Affleck's Pal Damon Is Keeping Him Dry

Now that BEN AFFLECK is out of rehab, best pal MATT DAMON is determined that the PEARL HARBOR (2001) star will not go back. Affleck was admitted into a clinic in Malibu, California in August (01) after admitting alcohol abuse.

But since emerging he has enjoyed the support of Hollywood pals like Damon and director KEVIN SMITH, and is said to be recovering well. And GOOD WILL HUNTING (1997) star Damon is especially determined that his DOGMA (1999) co-star won't go back to his hell-raising party-loving ways.

According to American tabloid NATIONAL ENQUIRER, Damon has called four of Affleck's best party buddies and ordered them to stay away from him. (IG/WNWCNE)
