Ben Affleck: My Kids Inspire Me

Ben Affleck: My Kids Inspire Me

Ben Affleck takes the family dog for a walk on Tuesday (March 6) in Brentwood, Calif.

Last week, the 39-year-old actor and wife Jennifer Garner welcomed their third child, a son named Samuel!

Ben recently chatted with People about his Eastern Congo Initiative and credited his kids for inspiring his charity work.

“I got to a point in my life where I felt like I had been very fortunate,” Ben told the mag. “And I wanted to do something more with my life than just make movies and try to make money. I wanted to do something that was important to me in other ways and would serve as an example to my kids.”

“I tell them it’s important to be involved in the world in ways that help others and not just yourself,” he added.

    This family looks like your typical American family. Not sure that is the look when you’re Hollywood A listers. Just because you have children doesn’t mean you stop trying. Taking pride in your appearance actually makes you feel better about yourself. He’s probably going to go through a midlife crisis soon and begin hating his life. Don’t let yourself go!

    Do Ben Afflect’s kids inspire him to look like a homeless man?! He seems to be hardly making any movies lately. His one time partner Matt Damon is doing much better than him. (Ben – HINT – in Hollywood image and visability is everything!)

    @Yes: I understand that is one of the reasons he dumped her. She tried to change him. He is much happier being himself and his wife is glad to see him happy and content. Best of the good life to him and his lovely family.

    it’s in their contracts they have to change their looks up every 10 to 14 months, they spin a wheel and it lands on a look and they adopt it .. basic hollywood math !

    Love the couple, the daughters are the cutest and I can’t wait to see photos of baby Samuel. They live a quiet life, always with the kids…they are an example of a successful couple who also has family as priority.

    Guys, he has this look for the 70′s themed movie, Argo, that he recently made and directed, I assume he has to keep the look going until they are sure there is no need for reshoots…. obviously you can’t grow hair back quickly enough should that need arise, once the editing is over and done with, I’m sure he will return to his clean cut look.

    I adore him and Jennifer together, I think they make the cutest couple, and they make the most gorgeous kids…..can’t wait to see pics of Samuel, even though I know they are in no hurry for us to see him by invading their privacy, I can’t help myself, can’t wait to see him. Favorite celebs and celeb family hands down.

    to Grace

    you really aren’t that bright are you? Ben is making a film called Argo which is a true story. He has the role of Tony Mendez, who had longish hair and a beard.

    Will you JLO Rican trolls get off the blog already! He dumped that loud, ghetto JLO classless woman because he didn’t want her period they were from two different worlds and she tried to make him into a strutting pimp when Ben is the All American boy. JLO couldn’t groom a dog much less the already perfect Mr. Affleck. Garner made sure that Ben could e himself he didn’t need grooming and as a result he is happy and successful and once again on top of his game.

    The Affleck’s found out the hard way that these people simply can’t move on when he had to get Restraining Order against Jennifer Lopez’s mother to make her leave his family alone. Congrats on the baby boy Ben you must be over the moon having a son.
