Remember back in 2003 when it seemed actor Ben Affleck appeared to have been abducted by the body snatchers? And in his place was some other guy who was dating Jennifer Lopez, starring in her videos and making really bad movies, like Gigli and Daredevil? Well, it turns out Affleck felt that way too.

The actor turned director got confessional with Details magazine and admitted he wasn’t really “that” dude. “I got shorthanded as That Guy: Jennifer Lopez, movies bombed, therefore he must be sort of a thoughtless dilettante, solipsistic consumer blahblahblah…” Affleck told Details. “If you were looking at that one-liner on me in 2003, which was definitely the anns horribilis [laughs] of my life…I don’t know what the lesson is except you have to find your compass.”

So it wasn’t exactly all Lopez’s fault, but him slathering tanning oil on her body in the “Jenny From the Block” video wasn’t exactly a high point for him as an actor. Affleck also explained how he was able turn things around during that phase of his life.

“I just said, I don’t want to do it anymore. This is horrible. I don’t want to be in this spotlight, this glare, this way,” Affleck told Details. ” It’s tawdry, it’s ugly it’s oppressive and it’s inane. So I’m going to try to get away.”

And nine years, three children and a successful marriage to his  actress wife Jennifer Garner later he did. No offense, J.Lo.

Howdy, i read your blog occasionally and i own a similar one and i was just wondering if you get a lot of spam remarks? If so how do you protect against it, any plugin or anything you can suggest? I get so much lately it’s driving me crazy so any help is very much appreciated.

Howdy would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with? I’m going to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a tough time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique. P.S Apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!
