If you’re looking to master a game like Ben Affleck, he simply took some time to learn about the game and became such a good player that the casino thought he was counting cards.
To Be Or Not To Be

Stephenie Meyer did not picture Robert Pattinson as her ideal Edward Cullen, the only actor she imagined playing her beloved character was in fact Henry Cavill. As well as being Stephenie Meyer’s first choice he could have been a leading man in many other popular films including Batman Begins, James Bond and even Superman Returns but lucked out to other actors.
Work It Out

Henry Cavill also had to work just as hard to portray Superman, he endured many phases with the most extensive being the bulking phase. For Henry Cavill to achieve his physique for Superman in the bulking phase he centred on Olympic weight lifting movements, a very complex system but with many effective lifts that build muscle, strength and power.
Both Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill are extremely multi-talented actors. Both of them can speak a few languages fluently. Ben Affleck can speak Spanish and French. It was first rumoured that Henry Cavill could speak up to 9 different languages fluently.
