Ben Affleck: THR's 'The Directors' Issue Feature!

Ben Affleck gets up close in this new feature from THR‘s latest issue, highlighting talented directors.

Here’s what the 40-year-old Argo star and helmer had to share with the magazine:

On casting his brother Casey Affleck in Gone Baby Gone: “It was tough. But I cast him because he’s such a great actor, and part of why he is a great actor is ’cause he will walk into a room where he knows the camera isn’t, whether it’s to f– with you or because he really thinks it’s real.”

On how being an actor informs being a director: “Actually, being an actor was a real advantage for me in having that discipline. I’ve been through so many experiences where I’d go and watch some cut that was very long, and I would go to the director and say, “Man, I’m in the movie, and I’m bored. So surely the audience is gonna be.”

Also featured in the director’s issue are Gus Van Sant, Tom Hooper, Ang Lee, David O. Russell, and Quentin Tarantino.

Also pictured inside: Ben‘s wife Jennifer Garner hanging out with her son Samuel on Wednesday (November 28) in New Orleans, La. The next day, Jen was spotted on the set of her flick The Dallas Buyers Club. Meanwhile, on Wednesday (November 28), Ben and his daughter Seraphina visited the Brentwood Country Mart together in Santa Monica, Calif. The two loved it so much, they returned the next day before Ben hit up a business meeting in Santa Monica.
