Ben Affleck doesn’t believe in career strategy
Los Angeles: Actor Ben Affleck says he does not believe in tactics to shape how a career should look like.
Affleck was criticsed for his movie “Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice” earlier this year. He will now be back on the silver screen with “The Accountant”, which will open in India on Friday.
The 44-year-old, who is also busy with his directorial project “Live by Night”, says he enjoys variation in his projects.
“I’m not much of a tactician when it comes to what a career should look like. I’m not a big believer in that strategic, 36,000-foot-level planning. It’s more about projects that interest me and move me, and part of that is variation,” Affleck said in a statement.
He added: “You would get bored doing the same thing over and over again, and I’m lucky I’ve had a chance to do these three movies, which are all completely different. It keeps me activated and engaged and hopefully doing my best work.”
Warner Bros’ action-thriller “The Accountant” is directed by Gavin O’Connor. It tells the story of a genius with autism.
On the personal front, Affleck is currently going through a rough patch with his estranged wife Jennifer Garner, with whom he shares daughters Violet, 10, Seraphina, seven, and four-year-old son Samuel.
They announced the end of their 10-year marriage in June 2015, but have remained amicable and are yet to move forward with a legal divorce.
