Ben Affleck on Casey Affleck: ‘We all root for one another’
HollywoodNews.com: Ben Affleck and his burgeoning star brother Casey Affleck aren’t in competition with one another.
Speaking to the Daily Record, Ben Affleck says, “I don’t even know what we would compete over. I’ve seen a bunch of versions of his movies and he’s seen mine and we help each other. I mean, if you are working against your brother, you are really in trouble.
“My brother did give me grey hair directing him in ‘Gone Baby Gone,’ which does make me feel a little bit more old. That makes me want to shave his head.
“I can honestly tell you that with me, Matt (Damon) and Casey, we are all rooting for one another. We are all looking for one another to succeed. It’s hard enough as it is.”
Casey recently made his directorial debut with the mockumentary “I’m Still Here” about Joaquin Phoenix’s hijinks while brother Ben churned out his second directorial feature “The Town” which took the top spot at the box office with close to $24 million.
The Boston-raised brothers starred in four films together: “200 Cigarettes,” “Good Will Hunting,” “Gone Baby Gone” and “Chasing Amy.”
