Ben Affleck has been quoted as saying:

“A man kissing another man is the greatest acting challenge an actor can ever face.”

Ugh, right?

When Evan Rachel Wood saw that in a headline on Tuesday, she snapped at the Justice League star, tweeting:

See, the quote was relayed over the weekend by Kevin Smith at Los Angeles’ Outfest, in which he was discussing the filming of the LGBT-friendly indie comedy Chasing Amy on its 20 year anniversary.

P.S. Wood has since acknowledged the timing, but stands firm in her commentary:
