Minnie Driver and Matt Damon weren’t just on-screen lovers on “Good Will Hunting,” they were also an item in real life once upon a time. While Damon’s relationship with his wife, Luciana Barroso, is now the picture of marital bliss, he was quite the heartbreaker back in the day, according to Driver.

Driver and Damon dated for a little over a year in the late 1990s, with the two becoming a Hollywood It Couple at one point. But it all came to an end in 1998 when Damon practically broke up with her in the worst way possible — on TV, just a month after he declared his love for her, also on TV. In a guest appearance on “Oprah,” he told the host that he was single, effectively blindsiding Driver. “It’s unfortunate that Matt went on ‘Oprah’; it seemed like a good forum for him to announce to the world that we were no longer together, which I found fantastically inappropriate,” she told The Los Angeles Times. “Of course, he was busy declaring his love for me on David Letterman a month previously.”

The two unfortunately did not end up becoming friends, and their relationship soured even more when Damon made controversial comments about the Harvey Weinstein case on ABC News, suggesting that there’s a “spectrum of behavior” in sexual misconduct. Driver didn’t hold back, calling him out on X, formerly Twitter. “God [sic] God, SERIOUSLY?” she exclaimed, adding that her ex was “utterly tone deaf and as a result, systemically part of the problem.”
