Cape Town – Matt Damon is just about the most loved celeb in Hollywood and we’re not the only ones that think so.

The 45-year-old sat down with GQ magazine as the cover star of their August issue, but instead of your run of the mill interview GQ decided to let all his A-lister buddies share what they think of him.

Here are 9 cool things his famous friends had to say about him:

1. Matt's Good Will Hunting accent is the greatest Boston accent that's ever been captured in a movie by an actual actor - Bill Simmons

2. He looks swell in a Speedo – George Clooney

3. Matt can be funny, Matt can be charming, but there's an idealism in Matt, like Mr. Smith Goes to Washington or It's a Wonderful Life - Harvey Weinstein

4. The most amazing gift about Matt's physical appearance is that he can walk into the hair-and-makeup trailer looking like someone who slept directly on his face for seven hours and emerge a bona fide movie star. He has a great makeup artist - Scarlett Johansson

5. The quality that has allowed Matt to maintain the illusion that he is Mr. Nice Guy is that he found a young TV actor who was just a pretty face and made friends with him so he would always look good by comparison - Ben Affleck

6. Matty's a good boy and he has nice teeth - Julia Roberts 

7. He's like the most universally loved person I've ever met – Emily Blunt

8. Matt is confident and self-assured enough to appreciate a peer's success while still paving his own path - Matthew McConaughey
