Ben Affleck has been quoted as saying:
“A man kissing another man is the greatest acting challenge an actor can ever face.”
When Evan Rachel Wood saw that in a headline on Tuesday, she snapped at the Justice League star, tweeting:
The thing is though, Ben probably has grown up since the remark. Since he said it over 20 years ago.
The writer-director was sharing the story of how his pals Affleck and Jason Lee were both trepidatious about the scene in which they share a kiss, and how that was a common attitude back then.
So yeah, 24-year-old Ben Affleck does sound like kind of a dipshit. Thankfully, he seems to have a much more progressive attitude these days.
P.S. Wood has since acknowledged the timing, but stands firm in her commentary:
Also, you think us ladies like kissing all the guys we kiss? Just cause its a “straight kiss” doesnt mean we enjoy it. Ahem.
