If there’s one thing the internet loves, it’s capturing celebrities at embarrassing moments and editing the shit out of the footage.
Leo DiCaprio enjoying a nice, brisk walk has been put into every conceivable scenario. Keanu Reeves will never live down his decision to sit for a goddamn second to eat a sandwich.
And the only thing Ben Affleck could hate more than this video is his decision to appear in ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,‘ aka Mass-Murderer vs One-Kill-Man, in the first place:
While we might never know if Affleck was legit sad over the film’s reception or if he was just tired and couldn’t give a shit about critics (my money’s on the second one), he’s definitely seen that video and has actually taken it all in good fun.
After being asked by BBC Radio what he learnt as a director and actor from ‘Batman v Superman,’ Affleck brought up his ridiculous decision to sit quietly and politely while someone else spoke:
“It taught me not to do interviews with Henry Cavill where I don’t say anything and they can lay Simon & Garfunkel tracks over it.”“That’s one thing I learned.”
If there was indeed a lesson to be learned here (other than “the internet will fuck you up”), not sitting quietly next to Henry Cavill was definitely it.
He followed this up by saying, regardless of its problems, it was still a learning experience doing a blockbuster for the first time since he went into space to blow up an asteroid:
“I learned a ton, actually, making that movie,”
“I had not made a movie of that scale. I didn’t know what the technology was capable of doing nowadays.“The last big blockbustery movie I made was Armageddon, which was in 1997.”
But remember, kids: Silence. Not even once.
