Matt Damon interviewed his longtime friend and Good Will Hunting costar Ben Affleck for Entertainment Weekly‘s February 2022 cover story. In the interview, Affleck spoke at length about his career, including what it was like to work with George Clooney on his new film The Tender Bar.
When asked about his role in Gigli, the film that Affleck starred in with Jennifer Lopez, Affleck had a lot to say. “For being a movie that's such a famous bomb and a disaster, very few people actually saw the movie,” he said.
“It doesn't work, by the way. It's a sort of horse's head in a cow's body.” He continued, recalling talking to Marty Brest, the director of the film, after it opened. “I remember talking to Marty the Friday it came out and I was like it's just spectacular, it's a tsunami, it couldn't be worse. This is as bad as it gets.”
