Actor Ben Affleck’s arrogance, self-importance and sense of entitlement know know bounds.
There are some really class acts in Hollywood, don’t get me wrong. Tom Selleck and Sandra Bullock come immediately to mind. There are dozens, if not hundreds, of others.
But Affleck clearly isn’t one of them.
On Tuesday he appeared on Morning Edition to flog his latest movie (one which I can guarantee you I will NOT be watching).
Show anchor Steve Inskeep led the loony left-wing star onto his soapbox, where he trashed “corporate America” for its greed and self-indulgence.
I’ve seen a lot of pots calling the kettle black, but he really put himself at the top of the moron pile with his rant.
Affleck really needs someone to shove a mirror in his face. And force him to actually look into it.
According to this yahoo, it’s completely okay for Affleck to get paid $250,000 just to show up at a casino opening, but it’s not okay for a CEO to get paid for actually creating jobs that employ Americans.
People like Affleck make me want to puke.
They despise the system that is responsible for making them multi-millionaires.
Is capitalism perfect? No, of course not. But it’s got a lot more going for it than the likes of Affleck.
