Schilling: Ben Affleck is amazing

Working with Ben Affleck on new thriller Argo was "mindblowing", his co-star Taylor Schilling has revealed.

Good Will Hunting star Ben also directed the film, in which he plays a CIA agent forced to concoct a cover story to rescue six Americans from Iran.

Taylor, who plays his wife, said: "He's amazing, that was a totally mindblowing experience."

As for whether Ben successfully juggled his directing and acting roles, Taylor said: "He seems to wear both hats quite seamlessly."

The US actress also stars alongside heartthrob Zac Efron in new tearjerker The Lucky One, about a US marine returning from a tour of duty in Iraq.

"I hope people leave feeling perhaps a bit more inspired to do something that scares them and trust themselves a little bit more and take a risk," she said of the film.
