Matt Damon And Ben Affleck Reveal It Was Kevin Smith Who Saved Good Will Hunting

Ben Affeck and Kevin Smith’s relationship goes way back to the early days of their careers, with Affleck starring in two of Smith’s movies in the ‘90s — 1995’s Mallrats and 1997’s Chasing Amy. While their relationship has had its ups and downs over the years, their bond at one time was undeniable, and Smith even credits himself for coining the “Bennifer” nickname for Affleck and again-girlfriend Jennifer Lopez. It seems Smith played another, even more significant, role in Affleck’s life, as the The Last Duel actor and Damon recently revealed that Smith saved their Oscar-winning film Good Will Hunting.

Matt Damon recently interviewed Ben Affleck for EW, and the two took a deep dive into Affleck’s early career, with Damon pointing out that Kevin Smith and Affleck were frequent collaborators back in the day. Affleck said he liked working with the Silent Bob actor, calling him “funny and smart and charming.” What’s more, Damon said that Smith really deserves the credit for getting Good Will Hunting made:

Kevin also saved Good Will Hunting. This is not a small side note. He is the reason Good Will Hunting got made. We were dead in the water, all the offers had evaporated.
