Ben Affleck learned the hard way not to take long, pensive-looking pauses in interviews.
The Live by Night star sat down with BBC Radio 1 recently, where he finally confirmed that he's seen that heartbreakingly funny meme of himself seated next to Batman V. Superman co-star, Henry Cavill, while appearing despondent as a sad melody plays.
"It taught me not to do interviews with Henry Cavill, where I don't say anything, and they can lay Simon & Garfunkel tracks over it," the 44-year-old actor joked was the main thing he learned working on the superhero movie. "That's one thing I learned."
Watch Ben Affleck's reaction, as well as the instant-classic meme that started it all, in the video below.
Cheer up, Ben!
In all seriousness, the actor did continue on to say that playing Batman was a real eye-opener for him.
"I had not made a movie of that scale," Affleck revealed. "The last big blockbuster movie I made, was Armageddon, which was in 1997."
"The technology had really changed how those movies are being made, and it was fascinating," he added.
Live by Night is in theaters now.
