Ben Affleck “Would Discourage” His Kids From Acting

Don’t expect Violet, Seraphina and Samuel to walk in mom and dad’s footsteps.

In a recent interview with Extra, Academy Award-winner Ben Affleck said he wouldn’t encourage his kids to get into acting.

“I wouldn’t allow them to do it until they’re 18… and once they were 18, they can do whatever they want to do, but I would discourage it,” Affleck admitted.

He went on to describe his own experience with fame.

“Overnight, I went from somebody no one ever heard of, to somebody that gets recognized on the street and could get a table at a restaurant,” he shared. “I was 24 years old and it was a confusing time.”

He added: “I’ve got three kids now, and it’s a whole long road later. I have a much better perspective on it all, although it still can be confusing and difficult to deal with… there’s no map to it, you’ve just got to figure it out on your own.”

The Gone Girl star, 44, and estranged wife Jennifer Garner, 44, recently spent the holidays together as a family.

Ben shared that his daughter are really into American Girl and Taylor Swift, while his preschooler got a bat cave for Christmas.

“Yeah, my daughter got an iPod touch, no phones, can’t call anybody, can’t text,” he shared.
