Quote of the Day: Ben Affleck Wowed by Blake Lively’s Acting
“The whole movie kind of hinges in a lot of ways on her performance, and I knew it was going to be the hardest part to cast… This girl came in, and no one had said to me beforehand, ‘Hey, look for this person.’ And obviously she was really attractive, and so I thought, Oh, here comes some blond girl. She came in, did one reading, and just crushed it. Like, Boston accent — really good. I was sort of stunned. I said, ‘Jeez, you know, that was really f——-g good. Who are you?’ She didn’t mention that she was on a television show… I want to be on the record because I think she’s really going to blow up, and I want to look like the smart guy. I didn’t quite discover her, but at least I want to say I bought the stock when it wasn’t $500 a share.”
-Director Ben Affleck on hiring actress Gossip Girl‘s Blake Lively - an actress he wasn’t familiar with - for his upcoming movie The Town.
