#ThrowbackThursday: Before Ben Affleck Starred In The Major Hit Gone Girl, He Almost Sunk His Acting Career With Gigli! Revisit The Film Ben Wishes He Could Erase From IMBD!
Gigli is infamous for primarily two reasons:
1.It's ridiculously bad.
2.Jennifer Lopez also starred in the film which is significant because she and Ben were dating at the time. The movie is one of the few remaining testaments to their much talked-about relationship!
Before Gigli, Ben had made a respectable name for himself in the movie business with serious films like Good Will Hunting(for which he won an Oscar), and Pearl Harbor.
Given Ben's resume prior to Gigli, it confused critics and fans as to why he decided to star in a film about a goofy Los Angeles 'mobster' who is ordered to kidnap the mentally handicapped brother of his boss' rival. Pegged as a 'romantic-comedy,' Gigli failed to deliver on both the romance and the comedy.
