Ben Affleck Sideswipes Honda

Breaking News

Mirror Mirror on the car ... but not for long because Ben Affleck just knocked it off.

Ben may have been daydreaming about his "thank you" speech at the Oscars, because the distracted driver/star/director of "Argo" side-swiped a parked Honda that was minding its own business -- decapitating its side mirror.

But Ben did the right thing, leaving a note that even had a friendly salutation: "Hi, knocked off your mirror. VERY Sorry. Will cover everything. Ben."

He also left his phone number -- which is more valuable than the cost of a mirror.
