WATCH: Matt Damon on Robin Williams “crushing it” in the famous park bench scene in Good Will Hunting
“When he was just crushing it, you know, on the first take, I just went ‘This is going to be really good.’”
Today, August 11, marks the second anniversary of the death of the great Robin Williams.
Of all his many memorable roles, arguably his finest hour was his performance as therapist Sean Maguire in Good Will Hunting, a role for which he won a Best Supporting Actor Oscar in 1997.
Ahead of the release of Jason Bourne last month, JOE’s Paul Moore caught up with Williams’ Good Will Hunting co-star Matt Damon, who recalled Williams’ performance in one of the most iconic scenes from the movie.
Damon recalled how he was blown away by Williams’ performance even as the scene was being shot and talked about a recent return to the famous bench in Boston with his family.
