    Big Hollywood (Breitbart) ^ | October 12, 2017 | Daniel Nussbaum
    A second woman has come forward with allegations that actor Ben Affleck touched her inappropriately at a Hollywood function. Makeup artist Annamarie Tendler took to Twitter Wednesday night to accuse Affleck of grabbing her backside at a Golden Globes party in 2014, hours after the actor apologized for acting “inappropriately” when he apparently groped actress Hilarie Burton during a taping of MTV’s Total Request Live in 2003. “I would also love to get an apology from Ben Affleck who grabbed my ass at a Golden Globes party in 2014,” Tendler wrote in the first of a series of messages on...

    After making a public statement about the sexual-abuse allegations against Harvey Weinstein, Ben Affleck is facing accusations of his own. The actress Hilarie Burton tweeted yesterday that Affleck grabbed her breast while she was interviewing him on TRL in the mid-200os. (You can see video of the alleged assault here). And this afternoon, Hollywood makeup artist Annamarie Tendler tweeted that Affleck groped her at a Golden Globes party in 2014. “He walked by me, cupped my butt and pressed his finger into my crack,” she wrote. Tendler added, “Like most women in these situations I didn’t say anything but I...

    In a sign that the controversy over the producer Harvey Weinstein could engulf other people in the film industry, the actress Rose McGowan accused Ben Affleck of lying on Tuesday about his knowledge of Mr. Weinstein’s alleged sexual harassment and assaults of women. Ms. McGowan, in a tweet and a subsequent email exchange with The New York Times on Tuesday night, said she had told Mr. Affleck that Mr. Weinstein had behaved inappropriately with her. Mr. Affleck, who rose to stardom with help from Mr. Weinstein on the 1997 film “Good Will Hunting,” had said earlier Tuesday that he was...

    Ignoring the politics of it for the moment, check out this video of Sam Harris debating Ben Affleck on Bill Maher’s Real Time show. I’ll teach you how to spot cognitive dissonance in the clip. Watch for the moment Ben has to hallucinate Sam’s opinion from the reasonable position that many Muslims worldwide have non-liberal views to an hallucination about “All Muslims are bad.” Sam and Bill both clarify their viewpoints, with data, but Ben is struck deaf to it. All he can hear is the absurd absolute “all.” He is literally hallucinating. I mean that literally. If you asked...
  • Ben Affleck’s ‘Live by Night’ Flop Results in $75 Million Loss

    Variety ^ | January 27, 2017 GMT | Brent Lang
    “Live By Night” mostly fired blanks when it debuted in theaters last December, and its failure has resulted in a lot of financial carnage. The expensive gangster picture was a passion project for Ben Affleck, who directed, wrote, produced, and starred in the story of a Florida rum runner. But critics ripped the picture, calling it dramatically inert. That’s left Warner Bros., the studio behind the film flop, looking at a $75 million loss, according to insiders with knowledge of its financing and rival studio executives. “Live By Night” has made $16.5 million globally, and is not expected to have...
  • BEN AFFLECK HAS ANOTHER NINE SLAVEHOLDER ANCESTORS FROM THROUGHOUT THE SOUTH (214 slaves total)

    Big Government ^ | April 27, 2015
    Movie star Ben Affleck has another nine slaveholder ancestors from Mississippi, Arkansas, Tennessee, North Carolina, and Virginia, according to publicly available Census records and genealogy research conducted by Breitbart News. Last week, Affleck admitted that he successfully pressured Harvard professor Henry Louis Gates to edit his Georgia slaveholding ancestor, Benjamin Cole, out of an episode of the PBS series “Finding Your Roots” that featured his family history. This brings the number of Affleck’s known slaveholder ancestors to 12, who owned a total of 214 slaves. The relative ease with which Breitbart News was able to find these nine additional slaveholding...

    The most controversial thing I said was: “We have to be able to criticize bad ideas, and Islam is the Mother lode of bad ideas.” This statement has been met with countless charges of “bigotry” and “racism” online and in the media. But imagine that the year is 1970, and I said: “Communism is the Mother lode of bad ideas.” How reasonable would it be to attack me as a “racist” or as someone who harbors an irrational hatred of Russians, Ukrainians, Chinese, etc. This is precisely the situation I am in. My criticism of Islam is a criticism of...

    Fox News pundit Bill O'Reilly came down hard on Hollywood’s Ben Affleck for comments he made in defense of Islam on a recent television appearance, saying the actor is living in denial. Mr. O'Reilly made the remarks while discussing the recent trade of barbs between Mr. Affleck and HBO host Bill Maher, when the former called the latter “racist” and “gross” for saying that liberals are closing their eyes to the dangers of radical Islam. Mr. O'Reilly then reminded how children in the Middle East were cheering in the streets in the days that followed the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist...

    When Jennifer Garner told a Detroit radio station that she and her husband Ben Affleck would spend the summer in Detroit while Affleck was working on the Batman-Superman blockbuster, it made national news. MLive gushed: "If you love trying to track down celebrities in Detroit, then you'll want to be on the lookout in the coming months for one of Hollywood's biggest power couples." What wasn't reported is that Michigan taxpayers could pay part of the rent for the Hollywood power couple's stay in the state. Affleck has made $10 million or more eight times for acting in a movie,...

    "Argo" was the best drama winner at Sunday's Golden Globe Awards, beating out the Civil War epic "Lincoln," which had emerged as an awards-season favorite. The Iran hostage thriller also claimed the directing prize for Ben Affleck, a prize that normally bodes well for an Academy Award win -- except he missed out on an Oscar nomination this time. Affleck is now in an unusual position during Hollywood's long awards season, taking home the top filmmaking trophy at the second-highest film honors knowing he does not have a shot at an Oscar. 48 PHOTOS Golden Globes 2013 show highlights And...

    Ben Affleck has been off the radar for a while, coming out of his married-with-kidslife only for bigger films (and maybe to cheat!). We all thought he was taking time off to prepare for his political career, but he’s reportedly nixed it amidst fear of all his scandals which would be stirred up in the campaign process! The father of three has a dark past, which he isn’t eager to put back on the radar! An insider reported his decision to National Enquirer, print edition January 21, 2013. “The real reason he’s decided not to run for US Senate” is...

    Oscar-winning Cambridge native Ben Affleck -- who played a congressman in the 2009 political thriller “State of Play” -- isn't ruling out a real-life run for office in the pending Massachusetts race to fill Sen. John Kerry's seat but downplayed the idea in an interview aired today. In a segment airing today on CBS News’ “Face the Nation,” a coy Affleck, 40, tells host Bob Schieffer with a nervous laugh, “Well, for one thing, the state of Massachusetts currently has two extraordinary senators, so there is no vacancy,” when pressed by Schieffer on whether he’ll run for fellow Democrat Kerry’s...
