Ben Affleck has one person to thank for his recent slew of successful films: his wife, Jennifer Garner.
In a new interview with Playboy, Affleck, 41, says Garner, also 41, helped provide him with a stable home that separated him from a string of unsuccessful films and being tabloid fodder following his relationship with Jennifer Lopez.
"My wife was definitely around then," says Affleck. "Getting to know her, falling in love with her and being connected with her gave me a foundation to reach out and say, 'Okay, I'm going to do Hollywoodland. I'm going to direct Gone Baby Gone,' " Affleck said. "Those were the steps forward I needed to put positive stuff on the board."

Unlike her neurotic and insecure character Hannah Horvath on HBO's hit show Girls, Lena Dunham has never struggled with self-esteem or body confidence issues.
"This could very easily be taken out of context, and I think it's funny now, but I remember looking in the mirror as a kid and it would be like for an hour at a time, and I'd be like: I'm just so beautiful. Everybody is so lucky that they get to look at me," the actress, 27, tells Marie Claire UK's October issue.
"And of course that changes as you get older, but I may have held on to that little-kid feeling that was me alone in my bathroom," she says.

If anyone's okay with Crystal Hefner being married to a man three times her age, it's her parents.
Her mom and dad are not just supportive of her relationship with Playboy mogul Hugh Hefner, they also enjoy the chance to reap the benefits of her lavish life.
"My parents come up here pretty much every weekend," Crystal, 26, told PEOPLE on Thursday at the Playboy Mansion, just before her husband, 87, announced Raquel Pomplun as 2013's Playmate of the Year.

Peter Dinklage may not be a typical Hollywood star. But he certainly faces the thrills and challenges of being a huge celebrity – as evidenced by his being mobbed by admirers.
"Game of Thrones fans are the nicest people ever, but a thousand nice people coming at me gives me claustrophobia," the actor, who plays Tyrion Lannister on HBO's hit fantasy series, tells Playboy in a new interview.
"I can't wear a pair of sunglasses and pull my hat down and just disappear. I'm 4½ feet tall, so I sort of stand out."

Lena Dunham prefers to look like one of the ordinary girls.
The HBO series creator and star, 26, says, "There would be all kinds of weird challenges to deal with" if she had the body of a Victoria's Secret model.
"I don't think I'd like it very much," she tells Playboy in its April issue.
"I don't want to go through life wondering if people are talking to me because I have a big rack. Not being the babest person in the world creates a nice barrier."

And the late-night war of words continues!
Following the back and forth bashing between Jimmy Kimmel, 45, and Jay Leno, 62, in 2010, Kimmel is at it again, now telling Playboy in its March issue (on newsstands Friday), "I always feel bad if I hurt anybody's feelings, but I don’t believe Jay Leno has actual feelings, and he doesn't seem to be that worried about other people's feelings."
Kimmel, who three years ago called Leno a "tattle-tale" for talking about him to Oprah Winfrey, goes on to say, "Strangely, I don't even like talking about him anymore. The only time I think about him is when I'm asked."

She was a housemother and kind heart to countless bunnies, and a warm and wise Playboy Mansion fixture. And now, sadly, Hugh Hefner's longstanding secretary and 40-year confidante, Mary O'Connor, has died.
Hefner, 86, Tweeted the news of her passing to his Playboy family late Sunday night.
"Mary passed away today. We loved her more than words could say," he wrote of the woman who, by some accounts, marked one of his longest female relationships.

We're soon going to be seeing more of Matt Damon – much more – in the Liberace biopic Behind the Candelabra.
"Normally I'd say no to nudity, but I just did a lot of it playing the long-term partner of Liberace," Damon, 42, tells Playboy in its January/February issue, on newsstands Dec. 18. "I mean, it's tastefully done. … But this movie's not going to be for everyone."
How far does Damon push things? Consider this scene he shot with Michael Douglas, who plays the flamboyant entertainer in the HBO movie that airs next year.
