Matt Damon Responds to the ‘Bennifer’ Rumors: “I Hope Its True. I Love Them Both”

Matt Damon appeared virtually on Tuesday’s episode of the Today show and although he was there to promote his new film, Stillwater, the show’s hosts couldn’t resist asking him about his longtime friend and collaborator Ben Affleck’s rumored romance with Jennifer Lopez.

“There’s not enough liquor in the world for you to get me to say something about that,” Damon joked. He admitted that he hadn’t heard anything concrete regarding their reunion, but that it remained a “fascinating story” to him nonetheless.

“I hope it’s true. I love them both,” he added. “That would be awesome.”
