Los Angeles, Jan 2 (IANS) Actor Ben Affleck says there was a phase in his life when he felt nobody liked him.

The 40-year-old, who has worked in movies like "Good Will Hunting", "Gone Baby Gone" and "Argo" feels he was targeted by some people for no fault of his.

"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 recognise a moment that they can get a free shot in, and for some people it's just too much to resist," GQ magazine quoted Affleck as saying.

"And that was definitely me at that point. I was the guy. I was the designated person to loathe. I made a bunch of movies that didn't work. I was ending up in the tabloids. I don't know what the lesson is, except that you just have to find your compass," he added.
