(Newser) – Thursday marked the two-year anniversary of Robin Williams' death, and his Good Will Hunting co-star Matt Damon just happened to be doing an interview with Irish website JOE.ie. Asked about the memorable bench scene from the movie, Damon responded that he knew right away the scene would be a standout. "When he was just crushing it on the first take, I just went, ‘This is gonna be really good,'" Damon said. He added that he recently visited the bench, which is located in Boston Commons. "I walked over there with my family and we sat on the bench," he said. “The kids didn’t know, they’ve never seen the movie, they’re too young. But it was nice to go back and think about him back there." (Read more Robin Williams stories.)
