There have been a few ridiculous comparisons over the years but it seems that 2012 is intent on making the most in one year. Earlier this year people tried to claim that One Direction were the new Beatles, which made me physically sick, and now they are trying to claim that Ben Affleck is the new Clint Eastwood.
This just makes my blood boil. Ben Affleck has been an average actor for his whole career whereas Clint Eastwood will go down as a Hollywood legend. Yet, because Ben has directed a couple of good movies, people are saying trying to compare him to Clint.
This is ridic! Clint Eastwood has directed over 30 films in his career and has been nominated for numerous awards, including Oscars, four of which he has won. Ben Affleck has only just directed his third movie and, while it may be good, it is not Oscar worthy.
Clint Eastwood was a fantastic actor and still is, whereas Ben Affleck is not. Clint Eastwood is a world class director, whereas Ben Affleck is not. Clint Eastwood will forever be remembered as a Hollywood legend, whereas Ben Affleck will not. There is only one Clint Eastwood and his achievements will never be matched. Arriba!!
