SICK BEN AFFLECK STRUGGLED THROUGH ARGO'S TURKEY SHOOT
Thursday, October 11, 2012 - Ben Affleck struggled to make his new movie ARGO on location in Turkey after falling sick during the shoot.
The Good Will Hunting actor stars in and directs the drama, which chronicles the heroic story of a CIA rescue mission to save hostages in Iran in the 1970s - and some of the action was shot in Istanbul.
However, the location shoot was tough for Affleck, who came down with a
nasty bout of influenza, but he refused to take a single day off.
Argo producer Grant Heslov tells The Hollywood Reporter, "He was really, really sick, with a fever, the whole thing, and he didn't take a day off. At the worst point, he left a bit early, and he had to be feeling really terrible to do that."
