Minnie Driver encountered Matt Damon for the first time since the breakup

Maybe time able to heal all wounds.

Minnie Driver said she ran into Matt Damon last year for the first time since their infamous split. The actor who fell in love with Damon during the 1997s Good Will Hunting, detailed the “lovely” moment on Monday Keep it up! podcast.

“I saw Matt Damon on the beach and I had not had a serious conversation with him since we made the movie,” Cinderella star split. “It was last summer and it was actually very nice to see him and his kids and his wife and it all actually felt quite middle-aged, which was reassuring.”

Damon married wife Luciana in 2005 and they are the parents of four children.

“I feel like so much of the youth’s folly continued with our first relationship, as if it was amazing and tabloid,” Driver continued. “So it was nice just to have some kind of middle-aged conversation about the weather and stuff like that.”

Driver, 51, and Damon, 50, met when she auditioned for Good Will Hunting. She later remembered The Telegraph she was “completely in love with Matt” when the film went into production.

“I was amazed at his commitment to me as an actor, he was sweet and intelligent and overall a really charming package. I was young and I fell for him – it’s a business danger,” she recalled.

The actors made several public appearances together as a couple in 1997. Around the time the film was released in January 1998, Damon began stepping out with another actress: Winona Ryder. He then announced that he was single Oprah Winfrey Show, much to the surprise of the Driver.

“There are these archetypes that everyone needs to separate,” Driver said Los Angeles Times in 1998. “I had to be a victim. It’s still horrible to break up with someone, but to have it so public and be thrown into a role that I would never play if they paid me – this wronged woman! It is a pity that Matt continued Oprah; it seemed like a good forum for him to announce to the world that we were no longer together, which I found fantastically inappropriate. Of course, he was busy declaring his love for me at David Letterman a month earlier. “

After the award season ended, the two did not cross paths again for decades. But Driver had no problem calling his ex. In December 2017, Damon made some controversial statements at the start of the #MeToo movement, saying there is “a difference between patting someone on the butt and raping or abusing children” “Both of these behaviors must be confronted and eradicated without a doubt, but they should not be mixed.”

The driver responded on Twitter.

“I felt like I had a desperate need to say something. I have realized that most men, good men, the men I love, there is a cut in their ability to understand. They simply cannot understand, how abuse is on a daily basis level, ”she explained The guardian. “I honestly think that until we get on the same page, you can not tell a woman about their abuse. A man can not do it. No one can. It’s so individual and so personal, it’s crazy when a powerful man steps in. up and start dictating the terms, whether he intends to or not. “

It’s good that they kept the light on the beach.
