Actor Matt Damon says he has no problems about failing as he feels it has shaped him more than his successes.
The Martian star has urged students graduating from the Institute of Technology in Cambridge, Massachusetts to not worry about being knocked down a peg or two once in a while as it shapes who you are, reported Female First.
Giving the commencement address at the ceremony, he said, “You’re going to fail sometimes, and that’s a good thing. For all the amazing successes I’ve been lucky to share in, few things have shaped me more than the auditions that Ben [Affleck] and I used to do as young actors.
“… where we would get on a bus, show up in New York, wait for our turn, cry our hearts out for a scene, and then be told, ‘OK, thanks.’ Meaning: game over. We used to call it ‘being OK thanksed’. Those experiences became our armour.”
