Ben Affleck Wants His Three Children To Stay Out Of Showbiz

Ben Affleck wants his kids to stay off the showbiz path

Actor Ben Affleck has revealed that he does not want his two daughters and young son to follow him or his wife Jennifer Garner into showbiz.

Speaking to E! Online, the Argo director said that he hopes Violet, seven, Seraphina, four, and baby Samuel manage to stay out of the spotlight.

"I would do whatever I could to discourage that," he says. "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."

He did concede however, that he would let them take to the stage if they had an interest in drama.

"You know, if you're interested in drama, there's great theatre classes and stuff and that's what's appropriate," he said.

Refreshing celeb attitude, eh? Let's just hope his kids don't have other ideas!
