Ben Affleck Plans to Donate Residuals From Weinstein Films to Charity

Ben Affleck is planning on donating further profits from his Weinstein and Miramax films to an anti-sexual assault charity.

The 45-year-old actor explained that he wants to follow in the footsteps of his friend Kevin Smith, who will also be making the same donations to a good cause.

“Once Kevin suggested that, I decided to do the same thing, so any further residuals that I get from a Miramax or a Weinstein movie will go either to FI or to RAINN,” Ben said in an interview with Fox 5 DC.

He added, “I just didn’t want to cash any more checks from the guy, you know? Some people probably couldn’t afford to give all their residuals away, but even if you do 10%, that’s something.”

Ben has starred in several films produced by the Weinstein Company, including Good Will Hunting.

    When is Affleck going to apologize for the women he harassed? Because he only said he was sorry to one of them, after she called him out 14 years later.
