Ben Affleck Admits That His Daughter Violet Thinks He’s Embarrassing


Sorry, dad. Ben Affleck opened up in a new interview with Entertainment Tonight about his role as Batman in the upcoming Justice League movie and revealed that his 11-year-old daughter, Violet, thinks he’s “embarrassing,” though he plays one of the coolest superheroes.

During his chat with ET, Ben, 45 — who shares daughters Violet and Seraphina, 8, and son, Samuel, 5, with ex-wife Jennifer Garner — said that his girls are definitely impressed that their dad gets to brush shoulders with Wonder Woman, played by Gal Gadot. “The girls were into Wonder Woman. I like to think they were into Batman a little, but my girls [were] definitely into Wonder Woman,” he said of Violet and Seraphina, adding that little Sam is more of a Flash fan.

“[He] got really shy,” Ben said of his son’s meeting with the real-life Scarlet Speedster, played by actor Ezra Miller. “I was like, ‘That’s the real Flash.’ And he looked like he saw Jesus Christ,” the Academy Award-winner said with a laugh. “I was like, ‘Yup, that’s him. That’s the one, the real Flash.’”

Last year, Ben revealed how becoming a father and raising three kids has changed him for the better. “When you have kids, what’s that expression, ‘Your heart is outside your body,'” he said during a press conference for his 2016 film The Accountant. “All of the sudden you feel so vulnerable and this fear of a child being vulnerable is very, very powerful.”
