Ben Affleck - Oscar Nominees Luncheon 2013

Ben Affleck suits up for the 2013 Academy Awards Nominations Luncheon held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel on Monday (February 4) in Beverly Hills, Calif.

Earlier in the day, Ben and his daughter Seraphina grabbed a quick bite to eat for breakfast at the Brentwood Country Mart in Santa Monica.

The day before, Ben‘s wife Jennifer Garner took Sera and Violet to a local farmer’s market to pick up some treats.

FYI: Ben is wearing Dolce&Gabbana to the luncheon.

    I just saw an interview with Joe Kindgregan on Access Hollywood, who is a guy that suffers from Ataxia-Telangiectasia (A-T), who Ben became friends with back in 1998 when he spotted him at a Dallas airport while filming Forces of Nature. They have remained close friends, (Joe’s mom said Ben never goes more than 3 months without seeing Joe) and they communicate regularly. Ben and Jen invite Joe to all of their premiers and he gets to hang out on set. Joe’s mom was saying he has met SO many celebrities through the two of them, especially at Jen’s premiere for Valentine’s Day because it was such a star studded cast. I had heard about their close friendship before (i remember reading that Ben was the guest speaker at Joe’s HS graduation in 2007) but i had forgotten about it because it’s not something that Ben brags about. It was an interview with Joe and his mom and they showed all the different fundraiser work Ben and Jen do to raise awareness and for research and they showed all the different personal photos of Ben, Jen and Joe through the years and they showed all kinds of signed memborbilia in Joe’s bedroom in Virginia from the different celebrities he’s met over the years. (One being a baseball cap signed by Matt Damon and Ben jokingly crossed out Matt’s signature and put his own with an arrow that says “real actor” lol).

    Well anyways the point behind the story was that today is Joe’s birthday and Ben flew Joe and his mother out to CA and they are celebrating his birthday and they are staying at the Affleck residence. He doesn’t even know what theyre doing or where theyre going, it’s a complete surprise. It was really sweet watching this and it really made me have a lot of respect for Ben and Jen because they are genuinely friends with this guy (he was just a young boy back when he met Ben) and they don’t flaunt it. Most people probably don’t even know about their friendship. It was very touching. This was actually not even the first birthday that Joe has celebrated with Ben because in the pictures, on of them was of Ben presenting Joe with a birthday cake full of candles from a long time ago because Ben looked really young! Happy Birthday Joe!

    @Brittany – thanks so much for your post! Every now and then I think about what happened to Joe K. and now I know! Am happy they keep in touch and keep the paps from intruding! Ben and Jen do more than most people realize and are also very private and do not look for fanfare/publicity like some other stars do!! Happy Birthday to Joe!!!

    @Brittany Ann Jade Graham: I am also aware of the close friendship with Ben, Jen and Joe and his mom. Thanks for the update as it has been a while since I read anything about him. Glad to hear that he is still in touch with the Afflecks and wish him a happy bday as well. (that is if he reads this by any chance).

    God bless the Afflecks and all their fans.
