Affleck's Security Embarrassment

BEN AFFLECK suffered the ultimate embarrassment at Sunday night's (02MAY04) White House Correspondence Dinner - security guards wouldn't let him into the gala without a ticket.

A flustered and furious Affleck was refused entrance to the seated area of the event by over-zealous security guards, who insisted on seeing his ticket.

Democrat Affleck joked that the fuss was made due to his public opposition to PRESIDENT GEORGE W BUSH, who co-hosted the annual event with comic JAY LENO.

The embarrassing moment was made even worse when Affleck's ticket mix up was caught by ENTERTAINMENT TONIGHT cameras.

Once inside, Affleck joined MEG RYAN and DREW BARRYMORE among the big names who dined with the President.

The Hollywood stars joined tennis ace SERENA WILLIAMS, reality TV stars and American dignitaries at the annual gala.

Guests were treated to a speech from Bush and watched a film of THE WHO performing WON'T GET FOOLED AGAIN with the President's head morphed onto JOHN ENTWISTLE's shoulders.

The skit was part of a joke by the night's co-host, Leno.
