During the latest instalment of Showtime’s “Desus & Mero“, Damon discussed the difference in how the press has been reporting on “Bennifer” since the pair rekindled their relationship in recent months.
“I have to say, the press was particularly terrible to them 18 years ago,” admitted the “Stillwater” star. “At least they’re being nice this time around.”
Damon also revealed how his good friend, Affleck, has been staying in touch during his latest sun soaked couples getaway.
“They’re on vacation right now but he’s still responding when I hit him up about the Red Sox,” joked the actor.
Damon and Affleck most recently worked together on Ridley Scott’s “The Last Duel”.
“That’s gonna come out in October,” he added. “It’s a medieval movie.”
