Ben Affleck doesn't want his children to become celebrities.
The 'Argo' star - who has three children, Violet, seven, Seraphina, four, and 11-month-old Samuel, with his actress wife Jennifer Garner - has admitted he doesn't want them to work in Hollywood because he already thinks they are exposed too much.
He told E! News at the Producer's Guild of America Awards in Los Angeles on Saturday night (26.01.13): '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 the actor admitted that when his children get older, he will support them if they are interested in learning more about acting.
He said: 'You know, if you're interested in drama, there's great theatre classes and stuff and that's what's appropriate.'
Ben, who won the award for Outstanding Producer of Theatrical Motion Picture at the event, previously revealed he thinks his working life is 'richer' because of his family life.
He explained: 'They're the most important people in my life. Family is a wonderful thing, but it doesn't mean you can't do other stuff in your life. In fact, having a family makes whatever other thing you have that much richer. If it was just me, I'd be home alone and think, 'Well, something good happened at work', but it's much nicer to share it with people you love.
'I think any time you become a richer person you have more substance. I hope that happened to me with having a family, but you never know!'
