What Should Ben Affleck Do With $1.50 a Day?

Robert Kessler · 04/23/13 11:21PM

Ben Affleck, an actor who's won an Academy Award for pretty much everything but acting, is joining the Live Below The Line challenge, which aims to raise awareness about global poverty. As a part of the challenge, Affleck and other participants will only be allowed to spend $1.50 a day on food and drink from April 29 to May 3. That is not a lot of money!

Ben Affleck's first film, here in two parts, is straight-up atrocious. Also it's called I Killed My Lesbian Wife, so A+.

Please God No More Boston Gangster Movies

Hamilton Nolan · 02/05/13 06:03PM

Today, in movie news, we learn that Johnny Depp will be playing the role of notorious Boston gangster Whitey Bulger in an upcoming film based on Bulger's life. This should not be confused with the other Whitey Bulger Boston gangster movie that Ben Affleck will be making after he makes a movie based on a Dennis Lehane novel that is also about Boston gangsters.

Here Are This Year's Affleck-Snubbing, Lincoln-Lauding, MacFarlane-Dreading Oscar Nominations

Max Read · 01/10/13 09:14AM

Actress Emma Stone and Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane — this year's host — got up nice and early to tell some really atrocious jokes and announce this year's Oscar nominations. If you were smart enough to avoid this stupid ceremony, here's what's totally surprising: neither Zero Dark Thirty's Kathryn Bigelow nor Argo's Ben Affleck received Best Director nominations, even though both directors were considered locks and both movies are nominated for Best Picture.

Argo Is a Perfect Piece of 2012 Pop Culture

Rich Juzwiak · 10/12/12 01:55PM

Argo is Sesame Street for grownups. It's a history lesson that goes down like candy, a recreation of a little-known component of the Iran hostage crisis rendered into a breathless two-hour thriller. It's brilliant and clear, intense and hysterical and its moments of profundity are there for the consuming, should you be interested in that sort of thing. It also offers more of a visceral thrill than anything else I've seen this year or during most years. It's diabolical infotainment.

The Good Will Hunting House Is Up For Grabs

Leah Beckmann · 11/23/11 03:43PM

No, not the shitty old shack in the movie where Ben Affleck goes to pick up Matt Damon each day before work, except in that last scene because Matt Damon leaves to make something of himself. Not that house! Rather this is the house where Matt and Ben lived while they were writing the screenplay.

Another Burglary Crew Copies Ben Affleck Movie

Maureen O'Connor · 10/18/11 04:18PM

Ways to judge a crime movie: Box office earnings, critical acclaim, spin-off crimes. Ben Affleck's The Town performed decently by the first two standards, but on that third standard, The Town really knocked it out of the park!

Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner Are Having Another Baby

Maureen O'Connor · 08/23/11 10:23AM

Bennifer 2.0 has a bun in the oven. Will and Jada Smith might be breaking up. Amy Winehouse's toxicology report is complete. Katie Holmes has a "cupcake emergency." Tuesday gossip struggles to avoid the Kardashians.

House Republicans Now Just Watching Ben Affleck Movies

Jim Newell · 07/27/11 11:31AM

Counselors at the youth summer camp that we know more commonly as the "House Republican Caucus of the 112th Congress" penciled in time for a movie yesterday! All of the campers were so excited to relax a little bit after pretending to be members of Congress for so long. And better yet, they got to watch an R-rated movie — without their parents' permission! Is that even legal?

Sloppy Drunk Lindsay Lohan Cries and Screams Alone at a Bar

Maureen O'Connor · 07/25/11 10:55AM

Lindsay Lohan screams drunkenly into the void. Kristin Cavallari's fiance dumps her. Leighton Meester sues her mother. Chris Evans is "drowning" in "raging insecurity." Ben Affleck has Bieber hair. Monday gossip is a lost cause.
