Judging by their antics on Jimmy Kimmel Live or at Spike’s Guys Choice Awards, Ben Affleck and Matt Damon are pretty prolific pranksters, which is why it’s no surprise that the Boston loving BFFs were involved in some more hijinks over the weekend.
During a recent Q&A chat on Twitter for the upcoming Jason Bourne movie, Damon was trolled by his famous pal, who tweeted out a question accompanied by a hilarious photo of a much younger version of the Bourne star.
“If you could go back in time, what advice would you give this guy?” Affleck asked.

The actor revealed that the photo is indeed of his real hair and was taken in 1988, so way before the pair’s rise to stardom with Good Will Hunting. Damon said that he sported a similar hairdo in Behind the Candelabra, the HBO movie about Liberace.
“Clearly that guy is going to be nothing but a major success,” Damon joked. “I mean, look at the hair alone. What’s funny is that I had that exact wig made for the Liberace movie for the ’80s sequence. We called it the ‘Flock of Seagulls’ wig.”
Check out Damon’s full reaction to the photo and Affleck’s question below.
