Matt Damon struggles to write alone


Hollywood star Matt Damon likes to work with a partner on his writing projects because he "can't do it" alone.

The actor won an Academy Award for the "Good Will Hunting" screenplay he co-wrote with Ben Affleck, and he teamed up with "The Office" John Krasinski to pen 2012 drama "Promised Land." Damon says he needs to team up with a writing partner on all his projects, as he struggles to concentrate when left to work on his own.

Bing: Ben Affleck speaks out on Boston Marathon tragedy

He tells Britain's Radar magazine, "I need a writing partner. Or I can't do it. I was an English major at college and I hated the solitude of just staring at the computer screen, it drove me nuts. Creative writing is, of course, different from essay writing. It's more active and when you have a partner to do it with, there's scope for improvisation and a lot more laughter ... Often better writing happens by osmosis when two people hang out. Ben Affleck and I always had a blast when we wrote (together)."

He may have been born with original sin but it's doubtful he'll ever be accused of original thought. He and my ex wife could be twins, separated at birth.

He cant do it alone because he is a complete Libtard . Im surprised he hasn't just given all of his money to the treasury as he is such a proponent on the rich paying to fund all of Obama's socialism ...I guess that is right up until its his money . He is beyond stupid , have your heard the stuff that comes out of his mouth ?
