Ben Chooses Family Over Fame

Ben really is growing up and turning into quite the family guy. We told you to expect to hear more gushing from Ben about his life as a parent and husband now that he's making his big comeback. Well, here's more. He says that playing superman George Reeves in his upcoming movie Hollywoodland helped him realize what's important in his own life. Ben said this of Reeves:

"He was an iconic guy because of who he played but he died tragically. What he had was never enough. You need to learn there are far more things to make you happy, like a wonderful wife and child. I'm lucky I was able to see the hollowness of fame. Family's what really matters."

Check out more pics of nice guy Ben at the National Action Network's Dream Keeper's Awards.

I told my little niece, the very lovely Violet, "Sweetheart, you have a lovely daddy. And he looks damn good! Lost the weight for the role of George Reeves, directing a new movie. I think your Mommie and Daddy are really happy." And Ben, you darling, you just stay nice to your dear wifey and baby.

Fugly, annoying and a terrible "actor". Maybe he will make a better husband, although I doubt, but it's great that he's staying off the screen. I'm relieved.

He is looking better since I saw him last in US Weekly. It's good that he knows what's important in life.

No matter what, I can't see him without thinking J-Lo. His association with her has forever tainted him in my mind.

He's looking good! Much better then the post-Jlo period when he was a little flabby.

Or maybe it's the fact that he made horrible movie after horrible movie and people just gave up on him. :( I still think he's a down to Earth guy.
