The renowned Hollywood star Ben Affleck states that he had committed a lot of mistakes during his initial years of success in Hollywood.
The Batman v Superman star revealed that getting fame at the very early age had literally made things tough for him. He said he got drifted off his focus because of the early fame he received.
"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. When you're a young man in your 20s, part of that is making mistakes and learning from them." Said Affleck.
"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 stated further.
However, the actor does not want the same things to happen with his children. He is very cautious about keeping his children away from fame and spotlight.
"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." Said Affleck.
"I try to shelter them as best I can. That's my only real gripe," he added further.
