Ben Affleck is Happy Iran Wants to Respond to "Argo" With Its Own Film

Ben Affleck is Happy Iran Wants to Respond to "Argo" With Its Own FilmSubmit Comment
After Ben Affleck's "Argo" movie hit theaters, the government of Iran immediately expressed their negative opinion of the film, stating that it's historically inaccurate. And because of that, it was recently announced that Iran will fund a film, called "The General Staff," that will be the country's answer to "Argo."

In a new interview with THR, Affleck revealed that he is excited that Iran feels that it needs to do this. "You have to understand, this is a sort of Stalinist regime in this place that is extremely repressive," he said. "It's governing a nation full of millions of wonderful, amazing people, so to be part of this movie 'Argo' that seems to have kids up and paying attention so this Stalinist regime feels the need to push back somehow, I think is a tremendous badge of honor."

"Argo" grossed $167 million worldwide on a $45 million budget and was recently nominated for a Best Picture Oscar.

Hopefully he'll have such glowing praise when they take a sword to his neck.

I like how he thinks it's all about him, though.

What a narcissist.

I think that he would have sounded smarter if he had used the term "stalinist regime" one more time.

@stapes: You and I know Affleck knows nothing about Stalinist anything,for if he did, he would confuse a strain of strongman Communist totalitarianism with what's going on in Iran, and it only goes to show me Affleck, good director or not, is one of those pretentious pretty people who can recite what they've read but understand none of it.

wouldn't.

I won't even bemoan the lack of edit button, which is so far removed from reality here Alex jokes about it like he's mocking a lack of Baskin Robbins on the moon.
