Even though their dad is one of the most famous actors in the world, Ben Affleck‘s daughters, Violet and Seraphina, still get starstruck sometimes. While visiting The Kelly Clarkson Show to promote his new film The Tender Bar, Affleck and Kelly Clarkson bonded over introducing their kids to their favorite artists—only for them to totally freeze up in the moment.
For Clarkson, the awkward moment came when she introduced her son, Remington, to Jason Mamoa, aka Aquaman. For Affleck, however, he took his kids to meet their favorite pop star, Taylor Swift, at one of her shows. The meet and greet didn’t go as planned when Violet and Seraphina suddenly felt very shy in Swift’s presence.
“I took my daughters to meet Taylor Swift and they’re…” Affleck recalled, imitating his daughters’ shy, but awestruck expressions. “I was like, ‘What are you talking about? We came all the way here, it’s Taylor Swift, say something!’” He even had to convince Swift that his kids really were two of her biggest fans. “I’m telling you, they’re fans,” he remembered telling her.
“You look like a liar. You’re like, ‘I swear they know your songs,’” Clarkson joked, feeling his pain.
Affleck’s young Tender Bar co-star Daniel Ranieri had no qualms about meeting one of his heroes—Batman himself. The 10-year-old recalled first meeting Affleck on set and immediately asking him what it was like to play Batman. Maybe Ranieri can give Clarkson and Affleck’s kids some tips on how to avoid getting starstruck by your favorite artists.ORDER A COPY OF ROB’S NEW BEST SELLING BOOK!
