Ben Affleck says it was a nightmare becoming a film director because of snobbery from Hollywood bigwigs.
The 40-year-old turned director with Argo and he says he had the last laugh when he won the Best Director for the movie at the BAFTAs, reported Contactmusic.
"People are skeptical of actors who try to cross the border and try to direct and be more serious. So I had to prove myself, like you have to prove yourself in life. I've had experiences where I've been a little more exposed or had a few more bumps than usual. But in this business you're always having to prove yourself. When you get to the next movie you're at zero. The next one I do could be a disaster. You start at the beginning again," he said.
Argo is up for six Oscars next week.
