Ben Gives Kevin a Fruit Basket

Since we're not allowed to show porn, yet we are talking about cockfighting...it brings up the venerable Ben Affleck and one of jayladdin's favorite's Kevin Smith.

from page six:

June 10, 2005 -- BEN Affleck can get a little nutty around his buddy Kevin Smith. The "Jersey Girl" director tells Maxim U.K. that during filming of the 2004 flop, Affleck used to pull a prank called a "Fruit Basket." Smith explains:

"I'd be sitting in the director's chair and I'd be watching a playback, and he'd stand behind me. Every once in a while I'd feel something on my neck. I'd be like, 'What the [bleep] was that?' And I'd turn around and he'd have his [scrotum] out and resting on my neck. I was like, 'What the [bleep] is wrong with you, dude?' What if it got out in the press that that's the kind of thing you do?' He's like, 'No one would ever [bleeping] believe you, sir.' "Besides exposing Af fleck's scrotal shenanigans, Smith tells the mag about his hate for Reese Witherspoon, who was once rude to Smith's ex-girl friend, Joey Lauren Adams. "I was at some party with Joey . . . and Reese had just got a part Joey was hoping to get," Smith recalled. "Joey said, 'Hey, Reese — I just wanted to say congratulations. I think you'll do really great with the part,' and Reese just gave her this dead-eyed look and was like, 'Whatever.' What a [bleeping] [bleep]-bag!"

Now this isn't the first incident that has been addressed by the press. No Ben does seem to like to expose himself to those around him. Chritina Applegate shares her story:

HL: That makes sense ... what is it like working with Ben Affleck on Surviving Christmas?

Applegate: He's very silly on set. I just wanted him to be quiet so I could work. There's something specific he did that made me laugh but it would ruin his reputation.

HL: If I gave you a flat-screen tv would you tell me?

Applegate: (Laughs) OK, they were doing an insert shot of a briefcase or something, and Ben just decided to put his "stuff" on the briefcase. He would always do things like that: mooning, sticking his tongue in the director's ear. He's very goofy. I just admire him.
