Ben Affleck And Jennifer Garner’s Daughter Has Grown From Tiny Tot To Teen
Feb 19, 2021 by apost team
Violet Affleck is only 14 years old and currently already as tall as her mom, 48-year-old actress Jennifer Garner. The two were spotted earlier this year in March in Los Angeles' Brentwood neighborhood for a mani-pedi session. Garner is 5'8 tall while dad Ben Affleck is 6'4.
According to celebheights.com, mom Garner is 5'8 while dad Affleck is 6'3, so it should not come as a surprise that Violet will soon tower over her mother. Violet has been reported to be "a real mommy's girl," who shares similar personality traits with her famous mom. For example, both enjoy cooking. Besides Violet, Affleck and Garner have two other children: Seraphina, 11, and Samuel, 8. According to In Touch, Garner is often spotted taking her children to school or to soccer practice. As the eldest child, Violet is allegedly very protective of her younger siblings. “Violet’s extremely protective of Seraphina and Samuel and really watches out for her siblings,” a source revealed. “She’s extremely mature for her age.”
Jennifer Garner made an appearance on PBS' Tell Me More With Kelly Corrigan which aired last month where she talked about how upset she was with the way the paparazzi dealt with taking pictures of her underage children. She said, "For 10 years, there were at the very least six cars and often 20 outside of our house, and outside of school, and at the pediatrician. And you're begging them, ‘Please step aside from the pediatrician's door. I have a sick kid. Please.'" It got so intense to the point where the paparazzi were "causing car accidents all the time." "I'd go through a yellow light and there would be 15 cars that would go through the red light without compunction," she added.
Ben Affleck shared the same sentiments. In an interview with Playboy in 2014, Affleck talked about how he and Garner had met with California lawmakers to get legislation passed that would prevent paparazzi from getting into too close a proximity to children, and also prevent the “stalking behavior” of photographers. “You couldn't chill the internet coverage of celebrities if you tried,” he added.Ben Affleck, Violet Affleck (2014), (Bauer-Griffin/GC Images/GettyImages)
“You can say what you want about me. You can yell at me with a video camera and be TMZ. You can follow me around and take pictures all you want. I don't care,” Affleck said in the interview. “But it's wrong and disgusting to follow children around and take their picture and sell it for money. It makes the kids less safe. They used to take pictures of our children coming out of preschool, and so this stalker who had threatened to kill me, my wife, and our kids showed up at the school and got arrested. I mean, there are real practical dangers to this.” In 2010, a man by the name of Steven Burky was sent to a mental institution after being accused of stalking Garner and Affleck, BBC reported. He was arrested after he showed up outside a preschool that one of their daughters attended. He was charged with stalking and violating a restraining order but pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity.Jennifer Garner, Ben Affleck (2013), (Jason Merritt/Getty Images Entertainment/Getty Images)
In 2015, Garner told Southern Living that she and her then-husband Affleck both strive to be the best parents to their children, despite their fame. “It’s really important for my kids to see that everyone doesn’t have the lives they see in Los Angeles,” she said. “That doesn’t reflect the world. I want them to grow up with the Southern values I had — to look at people when they say hello and to stop and smell the roses. If I could half as good a job as my mom did, I’d be pretty happy.” Even though they have split, the stars still make an effort to spend time together with their three kids. They were spotted taking Violet, Seraphina, and Samuel to church last November and prior to that celebrated Thanksgiving as a family.Violet Affleck (2010), (Jean Baptiste Lacroix/WireImage/Getty Images)
Violet Affleck,14, is the firstborn of actors Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner, both 48. She was born on December 1st, 2004 in Los Angeles. The teen bears a striking resemblance to her mom and now is catching with her in height as well. According to Daily Mail, the two were spotted going into a nail salon for a pamper session earlier this year in March at the Los Angeles' Brentwood neighborhood. They were dressed almost identical, too, in gray tops, jeans, glasses, slippers, and with their hair tied back. Violet had a jacket on while Garner sported a buttoned cardigan.Jennifer Garner, Ben Affleck (2018), (Michael Tran/FilmMagic/Getty Images
