Ben talks Jen, Violet and Change on Ellen

It's so great that Ben is no longer the overexposed obnoxious celebrity anymore. He went on Ellen yesterday and you can just tell he is more humble. He tries not to talk too much about personal matters but he still talks like a man very much in love with his wife and daughter. He's a total family guy now and Ellen even asked him if he wanted more kids. She's really getting gutsy about her questions. First she asked Cameron when she was going to marry JT and now she wants to know how many kids Ben is planning on having. Here's more:

Ellen DeGeneres, broaching the topic with the 34-year-old actor on Wednesday's The Ellen DeGeneres Show, asks: "Will you have more? Should I ask that question?"

Affleck's response: "You know … sure, I would love to."

"Many? A lot?" DeGeneres wonders aloud, prompting Affleck to say, "Okay, let's back it up there."

Suggesting, however, that "some people" would want "five or six" kids and would "love to have a large family," DeGeneres is told by Affleck: "I think I should probably talk to my wife before I talk to you."

They also talked about Violet's upcoming first birthday and his plans to treat her mother well since her life has changed so much over the past year. Awww, how sweet. Ben also helped Ellen kick off a campaign to help end hunger. It's all about small change people - it's so easy. Click here to watch Ben and Ellen and learn more.

I really hope he gets a lot of kids, he is a wonderful man and a good father. He should consider to act in the same movies as Gene Hagmann, as Gene always chooses good movies. Ben and Jennifer is suited for each other, also 'zodiac wise' they are perfect for each other. So be happy and keep smiling.

The thing about Ellen is that she's so nice about it, celebs can't help but answer her questions! ____________________________________ Don't tick me off. Or you'll get it.

I like Ben. It’s good to see him happy and his career is doing better. Ben has said he didn’t manage the press well during Bennifer. He has learned form his mistakes and has moved on. Ben doesn’t see himself as Blameless in the Over Exposure of himself. He realized he couldn’t live like that. I see nothing wrong with that. It’s called keeping your Sanity. People tend forget that we don’t live these people’s lives. I think Ben knows the cameras and media \ public criticism come with Celebrity. The best thing any celebrity can do is hide out until it’s time to promote something. That’s what he has been trying to do. I will give Ben credit for that. He did change his life after Bennifer. I don’t think people put the blame on J lo alone for the Bennifer Over-Exposure. If anything Ben got Bashed way more than J lo did, because Ben seem to be acting out of character. If it seems like J Lo got the Blame for all the Over-Exposure it’s because of her own history of Show Boating - “The Green Dress”, Short Multiple Marriages, Cheating allegations by first husband, Dating Piddy (Mr. Show Boat), The Nightclub Gun Incident with Piddy. And let’s not forget J Lo showed up at the Oscars with a see through top on and the cameras couldn’t show her below the neck. All these things happen before J Lo hooked up with Ben. All attention getting situations. J Lo already had the a reputation of being over the top. After Bennifer J Lo didn’t help herself any by dating Marc a week after the Bennifer break up and Marrying him 5 months later. Lets not forgot there was a wife and kids in the picture at the time. I think it’s unfair to say that Ben and Gwyneth’s relationship was Over-Exposed. Brad Pitt and Gwyneth’s relationship was one of the most Over-Exposed in Hollywood History. They went to premieres together, Had the same hair cuts, Hung out with her parents and Got engaged. Brad even called Gwyneth some not so nice names in the press after the break up. I’m not a fan of Gwyneth’s so I remember it well. I guess my age is showing. I’m a Celeb Watcher form way back. May Bennifer RIP.

Well, even he admits he went nuts with the J-Lo thing - but he also took the time off, thought about what he wanted and then made some good decisions - whereas she is still trotting that wreck of a husband off to every fashion event there is. But it would have been a lot of fun if he had stayed with J-Lo and then watched his face when he had to the Cruise farce with old frozen face Lopez. But I TIVO'd Ellen and he was so nice when he said that the first birthday should really be about the mom, and also raved about what a great cook and everything she is. That marriage might last just because he appreciates her so much.

I think he's never been obnoxious. He's just a cute actor. Tomorrow is Violet's birthday. I haven't seen to many pics of her.

I like him better with Jennifer Garner, but I still do not like him.

LOL that belt buckle looks like an airline seat belt! Ben was Mr. Down to Earth and fell in love with a super shallow greedy publicity whore and he jumped right in. But lets be real. It was out of character and he is much better with Jen G. Who is also down to earth and a real woman vs high maintaince diva.

I think is ridiculous that everyone puts the blame of that super overexposed relationship in Jennifer only (believe when I tell you I am NOT a fan of her) but Ben Aflleck is as guilt as her, first of all his previous relationship with Gwyneth was also target of publicity and he talked about in the press, second of he could have tried to be more low profile but he didn’t ( it wasn’t like Brangelina who goes to freaking VETNAM and even there that paparazzi follow and find them ) Jennifer and Ben went to each others premieres, to Gala Dinners, to fashion shows, they made video clips together (his idea btw) gave interviews, THEY BOTH made the mistake. But when the backlash bite them in the a s s, and almost ruined their career he jumped the ship, dumped Jennifer and started to keeping a low profile. I am not saying that Jennifer didn’t loved the attention, I really thing that that super wedding ceremony that she was planning was to make the two of them the new golden couple of Hollywood. But as usual the woman took the all the blame and the guy (poor thing) was trapped in her hands ,finally break way and found freedom. GIVE ME A BREAK!

Agreed.. much more appealing now with Jen than J-Lo. Maybe they can fill the Reese/Ryan void of a true loving Hollywood couple?

Mmm, pretty car. I used to think Ben was so hot. He's okay and I don't mind him, but I'd much rather have his car. I'm getting so OLD.
