  1. What i'm wondering is this: He says ''being from boston we didn't realize how much we swore''. They didn't realize it.. the f-word had become hardwired in how they talked to eachother and because of that, removing the ''swearing aspect'' of the word. The word being used to add power to what they are saying, without the intention to insult anyone. If it is meant to insult, then it wouldn't be the word itself, but the TONE in which it is said that makes it an insult.

    I might be wrong about this, but this is my perception/opinion on this.

  2. About 20 years after 'Good Will Hunting', Matt Damon looks maybe 4 years older now than his character in the film. The guy must have access to the fountain of youth or something, dayum.

  3. I'm not sure but the Irish influence on Boston is most likely why they curse so much cause I'll fucking tell you now we use curses as place holders aswellr

  4. Elysium 2013
    Interstellar 2014
    The Bourne 2004 – 2016
    The Gr8 Wall 2017
    The Martian 2015
    Titan A.E. 2000

  5. Good Will Huntin was great. Downsizing was time out of my life that I can never get back awful

  6. Ahh, Roy Moore joke because Republicans are douchey rapists! She ain't too old for Bill Clinton. Democrats are douchey rapists too. And didn't you get #Metoo'd as well, Mr. DAMON.

  7. Yeah! Give some love for "Spirit." My daughter and I watched that daily for like six months. Wonderful memories.

  8. Just watched GWH the other day for the first time in years…timeless doesn’t begin to describe that masterpiece

  9. Matt Damon and that other douche Ben Afflek need a 2 decade time out from movies.
    Please.

    The same goes for Marky mark and Sandra Bullocks

  10. This whole no cursing in the U.S.A. is so silly. Everybody knows what is being beeped and you will be exposed to cursing at some point in your life, so what is the point?. Quite strange. Why would a word have so much power? I can imagine if it would deny the existence of imaginary friends, that people think it has power. But this just refers to the act of making love. We were all born that way. So silly that there are things you cannot say. And especially in a humoristic context. Why whould anyone care? Because caring about them nog being spoken is what gives the words power over you. But I´m happy you do, because there has been research showing that the pain-threshold is actually higher for people if they can swear. If everything was allowed, we wouldn´t have any swear words, so thank you for beeping that.

  11. I've always wondered if a movie star can enjoy other movies. Knowing how they are made and maybe knowing the actors behind the characters

  12. I like how Americans are fine with Guns and violence anytime of the day but swearing on a late chat show is too much!! Hahaha

  13. Matt Damon's daughter is 3 years older than me….? I don't have a chance ahaha (I already knew that but still)

  14. That's the longest and loudest applause any guest had ever had on the show. Makes sense tho, coz its Matt fuc**n Damon.

  15. I agree Good Will Hunting great movie, but not exactly kid friendly. Maybe he'll let his kids see it when they're older.

  16. Did you know that you and Ben Affleck mirror Jesus Christ and John the Baptist? In that light, is there a Jesus Barabbas set aside somewhere? Mister Damon, who is assaulting my Roman Catholic monks, nuns, priests, bishops, diocese offices, and so on and so forth? It's a rhetorical question.

  17. Editing a script to make a film PG-13 is the sorriest excuse of editing there is. I’d be embarrassed to say that my work of film was whittled down to fit PG-13.
