Ben Affleck was honored with the Santa Barbara International Film Festival's modern master award last night. He ventured to the city along with his best friend Matt Damon. Ben sat for a Q&A session moderated by Leonard Maltin before the nighttime ceremony, where Matt had the honor of introducing Ben to the crowd. Matt said of Ben, "[He's] undeniably two things — my very old friend and a very young master." Ben walked onto the stage, and the childhood pals embraced. Later, Ben and Matt relaxed and chatted with mini bottles of Moët & Chandon in hand. It's been a good week for Matt and Ben togetherness, since they also had a play fight when Matt took over Jimmy Kimmel's show Thursday.
