Ben Affleck receives honorary doctorate

EDITORS PLEASE NOTE: THIS EDIT CONTAINS MATERIAL WHICH WAS ORIGINALLY 4:3 A Hollywood star, two times Oscar winner and on Sunday (May 26) Ben Affleck was on the receiving end of yet another award. The "Argo" director was presented with an honorary doctorate of fine arts degree from prestigious Brown University. Good reason to be all smiles, as according to Affleck, this will put him ahead of acting buddy Matt Damon. SOUNDBITE: Actor Ben Affleck, saying (English): "This is a spectacular honor for me. Among other things today, in terms of higher education, I passed Matt Damon ... In truth, my mother is here. This means a lot to her. She never got to see me graduate from any higher education at all. So mom, this is for you. I love you. Madame President, thank you very much. Brown class of 2013, go get 'em!" But while Affleck certainly fits in with the rest of the crowd, there's one major difference: the star didn't have to sweat through any final exams.
