London: Matt Damon has revealed that he shared a bank account with best friend Ben Affleck before they rose to fame.

He said that they often used to share their funds to pay for audition trips.

"I started coming down here to New York by myself with money I had made in local commercials in Boston,” the Daily Express quoted Damon as telling ‘Piers Morgan Tonight’.

"Ben and I actually had a joint bank account and the bank account was money we had made from doing local commercials and we could only use it on trips to New York to audition.

"When I look back at that, a 16 and 14 year old, we were really young to be taking the bus by ourselves to New York and spending a day going to an audition - we were living adult lives as teenagers."
