Ben Affleck’s kids won’t act. The film director and actor known for his roles in Daredevil, Argo and Pearl Harbor doesn’t like the fact that children are exposed in magazines and does plan to discourage them from ever going into the showbiz field.
The star does have three children, one is seven year old Violet, four year old Seraphina and eleven month old Samuel along hie wife actress Jennifer Garner.
He told E! News at the Producer’s Guild of America Awards in Los Angeles on Saturday night (26.01.13):
”I would do whatever I could to discourage that. My kids have enough issues of being exposed in ways that I don’t want them to be exposed, in magazines and shows and stuff.”
But he also does say if one day his children arte interested in the acting world, they will have all his support. He said: ‘
‘You know, if you’re interested in drama, there’s great theatre classes and stuff and that’s what’s appropriate.”
Affleck, reveals that he thinks his working life is ”richer” because of his family life.
”They’re the most important people in my life. Family is a wonderful thing, but it doesn’t mean you can’t do other stuff in your life. In fact, having a family makes whatever other thing you have that much richer. If it was just me, I’d be home alone and think, ‘Well, something good happened at work’, but it’s much nicer to share it with people you love.
”I think any time you become a richer person you have more substance. I hope that happened to me with having a family, but you never know!”
