Matt Damon and Ben Affleck are best friends before they make it big in Hollywood. However, a tabloid claimed that Damon is shutting Affleck out of his life.
Matt Damon and Ben Affleck are among the few celebrities who stick together like brothers. They had known each other before they became popular actors.
Radar Online claimed that Damon is replacing his BFF. However, one should take the report with a pinch of salt because there is no evidence supporting their falling out. In fact, Affleck even joked about it.
Matt Damon banned Ben Affleck from his life
In April 2018, Radar Online published a report claiming that Matt Damon was officially shutting Ben Affleck out of his life. The Martian actor allegedly decided to cut ties with Affleck due to the latter’s string of controversies.
Affleck’s issues reportedly included his connection to Harvey Weinstein and the cheating rumors on his ex-wife Jennifer Garner.
Damon is reportedly not just ditching Affleck. The Jason Bourne star is replacing his BFF with Thor actor Chris Hemsworth.
Damon ditching Affleck rumors not true
Gossip Cop debunked the rumors alleging that Matt Damon is ending his friendship with Ben Affleck.
Damon and Chris Hemsworth are indeed friends. However, the Ocean’s Eleven star doesn’t need to end his friendship with Affleck to make room for Hemsworth. One can have many friends.
Also, Affleck just laughed about the issue. In fact, he retweeted a report from Gossip Cop and taunted the Extraction star to have Damon because he was team Jimmy Kimmel.

Damon and Jimmy Kimmel feud
Matt Damon and Jimmy Kimmel are among the celebrities with a long-standing comedic feud. The two have been attacking each other over the years.
Just recently, Kimmel made a big announcement on his show, and Damon crashed it when he appeared behind the host wearing a robe.
Shortly after that, Kimmel’s wife, Molly McNearney, entered the room wearing a bathrobe too. She came from the same place where Damon emerged.
“I’m sorry I had to see that. I am going to get a divorce,” Kimmel said.
Damon and Kimmel’s feud is fake. The two are even close friends. That’s why they are very comfortable with their bickering.
Thus, Ben Affleck doesn’t need to choose between Damon and Kimmel. The three celebrities are good friends.
Affleck and Damon’s friendship over the years
Ben Affleck and Matt Damon have a good solid friendship. Both have spoken up about their tight bond in previous interviews.
“Ben Affleck and I actually had a joint bank account, and the bank account was money that we’d made doing local commercials and we could only use it on trips to New York to audition,” Damon told CNN in 2011. “If one kid had enough for a candy bar, then the candy bar was bought and split in half — that’s just the way it’s been.”
Affleck said the same thing about his friendship with Damon.
“Matt and I had identical interests, so whether we ended up successful or making hot dogs at Dodgers games, we knew we’d end up doing the same sort of thing. The remaining friends part was pretty consistent. We saw each other all the time, we talked on the phone all the time,” Affleck told Interview magazine about Damond.
