During his acceptance speech at the Aritos Awards in LA on Monday, Ben Affleck explained how he was set to direct Homeland but didn’t because Jennifer Garner wouldn’t let him. *Makes whip cracking sound*
“It’s true! I was going to do Homeland,” he explained, after the show’s casting director, Libby Goldstein, jokingly called him (and Garner) out during her remarks. (“She had gotten a film/With some sort of thing/And she wanted him home/Well, she does have the ring!” Goldstein rhymed during her speech).
“I liked the show. I signed on. The guys were ready. I don’t want to blame it on ‘her,’ but my wife and I have an arrangement where when she works, I don’t work and when I work, she doesn’t work,” Affleck shared. “She said, ‘I have this movie, it’s 10 weeks, it’s in Atlanta.’ I said, ‘Okay, forget it. I’m sure nothing will happen with it anyway.’”
“Let me tell you something: I hate that f—ing show,”Us
Now Ben Affleck is bitter and full of a regret so intense it’ll eat at him until he explodes in a fit of rage at the most random moment. Like when Jennifer forgets to put ham in his sandwich. “There’s no ham. There’s NO god damn ham! Ahhhhhhhh!” *Throws glass of juice at Jennifer’s head*
