Benjamin Geza Affleck-Boldt was born inAugust 1972 in Berkeley, California, as an actor father and a New York mother, who when he turns ten will take him to live with him, away from his father who suffers from alcoholism problems. Before that, at the age of two he moved with his parents to Massachussets, in Falmouth, where with his younger brother Casey he began acting and auditioning from an early age. At the age of eight, this trend is amplified, when little Ben becomes friends with a child of the same age who has moved to that area, Matt Damon.

His first experiences are with an educational TV series for children, The Voyage of the Mimi (1984); then there are small television and advertising roles. In the nineties the passion for acting is now stable and, thanks to an unconvinced attendance of the university, explodes in New York with roles of increasing importance, including those in Honor school (1992) and Life is a Dream (1993) by Richard Linklater. The first part as a protagonist is in Last appeal (1995), which will be followed by a romantic comedy by Kevin Smith, Looking for Amy (1997): the director will call him back shortly for the satirical Dogma (1999). His acting qualities are noted and praised, but his career doesn’t really take off until he and his old friend Matt write a certain script.

IS’ Will Hunting – Rebel genius (1997) which yields him and Damon a Golden Globe and an Oscar for the best original screenplay. From that moment on, it is the stardom, but in a rather paradoxical condition, because from the next Armageddon (1998) i Raids they target him as an actor-dog, naming him with Liv Tyler for the “worst pair on screen”. These are the same years in which he weaves a relationship with Gwyneth Paltrow (1997-2000), with whom he will act in Shakespeare in Love (1998) and Bounce (2000).

The promising start to his career seems completely compromised in the 2000s. Pearl Harbor (2001) brings him two Razzie nominations, as Worst Actor and Worst Screen Couple, equally split by choice with Kate Beckinsale is Josh Hartnett. From 2002 to 2004 he became the official boyfriend of Jennifer Lopez: the tabloids do not let them go for a moment and his glamorous figure, combined with wrong films, makes him fall very low. He can’t even reboot the character of Jack Ryan with At the top of the tension (2002). Even in 2004 he received a triple nomination for the Razzie as worst actor, for Dare devil, Paycheck is Extreme love. In the latter he acts with his own J.Lo, as well as in the following Jersey Girl of Kevin Smith, who fails to replicate past miracles, and leads Affleck to yet another Razzie nomination in 2005. To support him emotionally his first lasting relationship: the one with Jennifer “Elektra” Garner, that married in 2005 and that he will leave only in 2015, after three children.

The negative streak ends, to the surprise of the detractors, with Hollywoodland (2006), in which he is the suicidal actor George Reeves, which he interpreted Superman on TV in the late 1950s. This part gives him one Golden Globe nominations it’s a Volpi Cup in Venice: not bad for a “laughingstock”.

Excited, Ben decides to change the air a bit and sit behind the camera, staging a novel by Dennis Lehane, Gone Baby Gone (2007), played by his brother Casey. The feature film receives critical and public acclaim, hinting that Ben Affleck is not only a handsome star, but one who can legitimately aspire to something more. Then he begins to choose actor roles more carefully: State of Play (2009) alongside Russell Crowe and the choir The Company Men (2010).

THE Razzie Awards they try again, naming it in 2010 how “worst actor of the decade“, but Affleck shrugs and directs himself in the beautiful thriller-noir The Town (2010). In 2012 he surpasses himself, interpreting and directing what remains for now the apex of his career: Argon (2012), which yields him a Golden Globe as best director and a Oscar to the best film.

After participating in the tense Gone Girl (2014) of David Fincher, accepts the role of Batman in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016) of Zack Snyder, arousing a crawl space of controversy from Batman fans, still worried about Razzies, Oscars or not Oscars. In 2015 he shot another adaptation of Dennis Lehane, Live By Night, waiting to reappear as Batman, in small appearances, in Suicide Squad, Justice League Part One and perhaps in a solo that could also see him as a director. In 2015 i Raids they awarded him with a “redeemer award“, the prize given to artists who were able to be forgiven.
