Later in the evening, the actor suited to attend a party for Jaeger-LeCoultre along with the British actress Rosamund Pike and Jeremy Renner, who's been busy making the rounds to promote The Town.

Ben Affleck was decked out in a tux this evening for the black-tie premiere of The Town. His costars Jeremy Renner and Jon Hamm were decked out in matching Dolce & Gabbana. The handsome trio of guys, along with Rebecca Hall, was more casual this morning for their photo call. Jeremy had a supportive moment as they sat down for the screening, where he grabbed Ben's hand before watching his latest directorial effort. Ben's movie is one of the biggest films showing during the Venice Film Festival, which also brought Hollywood stars like Natalie Portman, Michelle Williams, and Jessica Alba over to Italy. Ben's mingling with fellow cinema people in Europe while his wife Jennifer Garner holds down the fort back home in LA, where she's taking care of Seraphina and Violet's tutu wearing dance class runs.

Ben Affleck was front and center this morning at their photocall for The Town during the Venice Film Festival. He joined Rebecca Hall and Jeremy Renner posing for photos, but their costar Blake Lively stayed behind in NYC to meet up with her pal Anna Wintour at the Fashion's Night Out runway show. Jon Hamm made his way to join his cast and director after being in London last night for the GQ Men of the Year Awards. Ben's been in Italy for a few days already and has been busy promoting his project with various photo ops. He arrived in Europe over the weekend for the cinema event, as did his brother, Casey, who's busy showcasing I'm Still Here. The Affleck brothers also recently had some fun family time together in LA, where they brought their kids together for a cousins' playdate.

Ben Affleck looked clean-cut and handsome as he kicked off promotion for The Town at the Venice Film Festival today. He was joined by his costar in the movie, Rebecca Hall, and Jon Hamm is also in the city ahead of tomorrow's premiere. Ben is ready to debut the project, which he acts in and directed, after spending most of his Summer with his family, exploring NYC as Jennifer filmed Arthur, and hanging out at home in LA. Ben enjoyed the last days of the season with Jen, Violet, Seraphina, and his brother Casey's family before leaving for Italy on Saturday night. While his girls aren't along for this trip, Casey is also in Italy to show off his Joaquin Phoenix documentary, I'm Still Here, which he assures people isn't a hoax.

Ben Affleck arrived solo at LAX on Saturday night en route to the Venice Film Festival, where he met Jon Hamm for the first stop on their promotional tour for The Town. Jon's been hard at work filming Mad Men in California, while the most recent episode is being heralded as one of the best ever. Ben's not the only Affleck in Italy, as Casey is unleashing the highly anticipated Joaquin Phoenix "documentary" I'm Still Here. Ben and Casey spent some sweet time together with their families before heading to Europe and while both movies come out in September, they're so different it won't be much of a box office battle. The brothers both have red carpet screenings during the event this week and perhaps without wives and kids around, they'll be each other's dates.
Michelle Williams pulled up for a photo call by boat on Sunday morning after making a stunning entrance to show off her film, Meek's Cutoff, Saturday night. She's starting a long month of being photo-ready as she's off to Toronto for Blue Valentine next. Stephen Dorff joined director Sofia Coppola and Elle Fanning for the Friday night premiere of Somewhere as did Gossip Girl newcomer Clemence Poesy who will be a very familiar face when the show returns.

Michelle Williams went with a dramatic neutral floor length beaded Jason Wu gown for the premiere of her film, Meek's Cutoff, at the Venice Film Festival last night. She styled her blond pixie cut to complement the dress and her fashionable look is a change from the wardrobe she's been sporting recently filming Take this Waltz in Toronto. She'll be back in the Canadian city next week for a screening of Blue Valentine, but before then perhaps she'll be able to extend her European adventure through her 30th birthday on Thursday.
