Just like the rest of the world, Matt Damon is also Team Bennifer! Bringing us back to the early 2000s, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez took their recently rekindled romance to St. Tropez, France, as the couple luxuriously celebrated JLo's 52nd birthday. Amid their whirlwind romance, Ben's best friend Matt was asked his thoughts on Affleck reuniting with his ex-fiancée.

"I'm just so happy for him. He's the best," Damon gushed about his closest friend to Extra at the New York premiere of his latest outing, Stillwater. "He deserves every happiness in the world. I'm glad for both of them," the 50-year-old actor added. Interestingly, a few months back, when Matt was grilled on Today about Bennifer, who were still in a rumoured relationship at the time, the Jason Bourne actor had cryptically reacted, "It's a fascinating story. I hope it's true. I love them both. I hope it's true. That would be awesome."

Now, with Bennifer confirming their romance to the world, especially with Jennifer making it Instagram official on her 52nd birthday, Matt doesn't have to be cryptic anymore!
