Evan Rachel Wood is upset with Ben Affleck -- for something the actor said 20 years ago.

The Twitter beef started when Kevin Smith, a filmmaker who worked with Affleck in his early days, stopped by the Los Angeles LGBT Film Festival on Saturday to celebrate the 20th anniversary of "Chasing Amy," a romantic comedy in which then-24-year-old Affleck kissed co-star Jason Lee.

According to Smith, Affleck had this revelation: "A man kissing another man is the greatest acting challenge an actor can ever face. Now, Iā€™m a serious actor."

The comment did not sit well with the "Westworld" star.

"Try getting raped in a scene. Also, grow up Ben," Wood wrote in a since-deleted tweet.

"Also, you think us ladies like kissing all the guys we kiss? Just cause its a 'straight kiss' doesnt [sic] mean we enjoy it. Ahem," she also tweeted.

A Twitter user replied to Wood, pointing out that "the quote was from 20 years ago so I guess he did grow up."

"I'm sure he just thought it was a funny, but even jokes like that are damaging," Wood replied.

Early Wednesday morning, Wood deleted her tweets, explaining she didn't "wan't to give that kind of hatred a place."

Affleck's rep has not yet returned TooFab's request for comment.
