Matt Damon on Ben Affleck: “There’s Nobody Who’s More Misunderstood”

Matt believes the media portrayal of Ben has been nothing like the person he really is.

M att is defending his long time buddy Ben, who is currently going through a divorce from Jennifer Garner after reportedly cheating on her with the nanny. Matt thinks people have it all wrong because his public image isn’t who he really is and he thinks the media have given him a persona that isn’t anything like him in reality. Matt explained:

“There’s nobody who’s more misunderstood. Ten years ago, the public image of him could not have been farther apart from who he actually is. It was like he was being cast in a role, that he was a talentless kind of meathead, with his whole relationship with Jennifer Lopez. He just got cast as this person that he wasn’t. It was just really painful. It was painful to be his friend, because it wasn’t fair, you know? To my mind, nobody really got him at all. And through his work, he climbed from the bottom of the mountain all the way back up to the top and past where either of us had ever been.”

Sharing his opinion on presidential candidate Donald Trump, Matt says Donald’s idea to put up a wall to block people out of the country is just crazy:

“I’ve never met him. But when people are talking about putting a wall up, I just can’t take them seriously. I can’t. It seems so un-American. We have people running for the highest elected office talking about putting a wall up that would keep my wife and her family out of the country, you know?”

Matt reveals that he didn’t think he’d find a soul mate because when he met his now wife, he had given up on the idea and though marriage might not be for him:

“I remember thinking, in my early 30s, that I wouldn’t [get married], you know? I didn’t think it was going to happen for me. My brother found his soul mate very young; he’d just turned 26 when they were married. He’d been married for 10 years by the time I even met my wife, and I looked at this really happy, wonderful marriage and kind of went, ‘I guess that’s not going to happen for me.’ And then it did.”

He feels protective of his children and believes the role of fatherhood has changed the way he lives now:

“I heard once, you spend all of this time trying to protect your heart, and then you have kids, and it’s like you put it in their bodies and send them out into the world, and you can’t possibly know everything that comes with that. It’s a very, very different way to be in the world.”
