Ben Affleck: “I’m not the guy who needs sex for one night”
When I was about fifteen, I seriously thought about suicide. It seemed to me that Casey and I would never achieve anything. All we saw was an alcoholic father and a mother trying to somehow get us out of this Boston ghetto. If it was not for Matt, who always kept saying that everything would be fine, everything would turn out and the main thing was not to give up – I would not be here now.
A friend of my son asked him what his favorite superhero was. The son replied: “Flash.” A friend asks: “But what about Batman?”. The son replied: “Yes Batman is just my dad.”
I just want to be myself and not think about what others will think of me.
As long as I can remember, I always wanted to be just an actor.
I’m not the guy who needs sex for one night.
The most difficult part in my life is the role of the nominee for Oscar. It’s shameful to lose, but it’s scary to win. At the same time, one must seem unperturbed, although inside everything trembles like an aspen leaf.
The lesson I learned for myself is not to look at films that are based on the size of the budget, how much money will be spent on effects and where the shooting will take place. The plot – that’s what’s important
I have never acted in love scenes with women who would be passionate about life. I do not feel any feelings for my partners (except, perhaps, friendship, as with Liv Tyler), and therefore shooting in bed scenes for me is a completely asexual activity.
There is nothing worse than being a thirteen-year-old. You’re shy of your parents, trying to be independent and all that, and deep down you realize that you can not make a step without your mother.
