Ben Affleck Once Shut Down Production on ‘Gone Girl’ Because He Didn't Want to Wear a Yankees Cap
In honor of the ongoing four game series between the Yankees and Red Sox (in which the Sox have lost two of three and have officially been knocked out of contention for the A.L. East), we present to you a bonkers scenario presented by SB Nation in which ‘Gone Girl’ director David Fincher insisted Ben Affleck's character wear a Yankees hat for a scene and Ben said no—he's too big of a Red Sox fan to do that, even in a movie.
Now that may seem silly to some considering Affleck literally gets paid millions of dollars to play fictional characters, but we can at least respect it. Also, it’s been a few years since we last saw ‘Gone Girl,’ but how necessary would the Yankees cap have actually been for the role? Couldn’t they just give him a generic cap that nobody would think twice about, or maybe split the difference by wearing a cap from a team in Connecticut?
