He may have been the star of last night's BAFTA awards AND his film is one of the front runners to take home the Best Picture Oscar but that hasn't stopped insecure Ben Affleck from sneaking into screenings of 'Argo' to judge audience's reactions!
The actor-turned-director has admitted that he loves watching how audiences respond to the smash hit movie:
''I'm in this very narrow kind of bubble but one of the things I will say has been really satisfying about the film is watching it with audiences, and it's the first time in my life - maybe 'Good Will Hunting' - where I've made a movie that I've felt like the audiences laughed at the right times and sort of were right in the flow of it. And you make movies for audiences," he tells Absolute Radio.
''I mean, you want people to see them and so to sneak in the back and watch them have fun has been enormously rewarding.''
Ben and 'Argo' were the big winners at the star studded BAFTAs in London last night. Affleck scooped the gong for Best Director while the movie picked up the big one- the Best Film prize.
The director admitted the evening was a ''huge highlight'' of his career because he had surprisingly never attended the British ceremony before:
''I don't know if it's the highlight, but this is a huge highlight for me. I've never been to the BAFTAs. I've never been nominated for a BAFTA. I've never been invited to present at the BAFTAs."
"I've been kept out of the BAFTAs, and getting to come here and look around, and be part of this really important time in British cinema is deeply flattering.''
You're welcome back anytime Ben!
