While promoting Paycheck in Los Angeles in 2003, Ben Affleck was asked whether he and his "sweetheart" planned to get married. Affleck, weary of discussing his on-again, off-again relationship with Jennifer Lopez, astutely deflected the question. "I think it's important to address [that issue]," Affleck declared. "It is now legal in Massachusetts [gay marriage] and Matt and I have set a date of New Year's Day in [gay mecca] Provincetown. Be there!"
[Matt was easily Ben's best friend. "If I ever woke up with a dead hooker in my hotel room," he once remarked, "Matt would be the first person I'd call."]
