"Right. But how else would I be? Like, would I be unhappy?” Damon quipped. “Like, 'I hate true love.'" He continued, "It sucks. Yeah. Yeah. I wish them nothing, but you know, hardship."

All joking aside, OK! recently reported that Damon revealed that he was pleased Affleck has found love once again with Lopez. "I’m just so happy for him. He’s the best," the Jason Bourne star candidly told Extra on Monday, July 26. "He deserves every happiness in the world. I’m glad for both of them."

When it comes to Hollywood bromances, Damon and Affleck’s is one for the history books. The two came up the ranks together and jetted straight to the top of the A-list. The duo's other bestie — Ted star Mark Wahlberg — recently opened up about the trio's longtime friendship.

While promoting his upcoming film Joe Bell — a true story of an Oregon father who pays tribute to his gay teenage son who committed suicide after years of being bullied — Wahlberg spilled on the Boston native's friendly rivalry.

“They are obviously close friends,” he gushed to Fox New York’s legendary host Rosanna Scotto. “I definitely root for them to be successful, but I also want to beat them at everything we do, I want to be a little bit better.”

Unlike Damon, however, the Shooter alum remained tight-lipped when Scotto asked him about Affleck’s love affair with the former Fly Girl. “I have no idea, I have no idea. I live in a bubble,” he said, noting he is too busy being a husband to wife, Rhea Durham, and father to their four children, Ella, Michael, Brendan and Grace.
