Matt Damon, 'Late Show with David Letterman'Matt Damon and Ben Affleck are big names in Hollywood now, but it wasn't always so. Everyone knows that they broke into the industry together, with their shared Oscar win for the screenplay of 'Good Will Hunting.' On 'Late Show' (Weeknights, 11:35PM ET on CBS), Damon revealed just how committed they were to making acting their career.

Dating back to when they were young teens, the boys set up a joint checking account for the sole purpose of financing trips to New York for auditions. They did commercials locally to fund these trips in the hopes of making it big. They were focused and dedicated to the dream ... well, mostly.

"There was a video arcade between the high school and our houses and so on the way home from school it would be like, Emergency board meeting!" Damon admitted "Request permission to dip in and take ten dollars."

They were still teenagers, after all. Still, it's a remarkable show of hard work and commitment to achieve their dreams, and all that work has certainly paid off for the pair of them.
