It's Matt & Ben All Over Again at the Guys Choice Awards
Matt Damon and Ben Affleck reunited at last night's taping of Spike's 10th Annual Guys Choice Awards, where their acceptance speech was... not exactly the same kind they'd have given at the Oscars.
People magazine reports the bosom buddies were honored as Guys of the Decade, which Damon jokingly renamed the "D--kheads of the Decade Award."
Facetiously, Affleck said, "I think it goes without saying that this is an award Matt and I have been dreaming about since we were little boys. I did 'Gigli' and Matt did that Liberace movie and all of a sudden it all seemed out of reach. Then I did ['Batman v Superman'] and all of a sudden it was back in reach again."
According to People, the pair spent time hanging out backstage, where Damon was spotted chatting with Julia Roberts and Robert De Niro.
On June 3, Damon gave the commencement speech at MIT, the setting of his and Affleck's breakthrough film "Good Will Hunting," referencing his friendship with Ben: "For all the amazing successes I've been lucky to share, few things have shaped me more than the auditions Ben and I used to go on as young actors, where we'd get on a bus, show up in New York, wait our turn, cry our hearts out for a scene and then be told, 'Okay, thanks,' meaning game over," he said. "We used to call it, 'Okay, thanks,' and those experiences became our honor."
Spike's 10th Annual Guys Choice Awards airs June 9 at 9 p.m. ET.
