Affleck dresses up as Batman for son’s birthday
Actor Ben Affleck was left surprised when his son demanded him to don his Batman avatar for his birthday party. The 43-year-old actor, who will play Batman on screen in upcoming film Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, said he found it “mortifying” dressing up as the edgy superhero in real life, reported Female First.
“He wanted a superhero birthday party and he wanted superheroes there, and I was like, ‘Alright, what heroes do you want?’ He’s ticking off heroes and he was like, ‘I want you to do Batman ... real Batman!’” Affleck said.
The actor and ex-wife Jennifer Garner threw a superhero-themed celebration for youngest child Samuel on February 27 and he felt uncomfortable lining up alongside Wonder Woman, Iron Man and Captain America, who were all used to entertaining young kids.
Speaking on Jimmy Kimmel’s Oscars special, he said, “First I thought, ‘It’s kids. It’s kids.’ I didn’t think that, of course, like, all their parents are there.
