1. With such a strong effort, it's safe to say that Affleck has fully bounced back from the depths of "Gigli" (2003) to cement himself as not just an A-list actor, but also a go-to director. As a director, this is only Affleck's third feature film, and it's a process he's still getting used to. "There are so many decisions to be made, and it's more than you can get to each day. There is this underlying anxiety not just about getting the movie done but getting it done really well. It keeps my head spinning -- even when I am giving the kids a bath. I can be giving them a bath or feeding them, and sometimes they say, 'Dad, pay attention!'" Affleck recently told The Hollywood Reporter.
