The actor here is referring to the former United States president Bill Clinton, who in an interview had said, "I experimented with marijuana a time or two, and I didn't like it. I didn't inhale it, and never tried it again."

The "Batman" star went on to admit that his "Dazed and Confused" co-stars were also regularly getting drunk while working on the set, which made him a "little nervous" at the time. Affleck recalled: "I wasn't a very heavy drinker then. I became an alcoholic much, much later and I'm in recovery now, so that was a whole different time."

And when the cast and crew were not partying, they were visiting the gun ranges, as Affleck reveals in the book. "Texas had extremely lax gun laws and most of us came from states where it was next to impossible to buy guns," he said

However, Affleck noted that while visiting gun ranges felt like freedom at that time, it has now become an "uncomfortable" memory for him.

"Part of the newfound freedom being down there was a bunch of us bought guns and went shooting at ranges on weekends, which seemed fun and innocent at the time, but given the subsequent tragedies with young people and guns, it makes me uncomfortable to remember," he explained.
