After directing, producing, and starring in the highly successful film "Argo," Ben Affleck is honored as Entertainment Weekly's 2012 "Entertainer of the Year."

The 40-year-old actor graced the December cover of the mag looking quite dapper in a vest and tie while discussing everything from his growth to fame to his Hollywood family.

Highlights from Mr. Affleck's interview are as follows. For more, be sure to pay a visit to Entertainment Weekly's!

On his success:
“When you’re younger and have the early success that I had — it sounds like the worst Hallmark cliche — but I didn’t have anyone to share it with. I don’t mean I wanted someone to sit by the fire with.”

On his family:
“But when you have a family and children, you kind of see yourself reflected in them. I want to make the kinds of movies that my kids are proud of. I have higher standards, in a way, for them.”

On his Oscar-buzzed film "Argo":
"I had very low expectations for Argo‘s performance. I just hoped that over time people would find the movie. Also, being at a place in my life and my career where I know what I’m trying to do, it’s different than being 26."
