Ben Affleck reveals how he and Matt Damon blew their 'Good Will Hunting' fortune in just 6 months on party house and Jeeps

Ben Affleck says he and Matt Damon blew through the $110,000 they'd each made selling 'Good Will Hunting' and went 'broke in 6 months'

Ben Affleck, the famous Hollywood actor, recently revealed that he and his best friend, Matt Damon, spent all their earnings from their breakthrough film "Good Will Hunting" within just six months. In an interview with "The Drew Barrymore Show," Affleck shared how he and Damon sold the 1997 movie for $600,000, of which they each received $270,000 after taxes and agent fees. With that money, they both bought Jeeps worth $55,000 each and rented a party house in Los Angeles for $5,000 a month. But unfortunately, their money didn't last long, and they went broke after just six months of lavish spending.

It's not the first time that the duo has talked about their early days as struggling actors. Affleck and Damon had previously shared a bank account to fund their trips for auditions in New York. However, they always supported each other and wanted each other to succeed. They even won an Oscar for "Good Will Hunting," which they wrote together and starred in.

Affleck's revelation about their financial struggles after their film's success shows that even Hollywood stars can face financial difficulties. But it also highlights the importance of having supportive friends in tough times.
