Matt Damon Tells A ‘Funny Story’ About Living Next To Emily Blunt And How Christopher Nolan Cast Them For 'Oppenheimer'

Matt Damon and Emily Blunt are set to work together once again in the summer blockbuster "Oppenheimer." The film is highly anticipated, partly due the impeccable cast writer/director Christopher Nolan assembled. Having co-starred in the 2011 thriller "The Adjustment Bureau," Blunt and Damon are friends and even live in proximity to each other in New York. Now, Damon is sharing a funny story about being Blunt’s neighbor as well as how they both got cast by the legendary filmmaker for their latest film.

The two delightful co-stars opened up to Access Hollywood about their work on the World War II epic and off-screen friendship. Emily Blunt and her husband, John Krasinski, live on the tenth floor of a Brooklyn duplex, while Damon and his wife have an abode spanning the 11th and 12th floors. That off-camera connection contributed to a hilarious story about how Christopher Nolan awkwardly approached both actors about starring in "Oppenheimer."
