Ben Affleck: Gimme Shelter!

Ben Affleck speaks about the new short film he directed, Gimme Shelter, at the United Nations Headquarters on Wednesday (December 17) in New York City.

The four-minute documentary highlights humanitarian issues in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

“We made this film in order to focus attention on the humanitarian crisis in the DRC at a time when too much of the world is indifferent or looking the other way,” said Ben. “The suffering and loss we’ve all seen first-hand is staggering – it is beyond belief.”

He also poked fun at Angelina Jolie, UNHCR‘s most visible spokesperson: “UNHCR needs to find a Goodwill Ambassador who can get some sort of press attention.”

    Someone said “he’s coming in late to the whole thing”, really? And what makes you think that? Because JustJared JUST NOW starts posting about it. Maybe he’s just now taking his efforts public. But, he’s actually been over to Congo long before all the other celebrities decided it was their passion. While everyone else (including Damon and Clooney) was making the public aware of the situation in Darfur over the past couple of years, Ben was QUIETLY going over to Congo to see the devastation there. Kudos for him for trying to do something to bring awareness to a horrific situation. And shame on you for assuming things that you do not know.

    Ben is a good man who does things in a private manner. That is why God blesses him with a beautiful family. His is just giving back and trying to inspire others to do what he has always done in his own quiet way. If you can’t appreciate that, then you are to be pitied.

    Poor Misty #29, have you totally lost your mind? Ben is no way ugly. He looks so cute, he reminds me of Violet when he is clear shaven. I see where she got her deep set eyes and even some of his expressions are so like his little girl’s. Like his wife said, “he is tall dark and handsome. An all around wonderful guy”

    You adoring fans are mental midgets, this man is fugly, and
    when he speaks he has spit all over his mouth gross.and his lips keep getting smaller and smaller, as his wifey lips get bigger and bigger. Just because you find him good looking doesn’t make it so ok! Having said that these celebs do this for photo opts, to make themselves more likeable to you fans so that you can go out and see their ****** movies and we all know that benny and wifey suck at that, only people with power like polticians can do anything about the congo ok so get educated! Angie said it best she does charity work to get away from the bad press. but at least she gives alot of money to these charities. Hey benny why don’t you give some of your millions away like angie maybe people will respect you more, instead of gambling your money in the internet! another thing ben please don’t try to be funny, you and clooney both suck at that, and lastly if you are doing it for future office aspirations forget about it who in their right mind will vote for you! They had a poll on cnnand people voted to say that they would never vote for this cheesy actor. so stick to your daddy duties , and your drinking and gambling, on the net .
