The Martian actor came to his buddy's defense while speaking with The Hollywood Reporter, explaining how Affleck's relationship with Jennifer Lopez had the public perceiving him in a way that was so far from the truth.
"There's nobody who's more misunderstood," he says of the 43-year-old actor. "Ten years ago, the public image of him could not have been farther apart from who he actually is.
