Today We Learned: ’Good Will Hunting’ Script Has a Surprise Gay Scene…
Today we learned that in the original ‘Good Will Hunting’ script, there is a surprise gay scene between the two straight leads — Matt Damon and the late Robin Williams. It was purposely put there as a test to see if studios actually read the script. Harvey Weinstein was the only producer who mentioned the scene, so his studio got the movie.
Said the producer:
“Everyone in Hollywood wanted Matt Damon and Ben Affleck and the film”, he recalled. “In the meeting with them, I said ‘I only have one really big note on the script. About page 60, the two leads, both straight men, have a sex scene. What the hell is that?'”
Hmm, we don’t get it. Straight friends have sex together all the time.
