“They made me fix my teeth and work out and be sexy. Be sexy, how do I do that? ‘Go to the gym!’ Running in the gym and putting oil on my body and stuff, and it just turned out to be a long-form version of one of those male topless calendars, in a garage, carrying a tire, kind of greased up. Michael had a vision of a glistening male torso in the oil, and he was like, ‘That’s going to go in the trailer and sell tickets!’ And you know, what can you say? We could have made, I think, 400 ‘Chasing Amys’ for what we made ‘Armageddon’ for.”
Ben Affleck is still pissed he was FORCED to be “sexy” for his role in ‘Armageddon’

You the incredibly pretentious sites like The Hollywood Reporter or Entertainment Weekly with their laughably serious "roundtable" series as though they're "Meet The Press" or something. Like in the link below, the dolt from EW talks about watching "Once Upon a Time..." and how it "profoundly affected him" and he got choked up when hew drove around Los Angeles thinking about the movie. For fuck sakes, it's a movie! The way the interviewer simps for the people he's interviewing is awful!

I despise him and Matt so much. They are the first celebrities who made me realize that it’s all just a machine. The entertainment industry, I mean. I’ve come to dislike so many people in showbiz. I’m guessing that social media has played a role in this. It’s so easy to use it to find dirt on people. Plus, they sometimes make tone deaf comments as well and they get caught and called out on it. Something happens to entertainers when they make it. In some ways, it was better before the internet. Folks still had a mystery about them. So much easier to embellish and hide things simultaneously.
