Matt Damon is a real friend: Ben Affleck

London: Actor Ben Affleck says that despite his global fame he only has a few friends and one of them is fellow Hollywood heartthrob Matt Damon.

The 38-year-old actor said that over the years he has learnt who his true friends are and is glad that he has known Damon, 40, for the past 30 years, reported Daily Mail online.

"If I was ever in trouble the one call I`d make would be to Matt Damon. We`ve been friends for 30 years. I can`t believe I`m old enough to say I`ve had a friend for 30 years.

But he is a friend, and a partner in a company we have together," said the `Pearl Harbour` star. And Damon was the person whom he turned to advice while directing his Oscar nominated Boston drama `The Town`.

"He saw `The Town` in five different versions and each time he saw it he presented me with pages and pages of very smart notes. I`ve got to a stage in life where I have learnt who my real friends are. You don`t need many, you just need good, solid friends," said Affleck

The two friends had begun their rise to fame with `Good Will Hunting`, which was written by and starred the duo and went on to win an Oscar.
