Matt Damon and Minnie Driver co-starred in "Good Will Hunting" and dated for a while. However, on the "Oprah Winfrey Show", Damon announced they broke up.

1997 -  2000
Matt Damon dated Winona Ryder. The two were a high-profile pair while together ("People" magazine declared them "Hollywood's It Couple") despite both their efforts to keep it from the public eye.

Matt Damon and Penelope Cruz co-starred in the epic Western "All the Pretty Horses," and dated for a time after. The two made an appearance on "Oprah Winfrey's" show together, and while never confirming their relationship, Cruz claimed: "Matt's a very special man, he's funny and he's one of the most generous people I've met in my life. He has no defects." A blushing Damon replied: "That's the most amazing thing to say."

2001 -  2003
Matt Damon and Odessa Whitmire (Billy Bob Thornton's personal assistant and, later, Ben Affleck) very secretly dated for two years, only appearing in public for two events: the international premieres for "The Bourne Identity" in Taipei, Taiwan and Sydney, Australia.
