Ben Affleck On Younger Years: 'Getting Famous Totally Spun Me Around'

Ben Affleck is reflecting on his younger years and living his life in the spotlight.

Affleck rose to fame as the co-writer and star of 1997's 'Good Will Hunting' with Matt Damon.

"I'd always had a strong idea about my values and the direction I wanted to be headed in, then I ran into getting famous and it totally spun me around and I flailed around for a few years," he tells The Guardian.

"When you're a young man in your 20s, part of that is making mistakes and learning from them. I just made those in front of everybody, rather than privately."

"There's stuff I look back on and kind of cringe at but I always tried to treat other people well. My parents imbued that in me and the mistakes I made were mostly just of the embarrassing kind."

Affleck says getting married to his now-estranged wife Jennifer Garner in 2005 and having children.

"I think becoming a father makes you see the world differently and it's good."

"I'm at peace with paying my own price, what I'm not at peace with is when it invades on my kids' space and time. They didn't make any bargains. I try to shelter them as best I can. That's my only real gripe."

Of course, the actor was also asked about his rumored standalone 'Batman' film.

"That's the idea. But it's not a set thing and there's no script," he admits. "If it doesn't come together in a way I think is really great I'm not going to do it."
