Given that Chasing Amy was made over 20 years ago, Affleck's ideas about queer kissing and Hollywood have had plenty of time to evolve. When they wrapped the scene, Affleck said to Smith, "Now I'm a serious actor".

Jennifer Garner's ex's statement about kissing a man being the greatest acting challenge for an actor has Evan Rachel Wood seeing red.

After shooting a scene in which he and Lee lock lips, Affleck reportedly told Smith, "Now I'm a serious actor". Actress Evan Rachel Wood, in particular, was appalled at Affleck's long-ago comment, tweeting: "Try getting raped in a scene".

There were no security cameras on the premises, so investigators are following other leads, according to Gudmundson. The chief deputy also wouldn't say whether they believe it was one person or several who were involved.

Wood responded accordingly, "I'm sure he just thought it was a amusing, but even jokes like that are damaging", she said. She finished off by saying that of course women don't always enjoy the kissing they have to do in movies, even if they are "straight" kisses.

The Batman actor made the comments in 1997, according to the movie's director Kevin Smith, who recalled the anecdote at a screening of the romantic comedy at the Outfest Los Angeles film festival this week. "It has since been removed".

Wood explained that she deleted her previous tweets due to the backlash her comments received. Suddenly, she and other critics created a 2017 backlash to a 1997 controversy - one that Affleck has already expressed regret about, which you could learn from a simple Google search. "Well, the quote was from 20 years ago so I guess he did grow up" read the response. 'She's mad at something that I said and I didn't even say that, I mean, it was out of context and stuff like that'. Anytime I open my mouth, people write a story about him, not me, ' Smith said. 'So I don't pretend to a relationship we don't have any more or anything, but fuck do I feel awful'. "I'm not the guy that likes to rattle sabers or upset".
