He’s one of the most famous movie stars in the world, but Ben Affleck had his mind on other things as he attended the premiere of his latest movie The Accountant this week, holding up the red carpet arrival to watch baseball!

The 44 year old Hollywood A-lister arrived at the TCL Chinese Theatre on Monday night (October 10th) for the star-studded premiere of his new film, but decided to watch his beloved Boston Red Sox on a reporter’s phone as he made his way down the red carpet.

Affleck is known to be a huge fan of the Red Sox, admitting at one point that he used to place sizeable bets on their games. He remained glued to a reporter’s phone as he watched his team narrowly lose their post-season knockout game 4-3 against the Cleveland Indians.

“I’m gonna have a heart attack,” he can be heard murmuring to himself at one point, in a clip from USA Today reporter Bryan Alexander who also attended the event.

“I'm going to have to take a break,” Affleck said, taking KTLA reporter Doug Kolk’s phone from him temporarily, “this is agonizing. I would much rather be watching the game, but this is a job.”

He then managed to compose himself before answering a question from USA Today, who asked him about the game. “I saw the last play. It was very heartbreaking, so close,” he replied, “it was too bad. It just didn't happen.”

Affleck is an avid follower of all things Boston and sports-connected, and earlier this month it befell a poor correspondent to inform the actor that the Patriots had lost to division rivals Bills. Upon receiving the news, the star exclaimed a profanity in frustration
