Matt Damon and Ben Affleck

Theirs begins like any great bromance -- 1980, Cambridge, Massachusetts, an eight-year-old Ben Affleck befriends the new kid on the block, 10-year-old Matt Damon. The twosome's early bond strengthened as they grew up due to their shared dream of becoming famous actors. In 1992, the friends moved to Los Angeles together, where for many years they struggled to find consistent work. During this time, Matt and Ben wrote a script for a little movie called Good Will Hunting. The critically-acclaimed screenplay would not only win them each an Oscar in 1997, but would forever solidify them as lifelong collaborators. Together they've been through many successes, failures, first marriages, broken engagements, kids, cheating scandals, gambling addictions (mostly thanks to Ben), and despite it all, they're still going strong today.
