“Good Will Hunting” made Ben Affleck and Matt Damon who they are today, But it only got made because Robin Williams agreed to do it. Unfortunately, they can’t pay him back anymore.
Matt says, “Oh, man, [I have] a lot of Robin Williams memories, good memories of him. And Ben said recently, it’s weird, we always felt like we were going to, we had this incredible debt to pay him back.
“And we thought there would be time to do that and just the abruptness of somebody leaving like that, that realization comes that you’re never going to be able to pay back this incredible thing done for you.”
