The Oscar nominated star said she and the actor have both aged since dating and said she was happy to have a mature conversation with her former flame.

“It was last summer and it was actually very nice to see him and his kids and his wife and it all actually looked pretty old which was reassuring,” she said.

She also pointed out that looking back she thought the media was looking at her and Damon which added to the stress that was placed on their connection.

She added: “I feel like a lot of the youthful madness continued with our initial relationship, like it was amazing and tabloid.”

Although she did not go into details, Driver said that she and Damon were completely cordial when they met and did not discuss their past relationship.

“So it was good to have some kind of middle-aged conversation about the weather and all that,” she said.
