THAT’S NOT A LOT I WOULDN’T DO FOR TOMMY. I DON’T WANT TO GO TO THE DARKS OF THE INTERNET OR THE BLEEPS.>>Jimmy: WHEN YOU SAY THERE ISN’T A LOT YOU WOULDN’T DO FOR TOMMY, AND YOU CALL HIM TOMMY. WHAT IF HE SAID LIKE I’D LOVE US JUST TO LIVE TOGETHER?>>I’D LIKE, YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN, IF IT WILL HELP YOU, LET’S WARM UP. YOU WANT TO LUBE UP? [ LAUGHTER ]>>Jimmy: WHATEVER.>>WHATEVER IT TAKES, NYOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN?>>Jimmy: IS HE AWARE OF THIS? EVERY TIME HIS NAME COMES UP, I P LAUGH, BECAUSE YOU ALMOST BLUSH AND ARE CHILD LIKE.>>I AM CHILD LIKE. AND I REALLY DO LOVE HIM. I LOOK UP TO HIM SO MUCH THAT IT MAKES ME FEEL LIKE I’M 10 YEARS OLD, AND IT MAKES HIM REALLY UNCOMFORTABLE. HEY, TOM, YOU’RE THE BEST. I GOT IT, DUDE.>>Jimmy: THE LAST TIME YOU WERE HERE, YOU BROUGHT PICTURES OF YOUR SON’S ROOM, AND YOUR SON WHO IS HOW OLD NOW?>>MY SON IS 8.>>Jimmy: YOU’VE BUILT THIS DEMENTED SHRINE TO TOM BRADY IN YOUR SON’S ROOM.>>YEAH, IN THE PATRIOT’S ROOM.>>Jimmy: I WAS WONDERING IF YOUR SON IS, DOES HE LIKE THIS STUFF?

WILL YOU STICK — >>NOT — >>Jimmy: MAYBE I’LL GET TO YOU FISH A LITTLE BIT.>>I’VE DONE THIS A FEW TIMES.>>Jimmy: SO HE SAID HE’S NOT GOING TO TENNESSEE?>>TOM HAS TOLD ME, PERSONALLY, I DON’T KNOW WHAT HE’S SAID TO MARK, BUT HE’S TOLD ME WHERE HE’S GOING. HE CALLED MY AND SAID DON’T TELL WAHLBERG.>>Jimmy: SO HE IS GOING SOMEWHERE.>>THAT I MIGHT BE GOING BACK TO FOXBOROUGH.>>Jimmy: INTERESTING.

