Ben Affleck and Sacha Baron Cohen join Variety's "Actors on Actors," presented by Amazon Studios to talk Trump, the terrifying Rudy Giuliani scene in "Borat Subsequent Moviefilm" and playing an alcoholic on "The Way Back."

Affleck opened up about his own struggle with alcoholism and how he used that for his work on "The Way Back."

"This guy’s had a very different life from mine," Affleck said. "But what was interesting about the story was I hoped people would find some catharsis in watching him go through something very difficult."

Meanwhile the actor mused that Cohen must be "sued relentlessly and constantly."

"Oh, all the time," Cohen said.
