C’mon you guys, knock it off…
Ben Affleck got so tired of everyone hating on him after the ‘Bennifer’years that he decided to make a bunch of really shitty movies and fade silently into obscurity. At least until Argo was released and did well enough in the box office that now he can come back out from under his rock and bitch about how mean everyone was to him.
“… like one of those fights you see on YouTube where one of them falls down and then a bunch of people who were standing around come over and kick the person. They don’t know them, they have no involvement in the fight, but they recognize a moment that they can get a free shot in, and for some people it’s just too much to resist. And that was definitely me at that point. I was the guy.”
Ah, yes. I can totally see how being a talentless movie-star making millions of dollars and being married to a beautiful actress can make you relate to some nobody, face-down in the concrete getting the shit kicked out of him by a bunch of thugs. I guess that’s how being a method actor works.
