Damon Sticks Up for Ben Affleck
Screen hunk Matt Damon has leaped to the defense of his pal Ben Affleck
after he was criticized over a succession of movie flops.
Critics had a field day tearing apart movies such as Gigli two years
- in which he starred alongside his then-fiancée Jennifer
Lopez - but Damon insists Affleck should be judged by his acting
prowess, not his unfortunate choices.
He says, "What people forget is that Ben is a terrific actor.
Maybe he hasn't made the best choices these past couple of years, but he's
just made a movie called Truth, Justice and the American Way that is going
to put him right back on top again.
"Ben is a guy who just doesn't care about what the public is going
to make of the way he lives his life."