HE’S IN THE LOCKER ROOM WITH THE GUYS.>>Jimmy: YOU HAVE TWO OSCARS, THIS IS RIDICULOUS. [CHEERS AND APPLAUSE] SO — >>MY SON — >>Jimmy: GO AHEAD.>>IT WAS AN INTERESTING THING. I’VE BEEN DOING THIS MOVIE IN FRANCE, AS I SAID. BUT LIKE ONE OF THE THINGS THAT IS REALLY IMPORTANT TO ME IS, YOU KNOW, I’M IN A SPLIT, A DIVORCED DAD, I GET CERTAIN, YOU KNOW, HALF THE TIME WITH MY SON, AND I REALLY, YOU KNOW, IT’S HIS BIRTHDAY, HIS EIGHTH BIRTHDAY, I SAY TO THEM, I’LL DO WHATEVER THE SCHEDULE NEEDS, BUT THE 27th I’VE GOT TO BE IN L.A. I HAD TO SCRAMBLE AND DRIVE AND BOOM AND LAND AND I WAS GOING TO LAND RIGHT IN TIME FOR HIS BIRTHDAY, AND WE HAD THIS PRESENT SET UP. AND EVERYTHING WAS GETTING SHIPPED AND SENT AND I WAS GOING TO PICK IT UP AND GO TO HIS SURPRISE PARTY. AND SO I GOT REALLY, YOU KNOW, AND I GOT MY SON, MY SON KNOWS THAT I DO MOVIES THAT ARE KIND OF FAKE AND HIS MOM DOES MOVIES AND THAT’S ALL PRETEND, BUT HE ALSO KNOWS THAT “STAR WARS” IS REAL. THERE’S GUYS OUT THERE FIGHTING THE EMPEROR, AND THAT JOB NEEDS TO GET DONE AND I CAN DO MY FAKE [ BLEEP ] AND SOMEONE CAN DO AN IMPORTANT JOB. AND I SAID I’M ACTUAL LALY IN T MOVIE WITH KYLO REN. AND HE’S LIKE, BUT, DAD, HOW? ARE YOU GOING TO SPACE? WILL HE HAVE HIS LIGHTSABER? YOU AND KYLO REN? YES, THE GOOD KYLO REN, NOT THE BAD KYLO REN. I TOLD ADAM THAT, AND I SAID WOULD YOU TAPE A BIRTHDAY VIDEO TO MY SON. HE DID. IT WAS KIND. I TOOK OFF TO THE AIRPORT, FLY TO LONDON FROM L.A., IT’S A LITTLE DELAYED. I GOT TO STOP BY MY HOUSE AND WE’RE GOING TO GO TO HIS SURPRISE PARTY. I GET TO MY HOUSE AND YOU SEE THE LOOK ON THE FACE OF THE GUY WHO WORKS WITH ME, AND HE WAS LIKE, I SAID, WHERE ARE THE PRESENTS? AND HE WAS, LIKE, THEY DIDN’T GET HERE.>>Jimmy: OH!>>SO I HAD TO SHOW UP TO, YOU KNOW, MY SON’S PARTY — >>Jimmy: WITH NO PRESENTS.>>WITH NO GIFT FOR HIM.>>Jimmy: THAT’S BAD.>>AND IT WAS LIKE THE SURF-SINKING AWFUL FEELING. AND THEN, HE GOES, BUT THERE IS, WELL, ADAM HEARD YOU SAY IT WAS YOUR SON’S BIRTHDAY, AND SO HE CALLED YOUR ASSISTANT, GOT YOUR ADDRESS, AND SENT SOME PRESENTS, AND SIGNED A CARD AND A PICTURE FROM KYLO REN.>>Jimmy: OH.>>AND I TOOK THOSE PRESENTS.

AND I SAID, BUT I DID GET A PRESENT FROM SOMEBODY WHO REALLY WANTED TO MAKE SURE YOU HAD A GIFT. HE WAS LIKE, WHO? AND I WAS LIKE, KYLO REN. I WAS LIKE, AND IT WAS, HE OPENED THE PRESENTS, I PLAYED HIM THE VIDEO OF KYLO REN AND ME, AND IT WAS LIKE, YOU KNOW, DESH. >>Jimmy: WHAT’S BETTER THAN THAT?>>ADAM MADE ME A HERO TO MY KID, AND I WILL NEVER, EVER, EVER FORGET IT.>>Jimmy: HOW DO YOU REPAY THAT? [CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]>>I TELL YOU WHAT. I KNOW THIS KIND OF MAUDLIN SACCHARIN SENTIMENT DOESN’T FIT WITH YOUR SHOW, BUT, IT’S A REALLY GOOD LESSON IN DOING THOSE SMALL GESTURES OF KINDNESS, BECAUSE YOU HAVE NO IDEA. FOR HIM, YEAH, THE KYLO REN DOLL AND THE KYLO REN LEGO AND PICTURE OF KYLO REN, AND IT MEANT THE [ BLEEP ] WORLD TO HIM.>>Jimmy: I BET.>>IT WAS SO NICE.>>Jimmy: YOU KNOW WHAT I HOPE? I HAVE TO SAY, I HOPE THAT YOU GET THAT SAME THING FROM TOM BRADY NEXT TIME YOU SEE HIM. HE IS YOUR KYLO REN. BEN AFFLECK IS HERE. HIS MOVIE IS CALLED “THE WAY BACK”, WE’LL BE RIGHT BACK.>>>ALL RIGHT, COME ON, GUYS, WE’VE GOT 15 SECONDS LEFT. BRANDON, 20’S GOING TO PICK YOU UP FULL COURT.

