Ben Affleck reports that he will play Batman in a new Bat-movie on one condition.
Are you ready for this?
If ex-girlfriend Gwyneth Paltrow will be Catwoman.
Celebrity gossipy reports have stated that Ben is heartsick over his breakup with Gwyneth like, a year ago, while Gwyneth has allegedly gotten on with her dating life. Of course he would want her to be in his movie, so they could, like, make out and stuff.
A newspaper report said Ben "really" wants Gwyneth to be Catwoman. "She was very excited about the role, but is so popular in Hollywood right now that she has her pick of any role. She can't decide if the part will be good for her career."
Ben's buddy Matt Damon was touching on Gwyneth on the cover of Entertainment Weekly. I'd go down to the malt shop and sock him, if I were him.
