Ben Affleck is following in the footsteps of his good friend Kevin Smith and donating any future earnings from a Harvey Weinstein or Miramax film to charity.

Affleck was being interviewed by Fox 5 DC to promote “Justice League” when he was asked about Smith’s decision a few weeks back when he revealed he was doing the same thing.

“It’s funny that you mention that,” Affleck began. “Once Kevin suggested that, I decided to do the same thing. So any further residuals that I get from a Miramax or a Weinstein movie will go either to F.I. or to RAINN. One is Film Independent, and the other is a women’s organization.”

He added, “I just didn’t want to cash any more checks from the guy, you know?”
