Ben & Jen Step Out

9/8/2006 6:37 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner made a rare public appearance together at the premiere of Ben's new movie, "Hollywoodland." Though the two arrived as a couple, Garner made a bee line for the theater while her hubby walked the press line.

The new film centers around George Reeves, the man who played the original Superman in the 1950s TV series, and his mysterious suicide. "He's got a warmth that you can't really fake," says Affleck of the late Reeves, "it made the story to me all that much more tragic - that here was a guy who spent a lot of time trying to make everybody else happy and, in fact, was quite unhappy himself."

Diane Lane, who's also in the film, says there's a good reason for the speculation about his suicide, "I don't think anybody wants to believe that George Reeves killed himself, especially me. I was a big fan, I still am a big fan, he's my favorite Superman. There can be only one, and it's George."

"Hollywoodland" opens today.

I would also like to go see this film. George was the BEST Superman. I grew up watching him on TV...I also liked the Lois Lane actress.

ONE WHO KNOWS    

Soooo---here's another chance for Ben Affleck.
Who, once again cannot act anything but wooden.
Ben Affleck was given a PLUM role, with Hollywoodland.
But, he forgot the acting lessons!!!
Diane Lane, as usual, satisfies.
Adrien Brody is a pure joy. I predict Academy Award and/or Golden Globe noms for these two.
Alas, Affleck won't be as fortunate.
GET AN ACTING COACH, ALREADY! IT DID WONDERS FOR MATT DAMON!

Hollywoodland and Ben Affleck's performance came for me at an important time. It is about people facing bleakness in their life and how they coped, or did not cope. Ben Affleck was amazing in this role and I just wanted to say that for me personally I was moved to change my way of looking at things and I am grateful to have seen it.
