Blake Lively: Ben Affleck is a Terrific Director!

Blake Lively: Ben Affleck is a Terrific Director!

Blake Lively holds onto a crying baby while shooting scenes for her new movie, The Town, on Friday (November 6) in Boston, Mass.

The 22-year-old Gossip Girl actress has nothing but profound respect for her co-star and director Ben Affleck. During an event last month in New York City, Blake told JustJared.com, “He’s a terrific director. You never know what you’re getting into with any director, but he’s been in this business for so long that he really know what he’s doing and he’s a great director. All of us enjoyed working with him so much.”

    She is defiantly having an affair with Ben, if not why else would she be nice and say Ben is a terrific director.

  • Adriana

  • Zoe and Rachel

    This girl always looks stunning ,no matter what she wears.
    But I feel pity for the babies ,Blake not good at holding babies.
    I am happy for her enjoy her film

  • remember da truth

    Ben Affleck has had nothing but critical and peer praise for his directing. I think he’s a much better director than an actor.

    Why pay attention to that first poster? She can’t even spell the word “definitely”.

    Liv, she looks pretty comfortable with those kids, to me. If you expect a perfect pose, you’ve never held a child yourself.

  • huuum

    just young girl not much adult man, she seems don’t know what is right and wrong. to meet and filtering with married man is wrong. steal married man from his wife and beautiful little daughters also wrong. you will be just like sienna. if you steal married man from his family then you will call homewrecker, and lover, and child called love child. hope you refuse any deep relationship with him, just like clever Natalie Portman. or you must talk about your love life with your mother.

  • Zoe and Rachel

    @huuum:
    shut up ,are you seirous ?Blake didn’t flirt Ben ,never!
    she is in love with her boyfriend .Yes ,she is young ,but she is clever.She never be a homewrecker

  • sara

  • question for Blake

    Is Ben good in bed?

  • suck

    @question for Blake:

    Hey ,get a life for yourself.This question is for Garner ,not for Lively

  • martin

    Ben is most likely into Blake, but she wouldn’t do anything unfine with him. She seems very upright to me, in her interviews.

  • question for Blake

    @suck: Garner ?! LOL

    Don’t be silly, the question is for women that Ben f*cks around and Blake is one of them :)

    No if Ben was having a affair on the set that would be Rebecca Hall…

    That is who he spend most of his time with… OK..Give it up..!!

  • ana

    ben´s character is in love with rebeca hall´s character, not with blake.
    ben and hall shoot the romantic and sex scenes, but I don´t believe the affair, ben is stupid but rebecca and blake are smart people.

  • truth hurts

    At least Blake had something nice to say about Ben’s directing, unlike his wife.

  • coco

    Ben should spend more time with his family than on the set of his movie. No one works 24/7. Jen and kids are always going for walks and to the park and Ben never is with them.

  • Enough already!!

    Ok I don’t know why I’m doing this but when I read these asinine comments from stupid people I just can’t help myself, but here goes:

    I know someone who is on the production crew of The Town set practically every day. There is one sex scene involving Blake and Ben’s character only to establish their volatile history, they are ex-lovers. Ben character spends most of the movie avoiding and trying to get rid of her.

    Rebecca and Ben’s character do not have a sex scene but share a few romantic and kissing scenes, both of their characters are confused and vulnerable.

    Jen was only on the set when the shoot was in harvard square or filming in the studio in Cambridge because they lived in Cambridge it was convenient to visit with the kids otherwise she did not go to set except once or twice when filming was in Fenway.

    The movie has maybe two more weeks of shooting to go, they have not finished filming the robbery and hostage scene that opens the film. This is one of two huge scenes in the movie along with the Fenway scene which is the climax. Production is moving forward without any days off so that they can finish filming ahead of schedule. My friend tells me that Ben is nice but all business, he is often stressed especially lately and he wants to be done since he has been in Boston since July and his family is now back in LA.

    Ben has many rules on set, mainly to respect his family’s privacy when they are on set and to be professional.

    There is no stupid affair going on between anybody, Ben is too busy wearing three different hats on set to have time for that, besides whether you believe this or not he is devoted to his family, people here in Boston know that to be true.

  • Adriana

    #30: Thank you!! That’s the kind of stuff some silly people need to hear! :)

  • http://thecollegehookup.com Jessie

    I like Ben, he’s a smart guy. Him and Matt are the perfect couple of best friends.

  • Missy

    I can´t believe people say she has an affair with ben both are professional and just doing their job!

  • erika

    If B&B are having an affair, then shame on both of them; that can cause massive destruction. As an aside, I don’t think Jennifer G. looks as happy as she once did … but that has been going on for a while; maybe she is just tired of the press.

  • lol

    Ben would never cheat on Matt..lmfao Some of you people are so eager to want Blake to be the trainwreck most of Hollywood is you latch onto any story. At least pick someone not *suspect*.

  • Two

    Hopefully, you’re being sarcastic, #1.

  • hannah

    she may look like a slut but it seems as if she’s happy with penn, and ben has jen, Jen’s gorgeous and much hotter than blake in my opinion, ever seen daredevil, alias or elektra?! she was soo hot in those movies! and their 2 daughter are literally the most beautiful children EVER! I want to steal them for me!

  • blue

    thanks #30, i hope ben still love his family deeply. and his two little daughters can meet him on X’mas. in life and on partnership of marriage up and down many marriage partners have sometime difficult time. especially when children are little. but many marriage can continue with both partner’s efforts, perseverance and clever management. hope their family’s good relationship and hope happiness of their little beautiful children.

  • http://dlisted.com lakers fan in boston

    not much 2 say
    i no she’s wearing those clothes for the movie, so i cant complain
    she still looks hot as white trash, thumbs up =]

  • benzola

    Hey @enough already, So Ben just how stupid do you take us to be? huh huh

  • T

    OMG,you guys are idiots .Blake has nothing on Ben ,Ben also ,they are only co-workers .

  • http://www.firemendating.com/ Kelsey Kreme

    Is casey in this movie? I will only see it if casey is in it, he is a great actor and talented human being.

  • Tyler

    It cracks me up that Ben’s PR flacks would think that anyone would believe that Ben and Blake are having an affair, you really are asinine responding to some kids comments on a web site. It obviously matters a lot to you that people believe that Ben is a devoted family man, actions speak louder than some PR flacks words and you really need to get Ben out there more with his family and looking like he enjoys his wife’s company not merely tolerating it until the paparazzi go away.

  • LuckyL

    Lmao

  • lizzie

    Thanks 30 for all the informations!! :)

  • huuum

    thank’s #43. I really want happiness of Ben’s family, and want Jen’s smile and also his beautiful little daughters. loveliest family in hollywood.

  • http://www.tenonanatche.com/stone.htm Stone

    Oh gee, a director who knows what he’s doing. Someone should let her know that she’ll appear a bit smarter if she keeps her mouth shut.

  • lol
