ABC/Randy Holmes(LOS ANGELES) — Jason Bourne star Matt Damon is looking back on the film that launched his career, Good Will Hunting.

In an interview with Irish publication JOE, Damon reflected on the iconic park bench scene he shared with the late Robin Williams.

This past week marks two years since Hollywood and fans everywhere lost Williams.

“It was Robin’s scene,” Damon says in the interview. “And when he was just crushing it, you know, on the first take, I just went, ‘This is…this is going to be really good.'”

The actor says he returned to the bench in Boston Commons with his family recently. Damon’s kids may not have realized the significance, but the Oscar winner had a moment of nostalgia.

“It was nice to go back and think about [Williams] back there,” he says.

Williams won a best supporting actor Oscar for the film; Damon shared a best original screenplay Academy Award for the film with Ben Affleck.
