Ben Affleck worries about how public perception of him might affect his children: “It’s really hard”

Ben Affleck admitted he didn’t really care how he was portrayed in the media until his kids grew up in a new interview.

Affleck, 49, spoke about his perception of the public in an interview with the Los Angeles Times.

“I came to a place where [the public perception] was so different from who I am that I just stopped reading and caring, “he told the magazine.” But then as my kids got older and started seeing the internet on their own , that’s the hard part. “

“Even the ‘Sad Affleck’ meme – that was funny to me. I mean, there’s no one who hasn’t felt that way at a junket. But my kids see it and I’m like, ‘Oh, come on. do they think their daddy is basically sad or they must be worried about me? It’s really hard, ”Affleck explained.
