Rachel said she doesn't usually read reviews, but she did read Ebert's very positive review of the film. She said, "I love him as a writer and it's a great loss to the world and to the film world....to me it was a very spiritual review." Ben said it sent shivers down his spine -- in a good way --reading the review which was an honor. He said he visited with Ebert last summer and discussed Argo. He said he saw how Ebert lived so cheerfully under such difficult conditions. He shared that Ebert gave him a book about facing mortality. Ben says he barely remembers his now infamous Oscar acceptance speech about how much work his marriage is. He said he wasn't very articulate, but he was trying to show how much he loved his wife (Jennifer Garner). Ben says what you work on is what you value. Take a look:
