Matt Damon Remembers Good Will Hunting Park Scene with Robin Williams
During an interview with JOE.ie, Damon was asked about the standout park bench scene from the Oscar-winning film. “I had probably one or two lines in that. It was Robin’s scene,” he said, “and when he was just crushing it on the first take, I just went, ‘This is gonna be really good.’”
While Damon won the Oscar for best screenplay with co-writer Ben Affleck in 1998, Williams won for best supporting actor. Watch a clip from the scene below.
Damon continued saying he revisited the famous bench in Boston Commons where the scene was filmed. “I walked over there with my family and we sat on the bench,” he said. “The kids didn’t know, they’ve never seen the movie, they’re too young. But it was nice to go back and think about him back there.”
