The story goes something like this: Derek Cianfrance had Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams live together -- buy groceries, pay bills etc -- during the shoot of "Blue Valentine," filming all the "in love" stuff first before taking a quick break, and then lensing all the heartbreak after. The results speak for themselves. Whether or not Ben Affleck saw the film we don't know, but he's taking the same sort of approach for his upcoming hostage thriller "Argo."

Any budding screenwriters could take more than a few hints from the career arc of Ben Affleck. From Oscar-winning wonderboy, Hollywood's next big thing, to much-mocked star of flops like "Paycheck," "Gigli" and "Surviving Christmas," to critically-adored director of terrific Boston crime flicks "Gone Baby Gone" and "The Town," Affleck's had quite a ride, but he's firmly back on top now, to the extent that he's got the lead role in Terrence Malick's as-yet untitled next film.
