Fincher is not only known for his perfect movies, 893485730 takes and his creepy adorable relationship with Rooney Mara, but also for his amazing, sassy comments and zero fucks given.

I was gonna make a post on Fincher going in about Affleck only, but I included some more because he’s the sassy king we deserve.

How He Cast Affleck as Nick Dunne
When asked why he decided to cast Affleck as the protagonist, Fincher reveals it all had to do with a little bit of Google-stalking.

"You cast movies based on critical scenes," he says. "In Gone Girl there’s a smile the guy has to give when the local press asks him to stand next to a poster of his missing wife. I flipped through Google Images and found about 50 shots of Affleck giving that kind of smile in public situations. You look at them and know he’s trying to make people comfortable in the moment, but by doing that he’s making himself vulnerable to people having other perceptions about him."

But dont get it wrong, guys! There’s only love coming from Fincher. And Ben knows it too.
“It was great to work with David and I learned a great deal from him,” Affleck continued. “David’s also, despite his reputation, a very funny and nice guy. Not just a demon.”

From TGWTDT:
Another scene he says took about 16 takes features Lisbeth eating a Kex bar and drinking coffee. Fincher tells us that since Mara weighs about "83 pounds" (his words) and ended up eating about nine Kex bars and drinking 18 shots of espresso that she was visably shaking after shooting the scene.

Cats are the best actors
“Scotty the cat, doing great cat work."

Fincher says, "Scotty the cat had many specific things that were written for him to do. Scotty was great, but I gave up on [him doing specific things] about five or seven minutes into the first day. [Instead] we would have closed rehearsals where we'd bring the cat in and say, 'Okay, what would Scotty do here? He'd probably be over here on this chair watching what's going on,' and we'd put Scotty in his chair and whatever he ended up doing first that's what we would rehearse the scene around."
