His wife Jennifer Schwalbach Smith, who has a small role here as Susan, gave birth to their daughter in 1999.
No doubt, the scene where Ollie takes his daughter Gertie to the video store was likely something he was very familiar with, as that is where his career began.
It was just revealed that Brad and Angelina are on speaking terms again after a rocky few months.
Kevin Smith wrote and directed Jersey Girl inspired by the fact that he had recently become a father himself.
TYLER: Yes, but don't expect the movie to suddenly become all about Arwen. And it was really hard, because I wasn't allowed to talk about that for so long, and everybody was asking me. And maybe they kind of thought, "Oh, well if she's a fighter she's strong." And over time they realized that you don't have to put a sword in a woman's hand to make her seem a tough. How was it for you being, well, you and Miranda Otto, the only female presence on the set? I had definitely tried to speak in a low voice throughout the whole thing, just because Kate's voice is naturally quite like that; it's really commanding, and powerful. Q: With Viggo Mortensen, you have great chemistry onscreen. You could easily put a lot of different labels on him but he keeps getting more and more interesting, there's so much there to offer. He just shows up and he was going to be this character and he just went for it.
That's little actual makeup of who Arwen is, and her sheer will and strength and love for this man was strong enough. TYLER: Well, there were a lot of women in the crew, for sure. And I think we realized when we were doing all of the ADR and stuff because, I am a lot younger than she is Array; or, I'm not younger than she is Array; that suddenly when I brought my voice down to that register, it gave Arwen a kind of timelessness. In a way, it kind of just adds some depth to Arwen. When I read a line kind of with that voice, it was like, wow! I was sitting in a diner with Ben Affleck, talking. He really has that intensity and that depth in his eyes.
Sources are saying that his love life isn’t currently his priority!
We all know about the weird, now-legendary pairings of, say, Angelina Jolie and Billy Bob Thornton or Ryan Reynolds and Alanis Morissette, but there are heaps of other couples that time has forgotten about...but, thanks to the internet and our own personal torch-carrying, we haven't.
Now, I may not be a lothario along the lines of ol' Ben here, but I'm having a hard time imagining any real-life scenario where a woman would respond positively to having an animal cracker stuck in her underwear.
This year marks the 15th anniversary of Shakespeare in Love's triumph at the Oscars, including then-26-year-old Gwyneth Paltrow's win for Best Actress.
I think people want me to say that it's going to be more, and that's hard for me sometimes because I don't really know what to say to that. And we went back into the book and in to the appendix. I think originally that [screenwriters] Fran [Walsh] and Philippa [Boyens], when they were really looking at this character, they wanted her to be a strong character. They have this, you know, they had their thing going on. It was kind of good for me to go through that; not be able to be a part of everything because Arwen isn't either. TYLER: Viggo really brought an intensity to this character that was really important for this part to really show the layers and levels of this person. Q: Did that help you as an actress, to have a partner in a scene like that?
Q: Well, she becomes more interesting in the third one, I guess, because trysts are finally made. Q: Was it an interesting character for you to play throughout the process? I don't want to say it was a more difficult for me than it was for everybody else, but I went down to New Zealand originally to play a totally different character. The original character of Arwen that was written and scripted was completely different. TYLER: She was much more present in the journey with the fellowship. I was in New Zealand for a long time and preparing for fight sequences. And the more I did that stuff the further we were getting away from they cast me and what was true of Arwen. She is a strong character, but they were trying to figure out how to incorporate her into the film to be a strong character. Q: For Arwen's voice, which is rather captivating, was it your choice to bring your voice down to a lower register? TYLER: That's something that happened kind of naturally, actually, when we were doing the ADR. He's been raised by the Elves, and he had to be this Ranger.
Because Ben Affleck is a movie star and looks like one, you might expect him to start dating eventually, but no.
