While promoting the comedy flop Jersey Girl in 2004, Ben Affleck appeared on the Canadian TV show Box-office, hosted by Anne-Marie Losique. An allegedly drunk Affleck summoned Losique to his lap before repeatedly groping and hugging her, while uttering a series of sexual overtures that would likely lead an average man to lose his job. “You usually show a lot more cleavage than this. What’s the story? Why are you covering it up today?” asked Affleck. “It’s Sunday morning? That never stopped you before from getting the titties out. Who’re you trying to fool? It’s Sunday morning. You could be in church. You should have that rack on display.” He later added, “Should we do a Janet Jackson thing? Are you wearing your nipple ring?” Later, it was reported that the interview was merely an act of “performance art” by Affleck, who pulled the same shtick with Losique in a promotional interview for his film Paycheck back in 2003.
Yes. Performance Art. I would have said the same thing.
