The two appeared on the red carpet at the Los Angeles premiere of “The Tender Bar,” which Clooney directed and Affleck stars in.
Affleck added of Clooney, “He’s just so good and so smart and creates a great environment.”
So would he want to act with Clooney?
“I would love to,” Affleck said. “He’s gotta hire me. I mean, he’s gotta cast himself and hire me. Maybe that’s the next step.”
Clooney had a different take on acting with Affleck, joking that he’s too short to stand next to the actor.
“He’s a foot taller than me! He makes me look like Mickey Rooney when I stand next to this guy,” Clooney said. “I think it would be too much sexy for one screen. Because he’s a one-time sexiest man.”
“The Tender Bar,” also starring Lily Rabe, Tye Sheridan and Christopher Lloyd, hits theaters worldwide on Dec. 22, and Amazon Prime Video on Jan. 7.
