Possession star Aaron Eckhart was flooded by questions from his mother while he was making his new movie Paycheck because she wanted to know the low-down on his co-star Ben Affleck.

Possession star Aaron Eckhart was flooded by questions from his mother while he was making his new movie Paycheck because she wanted to know the low-down on his co-star Ben Affleck.

Eckhart’s mother, along with the rest of the world, was fascinated with Affleck’s stormy relationship with Jennifer Lopez and wanted her son to give her the latest gossip on ‘Bennifer’.

He says: "I had my mom asking me, 'What's going on with Ben and Jen?' or, 'Where are they getting married. I wanna know what she's wearing.' It was all so that my mom can say to other people's moms before anybody knows. I'm like, 'Dude, what's going on?' and he would like tell me the whole scoop, but I wasn't telling."
