Ben Affleck Says His Daughter Violet Can Speak Better Spanish Than He Can!

Ben Affleck Says His Daughter Violet Can Speak Better Spanish Than He Can!

Ben Affleck has been speaking Spanish for a long time and his 14-year-old daughter Violet is currently taking Spanish classes in school… and he says she’s at the point where she speaks the language better than him!

The 47-year-old actor opened up during an appearance on The Kelly Clarkson Show this week.

“She’s always been a very good student, and she’s been interested in Spanish, and so I would often help her,” Ben said. “Now, all of a sudden, she’s gotten into the grade where she’s, like, in the harder Spanish classes and she’s getting better.”

“She’s right at the point where I think she might be passing me,” he added.

Ben says that Violet is now correcting him when he speaks the language!

“I was like, ‘Nope. This is not happening,’” he said. “I don’t mind that I can’t do your math homework when you’re 14 years old, but you are not going to be better at Spanish than me. So I’ve decided now I gotta take classes; I gotta do something to keep up.”

Ben was on the talk show alongside his co-stars from the movie The Way Back, which is now in theaters.
