Stars turn out for European premiere of Ben Affleck's latest film 'Live By Night' while Sienna Miller denies reports she cried after long sex scenes. Rough Cut - no reporter narration.
ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) The stars of Ben Affleck's latest directorial effort 'Live By Night' walked a chilly red carpet in London on Wednesday (January 11) for the film's European premiere. Affleck wrote, produced, directed and starred in the film which is set in the Prohibition era and follows military veteran and police chief's son Joe Coughlin (Affleck) as he slowly descends into the world of gangsters. The film is marked out by encounters with three women, the gangster's moll Emma (Sienna Miller), the Cuban Graciela, and the wannabe actress Loretta (Elle Fanning). There had been media reports that Miller had cried after filming long sex scenes with Affleck, but she denied this at the premiere. "Twisted around. No, we had a day and there was a montage of different scenarios. But I've just heard there was all this thing that I was crying. I was laughing, crying with laughter, not crying, not weeping and crying. That's so...irresponsible journalism. No, it's always the same way. Yes, good," said the British star. Affleck earlier had joked that Miller accused him of trying to make himself look like an impressive lover when he worked as director. "Sienna accused me of trying to make myself look like a much more impressive lover than I really am in the sex scenes, but I was just doing multiple takes. It wasn't as though I was trying to actually pretend that in real life I could do multiple takes," he said. When asked what drove him on to make the movie Affleck explained that he wanted to produce something which reminded audiences of classic gangster films. 'Live By Night' is released in the UK on Friday (January 13).
