The Boston-born actors appeared together, looking dapper as ever, as their latest film together was screened at the iconic film festival.
The boys are back in town! Ben Affleck, 49, and Matt Damon, 50, looked incredibly handsome as they appeared at a photo call at the Venice Film Festival on Friday September 10. The famous buddies were both at the annual movie event with their latest film together: The Last Duel. The childhood friends turned movie stars were all smiles as they posed together on the red carpet!
Both the Boston boys cleaned up nicely for the event! Ben rocked a black suit with a white button-down shirt. Matt sported a gray blazer with a black t-shirt and pants for the outing. The duo arrived in-style, posing on a boat, as many of the Venice Film Festival attendees do. While out on the water, both of the Good Will Hunting stars wore sunglasses, as they posed for photographers.
Both of the actors have appeared in a ton of movies together. Ben and Matt perhaps most famously wrote and co-starred in Good Will Hunting together in 1997, but the duo have stayed close and collaborated on a ton of occasions. The Last Duel is only their latest venture in co-writing and co-starring. The pair worked on the screenplay with Nicole Holofcener, via IMDb. Blade Runner director Ridley Scott directed the film, which also stars Adam Driver and Jodie Comer. “King Charles VI declares that Knight Jean de Carrouges settle his dispute with his squire by challenging him to a duel,” the movie’s description said.
The Venice Film Festival is only the latest time that the two stars spent time together this summer. The Martian star was photographed hanging out with Ben and his girlfriend Jennifer Lopez, 52, at a Los Angeles beach on August 8. After spending time with the couple, Matt explained that he wants nothing but the best for his friend and was rooting for the couple. “They’re both great. I just want for their happiness. They seem pretty happy right now,” he said in an interview with The Carl Watson Show in August.
