Ben Affleck doesn't want his kids to act before they are 18.
The 44-year-old hunk - who has Violet, 11, Seraphina, eight, and Samuel, five, with estranged wife Jennifer Garner - was just seven years old when he began his own career and though he has no regrets about the past, he wouldn't want his brood to experience the "downside" of fame until they are old enough to make their own decisions.
Speaking during a Q&A at the AutFest International Film Festival in California on Sunday (04.23.17), he said: "I think it's a hard thing. I love being an actor, I got into it as a child and I wouldn't change that. But I also wouldn't want to take my kids and push them out there before they were 18.
"If they are 18 and they want to make those choices and do that kind of thing, that's fine. But being a child actor, I just know too much of the downside of what that can be like."
However, the 'Accountant' star doesn't think he'd have enjoyed the success he has as an adult if he hadn't began his own career so young.
He admitted: "I had some great rewards, and I probably wouldn't have made it as an adult had I not built up that body of work as a kid, so it's a strange thing. My kids would be good in the school play. If they can handle that, they're in good shape."
Ben also believes that being thick-skinned has helped him deal with the failures along the way in his career.
He said: "You know you have to have a certain thickness of skin in this business because success and failure, as a performer, are really two sides of the same coin.
"You're putting yourself out there and being evaluated, and it doesn't go one way, all the way, every time."
Amanda Bynes has returned to Twitter.
The 31-year-old troubled actress - who has been predominately absent from the social networking site since she was admitted to a psychiatric unit at the end of 2014 - gave fans a nice surprise over the weekend when she shared a photograph online of herself standing next to a beautiful display of flowers looking healthy and happy in her joggers.
Alongside the photo, she wrote: "Stopping to smell the flowers on a gorgeous Sunday!"
This is the first time the blonde beauty has posted anything on the website since February when she felt the need to log back in to address some pregnancy rumors and a fake social media account.
She vented at the time: "I am not @persianla27. I am not getting married and I am not pregnant. I don't understand why twitter won't take @persianla27 down.
"I have asked repeatedly. This person continues to impersonate and harass me and twitter needs to take the account down.
"I repeat: I am not @persianla27. She got into my private instagram somehow and took all my photos and videos. (sic)"
Prior to that, Amanda gave fans an update on her Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising school (FIDM) and admitted she was "really loving it" and learning a lot.
She wrote: "Hi everybody! I haven't tweeted in a long time and I want to say hi! I've been really busy at FIDM, and I just finished my midterms.
"I am really loving school and I feel that I am learning a lot. I enjoy all of my classes and my teachers are excellent.
"I'm really appreciative of all that FIDM is giving me. I've been in school learning about the fashion business so I don't have time to tweet (sic)."
Amanda hasn't had the easiest few years as she was arrested for Driving Under the Influence in 2012 and that kickstarted somewhat of a downward spiral for her.
A few months later she was charged with two hit and runs although these were later dismissed following a financial settlement between her and the victims.
In 2014, Amanda's DUI charge was dropped and she was sentenced to three years probation as part of a plea deal. She also had her licence taken away.
She found herself in hot water once again later that year when she was caught whizzing around the streets of Los Angeles in a car with a suspended licence.
During this time she was also arrested at her home for possession of marijuana, attempting to tamper with evidence and reckless endangerment.
She also raised a few eyebrows following a series of bizarre rants on Twitter and was later placed on psychiatric hold and under the conservatorship of her mother.
She was released from the facility early and went on to focus on her fashion dreams.
Abigail Breslin feared she wouldn't be believed if she reported being raped to police.
The 20-year-old actress recently revealed she had been sexually assaulted by someone she knew, and she has now clarified that it was a person she was in a relationship with and admitted she didn't want to put her loved ones through the ordeal of a legal battle.
Explaining why she didn't report the attack, she wrote on Instagram: "First off, I was in complete shock and total denial.
"I didn't want to view myself as a 'victim,' so I suppressed it and pretended that it never happened. Second of all, I was in a relationship with my rapist and feared not being believed.
"I also feared that if my case didn't lead anywhere, he would still find out and would hurt me even more. Thirdly, I knew how hurt my friends and family would be after finding out, and I didn't want to put them through that."
The 'Scream Queens' star went on to admit that she had been left with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) following the assault and though she has made "progress", she still has "flashbacks and nightmares" about the incident.
She wrote: "I have made a lot of progress since the event occurred, but I won't pretend it isn't something I struggle with. I still have flashbacks, I still get nightmares, I still jump when somebody touches me unexpectedly, even if it's my best friend tapping me on the shoulder."
Abigail was responding to a commenter on her Instagram account who had suggested that "reported rapes are the only rapes that count", and she insisted the remark was incredibly "unhelpful".
She added: "To say that rapes reported are the only rapes that count contributes to the ideology that survivors of unreported rape don't matter. It's unfair, untrue and unhelpful. It's like [saying] you got a black eye from getting punched in the face, but because you didn't call the police, you didn't really get a black eye.
"Unreported rapes count. Reported rapes count. End of story."
Kylie Jenner thinks Rob Kardashian's relationship with Blac Chyna is "unhealthy".
