”We didn’t kiss that much! Everybody keeps asking me about these love scenes and I’m like, ‘What hot scenes.’ Okay, we did kiss, hug, and eat animal crackers. ‘It was really a nice treat to have Ben play that part because I did know him before this movie. He did treat me like a little sister. He was like, ‘Cover yourself up, girl.’ It was really fun.”

Armageddon received a rating of 6.7/10 on IMDB and 43% on Rotten Tomatoes, but Tyler and Ben Affleck’s friendship remained. The 1998 movie is available to stream on Max in the U.S.
