BEN AFFLECK SPEAKS OUT ABOUT THE PAPARAZZI AND CHILDREN: Ben Affleck fully supports his wife Jennifer Garner's initiative to put an end to the paparazzi following the children of celebrities. The actor told Playboy in a new interview, "You can say what you want about me. You can yell at me with a video camera and be TMZ. You can follow me around and take pictures all you want. I don't care. There are a couple of guys outside right now. Terrific. That’s part of the deal. But it's wrong and disgusting to follow children around and take their picture and sell it for money." He added, "It makes the kids less safe. They used to take pictures of our children coming out of preschool, and so this stalker who had threatened to kill me, my wife and our kids showed up at the school and got arrested. I mean, there are real practical dangers to this."
