Especially with a beard?

I remember when Armageddon came out and we all fancied him, we even had a poster of him up on the wall at university ('cos that's not sad or anything...)

And over a decade later... Yep, still would.

Anyone else? Or an old crushes still stirring the heart strings a decade or more later?

Yabu I would too. I always think he seems intelligent... And like a good husband and dad which in my book is sexy. And he's film just won an Oscar. You have good taste.

BUT Armageddon was a crap film <gavel>

Yanbu that shoud have said!! Flipping ipad

YAB soooo U

I cannot stand him. He gives me the creeps.

Then he gave the interview when he got engaged to JLo and started telling everyone how many people she had slept with and said she was 'practically a virgin in their industry' and that just confirmed my hatred of him even more. Yuck.

I've adored him since Good Will Hunting and Dogma.

Getting better with age. wink

Oh, god, I know, I caught some of it recently and it was bloody terrible, AND Affleck looked all shiny and buffed and awful in it. The secretly-intellectual-bit-of-rough look he is channelling at the moment is much better. Plus he still makes me cry like a baby in that scene in Good Will Hunting when he tells Matt Damon's character he hopes he leaves <sobs hopelessly at the memory>

Dogma! I'd forgotten that film. I quite liked that. I also loved The Town, because I like films with big bangs and guns and boy stuff, but that also had the equally delious Jeremy Renner to ogle at as well.

I prefer his brother! grin

I fancy him too have done for years!
Don,t like his beard much tho!
Argo was a really capivateing film!
I had a builder in once who looked like Ben, I couldn,t control my hormones!!!

I fancy him. Watched "Argo" last night. He's got it, and the beard is lovely.

Not after Pearl Harbour, was totally Josh Hartnett all the way!

LadyHarrietdeSpook Mon 25-Feb-13 23:53:42

I forgot about the JLo malarkey. That ruins him for me. (But love the beard!)

AnyFucker Mon 25-Feb-13 23:54:42

he went a bit crazy with the JLo thing

I look on it as a moment of madness

he's over it now smile

eurghh

another one who thinks he's permanently tainted by the JLo thing. What was that? so strange- where is she now? Is she in obscurity already?- haven't heard of anything from her in years, it really was 15 mins for her it seems.

i have an unpleasant picture in my head of them lounging on some yacht with his hand grabbing her arse- all done for the waiting paparazzi...

J-Lo is still going. I think she's a judge on some American X factor sort of show. And, I just saw her in a movie preview.

CheerfulYank Tue 26-Feb-13 05:43:31

She was a judge on American Idol. She has twins and a twenty some year old boyfriend.

I sort of like him by default.

He reminds me of Dave Grohl a bit.

I've always loved him blush Even my husband said when watching the Oscars "he can really wear a beard" and for once he wasn't talking about George Clooney grin

Don't fancy him at all but Argo was an excellent film.

Maebe Tue 26-Feb-13 08:33:34

Argo was fantastic, I watched it last night, great film even if I was gnawing my nails off by the end! And you're right, the man really can wear a beard. Makes me imagine him as some kind of lumberjack blush

Casey Affleck though... He's a good actor but I'm not sure I'll ever fully recover from The Killer Inside Me. They do make me wonder what Affleck senior looks like!

I saw Argo the other month and couldn't take my eyes off him. He looked really good.
I don't know much else about him, least of all the J-Lo stuff. I'll go and google.

Casey was involved in that weird Joachin Phoenix hoax, and maybe it damaged his career.
