Ben Won't Say The C Word

Ben Won't Say The C Word

And by that we mean "comeback." Ben is in Venice to promote Hollywoodland which has received excellent buzz. Reports are saying this is his comeback role but he says, "I never use the 'c'-word -- it's impolite." This movie is a perfect role for him because it allows him to talk about the downside of fame and no one knows this better than the man who began the now popular combo names like Bennifer. Here's more from Ben:

"Nowadays ... people pay attention more and more to actors' private lives or personal lives or even the most mundane aspects of their every day lives in a kind of parallel track alongside their movies," said popular tabloid target Affleck.

"Even the movies sometimes become incidental pit stops or commercial breaks in the soap opera of their life. I think that is bad for the actors, definitely, because it makes it difficult to suspend disbelief when you go and see their movie."

He called fame "just the dance you have to dance."

I think it's great that he has settled down and started a family. I am pulling for him and domesticity! His acting may not be that great but he did write Good Will Hunting with Matt Damon so he is quite talented! Good luck, Ben!

He's come along way since Jenn Lopez. He seems to have figured himself out, become settled and gotten himself out of trouble. He seemed to have some personal demons going on when he was with her ... Gambling, drinking, etc ... He's much more rounded with Jenn Garner and now, baby Violet. Good for him ... and Her. I hope she has another baby soon : > Hey, how come we haven't seen/heard about Ryan and Reese lately ????????

I won't be seeing this movie any time soon because I've giving Ben like five chances to impress me in a film and in the end I always ending up hating him and myself for watching his films.

atoxy already made him mine....sorry ladies! step aside!!

I disagree, Jax - he's been in Dazed & Confused, Armageddon, Chasing Amy, Shakespeare in Love, Dogma and Good Will Hunting. Those are all good. He has been in a lot of crap, too, though.

Really he's only had one good movie so I wouldn't consider this a comeback more like his first coming

I love that he uses words like impolite and mundane. And I'm so impressed now that we've found out he speaks French, Spanish and Arabic.
