Argo star Ben Affleck and his mother Chris were photographed with his daughters – Violet, nearly 7, and Seraphina, nearly 4 – heading to the dentist in Los Angeles, Calif. on Tuesday (November 27). Equipped with rolling luggage, Violet brought along some toys while Sera toted her doll and a lunch kit.
Huge congratulations are in order for the sexy dad-of-three! Ben was recently named “Entertainer of the Year” by Entertainment Weekly.
With his mega-hit Argo that just hit theaters, Ben opened up about sharing in the success with his family-of-five.
“I had very low expectations for Argo‘s performance,” Ben shared. “I just hoped that over time people would find the movie. Also, being at a place in my life and my career where I know what I’m trying to do, it’s different than being 26. When you’re younger and have the early success that I had — it sounds like the worst Hallmark cliche — but I didn’t have anyone to share it with. I don’t mean I wanted someone to sit by the fire with. But when you have a family and children, you kind of see yourself reflected in them. I want to make the kinds of movies that my kids are proud of. I have higher standards, in a way, for them.”
But what did Jen and the kids think of his shaggy ’70s look for the smash hit?
“My wife is a very polite and kind woman. She and the kids did not like the beard,” he said. “It had an exposed wire vibe. It was hated in my home.”