The 19-year-old reality TV star has admitted it's become increasingly hard for her to support Rob's on/off relationship with the 28-year-old model, who is the mother of his five-month-old daughter Dream.
Kylie - who previously dated Chyna's ex-boyfriend, rapper Tyga - said: "It's really hard to support a relationship that's really unhealthy, especially when it's hurting my brother and now it's affected me.
"I just wish they could just stop this kind of roller-coaster ride."
Kylie allowed Rob and Chyna to live in one of her homes because she wanted to support their relationship.
But the teenage businesswoman was angered to discover that her property had been trashed during one of the couple's intense arguments.
Speaking on 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians', Kylie explained: "I agreed, cause me and Chyna kinda put everything behind us, and my brother seemed really happy and I wanted him to enjoy his new life and I wasn't here to block anyone's blessing.
"But my mom calls me to kind of keep me informed on what's going on in my home, and apparently Chyna threw something at my television that I left there. It's just a little disrespectful and I wouldn't do that in anyone else's home."
And in a conversation with her sister Kendall, Kylie warned that things could continue to get worse between Rob and Chyna over the coming months.
She said: "It's just really sad and I don't think it's going to end well."
Kylie's thoughts have been echoed by Rob's sister Kim, who said the relationship "just isn't that healthy".
Kim added: "It's so clear what this relationship is and that they're just not meant to be with each other."
Nick Cannon meets Mariah Carey "everyday".
The 36-year-old star is rumored to be on the cusp of rekindling his romance with the 'We Belong Together' hitmaker - but Nick has insisted the duo are simply "family" for the time being.
Responding to the speculation, Nick - who has five-year-old fraternal twins Moroccan and Monroe with Mariah - told TMZ: "You do realise we're family, right? I meet them everyday."
Despite this, Nick recently admitted he wouldn't rule out a reunion with Mariah, although he doesn't want to "mess up what they have right now".
He said: "That is always family - and when I say that, I say that to a level of I will always love her. That's always my dream girl. Like, to me, just because we're not intimate, I'm closer with her than probably I've ever been just based off of that's my family, that's the mother of my children.
"We talk every single day. We spend more time with the kids' school, karate class, gymnastics class, like, it's a full-time job. I wouldn't want to mess up what we have right now trying to do something else."
In fact, Nick revealed he prefers to "purposefully" stay out of Mariah's personal life, following her recent split from dancer Bryan Tanaka.
He said: "I don't know because I'm not in it. I'm purposefully like, 'Let's go do something with the kids. I don't care what you do in your personal life.' I don't know. I thought it was bizarre as somebody watching from afar. I thought the show was very produced.
"I didn't say that their relationship was just for show. I thought the show fabricated a lot of stuff because, as a producer, I was like, 'Oh, they positioned that. They put the cameras there.' I was watching it from that perspective. But I don't know what the relationship actually is."
Kendall Jenner thinks 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians' is "sad".
The 21-year-old model and her family members have become worldwide stars because of their appearances on the show, but Kendall has confessed that it's a "depressing" scenario.
Speaking on the program, Kendall said: "The fact that everyone's lives revolve around a show and to make someone happy with a show is the most sad depressing thing."
Kendall's sentiment was echoed by her half-sister Khloe Kardashian, who admitted that not everyone in the family is supportive of the program.
She shared: "We all don't think that it's a good idea that they film this show."
Meanwhile, Kendall is reported to have been "absolutely heartbroken" by the response to her controversial Pepsi ad earlier this month.
The reality TV star was left devastated after some members of the general public slammed the commercial for undermining the Black Lives Matter movement.
A source said: "Kendall is absolutely heartbroken by how everything has turned out, she had no idea it would end up like this.
"She's taking time out from the limelight to come to terms with everything. It's very upsetting for her, she never meant for any of this to happen."
Another source admitted it was a mistake to hire Kendall for the ad.
The insider said: "This is the first controversial campaign she has been involved with. Even though she had nothing to do with the production and the message of the campaign, she will be blamed for this since she is the face.
"The original intent of the commercial was to mirror all the global protests trying to make this world a more equal place for everyone. But they shouldn't have had a celebrity face tied to it if they wanted to try and send a strong message like this."
Bella Hadid's sister Gigi is her "best friend".
The 20-year-old model has followed Gigi, 21, into the fashion industry and Bella admits to relying on her sibling for guidance with her own career.
She told MailOnline: "Gigi is my best friend and I love her to death.
"She's been through everything I'm going through now because she's been in the business longer.
"If I'm sad I'll call her and she always makes me happy again. She's the best, I love her."
The Hadid sisters have historically had markedly different tastes in fashion, but Bella has revealed they've increasing started to swap outfits in recent years.
The dark-haired beauty explained: "When we were 13, she wore lots of colour and was like Malibu girl.
"But I always wore dark colours and leather. Both our styles are evolving more now. I go to her house now and she has all my stuff, we always end up sharing things.
"We share shoes, literally everything. I don't even remember giving it to her and she will completely deny everything until the death of her."
