"I spent five months in London and I have to say the Brexit vote smacked of the same kinds of things I heard here. People whose overarching political agenda is that immigrants are ruining things for us or immigrants are getting one over on us somehow, taking advantage." Said Affleck.

"In London, it's Polish people and here it's Mexican Americans. I still believe in the basic goodness of people, but that doesn't mean we aren't going through a spell where we're in thrall to some ugly ideas and ugly notions." The actor added.

"I met Trump once at a Fashion Week event in Milan. You knew you were at a cheesy party if Donald Trump was there. He would kind of trawl around them. He was famous for only granting permission for films to shoot on his real estate locations if they put him in as a cameo." He stated.

"The ego was there a long time ago." Concluded Ben.
