Matt Damon Tells A ‘Funny Story’ About Living Next To Emily Blunt And How Christopher Nolan Cast Them For 'Oppenheimer'
  • 4 months ago
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."
