Ben Affleck was left red all over while shooting Jersey Girl, when he burned his buttocks on an oven - prompting him to swear in front of his seven-year-old screen daughter.

The Hollywood heart-throb, who stars in the film alongside Liv Tyler and ex-fiancee Jennifer Lopez, had no idea the kitchen appliance sitting quietly behind him was switched on - but he soon found out.

Child co-star Raquel Castro recalls, "We were doing a cooking scene and he didn't really know the stove was actually on, so he leaned back and went, 'Ow! Ow! Cut! I'm burned my butt!'

"He said a curse, but I'm not allowed to say it."
