Ben Affleck Disses Matt Damon at Brown Graduation Ceremony (VIDEO)


Ben Affleck┬ánow has something Matt Damon doesn’t — a doctorate from Brown University.

Over the weekend, the Argo director accepted an honorary degree in Fine Arts from the Ivy League institution in Rhode Island.

After accepting the degree, he told the adoring crowd, “This is a spectacular honor for me. Among other things today, in higher education, I passed Matt Damon.”

Check out his graduation speech:

He continued: “And my daughters, when I told them what was happening — my daughter is 7 — she said, ‘Why are you doing that, Dad? You went to no classes and did no homework.”

But another family member of Ben’s was impressed by the honor.

“In truth, my mother is here, it means a lot to her, she never got to see me graduate from any higher education at all,” he said. “So Mom, this is for you, I love you.”

Matt Damon attended Harvard University, but didn’t graduate. Ben attended Occidental College and The University of Vermont. He didn’t finish, either.

Perhaps Princeton or Yale would like to offer Matt an honorary degree?

One honor Ben and Matt both share is the title of People‘s Sexiest Man Alive. Ben was crowned in 2002, while Matt received the honor in 2007.
