Ben Affleck is staying true to his word.
Just a week after vowing to be “part of the solution” regarding Hollywood’s sexual harassment problem, the actor revealed he will be donating any future earnings from a Harvey Weinstein or Miramax film to charity.
In an interview promoting Justice League, Affleck was asked about Kevin Smith‘s decision to donate the residuals from his Weinstein-produced films to nonprofit Women in Film — and wouldn’t you know it, good ol’ Benny boy decided to the same thing!
“It’s funny that you mention that. 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 F.I. or to RAINN. One is Film Independent, and the other is a women’s organization… I just didn’t want to cash any more checks from the guy, you know?”
We’re glad to see the Jersey Girl actor is trying to be part of the solution — but there’s more work to be done than giving up a few tained residual checks.
