Ben Affleck: My Kids Would Love If I Did a 'Frozen' Sequel
By Jackie Willis
Ben Affleck's kids don't "give a sh*t" that their dad is Batman, but they love their Frozen.
The 42-year-old Gone Girl actor will soon portray the caped crusader in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but while many comic-book fans are eagerly anticipating the film's release, Affleck says his own children-- Violet, 8, Seraphina, 5 and Samuel, 2-- could care less. "Despite the fact that I'm playing Batman now, people would say, 'Are your kids into it?' The truth is, [they're] not," he revealed on Monday's Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon.
"If I was doing the sequel to Frozen, I would be a hero. My two older daughters could give a sh*t about Batman and they've now passed that affection onto my son. He's always like, 'Papa, can I watch Frozen?' And I'm like, 'No, dude, it's not on again!"
In an effort not to watch Frozen continuously, Affleck foolishly showed his son the clip of Fallon and The Roots doing a rendition of "Let It Go" that they performed with the Disney movie's leading lady Idina Menzel.
"He loves it," Affleck admitted. "And he wants me to sing along. I can't tell my son that I can't sing. So I just [mumble] and he's like, 'No Papa, do it like the man!' I was like, 'First of all, I'm your father, okay? Jimmy Fallon's not the man -- I'm the man!"
The actor also confessed that he's become that dad now that Violet is playing team sports. "My oldest daughter started playing basketball and I'm already that guy," he disclosed. "You remember in Parenthood, Ron Howard's brother was yelling at the kid from the sideline? That's me. I'm like, 'Bend your knees!' I don't even know if you should bend your knees, I’m terrible at basketball!"
