VIDEO: Ben Affleck Reveals Why He Would 'Discourage' His Kids from Acting
Ben Affleck is opening up about the downsides of fame and why he doesn’t want his children to get caught up in it.
“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,” Ben added, reflecting on his own journey. “I was 24 years old and it was a confusing time. 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.”
