Ben Affleck Receives Honorary Doctorate From Brown
Matt Damon may have gone to Harvard, but Ben Affleck has an honorary doctorate from another Ivy League school — how do you like them apples?
The Argo star was awarded an honorary doctorate from Brown University on Sunday, according to E! Online. The actor was honored for his work in the entertainment industry as a quintuple threat — that’s actor, director, writer, producer, and charmingly bumbling Oscar speech-giver.
In his younger days, Ben attended Occidental College and the University of Vermont, but failed to graduate.
Despite his lack of a prior degree, Ben, who was in attendance at the prestigious school’s graduation ceremony, already had some impressive accolades to his name, having already received an honorary doctorate from RISD.
The state of Rhode Island — huge Ben Affleck fans, none of whom remember Gigli, apparently.
