Kevin Smith is still talking about his war of attrition with Ben Affleck


When I first saw these headlines about director Kevin Smith revealing that Ben Affleck no longer talks to him, I thought it was one of those clickbaity articles about old news. Didn’t Kevin Smith talk about this months ago? Yes he did, and we appreciate that Kevin Smith is a gossipy bitch. We love our own kind. Kevin said earlier this year that Ben didn’t contact him after his near deadly heart attack. Kevin attributed that to some quotes he gave in the summer of 2017, relating that Ben told him, in 1996 when they were filming Chasing Amy, that Ben felt like a serious actor because “Kissing another man is the hardest acting challenge an actor will ever face.” (Ben kissed Jason Lee in that movie.) Kevin said the quotes were from over 20 years ago but outlets ran headlines and articles suggesting they
were new. So Ben held a grudge apparently and over six months later couldn’t even be bothered to tell Kevin, who gave him leading roles early in his career, that he was happy he was still alive.

Anyway Kevin responded to a tweet wondering why he doesn’t talk to Ben anymore. He said it was because he told a bunch of stories about Ben essentially:

Nothing is more offensive to Ben than bad press and he will cut people out and lie about things that aren’t flattering to him.

Kevin is doing great, it’s nice to hear about him. He’s lost over 50 pounds since his heart attack. Like a lot of us he’s struggling with feeling low this time of year. He helped a struggling fan by relating a story about feeling better after visiting a set in Britain.

Also, he took a selfie with his wife outside Windsor Castle! One of us.

Happy Thanksgiving from the Smith/Schwalbach/Stanley family (and @corey_ring), from @crossroadskitchen! This was the first fully Vegan Thanksgiving for our family, in what I hope will be an ongoing tradition! I have so much to be thankful for this year – especially just being here to give thanks at all! But I’m incredibly thankful for my family, my friends and my followers – all of whom give up a little something so I can be me for a living! This turkey couldn’t do it without you! #KevinSmith #thanksgiving #harleyquinn #harleyquinnsmith #vegan #jenniferschwalbach #crossroadskitchen #losangeles
