production company, and generally hanging out together. Among other things, the childhood pals and Boston-area natives — who grew up down the street from each other — now live next to each other as adults. “Matt lives down the street from me like he used to,” Affleck said. “His kids are living with him, the way we used to live with our folks. The only difference is that we have pools.”
