Celebrated Hollywood actor, Ben Affleck,who will be seen in an upcoming solo Batman film has revealed that he is happy with the fact that his Hollywood career as a child actor didn't go according to the plan. And because of this he was able to enjoy his childhood.
Ben Affleck, who is 44 now, started his career in showbiz at a very young age back in 1984. However, he did not succeed then as a child actor.
About his past as a child actor Ben Affleck said, "I did do some child acting," But it was only when he grew up, he got to taste success in the profession.
"Luckily I didn't end up on a show and get famous and go on crack and get crazy. I had a normal childhood. My mother let me go do this thing and then forced me to come home." Ben Affleck said.
"It was a PBS series called 'Voyage of the Mimi'. It was for kids. Educational, kind of. You're laughing, but it's not a joke! It combined science and math topics with an interesting adventure that a young man took with scientists," he added further.
"I still feel like I have to pitch it! It was a lot of fun. We had a good time." said the actor.
