Quote of the Day: Ben Affleck Wowed by Blake Lively’s Acting

Blake Lively and Ben Affleck

“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 - an actress he wasn’t familiar with - for his upcoming movie The Town.

Violet Affleck Reads Jane Austen, Among Other Talents

Violet Affleck reads classic literatureJennifer Garner’s three-year-old daughter Violet Affleck reads Jane Austen novels. Her and Ben Affleck must be doing something right if she’s going at that rate.

The Invention of Lying actress is keen for her children—Violet and eight-month-old Seraphina, her kids with husband Ben Affleck—to have a broad range of interests and is already encouraging Violet to read classic literature.

Lynda Obst, who produced new movie The Invention of Lying, revealed, “Most of the time that I did spend with her when it was off-set, Violet was cooking with her, or reading Jane Austen, or doing one of these remarkable things that Violet tends to do. She encourages her kids to be independent. And at the same time not television watchers. Readers. Thinkers. She is kind of old-fashioned. She is a very classic mom.”

Jennifer, 37, admits that she struggles to juggle her career with being a mother, but tries her best: “Every day, you feel like you are off-balance one way or another. You just take it one day at a time. I don’t think anyone has it properly figured out.”

Box Office Breakdown: Another Win for Final Destination

The Final Destination

Ticket buyers ended their summer vacations by booking . For the 2nd time in a row, the horror entry topped all entries with a 1st place finish. Thanks to the $15.3 million added to the pot, Warner Bros. saw its sequel rise above the $50 million mark during the Labor Day weekend

pulled in another $15 million and narrowly missed another win of its own. The WWII movie has now raked in over $95 million domestically and given Quentin Tarantino the 2nd best gross of his career. (Pulp Fiction is still the champ.)

Meanwhile, Sandra Bullock and Bradley Cooper joined forces for a 3rd place debut. may not have done Proposal or Hangover-esque numbers, but the comedy did walk away with something to brag about. The Fox feature totaled the largest per screen average of any movie in the Top 10.
