“I got into acting as a young child on account of a sort of arbitrary thing. A friend of my mom’s was a casting director, so really, as kind of a lark, I had a couple of acting jobs that had just enough exposure to give me the option to continue if I wanted to. I followed through with it.” – Ben Affleck
