She may be the daughter of two famous actors, but Violet Affleck is not too good for washing her own car windows. Here, her dad, Ben Affleck, shows her his own particular technique. Too cute! [Photo: Fame/Flynet]
Ben Affleck is going to star in the “Gone Girl” movie adaptation. OMG. Have you read “Gone Girl”? Have you? Read it now. I haven’t read a page-turner like “Gone Girl” in years. It’s so good. It’s so good. David Fincher is said to be directing the film with Reese Witherspoon producing it, so you know it will be incredible. Read more on College Candy…
Ben Affleck reportedly grew his stately beard as a good luck charm for the awards season, and while it didn’t secure him a Best Director nomination, it did get his movie an Oscar for Best Picture. All in all, not bad for a good luck beard, right? But now it seems Ben’s famous facial hair is no more: apparently Jennifer Garner brought clippers to an Oscars after party at a Hollywood restaurant, and, bolstered by tequila shots and cheered on by George Clooney, shaved it off in the hallway (a bit unsanitary, yes, but hell hath no fury like a woman who’s tired of her husband’s beard).
Ami was delighted to hear Ben’s beard is gone, while I’m in a bit of a mourning period myself. I thought it looked great, mostly because it made him more closely resemble Commander Riker from “Star Trek: The Next Generation,” and that is always a good thing.

With the cold winter months approaching, it’s time to heat things up. Our new newsletter, Hump Day Hotties, will bring our favorite eye candy directly into your inbox every Wednesday. (Subscribe here!) Feel free to drool. We won’t judge.
This Hump Day Hottie is kind of a special one, because I’m bestowing it upon director Ben Affleck, not actor Ben Affleck,recognizing him as a hottie who has only improved — like, a lot — with age and a change of focus in his career. Ben initially, of course, became famous as an actor, for both good — “Good Will Hunting,” “Chasing Amy” — but more often bad — “Gigli,” “Jersey Girl,” “Bounce” — movie roles. He was Matt Damon’s taller sidekick, J. Lo’s suddenly tan boyfriend/fiance, and a reported gambling addict. He had such potential, but it sort of seemed like fame got to him and he didn’t know what to do with his creative impulses for a couple of years. Keep reading »
One of the most normal and happy families in Hollywood at least seems to be Ben Affleck, Jennifer Garner and their three kids, Violet, Seraphina and Samuel. Maybe that’s because the family keeps their home base in Boston and only lives in Tinseltown when one of them is working. Regardless, Ben and Jennifer seems to be awesome and involved parents who keep their kds out of the limelight and give them as regular a life as possible. I couldn’t stop clicking through these photos of the couple watching their doppelganger daughters (Violet is the spitting image of Jennifer, while Seraphina looks just like Ben) practice iceskating. From what I can tell, Violet is already better on the ice than I ever was! Click through to see more pics of the family being just ridiculously sweet together. [Photos: Fame/Flynet]
