“Correct me if I’m wrong, is this the debut of Ben Affleck’s penis on the screen?” asks an MTV interviewer in a press junket for the upcoming film Gone Girl.
Ben starts off treading a bit of word water:
“I don’t know, I try to get it in every movie…[Director David Fincher] said to me from the beginning, “this is a ‘warts-and-all’ movie. You can’t have any vanity. You have to see the naked underbelly of this character. It’s got to be, like, in Europe they just don’t give a shit about any of that stuff, and they just play real people, you know? And so that was the spirit of the thing, and we kinda stuck to that.”
But realizing he’s veering, Ben steers himself back on track like a seasoned pro:
“The penis is in there! It costs extra — it’s IMAX penis. You’ve gotta pay fifteen bucks to see it in 3-D — it looks better in 3-D,” adding, “you should know it was a very cold set.”
