The former couple dated around the time of Good Will Hunting's release, and the actor notably announced that he was single during a 1998 episode of The Oprah Winfrey Show, which ended their relationship.

During the conversation, Driver recalled that the reunion was unexpected and that they had not spoken for over two decades before then.

'I did see Matt Damon on the beach and I had not had a conversation with him, seriously, since we made the film,' she pointed out.

Cheerful: Minnie looked as if she was happy about taking the dip 

The Academy Award-nominated star expressed that she and the actor had both grown older ever since they dated and said that she was happy to have a mature conversation with her former flame.

'That was last summer and it was actually very nice to see him, and his kids, and his wife and it all felt quite middle-aged actually, which was reassuring,' she stated.    

She also pointed out that, in looking back, she thought that the media had honed in on her and Damon, which added to the stress that was put on their connection.

She added, 'I feel like so much of the folly of youth went on with our initial relationship, like it was amazing and tabloid-y.'

Although she did not go into specifics, Driver expressed that she and Damon were completely cordial during their meeting and did not speak about their past relationship.

'So that was nice to just have sort of a middle-aged conversation about the weather and stuff,' she said.
