Meanwhile, Affleck reportedly gave his Deep Water co-star, Jacob Elordi some words of wisdom about fame. When the latter spoke with GQ, he said that he asked Affleck for advice on how to navigate his success and the dad of three gave him the best response.

According to Elordi, Affleck admitted that there were times wherein he lost his authenticity and sometimes even felt like a phony for oddly craving tabloid coverage at times.

However, Affleck and his ex-wife, Jennifer Garner have always been open about the negative effects that the paparazzi had on their kids.

In 2013, the actor said that it’s wrong and disgusting when tabloids follow his children everywhere they go.


“It’s wrong and disgusting to follow children around and take their picture and sell it for money. It makes the kids less safe. My kids aren’t celebrities. They never made that bargain,” he said (via Business Insider).
