Ben Affleck named Entertainer of the Year

Nov 28 2012, 11:06am CST | by

Actor-and-director Ben Affleck receives top honour as Entertainment Weekly's Entertainer of the Year after critical success with latest film 'Argo'.

Ben Affleck has been named Entertainer of the Year by Entertainment Weekly.
The actor-and-director succeeds 'Harry Potter' star Daniel Radcliffe, who received the honour last year, and was bestowed with the accolade as he has finally reached the ''pinnacle'' of his career.
Appearing on US morning show 'Good Morning America', Entertainment Weekly editor Jess Cagle explained: ''We've watched him grow up. He has really reached his pinnacle.''
The 40-year-old 'Daredevil' star - who burst onto the acting scene 15 years ago in 'Good Will Hunting' - is delighted with the honour, particularly because he wants to make his family, wife Jennifer Garner, daughters Violet, six, and Seraphina, three, and nine-month-old Samuel, proud.
Ben told Entertainment Weekly: ''Being at a place in my life and my career where I know what I'm trying to do, it's different than being 26. When you're younger and have the early success that I had - it sounds like the worst Hallmark cliche - but I didn't have anyone to share it with.
''I don't mean I wanted someone to sit by the fire with. But when you have a family and children, you kind of see yourself reflected in them. I want to make the kinds of movies that my kids are proud of. I have higher standards, in a way, for them.''
Fellow Hollywood star George Clooney, 51, praised Ben for re-emerging on the Hollywood A-list after several rocky years, which included starring in numerous widely panned films and a high profile engagement to singer-and-actress Jennifer Lopez, 43, that was eventually called off.
George said: ''Hollywood loves a comeback, and he's an unbelievable comeback kid.''
Ben has transitioned from in front of the screen to behind it, helming critically-acclaimed films such as 'Gone Baby Gone', 'The Town' and this year's 'Argo', which is being tipped for Oscar contention.

Star: Prince Harry is ‘romantic & considerate’ on dates, he’s a great kisser

Aug 1 2014 9:00am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

We’ve been covering some of Star Mag’s cover story in separate posts because some of the stories about “regular people dating celebrities” are just too good to compile in one post. So this is post is mainly about Prince Harry and what he’s like to date, but I’m also including some highlights from other stories. First, the Harry story: One lucky woman who went on a date with Prince Harry recalls him being the most ...

Guess The Celebrity: A$$-Crack Edition! Who Doesn't Quite Have Their Pants Pulled Up All The Way?!

Jul 30 2014 6:17pm CDT | Source: PerezHilton

Uh Oh!!! It looks like someone forgot that crack is illegal, because whoever this is sure is sporting a large supply of it at the gas station. This Hollywood big shot was filling up his tank when he squatted down just a tad too far and let his jeans expose more than he probably wanted. So, the question is, who do you think it is? Surprise! It's Ben Affleck!!! [Image via SPOT/AKM-GSI/WENN ...

Jesse Eisenberg’s hair is magnificent, but why isn’t he bald for Lex Luthor?

Jul 30 2014 6:00am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

My God, Jesse Eisenberg’s hair is glorious. I don’t think I’ve ever paid that much attention to his locks, but OMG. I would kill to have those curls!! He has Helena Bonham Carter hair. These are some new photos of Jesse outside of the BBC Radio 1 studio yesterday in London. Ordinarily I would care (I like him but he’s really not on my radar for the most part), but I’d just like to point out a few weird things. One, he still has his hair. ...
