Ben Affleck — Raised in Cambridge, Massachusetts, Ben Afleck was raised by a social worker and school teacher. He started his acting career at a young age, having aspired to act at a very young age. He has been in a number of successful films, namely his recent film success “Argo”.
Ben Affleck is great friends with fellow actor Matt Damon, whom he met early in his acting career and occasionally acts alongside his brother Casey Affleck. While acting has been his dream since before he could remember, many of his quotes show a humble character who does not let his fame go to his head.
“As an actor, you can steer a scene in another direction by playing it a little differently. And, honestly, I like being an actor, and I want to keep having a career.”
“Rumors about me? Calista Flockhart, Pam Anderson, and Matt Damon. That’s who I’m dating.”
“I kinda see my current position like this: ‘Here’s your five minutes in the toy store, so you gotta do all the good movies you can before Chuck Woolery rings the bell.”
“I’m always described as “cocksure” or “with a swagger”, and that bears no resemblance to who I feel like inside. I feel plagued by insecurity.”
“God help me if I ever do another movie with an explosion in it. If you see me in a movie where stuff is exploding, you’ll know I’ve lost all my money.”
“I grew up in a home environment where I wasn’t getting esteem for anything I did.”
“At a certain point, some things in your life shouldn’t be used to sell movies. Hey, I have two sphincters! See my movie!”
“Sometimes it’s Britney Spears and sometimes it’s Carrie Fisher. I can’t tell if I’ve got a Lolita complex or an Oedipus complex.”
“When I look up at the screen and see myself I always have to laugh. Not because I think I’m doing a horrible job, quite the contrary, I just feel it’s so surreal to feel like one person can entertain so many at one time.”
“I remember back when I was a kid there was a comic strip called Plastic Man. His body was elastic and he could make his extremities as long as he wanted. As a youngster I didn`t fully appreciate. But I`m now thinking Plastic Man was probably pretty popular with the ladies.”
“I just feel like sometimes I’m a force to be dealt with. My talents are sometimes overused and also sometimes underused. It’s not easy being me.”
“If I ever woke up with a dead hooker in my hotel room, Matt would be the first person I’d call.”
