He said the director has passed away, and I don't think he mentioned if he had starred in one of his movies or not.

A dead, creepy, famous director who approached Rob Schneider for a role before he was famous, but no word on what type of role/movie it was.

I mean, that could be anybody.

Depends on what he means by famous, too.

It's irrelevant. He described him as a director who worked in Hollywood until he died, described him as "gross" and implied that he himself is just one person that the director sexually harassed. Whether he directed Citizen Kane or Bucky the Dog Went to Piano School, it's completely irrelevant.

Dude, you're way overthinking it. Just help her out.

I know. It might just be a self-conscious thing.

I'd argue that Affleck has cleaned up his act because 2003 was pretty much around the time when he had personal issues including gambling debts and alcoholism, but I'm not excusing his behavior because he has decided to clean up his act. If it was reported that he groped a woman about 2 years ago, then that would make me raise an eyebrow.

He's still drinking though. Look at the past paparazzi pictures. Dude is bloated as fuck and looks really bad.

He isn't the same man he was 14 years ago, but at the same time, I don't think he ever apologized for this incident and here he is trying to be holier than thou in this Weinstein case and just ignoring his brother's stuff too.

There may be other women after Hilarie Burton. Let's see how this plays out.

But right now as a DC fan and as an Affleck fan, this shit is really really disappointing.
