Jeremy Irvine - Jeremy Irvine: Ben Affleck is inspiring in 'fickle' industry

Jeremy Irvine believes Ben Affleck should be an inspiration to every movie star in such a ''fickle industry''.

The 'Great Expectations' star thinks the 40-year-old actor - who picked up the Best Film and Best Director prizes at the BAFTA Awards last night (10.02.13) for 'Argo', which he starred in and helmed - is ''someone who people can aspire to''.

Speaking prior to entering the official DISARONNO BAFTA After-Party at the Grosvenor House Ballroom, he told Rick Edwards: ''It's such a fickle industry you know, so it's nice to see someone who people can aspire to.''

Jeremy - who plays main character Pip in the BAFTA-nominated adaptation of Charles Dickens' novel of the same name - was delighted to see British flick 'Les Miserables' take home four BAFTAs including Best Supporting Actress for brunette beauty Anne Hathaway.

He added: ''It was great to see 'Les Mis' get something, and so many British people doing well. It's great.''

And Jeremy's 'War Horse' co-star, Tom Hiddleston, was pleased to see 85-year-old actress Emmanuelle Riva win Best Actress for her performance in the French film, 'Amour', which tells the story of an elderly couple in the twilight of their lives.

When asked whose victory he enjoyed the most, Tom replied: ''I think Emmanuelle Riva, for Best Actress. That category is one of the hardest categories.

''All the Best Actress performers were sensational but her performance in that film ... in Michael Haneke's 'Amour' was one that I couldn't fathom as I was watching it, she was just extraordinary.''
