English actress Gemma Arterton is one of the top British stars in Hollywood right now and gets to work with some great actors. One such actor that Gemma has worked with is Ben Affleck, who she stars with in the movie Runner Runner and she has admitted that she loved working with Ben.
Arterton told Collider, "Oh yeah. Ben’s great, too. It was actually really interesting working with Ben. We didn’t have as many scenes as me and Justin. We had this weird backstory, Ben and I. We had a relationship in the film, years ago, and he has this possessive thing over me and my character’s very dependent, she’s very cutting."
She added, "And there’s one particular scene where he finds out that I’ve just had a night of intimacy with Justin’s character and he gets very jealous and pounces on me, but that wasn’t in the script. It’s really fun and he really sprung it on me."
As well as starring Gemma Arterton and Ben Affleck, Runner Runner also stars Justin Timberlake, Ben Schwartz, Dayo Okeniyi and Oliver Cooper and it was written by Brian Koppelman and David Levien. Runner Runner is directed by Brad Furman and will open on September 27 in the UK, before hitting the US on October 4.
