Today We Learned: Matt Damon & Ben Affleck Created a Joint Bank…
Today we learned BFFs 16-year-old Matt Damon and 14-year-old Ben Affleck created a joint bank account before they rose to fame, which held their money from filming commercials in Boston, so the two could pay for trips to audition for roles in New York.
“I started coming down here to New York by myself with money I had made in local commercials in Boston,” Damon said in an interview with Piers Morgan.
“Ben and I actually had a joint bank account and the bank account was money we had made from doing local commercials and we could only use it on trips to New York to audition.
“When I look back at that, a 16 and 14 year old, we were really young to be taking the bus by ourselves to New York and spending a day going to an audition – we were living adult lives as teenagers.”
We bet they still have the same joint account today. 🙂
Matt’s 46. Ben’s 44.