In addition to her sister, Bella also relies on her close friends and family to ensure she doesn't get carried away by her own success.
The model said she surrounds herself with honest people in order to stay grounded.
Bella shared: "It's tough, but I keep the people around me I've known since I was a kid. They know who I am and tell me not to be a b***h if I am."
Bella also said meditation plays a key role in keeping herself grounded in reality.
She explained: "I meditate to start the day. I have a meditation music list that helps me sleep. I like to listen to music and be around my friends.
"I'm very lucky that my job lets me travel the world. I went sky-diving twice in Dubai last week, which was just incredible. Jamaica is my favourite place."
Gemma Arterton never planned to become a movie star.
The 31-year-old actress received a government grant to study at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (RADA) in London in her youth, but Gemma never dreamed of being a star of the silver screen and was instead focused on making it on the stage.
She said: "I never thought I'd work in film. I always thought I'd be just a jobbing actor in the theatre.
"I remember in my third year at RADA, I did a budget - about the only one I've done - calculating how much it would cost to live in London. You are told you might work once a year. That's the life."
Gemma - who made her film debut in 'St Trinian's' in 2007 - admits she doesn't know what she would have done if her acting career hadn't worked out.
She told the Irish Times newspaper: "I'm a coaster. If it hadn't worked I'd have found something else to do. It's so precarious. Things fall apart. It's mad. It's not a job for anybody who wants to plan."
Meanwhile, Gemma recently admitted she has been offered different types of roles ever since she started to voice her dislike of big-budget Hollywood movies.
She explained: "I'm approached with projects that are much more female-centric because I've spoken out about it so much, which is a good thing.
"But I don't necessarily look for these kind of feminist messages or anything like that, but it's always quite nice when there's a message in there.
"The future projects I have are all kind-of about women that are great, or not great, they're idiotic, or silly, they're just about women so that's a good thing."
Jesy Nelson has turned to music to cope with her break-up from Chris Clark.
The 25-year-old singer recently split from the TV star and after returning from Little Mix's US tour this week, Jesy has been finding comfort in her love of music.
She said: "When you're sad you can listen to a song and it can make you feel so much better. I feel like music is magical."
Jesy's bandmate Leigh-Anne Pinnock thinks Clean Bandit and Louisa Johnson's collaboration 'Tears' is the perfect tune for overcoming heartache, because it carries a "f**k men" message.
Leigh-Anne told the Daily Star newspaper: "Louisa Johnson's song 'Tears' is a good one, because it's basically saying: 'F**k men' really."
Jesy split from Chris earlier this month, with an insider explaining that their separation was the result of them living "different lives".
The singer's life in the spotlight as one of Little Mix was reportedly too much for 'The Only Way Is Essex' hunk.
A source said: "Their lives are so different; it was never going to work.
"Chris is a normal Essex lad, he's very private and low key. He likes spending time with his mum and mates and not being in the spotlight."
Despite this, pair are said to have remained on good terms since they decided to call time on their relationship.
The insider said: "Jesy's life is a world away from his. She's a superstar, travelling the world and living in the spotlight.
"He got a taste of her lifestyle and it couldn't work - it's just not him. There's no bad blood it just wasn't working out between them."
However, Jesy has also suggested she may have had enough of men for good, telling her single pals on Snapchat: "I'm going to turn lesbian!"
Kendra Wilkinson is to star in a play called 'Sex Tips for Straight Women From a Gay Man'.
The 31-year-old beauty has revealed she is to play a lead role in the production in Las Vegas, which is based on the novel of the same name, and Kendra is hugely excited by the opportunity.
She told E! News: "I am going to play a lead role in a play called 'Sex Tips for Straight Women From a Gay Man' and it will be in Las Vegas. I am going to Vegas!
"Being a lead role in a play in Vegas? Like, come on! How much bigger can it get?"
Kendra will star alongside 'Queer Eye for the Straight Guy' actor Jai Rodriguez, with the show set to begin in Sin City on May 27.
The announcement comes shortly after Kendra claimed she is currently at her sexual peak.
The former Playboy model said that since turning 30, she has never felt more erotically charged or confident when it comes to lovemaking, and her husband, retired NFL player Hank Baskett, is "loving it".
Kendra spilled: "As a 31-year-old woman, I'm at my sexual peak. It's just the way it is - it's natural.
"Hank is loving it. He's supportive of it. I'm kind of flirty with guys every now and then but he's like, 'You put me first and I'm good.'"
In 2014, the couple's relationship was rocked when transsexual woman Ava Sabrina London publicly claimed she and Hank had engaged in a sexual act whilst Kendra was eight months pregnant.
Hank, 34, vehemently denied the allegations and Kendra says their relationship is now healthier than ever before.
The 'Kendra on Top' star said: "We're different people than we were years ago.
"You know, you change. But you have to change together. You have to grow together, not apart, and that's the challenge. Right now we're in the healthiest place we've ever been. It's all about each other.
"We want to help build each other and love each other and make sure we're happy. When we went through out big issue that was scattered everywhere, it needed to happen.
"Unfortunately it was a really rough situation but I'm a very faithful person and I think it really worked out for the best."
