Is this why his nickname is Big Ben?!
Ben Affleck's anatomy was apparently the star of the show at Sunday night's Producers' Guild Awards, but the 41-year-old actor took it all in stride and even cracked a joke about it himself.
Producer Chuck Lorre took the stage to accept the Norman Lear Achievement Award in Television, and during his acceptance speech he chatted about a run-in with Affleck in the men's room at the Golden Globes last weekend. "Yes, I peeked, and yes, he can play Batman," Lorre quipped, later making a reference to a "Ben Affleck chubby."
Later on, Ben hit the stage to present the award for Best Picture, of course with the Batman theme song playing. Ben told the audience:
- "I want to thank someone tonight. Evidently, I was in the bar briefly and I came back to my seat and someone said, 'You know there was a guy on stage who said you have a big d*ck.' I was like, 'You know? Isn't that always how it goes. The one time it happens, I miss it.' Thank you very much. Whoever you are God bless you. I'm often confused with Matt Damon but rarely with Michael Fassbender, so it's a nice change."
Wow! Who knew? And lucky Jen Garner...
