you can only dream, Ben.

I guess he is looking for some publicity he is not halfe of jolie….please

He was KIDDING, dummies. @ 12/19/2008 at 10:45 am

The guy was JOKING, damn. He was paying her and the UN a compliment, HELLO?? I mean, just goes to show how much star power she does have, when his little throwaway line gets THIS much press. Now you see why Jen Maniston is so succesful getting press…any loser out there can say the magic words, ‘Angelina Jolie,’ and it’s good for at LEAST 2-3 days of press, blog, and talk show coverage. I’ve never seen anything like it.


When I read the comments at the trash US site, I couldn’t believe how many people did not understand that this was a joke….

Are people really as stupid as they sound…? If so, that is scarey!

The joke was said with a tone of sarcasm that, I guess only intelligent brains could comprehend.

Banging my head against the wall….No wonder our country is in the shape it is, we got a bunch of stupid idiots out there….

LOL . . .that Ben Affleck is so funny. He say the most dumbest things. I mean Ben Affleck he has massive starpower . . .think of all the huge movies he done . . . oh sorry that is Matt Damon.

Even though it was lame, I am so glad he was joking for his sake… Cause he would have been ripped a new one…

haha, ben is a big joke! he wishes that he is bigger than jolie..sorry ben, you lose! angelina is the best and she does it better than anybody else out there! way to go angie!!!

of course he was joking, he knows that. The words and the title are being taken out of context for the sake of hits.

My goodness it was a joke. It’s call A JOKE…SARCASM.

just everybody wants to use her big name.
what a laugh !
it’s prove his name is SMALL

The title is highly misleading. It was a joke. Funny ha-ha. People should read the whole piece before writing a comment about it:

“Ben Affleck just doesn’t think Angelina Jolie has the star power necessary to be a goodwill ambassador for the United Nations.

At least that’s what he joked about at the press conference for his short movie, Gimme Shelter, in NYC on Wednesday.

‘UNHCR has to find a goodwill ambassador who will get the attention of the president because the woman they’ve got is not high profile enough’, Affleck said.”

Ben, sit your gummy ass down and shut up.

LOL . . .that Ben Affleck is so funny. He say the most dumbest things. I mean Ben Affleck he has massive starpower . . .think of all the huge movies he done . . . oh sorry that is Matt Damon.

LOL, 15! Loved your comment!! kkkkkkkkkkkkkkk

I REALLY, REALLY HOPE that Ben Affleck were joking!

Because, serisiosly, who would be that person? He or his wife?
Just because he started to serve food for unfortunate people NOW he would want to have a strong opinion about these subjects?
Beside, a goodwill ambassador for the United Nations doesn’t need to be just someone with “star power”, it’s ncessary to be someone who cares and that really want to make a differece… and it’s working on it.

Otherwise, if the ‘star power’ is what would metter, than Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan, Zac Efron, Vanessa Hudgens or even Britney…

Can you imagine?


and he has? – that’s what i was thinking when i read the title of this thread but after reading the article, i’ve realized that it was a joke. lol. looks like Jolie & Pitt are both powerful because when other celebs uses their name, they are heard and noticed.. lol.

Oh you Brangelina fanbots, stop taking things so seriously.


Get over yourselves.
