Ben Affleck has joked Matt Damon is "hurting" after he worked with George Clooney.
Ben and Matt shot to fame after working on the award-winning movie Good Will Hunting and have been close friends since childhood. Ben has now revealed Matt is feeling jealous that his pal is working on new thriller Argo with George.
"Matt's hurting, but you know how it is: you have to just do a lot of careful stroking and he'll come back around, he laughed to ET.
Ben got to know George after the hunk worked with both Matt and his brother Casey Affleck on Ocean's Eleven.
Ben stars in Argo as well as directing the thriller, while George was a producer.
Bryan Cranston also stars in the movie and believes that Ben's acting experience makes him a great director. The star also joked about the other benefits of being involved in a film helmed by Ben.
"He doesn't make his cast sleep with him. That's one of the best things that Affleck as a director doesn't do," Bryan quipped. "He's incredibly passionate about the work. He's compassionate [with] the actors because he is one... He creates a great atmosphere on the set so that everybody is able to do their best work."
