Ac­tor Matt Da­mon (top) says his film Good Will Hunt­ing that won him and ac­tor Ben Af­fleck an Os­car for best orig­i­nal screen­play, has in­flu­enced his ca­reer a lot.

The 45-year-old says that to this day, he finds the 1998 movie the best, re­ported En­ter­tain­ment Tonight. “It ob­vi­ously is the most in­flu­en­tial movie in my life, and in Ben’s life, and bring­ing it to the screen, kind of dom­i­nated our 20s. It took five years to get it from the time we started to the time it came out,” said the ac­tor.

Da­mon added he would love to write with Af­fleck again. “I love Ben, I love his work, he’s been my buddy for 35 years. I’d love to write an­other script with Ben. The big is­sue is time for us. We have a com­pany to­gether so we work on a lot of projects to­gether, but to try to carve out the time is re­ally tough,” he said.
