Ben Affleck: “Argo” Action in Rome

Posted Friday October 19, 2012 11:30 AM GMT

Showing some love to his Italian fans, Ben Affleck showed up at a photocall for his new flick “Argo” in Rome today (October 19).

The “Mallrats” hunk looked dashing in a grey suit/white button-up combo as he posed for photographers outside the Hassler Hotel.

In a recent interview, Ben commented on his early-20s aspiration to write and direct movies- “At least I said I would be doing something that I ended up doing.”

Affleck also noted that the 1979 Iranian hostage crisis would have looked quite different had technology been what it is today. “We were constantly reminded that, gosh, if this was the present day, none of this would have happened. You could just pick up the phone, or look up information on the internet.”
