Ben Affleck looks devilishly handsome while posing for a quick picture in the Today show Orange Room on Monday (September 29) in New York City.

“It’s not hostile to the institution of marriage. It just asks searingly honest questions,” the 42-year-old actor told Matt Lauer about whether or not Gone Girl could effect people’s relationships.

Ben also responded to backlash he received about playing Batman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

“You have all of this attention — some of it’s positive, some of it’s negative. I think, in the end, you make the movie and it either works or it doesn’t,” Ben said.

'Gone Girl' Movie Ending Remains Unchanged, Critics Confirm

While initial reports said the ending for the moving Gone Girl would be different than the book, the first reviews from critics confirm that the ending has gone unchanged.

Ben [Affleck] was so shocked by it,” author Gillian Flynn previously told EW of the screenplay she wrote. “He would say, ‘This is a whole new third act! She literally threw that third act out and started from scratch.’”

Well, looks like Gillian was either trying to throw us for a loop or a different screenplay was used!

“Despite published reports that major plot changes were being made, particularly in the third act, this simply isn’t true; it’s an extremely faithful adaptation of what is ultimately a withering critique of the dynamics of marriage,” THR film critic Todd McCarthy wrote in his review.

Critics for Variety and The New York Times also said the movie is extremely faithful to the book. We sure can’t wait to see it!

Ben Affleck Admits to Counting Cards in Las Vegas Casinos

Ben Affleck confirms the reports that he was caught counting cards in Las Vegas earlier this year!

“That is a true story. I mean, that took place. I took some time to learn the game and became a decent blackjack player. And once I became decent, the casinos asked me not to play blackjack,” the 42-year-old actor shared during an interview in Details magazine’s October 2014 issue.

He added, “I mean, the fact that being good at the game is against the rules at the casinos should tell you something about casinos.”

“I had always liked blackjack. I don’t play any other games of chance. I don’t bet on football games, and I don’t gamble at all, really, outside of that,” Ben said. “But I knew with blackjack that there’s a way you can improve your odds. And so I started trying to learn. And then I just got to a point in my life where I’m like, ‘If I’m going to do something, I’m going to try and do it really well.’”

Ben Affleck on Fake Rumors Concerning Him & Jennifer Garner: 'That's All Bulls-t'

Ben Affleck shows off his huge muscles in this brand new feature from his Details magazine October 2014 cover story.

Here’s what the 42-year-old Gone Girl star had to share:

On what drew him to Gone Girl: “I don’t read too many airport husband-and-wife-killer thrillers, but my guess is that what set this apart is that Gillian is very skillful, obviously. And it points more specifically, more elegantly, and more directly at this theme that we all kind of identify with, on some level, about marriage, about relationships, about what we show one another. And that was adeptly wrapped in the shell of a thriller. But underneath it was something thematically more resonant than your common thriller.”

On infamously counting cards at a casino: That is a true story. I mean, that took place. I took some time to learn the game and became a decent blackjack player. And once I became decent, the casinos asked me not to play blackjack. I mean, the fact that being good at the game is against the rules at the casinos should tell you something about casinos. There’s a lot of hospitality, backslapping, when they think you’re gonna come in and dump money, and if they think you might leave with some money, it’s like, ‘You know what? Why don’t you try craps or roulette?’”

On a fake story that his wife Jennifer Garner has had it with him: “See, that’s tabloid sh*t. That’s all bullsh*t. They completely lie. I mean, I can show you 10 articles of Star and OK!—those magazines feel totally comfortable absolutely fictionalizing every single element of the story. And there’s nothing you can do about that. My only hope is that people with any common sense recognize that those stories are false. And, I don’t know, there’re worse stories…”
