As the stars like to say, it's just an honor to be nominated.
Throughout their careers in Hollywood, Ben Affleck and Sacha Baron Cohen have earned plenty of recognition for their work on the big screen. But while participating in Variety's Actors on Actors series, the actors couldn't help but address one category.
During the candid conversation, Sacha brought up the time Ben was nominated for Best Depiction of Nudity, Sexuality or Seduction by the Alliance of Women Film Journalists in Gone Girl. After failing to take home the award, Ben playfully looked back on the loss by turning the tables.
As he told Sacha, "I mean you do so much frontal, you've been so naked, and yet you were overlooked."
Sacha replied, "Yeah, the Alliance of Women Film Journalists never saw what I saw in the mirror."
But wait, Ben had to have the last word. "I noticed in the past, when you blacked out your penis, it was 14 inches," he shared. "Now, how close to the truth was that really?"
Sacha responded, "I feel like we're veering away. Tell me about your Batman!" And that's how you change the subject.
All jokes aside, the conversation focused on a variety of topics including their most recent projects and future in Hollywood.
At this point in his life, Ben explained that he is much more particular on what roles he will accept as his children continue to grow up.
"I no longer have the ability to do something when I'm bored halfway through it and hate it," he explained. "I just can't do it. It's not worth it to be away from my kids. If I'm going to travel, there had better be something really satisfying that I think they'll see at some point, hopefully. Although my kids are like, ‘Dad, we don't want to watch your movies.'"
Ben continued, "I'm just looking to do stuff that is personally rewarding. I think my Armageddon days are behind me."
