Ben Affleck Details interview

‘The Town’ actor said in a recent interview that he’s not always present with his children, and he is afraid of being a ‘stay-at-home dad!’ Read on to find out what he said.

Ben Affleck has jumped from on-screen film actor to behind-the-scenes director, and has been behind such blockbuster hits as The Town and his new movie Argo, but the multi-talented father of three said his work ethic doesn’t always translate at home — his wife Jennifer Garner does most of the work!

The workaholic, 40, said in an interview with Details magazine that when he’s not at work, he’s always thinking about work.

“I am not very present in the rest of my life,” he said. “My wife’s very patient. She does everything.”

That’s not to say he doesn’t make the effort. “If I have time, I try to spend time with the kids, even if just to be a physical presence, the bath, whatever,” he said.

“But my mind’s always going, ‘How are we going to light that shot tomorrow? ‘What’s the master shot for that scene? Is there even going to be a master?'”

However, the actor and director does feel guilty about the amount of time he spends away from his kids.

“Anytime you think, ‘I’m wasting my time here,’ the first thought you have is ‘I could go home and be with my kids,'” he said.

“Now, you may go home and be with your kids and very quickly start thinking, ‘I wonder what’s on the work front?’ Because running around after three kids is very trying,” he joked.

But at the end of the day, he’s a father first, and wants to make sure his priorities are in order.

“I don’t want to be a stay-at-home dad. Work is very important to me. I like to work. But I need my work to mean something to me in order for me to not be home with them,” he said.
