Ben Affleck Reveals Matt Damon Was A TRULY Disgusting Roommate!!

Ben Affleck and Matt Damon may be best friends — but living together was a whole other ball game.

The Air director swung by The Late Late Show with James Corden Thursday night, where he got candid about his living situation with The Bourne Identity star decades ago — and we’ll just say we don’t envy him!

Ben recalled when they were teens, the two shared a “joint bank account” so they could “help each other” to make it to auditions in New York. But when they eventually ended up in El Lay with Ben’s little bro Casey Affleck, Matt’s true roommate colors began to show! Ben prefaced the dirty laundry by gushing about his bestie: 

“Matt’s a beautiful guy. I love him. He’s my best friend. He’s been great to me my whole life. He’s a brilliant guy.”

However, he didn’t shy away from adding a friendly little jab among all the praise:

“I would not suggest living with him.”

He playfully added that Matt “has an ability” to “block things out,” sharing that he “never paid a bill.” He theorized: 

“I think that’s why he’s such a great actor because he can just focus, you know what I mean? One of the things he blocks out is the idea that when you finish with something, it has to be washed or thrown away.”

Ha! The Batman v Superman star then recalled a time where he and Casey put Matt to the test:

“So finally me and my brother, after cleaning up after the guy for years, we were like, you know what? We’re going to go on a sit-down strike. We’re just going to wait and see how long he will go before actually gets up and goes, ‘God, I’m covered in garbage.’”

He continued:

“We went weeks — two weeks without touching the apartment — came home one day, me and him, Matt’s there in his shorts, his t-shirt, playing, I think it was the ‘92 Sega hockey game, in the middle of what was the living room, just surrounded by, like, concentric circles of garbage, pizza boxes.”

The Good Will Hunting star added:

“I look down at this sushi thing that was like a week and a half old, and there’s maggots.”

OMG EW! Ben remembered:

“We were like, ‘We submit! You are too good. We cannot beat you.’ He just was like, ‘Hey, what’s going on, fellas?’”

He joked that he responded, “That’s a rat on you!” LOLz! All of this is to say that Ben has MAJOR respect for Matt’s wife, Luciana Barroso. He noted:

“God bless his wife Lucy. There’s a place for you in heaven.”

Poor Ben! You know what they say — you never really know someone until you live with them! But obviously the two BFFS have an unbreakable bond! Let’s just hope it doesn’t get put to the test again, LOLz! But hey, you know what? Not all roommates will help you win an Oscar, so…
