Matt Damon and Ben Affleck: The two have been childhood friends, and won their first Oscar in 1997 for the ­screenplay of Good Will Hunting. In fact, their friendship is so close that there were rumours of them being in a homosexual relationship. However, Damon cleared the air around the rumour and said, “It put me in a weird position. I never denied those rumours because I was offended, and I didn’t want to offend my friends who were gay — as if being gay were some kind of f**ing ­disease (sic).”
