Affleck’s Same Sex Kiss

Another story came out of Outfest.  Director Kevin Smith was hosting a screening of the 20th anniversary of Chasing Amy, and he made a startling revelation.  Ben Affleck said, “A man kissing another man is the greatest acting challenge an actor can ever face.”  Funny, I never found it difficult in the slightest.  Of course, Affleck made this revelation years before he went out and enthusiastically promoted Gigli – talk about your acting challenges!  After he filmed the Amy scene, Affleck is said to have quipped, “Now, I’m a serious actor”.  After hearing all this sturm und drang, one actress was less than impressed.  Evan Rachel Wood Tweeted: “Try getting raped in a scene.  Also, grow up Ben.  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.”
