Ben Affleck Reveals Celebrity Wordle Group with Matt Damon and Bradley Cooper
In late 2021, Wordle took the world by storm, with people competing on social media to see who could guess the words correctly. Ben Affleck is no exception, and he is still obsessed with the game. In a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Affleck admitted that he is part of a celebrity Wordle group with his friends Matt Damon, Bradley Cooper, and Jason Bateman.
Affleck revealed that he was invited to join the “cool little red velvet rope” group but was initially disappointed with his performance.
“I used to do the crossword compulsively in the mornings and think I was good at word games. And let’s face it, going up against actors. It’s not a high bar. I expected to do fairly well, so I was seriously humbled,” he joked.
The group is highly competitive, with much mockery and ridicule involved. The day’s winner scores lowest after completing Wordle, Quordle, and Octordle.
Aside from his Wordle group, Affleck also discussed some controversies surrounding him throughout the years. He addressed the misconstrued comments about his relationship with his ex-wife Jennifer Garner and the time he became a meme for looking miserable at the 2023 Grammys with his wife, Jennifer Lopez.
“I had a good time,” he insisted.
Longtime Friends and Business Partners
Affleck and Damon have been friends for a long time, collaborating for the first time 25 years ago on the screenplay for Good Will Hunting. They won Oscars for their efforts and founded their own production company, Artists Equity, based on profit-sharing among all creators. Air, directed by Affleck, is the company’s first movie and is set to premiere on April 5th.
