Sorry, but "who f*cking cares" is the answer here.

Damon was way more famous at one point but I think they're about equal now.

It's probably Affleck because he lives a much more high-profile social life in public. It goes without saying that Damon is the more respected actor.

That's the correct answer to every poll ever posted in the Movie or TV Talk forums.

Yep. There was also a time in the early 2000s when Damon was sticking to smaller, more dramatic roles while Affleck was taking any lead action role that came his way. Remember, Affleck was Jack Ryan at one point.

Of course Damon then signed up to play Jason Bourne and left Affleck’s action roles in the dust.

Maybe depending on the moment of time and who has the better movies out.

I am glad they are both older than me by 2 or 3 years.

I think Ben Affleck is more accomplished if you count his work as a director.

Affleck has been a fixture of entertainment/celebrity news for most of his career now. Damon, not so much. This makes Affleck more famous automatically.

I think Affleck might be more famous since people that don't watch his movies know him as the guy married to J-Lo in the gossip rags.

Re: Who's More Famous? Damon or Affleck

Affleck is definitely more famous. I'd also say that he's a better actor. Not to mention his success with directing.

Hell, the thing Damon is most "famous" for recently is being a Crypto FTX shrill.
