Ben Affleck - Ben Affleck Plans To Ban Kids From Showbusiness

Hollywood star Ben Affleck is adamant he would never let his three children follow in his footsteps by entering showbusiness.

Affleck and his wife Jennifer Garner are parents to three kids - daughters Violet, seven, and Seraphina, four, and son Samuel, who turns one year old on 27 February (13).

But despite growing up with two actors for parents, the Argo director admits he would be reluctant to let his kids follow him into the spotlight.

He tells E! Online, "I would do whatever I could to discourage that. My kids have enough issues of being exposed in ways that I don't want them to be exposed, in magazines and shows and stuff."

However, Affleck would consider letting them perform onstage, adding, "You know, if you're interested in drama, there's great theatre classes and stuff and that's what's appropriate."
