After appearing in a turkey like Jersey Girl, Ben, we can’t say we blame you for wanting nada to do with the Garden State crew!
Apparently, starring in a big-screen failure as huge as Jersey Girl has tainted Ben Affleck for life. The Boston-bred star has no love for the Dirty Jerz – or its most famous residents, the Jersey Shore cast .
While promoting his new move (hopefully NOT a stinker) The Company Men, at the Sundance Film Festival, Ben, 37, revealed that he’s never seen an episode of the hit MTV reality show, nor is he planning to.
“”[With kids] my bandwidth is narrow in terms of what I can watch.” he told reporters.
Poor Ben. We sympathize, really. There are very few who an forget his epic fail – a film directed by his pal Kevin Smith and co-starring his then-fiancee Jennifer Lopez. His following films were a series of flops that almost put Ben in the black hole of Hollywood – until he earned a Golden Globe nod for Hollywoodland, that is.
We get it. It’s taken years for Ben to restore his image and put himself firmly back in the good graces of fans (and, more importantly, directors), so it makes sense that’s he’s keeping his focus on his girls, wife Jennifer Garner, 38, and daughters Violet, 4, and Seraphina, 1.
But Ben, we know that you don’t have another project in the pipeline since wrapping your second directorial effort The Town. Really, we think you should probably at least attempt to fit Snooki, Pauly D, and The Situation into your appointment viewing.
You won’t be disappointed, we swear. In fact, you might even start to love Jersey – and its smell – all over again. Just saying…
