Actress Elle Fanning, who will be seen with Ben Affleck in her upcoming drama Live By Night, says she is in awe of the Oscar-winning actor’s talent.

The 18-year-old star said she could not believe how one could write, direct and star in the same film, reported Entertainment Tonight.

"It’s insane because he wrote it and directed it and he’s starring in the movie… So you’re acting with the director.

It’s crazy!

"I would love to direct one day, so for me, seeing that, I mean, he’s thinking like a mile-a-minute about everything.

It’s pretty insane. So that was really, really cool to see," she said.