IT’S FUNNY, BECAUSE WE HAD THE SCREENING OF THE MOVIE HERE, AND SOME OF THE PEOPLE ARE HERE LIKE, OH, IT’S GOING TO BE ONE OF THOSE BASKETBALL MOVIES WHERE WE KNOW WHAT HAPPENS. FIRST OF ALL, IT’S A GREAT MOVIE, I THINK THIS IS MAYBE YOUR BEST PERFORMANCE OF ALL THE MOVIES YOU’VE BEEN IN.>>THANK YOU. I AGREE. FOR ONCE, WE’RE ON THE SAME PAGE.>>Jimmy: TALK A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THE STORY.>>WE START OUT THE MOVIE. THIS GUY’S FALLEN ON HARD TIMES, DRINKING A CASE OF BEER EVERY DAY, WORKS CONSTRUCTION, DINGY HOUSE. BUT HE GETS OFFERED A CHANCE. HE WAS A HIGH SCHOOL BASKETBALL SDAR A STAR AND WASHED OUT A LITTLE BIT AND MADE NOTHING OF THAT. THEY OFFERED FOR HIM TO GO BACK AND COACH HIS HIGH SCHOOL BASKETBALL TEAM WHICH HAS ALSO FALLEN ON HARD TIMES, THEY’RE 1-9. IT FEELS LIKE THE CHEESY, SPORTS MOVIE CLICHE THING, BUT IT’S NOT. IT’S ABOUT HOW HE KIND OF REENGAGES IN HIS LIFE AND WHAT HE GETS FROM THESE YOUNG GUYS. IT’S ABOUT, YOU KNOW, BUT IT REALLY IS ABOUT AN INSPIRING, CATHAT I CATHARTIC MOVIE, YOU’RE GOING TO HAVE DIFFICULT THINGS IN LIFE, BUT HOW YOU OVERCOME IT. AND THE SCRIPT WAS REALLY SMART. IT DOESN’T SET IT UP IN AN EASY WAY OR PULL ANY PUNCHES OF THE AWFUL THINGS THAT CAN HAPPEN TO YOU, NO FAULT OF YOUR OWN, FAMILY MEMBERS AND STUFF. IT DOESN’T PULL ANY PUNCHES IN SAYING IT GETS BETTER, YOU CAN GET BETTER, AND I LOVE IT. IT’S A BEAUTIFUL STORY. THE GUYS WHO PLAYED THE BALL PLAYERS ARE AMAZING.>>Jimmy: THOSE KIDS WERE GREAT. WAS THAT CATHARTIC FOR YOU, GOING THROUGH THAT SAME THING, BEING ABLE TO PLAY BASKETBALL WITH THESE KIDS AND COACH THEM?>>IT REALLY WAS. IT REMINDED ME OF WHEN I STARTED OUT I DID THIS MOVIE, I HAD LIKE NINE LINES. I WAS AN EXTRA. AND I LOVED IT. I LOVE BEING PART OF IT. I LOVE SHOWING UP, LOOK, I’M ON CAMERA, WAY IN THE BACK OUT OF FOCUS, AND THESE YOUNG MEN WERE SO DEDICATED AND MADE IT SO REAL AND SO GOOD, I LOVED COMING TO WORK EVERY DAY, AND I KNEW I KIND OF HAD TO FORM A REAL RELATIONSHIP WITH THESE GUYS AND GET THEM TO ME AND EARN THEIR TRUST AND RESPECT. IT WAS A JOY EVERY DAY, THE KIND OF MOVIE.>>Jimmy: IT’S TERRIFIC AND YOU’RE FANTASTIC IN IT. I WANT TO ASK BUT ONE OTHER THING. >>SURE.>>Jimmy: I GOT THIS MAGAZINE TODAY, SITTING ON MY DESK. THIS IS THE MOVIE THAT YOU GUYS ARE SHOOTING OVER THERE?>>YES.>>Jimmy: AND WHAT’S — >>THAT’S THE MOVIE. THAT’S MATT.>>Jimmy: IS THAT A COSTUME OR JUST HIS NEW LOOK?>>NO, THAT’S JUST THE WAY HE DRESSES.>>Jimmy: DRESSES AS SOME KIND OF WIZARD?>>A MEDIEVAL DRAMA, AND HE PLAYS A KNIGHT.>>Jimmy: AND I HAVE A PHOTO OF YOU FROM THE SET AS WELL.>>THAT’S MY — THAT’S, I PLAY A FRENCH COUNT, AND ADAM AND MATT ARE KIND OF COMPETING TO BE IN MY GOOD GRACES, AND I’M GOING TO DECIDE WHO GETS MORE LAND OR WHATEVER.>>Jimmy: PICK ADAM FOR SURE. I MEAN.>>I DO.>>Jimmy: YEAH, OF COURSE, AFTER WHAT HE’S DONE.>>YOU CAN SEE THE RINGS. APPARENTLY NOBILITY WERE QUITE FOND OF JEWELRY. THEY ARE LIKE THE EARLY RAP STARS.>>Jimmy: BE HONEST, ARE YOU MAKING A SIEGFRIED & ROY PIC? IS THIS A RUSE?>>IT’S ROY.>>Jimmy: IF YOU ARE, I HOPE HE GETS EATEN BY THE TIGER. THAT’S ALL I’M SAYING.>>I HAVE NO PART OF THAT JOKE, O MY GOD.>>Jimmy: DON’T WORRY, HE’S IN FRANCE, WE’LL NEVER SEE HIM AGAIN. “THE WAY BACK” OPENS IN THEATERS FRIDAY.

