Ben Affleck Hates ‘Homeland’

Ben AffleckBen Affleck hates the TV series Homeland.

The Argo actor and director - who is tipped for Oscar glory next year - has revealed he can't bare to watch the hugely popular series starring Emmy-award winner Claire Danes because he was originally supposed to direct it but was forced to turn down the opportunity.

The 40-year-old actor revealed he was asked to direct the pilot of the hit Showtime series but he turned the project down to spend quality time with his young family as his wife Jennifer Garner was shooting a movie and they have an agreement that they won't work at the same time.

"I was sure nothing would happen with the show. Now I hate the [f**king] show. I've never seen it," he said. The father-of-three said he doesn't plan on making the same mistake twice and will jump at the opportunity to direct the right TV show in the future. "I'm going to attach myself to 14 pilots this year," he joked.

Homeland recently enjoyed a series high of 2.07 million viewers last Sunday night.
