The 40-year-old maker of award winning film 'Argo', who has daughters Violet and Seraphina and son Samuel with actress Jennifer Garner, said he would discourage his children from joining Hollywood, reported E! online.
"I would do whatever I could to discourage that. My kids have enough issues of being exposed in ways that I don't want them to be exposed, in magazines and shows and stuff," he said.
Affleck said he'd prefer his children to take interest in theatre rather than films. "You know, if you're interested in drama, there's great theatre classes and stuff, and that's what's appropriate," he added.