  1. This was so entertaining 🙂 Alcoholism is no joke, but it’s wonderful to see that Affleck still has a sense of humor. I think “The way back” will be an excellent film. We are rooting for you Ben! May you know and feel your blessings every day and find joy and inner peace in all aspects of your life.

  2. I met Been Affleck…years ago when he was filming the Xmas movie with James Gandolfini. Such a nice dude and a cutie!!

  3. Ben has really grown as an actor in the last 10 years. Really solid movies lately, The Accountant, Argo, The Town were all amazing and honestly I loved him as Batman.

  4. I love Adam Driver, he's my favorite actor right now…. he's super talented, humble and great with his fans.

  5. I have always loved this guy. One of the few actors who is genuinely beautiful!! When he smiles and laughs is just Awesome!! Wish him well on him and his family.

  6. The story about Adam was so touching. You could see Ben talking from a very genuine place. So nice to see he was able to get his life together in order to show up for his kids. You can see he is not taking any moment with them for granted.

  7. This comment section is going to be filled with how great of a Father Ben has been and I agree!

    Dont mind me but anyone wanting to petition for Ben to adopt us softies can GET BACK IN LINE!!

  8. I feel like he's in a better stage of his life to play Bruce Wayne/Batman NOW then back when most of the DC movies were being filmed. Let's get him some decent scripts and let all that humanity come out in a Batman. Please?

  9. Ben Affleck and Adam Driver – the start of a beautiful new friendship.

    Looking forward to seeing 'The Last Duel' for their scenes together

  10. You look good Ben. Your face looks better & you look happier. We all have regrets about stuff. That’s life. Always say they don’t give a course called life 101, so we have to screw up & say well don’t do that again. Love from Tucson Az

  11. what a great interview. never thought Ben Affleck could be so thoughtful and engaging,… was proven wrong.

  12. This is the best/healthiest I can remember Ben Affleck looking in an age— dude, keep it up whatever is working for you.

  13. Something about this interview is off . I feel like Ben is trying really too hard to seem happy & he's very manic , he just wants to be liked by others so badly . I truly hope he is happy inside .

  14. We need Ben Affleck AND Matt Damon on the show!! Also that story he told about his son and Adam Driver was absolutely beautiful!!

  15. Some might say that is so Hollywood but making your kids happy on their birthday is an all of us thing. I do like he made sure to be there for the birthday. And Adam somehow playing the hero is just to good. There is always something that can connect us to each other.

  16. Adam always seemed a great person, polite and well mannered and it turns out to be true… great story!

  17. Damn, he looks great here. Smiling and everything!
    I'm gonna miss him as Batman – I mean look at him! Huge fellow with a face straight out of comic book page!
