Ben Affleck Regrets His Directorial Debut

You’re probably assuming that Ben Affleck is talking Gone Baby Gone which starred his brother Casey Affleck and Amy Ryan. But no, that was not his directorial film debut. The name of that masterpiece was I Killed My Lesbian Wife, Hung Her on a Meat Hook, and Now I Have a Three-Picture Deal With Disney.

Affleck, seen here yesterday looking all handsome at LAX, reveals that the first film he directed was shot back in 1993. “It’s horrible. It’s atrocious. I knew I wanted to be a director, and I did a couple of short films, and this is the only one that haunts me. I’m not proud of it,” Ben told Entertainment Weekly.

“It looks like it was made by someone who has no prospects, no promise,” he added. Luckily he recovered from that. Ben Affleck’s latest film, The Town, is in theaters on September 17, 2010.
