Ben Affleck: Enjoys ensemble movies
Oscar winning star Ben Affleck has suggested that, he enjoys working with ensemble casts in his films.
Affleck, who won a 'Best Writing' Oscar for Good Will Hunting, told Back Stage that he feels most free to explore his character's motivations when he is surrounded by a talented group of actors.
"I've found that I've had the best time playing in ensembles or character parts where I could do something different," he said.
The star further explained that he learned to improve his skills as an actor while taking on supporting roles in some of his earlier movies.
The actor added: "There was a part of me that had a built-up frustration from never getting the leads. Always being the bully character, or feeling marginalised in some way.
"So the starving man gets to the table and he wants to eat. Eventually I figured out that's not the thing. It's the part you're playing and its integrity and quality, not its size. It's a cliche, but it really is true. That's led me to where I am today."
Gwyneth Paltrow revealed last week that dating both Affleck and Brad Pitt was "strange".
