Ben Affleck  stepped out to attend the Do Something Awards in Santa Monica, CA, on Sunday evening. Ben was being honored for his work in Africa on his Eastern Congo Initiative. It's been a big few days for the actor, writer, and director — Ben Affleck turned 40 on Wednesday . Ben's wife Jennifer Garner  made it back just in time to celebrate with him, though earlier in the week she was taking care of her The Odd Life of Timothy Green promotional duties in NYC. Ben will be on the road for his own film soon when Argo premieres at the Toronto Film Festival.
