The world was waiting on bated breath to find out if George Clooney and Stacy Keibler were actually on the verge of breaking up, but fret no more, this happy couple emerged from their love nest to attend the LA premiere of Argo.
George produced the flick, but dodged red carpet interviews, instead he escorted his girlfriend into the theater and onlookers tell us that they looked very much like a couple. No trouble in paradise, err Lake Cuomo, here.
Of course, George and Stacy had to stop to say hello to Ben Affleck, the film’s star, producer, and director.
Ben Affleck continues on his triple-threat takeover in Hollywood, fresh off his writing/starring/directing turn in The Town – Ben brings us Argo a film about a team of CIA specialists who film a fake movie in Iran to bring home a group of kidnapped Americans.
Other than it’s awesome premise, what else drew Ben to this script?
“It interested me because it’s a thriller, it’s a nail biting thriller. It’s also a comedy. These guys had me and the audience laughing out loud. And it’s a CIA story that’s complicated and true and put that all together it made something really unique and special,” Ben tells Hollyscoop.
“I think it’s the best movie I’ve been involved with,” he says.
Or as John Goodman (one of the movie’s stars) tells us, “[working with Ben] is the best. He’s extremely prepared and he’s a funny guy.”
Ben has made a reputation for himself as a very straightforward kind of director. No bull sh-t on Ben’s sets, or so we hear.
“I like to tell people the truth and as an actor I don’t like to be persuaded around with and its a waste of time. If you have something to tell me or if you want me to change it, I’m happy to change it,” he tells us, “So I feel respectful to come over and tell people the truth. I find that the actors are like ‘Thank god finally somebody’s not bull-sh*tting.’”
Argo opens nationwide on Oct. 12, 2012.
