Ben Affleck Sets The Record Straight Once And For ALL:
Ben said, “I ended the interview… I thought, ‘Wow, I should do more honest, exploratory, self-evaluating things.’ And then I started seeing all of this stuff come up on Twitter and I was like, ‘What is this?’” He added, “I sort of researched and saw that one of these websites had done the clickbait thing of like, ‘You won’t believe what he said! Click on this! Come to our site!’ And I looked on it, and they had taken the conversation that I had had for two hours and made it seem as if I was saying the exact opposite of what I said.” He even said, “Just made me out to be the worst, most insensitive, stupid, awful guy.”
