Ben Affleck has claimed he received worse press than one of America’s most notorious killers when he dated Jennifer Lopez. The multimillionaire movie star complained he was treated more harshly than Scott Peterson, who was convicted seven years ago of brutally murdering his wife and unborn son in 2002.

Actor and director Ben, who dated J-Lo from 2002 to 2004, made the shocking comparison in an interview for December’s edition of GQ Magazine.

Displaying a complete lack of self-awareness, he said: ‘At the time, I knew on some level, “This is insane.”

‘What was that guy’s name who killed his wife and dumped her off the side of a boat?

‘Peterson. I remember thinking he actually gets slightly better treatment than I do in the press. At least they had to say “alleged killer.”‘

The 40-year-old actor and director, whose latest film Argo is being tipped for Oscar nominations, continued to wallow in self pity as he talked about how he felt like he was being attacked.

He said: ‘Unfortunately there’s an aspect of that that’s like one of those fights you see on YouTube where one of them falls down and then a bunch of people who were standing around come over and kick the person.

‘They don’t know them, they have no involvement in the fight, but they recognize a moment that they can get a free shot in, and for some people it’s just too much to resist.
