Analyzing his career, Affleck reflects, “I feel like whenever I do a movie, people think, ‘Well, that’s good, but that’s probably the best he’ll do.’ I sort of bang and bang and kick in a door, and people say, ‘Now a million doors will open for you.’ And they don’t. I’m 41, and it’s been many years of banging and kicking.”

On the heels of great reviews for Manchester by the Sea, things are looking up for Affleck. The American actor shares his reaction to a recent standing ovation at a screening, “I never experienced anything like that. I’m more familiar with other kinds of reactions–lukewarm to politely disgusted. When you walk in and see a movie and people applaud…I was like, ‘Wow.’ I’m still holding on to that feeling.” Read more on Variety.com.
