Blake Lively Calls Out Ben Affleck’s Annoying Behind-the-Camera Habit
We can't wait to watch Ben Affleck and his floppy middle-parted hair in Argo! He's acting, he's directing, he’s conditioning his tresses — it's all coming together!
In case you've forgotten, Ben's famous for making animal crackers walk across Liv Tyler's boobs in Armageddon (never forget) — but his real talents lie behind the camera as a director. As do his bad habits....
Ben directed Gossip Girl'sBlake Lively (Serena) in The Town, and according to Ben, Blake wasn't afraid to voice her complaints to him. "It is a rather unfortunate tendency... I sometimes will slightly lip-move along with the lines of the actors," Ben admits. "During one of Jeremy Renner's close-ups, he was like, 'Can I talk to you for a second? You're mouthing my lines.' It was like, 'Ok, I'll stop doing that.' Then Blake said I did it to her... It's a problem, and I'm working on it."
It's like the poor thing can't help himself — he was made to act! Good thing our Blake is so forgiving, or Ben would have a decapitated headband in his bed right now — Godfather-style.
