Ben Affleck and Matt Damon on "Air"

  • Опубліковано 18 бер 2023
  • Ben Affleck and Matt Damon were kids when they met in Cambridge, Massachusetts; they were Hollywood rookies when they won an Oscar for their screenplay for "Good Will Hunting." And now, in their joint production company's first feature, they're back together on screen in "Air," the based-on-true-events story of how Nike created a basketball shoe around a talented but untried NBA rookie, Michael Jordan. Correspondent Tracy Smith talks with Affleck and Damon about their decades-long friendship, and about collaborating on a story of how heaven and earth were moved to sell a sneaker.

    I LOOOOVE the idea of actors equity. It's time the team that make movies happen see royalties and what they deserve to.

    Creating a production company together that aims to address the disparity in artist compensation is to be commended. Wishing these guys continued success!

  • @abadstroller

    Seeing these two guys together never fails to make me smile.

    Love these guys.

  • @longlivedemocracy756

    Don’t usually see Ben so animated. The movie looks good. Definitely plan to go see it. These guys have not only survived Hollywood, but flourished. Kudos

    “If you love the people at work…you probably have a pretty good life.” Spot on by Ben!

    Two good men, two nice men, two mentally gifted men, two very good actors, and two good friends for life. I like both and have enjoyed the majority of their movies. We need more Afflecks and Damon's.

  • @mohammadshahadathhossain981

    Giving the film crews a bigger share of pie than normal making the production's objective so great! Go Damon, Go Affleck!

  • @RyanHLee-nc7hg

    It's so important to see friendships like this. I think back to people like Jack Benny and George Burns, and later, Mel Brooks and Carl Reiner, and Bob Newhart and Don Rickles, and Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau. These friendships really do stand the test of time and get deeper as the years go on. They give me hope for the future with my own friends.

  • @antoniobudelecan6077

    It's great to see Ben doing well. I'm happy for him.

  • @MadisonStreetBoys

    Love these guys. 7 Oscar nominations in 25 years between them, a dozen huge franchises, and wins for Best Screenplay and Best Picture - not even acting - overall. Real, true, committed filmmakers. In it for the long-haul. Look at how both spoke about the movie business a decade ago. Two decades ago. Three decades ago. They saw it coming and stuck with it through all the changes, still focusing on making great stuff together. I wish we had more of that.

  • @pointblack808

    No one can deny that what these guys did is remarkable. One was 25, the other 27 when they wrote one of the best scripts Hollywood had ever seen. A tour de force, a stroke of genius from two creative minds. Even if they've reached their peak at that moment, you gotta give respect where respect is due.

  • @alfblue4734

    Its so cool to see these guys still friends after all these years!!!

  • @mhaze210

    I just saw the movie and it made me feel really good when I left the theater and have been thinking about it all day. Now I've just watched several interviews with them and it just feels so uplifting.

  • @cooljt1998

    It’s crazy they both had such different but prolific careers since GWH….Damon was a box office force and afflack became a critically acclaimed director

  • @karendobbs8153

    Ben and Matt are so real and down to earth, unlike so many Hollywood actors. They’re great family men, great actors and they have such a rare friendship, and such respect for each other. It’s always so good to see them together. I can’t even imagine how anyone could have anything bad to say about either of them.

  • @jennywu73

    This is the Ben I’m used to seeing. His love of producing films brings him so much joy.

    One of the best friendships in the industry. Happy for them both.

  • @earnestsmith9696

    Matt and Ben have proven over the years that “friends are better than money”

  • @thecreativeprocess-pureima3389

    Great to see them both telling stories that matter and reflect and celebrate the human spirit.
