On Tuesday’s “Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” Matt Damon revisited his memorable first appearance on the late-night series — which was also his first-ever talk show interview.

“I went from this show to the premiere of Good Will Hunting,” recalled the actor, thanking Leno for his generosity and noting, “When you’re on your way up and you’re at the bottom, you never forget the people who were nice to you.”

Damon went on to confess that he doesn’t remember what took place during the interview, but that he had “stage fright.”

“I don’t think I’ve ever been as scared as the first time I did this show,” he said.

The Monuments Men star also revealed a hilarious prank George Clooney played on him during filming of their upcoming movie.
