An interview with Ben Affleck from 1997 has resurfaced and his quote about kissing a man is causing some controversy right now.
The actor was opening up about the Chasing Amy scene in which he kisses a man. He said, “a man kissing another man is the greatest acting challenge an actor can ever face,” according to Paper Magazine. Ben also said that after he finished filming the scene he declared himself a “serious actor.”
Westworld actress Evan Rachel Woodhas taken to Twitter to slam the comments.
“Try getting raped in a scene. Also, grow up Ben,” she wrote. “Also, you think us ladies like kissing all the guys we kiss? Just cause its a ‘straight kiss’ doesn’t mean we enjoy it. Ahem.”
One of Evan‘s fans pointed out that the quotes are two decades old and he has grown up. She replied by saying, “I’m sure he just thought it was a funny, but even jokes like that are damaging.”
