50 years old actor, director, and writer Ben Affleck is counted among the most famous personalities in the world. He has always wished to be an actor ever since he could remember. Affleck got his first taste of acting experience with a Burger King commercial. It was the time when Ben met his long-standing friend and fellow movie star, Matt Damon. They went to acting classes and got to play little league next to each other. 

His first remarkable portrayal was in 1992’s School Ties, along with Matt Damon. After co-writing and co-starring in the Oscar-winning Good Will Hunting, the two became household names. 

Subsequently, he collaborated with several renowned directors of their period, including John Woo, John Frankenheimer, Richard Linklater, and David Fincher — experiences that surely influenced Affleck’s own directing journey, resulting in the Best Picture-winning Argo. So, we revisit Affleck’s massive contribution to the industry by listing his top 10 movies that you can find on Netflix.
