During a recent appearance on ‘The Drew Barrymore Show‘ Sienna Miller talked about what it was like filming with Ben Affleck back in 2016.
The two actors starred in the gangster drama ‘Live by Night’ in which Miller plays Affleck’s love interest. It was an important project for Affleck, as he was also serving as the director.
But according to Miller, she and Affleck had zero romantic chemistry.
Ben Affleck was like my brother [on set]. I’ve never laughed so much in my life. I mean that sounds like a ridiculous thing to say and like a name dropping thing to say, but I actually mean it. We had zero chemistry whatsoever. It was hysterical. We were supposed to be in love. We could not be less attracted to each other, which was hysterical. He has an enormous head, I have a small one, so they’d have to like put me slightly ahead of him.
Damn, okay then. Why you gotta call out his enormous head like that? Perhaps the audience picked up on the lack of chemistry because the movie bombed at the box office. It made just $22 million worldwide. It made just $10 million here in the states. It worked with a budget of $90 million, so yeah, that sh*t was a legit failure.
You can catch Miller in the upcoming Netflix thriller series, Anatomy of a Scandal, which is set to launch on April 15.
As for Affleck? Just look out the window. You’ll probably be able to see his head.
