Let’s just say that Ben Affleck is experiencing some miraculous career rebirth.
Every dog has his day, and March 27 was Matt Damon’s. He was honored at the Beverly Hilton Hotel for the “24th Annual American Cinematheque Award Presentation to Matt Damon.”
As the title implies, it was all about the 39-year-old actor. “This is way too much attention for one person,” Matt said when he accepted his award.
It wasn’t your usual night of formal ceremonies and tear-jerking speeches. Jimmy Kimmel opened the ceremony with his signature sarcastic comedy as he made fun of good-humored Matt, who took everything in stride. They also showed clips of Jimmy Kimmel Live where they spoofed Matt’s films.
Matt’s best friend Ben Affleck also poked fun at the Bourne Identity actor before handing him the Cinematheque award in front of a celebrity-studded audience. He even got barbs from Sarah Silverman and Ben’s wife Jennifer Garner.
In the middle of Matt’s thank-you speech, Jimmy’s comedy sidekick interrupted Matt, pretending to shove him off the stage.
Watch the official coverage of the “24th Annual American Cinematheque Award Presentation to Matt Damon” on ABC, coming this spring.
What better way to start the New Year than giving birth to a bouncing healthy baby? That’s how celeb couple Jen Garner and Ben Affleck started theirs. The baby’s name has not been announced yet but she is the second daughter of the couple, who has Violet as their first born.
Sarah Silverman may have got the first laugh when she made her music video “I’m f*ing Matt Damon. But her boyfriend Jimmy Kimmel has a comeback: “I’m F—ing Ben Affleck.” Will his video get the 4 million hits that Sarah’s received on You Tube alone?
There are some “movie couples” that you just don’t forget. Olivia Newton John and John Travolta in Grease. Julia Roberts and Hugh Grant in Notting Hill. Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks in Sleepless in Seattle.
But some pairings just don’t have any chemistry. In this list of the most
boring movie matches you’ll find Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez in Gigli and Hayden Christensen and Natalie Portman in Star Wars (proving that even a rabid cult following can’t create chemistry). R2D2 and See-threepio had more heart — and they were robots.
â€œI donâ€™t know what makes it work. But it does. One thing that makes it work is that weâ€™re both pretty nice. Heâ€™s not someone whoâ€™s ever going to blow up on anyone. What I mean is, if heâ€™s ever angry with me, he doesnâ€™t act out on it in a weird way or yell at me. And I am the same. So we handle conflict in a very loving and adult way.”
Matt Damon & his wife Luciana along with celebrity couple Ben Affleck & Jennifer Garner are still living it up large in Hawaii.Â I mean, how long is this vacation?Â Like going on a month now, must be nice.Â And you don’t really need to take pictures, as the paparazzi’s got your back on that one.
It looks like Matt, Luciana, BenÂ & Jen are trying their hands at surfing.Â I have to say Luciana & Jennifer look like they’re having more fun that they have talent.Â Looks like a good time was had by all on Wednesday.
Can youÂ believe it’s been ten years since the movie Good Will Hunting launched 36-year-old Matt Damon & 34-year-old Ben Affleck’s acreers?Â And the Oscar winners are still thicker than theives.
While the two guys have taken their families to Hawaii this week, let’s focus on who’s aging better & who’s got the better bod!Â You tell me….
I mean, come on!Â Have you ever seen a more adorable Hollywood mom & child?!
PopSugar is right,Â we’ve neverÂ loved Ben Affleck more than we doÂ these days.Â Â After marrying the right Jen for him, a stint in Promises rehab center & being daddy dearest to baby Violet, Ben seems to be living life radiantly.Â And finally, it was just about time the partyboy was growing up, if you ask me.
Ben was recently spotted giving back to the community by stopping by the Greater Boston Food Bank to give a helping hand.Â With National Hunger Awareness on everyone’s mind, it’s nice to see Garner’s Ben lending a hand.Â Way to go, Ben!
