I never hear much about the two of them hanging out.
Was this relationship a sham?
Matt was bearding for Ben all along.
[quote]Was this relationship a sham?
No, but they were single and starving when they first met. Now they're married, have seven kids between them, and live in different cities. Married fortysomething guys don't have much "bro time" with their friends.
The still jack off together on skype when the kids and the fraus are asleep.
Ben is jealous of Matt's success, plus his wifey has done everything she can to split them apart - jealous thing. And Ben got tired of the balding jokes Matt kept coming up with. Although I'd love to hear what he has to say about the latest batch of burnt yarn he's sporting for his big new movie.
Ben is balding less than Matt. What's the big joke?
Ben and Matt were childhood friends in Cambridge, Massachusetts before they went to Hollywood. Their friendship is real. They still get together occasionally, such as the fundraiser they hosted along with John Krasinski for Elizabeth Warren for Senate.
TY R3&R7. Ben and Matt are now live in the same neighborhood. Jennifer hasn't tried to pull their friendship apart. Some of you really believe that?
They children attend each others birthday parties and the do get together on other occasions. You grow up have families. They are still close but they aren't starving frat boy actors anymore.
They and their wives still go on vacations together.
Wasn't there a rumor that they liked to hire hookers and watch each other having sex?
If that wasn't a rumor R10, we should start it now.
Ben has a very successful career now as a director as well as actor... Argo is getting raves.
We rim every other Tuesday
What with the bad hair plugs, caps, douchebag tattoos, total lack of cool, fake screenwriting credits for that dumb movie they "wrote" in addition to their preening activism for a blatantly corrupt political system, does it really fucking matter?
I always thought that Affleck was biseuxal and that Damon was gay and they both had sex with each other which is pretty obvious.
What makes it obvious, r15, the fact they are both attractive and have been friends for a long time?
I know a lot of men who are very attractive, have been friends for many years, and have never had sex with each other.
And they happen to be gay.
what does BFF stand for please?
butt fuckin' fairies, r17.
BFF = best friends forever
I just think that Matt and Ben have had sex with each other.
Yes it's possible for two bisexual or two gay men or a bi and gay man to be friends and not have sex but I don't think Matt and Ben are purely platonic friends even if they're not hetero.
Matt doesn't seem really into the Hollywood scene.. did he like JLo
I recently read in some gossip blog that Matt was relocating to LA from his home in FLA. He's selling the FLA place to be closer to his BFF Ben. That way his daughters and Ben's daughters can grow up and be friends just like their dads. Awwwwwww!
Matt lives in NY and Ben in LA.
They are both bottoms but they both still finger-bang each other
"did he like JLo"
R21, from what I read, Matt was not thrilled with JLo or Affleck's relationship with her. I read that Matt avoided Ben and the media circus surrounding them during his time with her. During the time she was dating Ben Matt even made some sort of comment, apparently annoyed that JLo was late at some function and acting like a diva, saying "Has JLo's fat ass arrived yet?" when she arrived.
I've seen him get in arguments with people on TV, and it wasn't acting. he was serius. I like Matt Damon, but I think he can be a real asshole sometimes. WIth Affleck, he seems kind of phoney.
R34, originally he shaved it completely for a role. He recently shaved it again for re-shoots.
Matt already has the world record for tolerating Ben. Does he really need to suffer any further?
I want Ben deep inside me very badly.
R35, Damon looks like his hair is seriously struggling now. He may need to start borrowing Ben's plugs.
They both look like they have B.O.
Wonder what Ben gets up to with the Damon butt ?
They're into scat? Ew....
Wouldn't be hot if David Muir was interviewing both of them and then they all took off their clothes and started making out?
I think Matt and Ben did their share of experimenting in their youth. But now I believe Matt is telling the truth. It is consistent with his life (no sightings in bath spa and similar ...). Needless to say that I hope to be wrong.
No way Ben was so handsome and slender and strong in his youth. Matt was a geeky, nerd, aids boy.
There's no way someone as hot as Affleck would settle for that.
They live SO close - Matt's new house in Pacific Palisades is exactly across the street from Ben's driveway / gate.they could not BE any closer. Hmmmm ?
You can see Matt wanting to tongue kiss Benny but Ben saying, "Dude, not even when we're high. I have nothing against fags, but c'mon look at me, I could do SO much better."
Has Matt commented on Ben's win yet?
It's got to be so bizarre how Hollywood has rallied to Ben at what a huge snub him not getting a director nom was, and meanwhile no one even gave a shit about Matt's fracking movie that he actually thought people were going to like.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
