Affleck's embarrassing debut film

Ben Affleck's directorial debut has been posted on the internet.

The actor and director's latest film Argo won an Oscar this week, but back in 1993, Ben made his first foray into filmmaking with I Killed My Lesbian Wife, Ηung Ηer On A Μeathook And Νow I Have A Three-Picture Deal With Disney, which can now be found on YouTube.

The dark comedy is meant to be a satire on Hollywood, but is a long way from award-winning works Gone Baby Gone, The Town and Argo, which Ben has gone on to make.

Ben confessed in a 2010 interview with Entertainment Weekly that his early effort made him cringe.

"It's horrible. It's atrocious," he said. "I knew I wanted to be a director, and I did a couple of short films, and this is the only one that haunts me. I'm not proud of it. It looks like it was made by someone who has no prospects, no promise."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Gemini:

Don't bring your work home with you. Although you're wonderfully efficient in your job, you require different skills when dealing with friends and family. Be generous with your praise, resources and encouragement. Someone who is struggling needs moral support. Giving a lecture about personal responsibility will not help. Instead, lend a sympathetic ear. Ask questions. Picture things from the other person's point of view. A receptive attitude will strengthen your relationship.More
