Earlier this week, following the Ben Affleck and Ana de Armas‘ split, someone was seen outside of Ben’s home tossing a cutout of the actress into the trash. The cutout was something Ben’s kids had used to play a prank on their famous father last summer — and Affleck apparently kept after the fact.
While the man’s face was blocked, many on Twitter thought he could be Casey Affleck, Ben’s brother. In a new interview with Entertainment Tonight, however, he confirmed, “No, that’s not me.”
“A bunch of people sent that picture to me and I was gonna tweet some, like, joke, response or something. And then I couldn’t think of one and a joke didn’t seem appropriate,” he added. “And I don’t have Twitter so that wasn’t going to work. But it definitely wasn’t me.”
Of their split, Casey said the past year has “been really hard on people in relationships … it’s been challenging to relationships.” He also heaped nothing but praise onto Ana.
“I think that Ana is just the sweetest, funniest, smartest, most charming person,” he said. “I think she won’t have any problems meeting somebody else.”
“I saw her performance as Marilyn Monroe in this movie called Blonde, which hasn’t come out, and I would bet a lot that she’s gonna pick up every single award,” he continued.
“She’s gonna have a good year. I’m not too worried about her,” he went on. “I think she’s a catch in every way. And I’ll be there to carry Ben through it, but I don’t think he’ll have any problems. My advice to them would be like, ‘Yes, think long and hard about it, because quarantine is not fun if you’re single.’”
