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."

Letting it lay dormant is like refusing to harvest a thriving crop. Stop wasting the valuable gifts you've been given.More
