While news swirled last week about a reportedly out-of-control Ben Affleck heading to rehab, unflattering images were posted all over the internet of the troubled actor stopping in for one last hit of his favourite takeaway before heading to a rehabilitation facility. As if being driven to rehab by your ex-wife wasn’t rock bottom enough, the world got to see a seemingly bloated and sweating Affleck looking lasciviously out the window as he ordered one last meal from Jack in the Box.
Despite the alleged public embarrassment surrounding the image, at least one local McDonald’s worker has claimed that pretty much everyone looks like Affleck did when they head to the golden arches for their fast food hit. The worker, who requested strict anonymity, said she works at the Greensborough McDonald’s store and is regularly posted to the drive thru section of that family restaurant.
In a wide-ranging interview with The Watsonia Bugle, the McDonald’s worker said, “You’d be surprised how many people look pretty much exactly the same as Ben did in that photo. When I first saw the story I recognised that facial expression. I call it the ‘Get In My Belly’ look. It’s most noticeable in the really hungover customers, but it’s also fairly common across the board. As is the swollen appearance.”
