Ben Affleck will not be outdone with his 14 year old daughter, Violet! While promoting his new movie The Way Back during a visit to the Kelly Clarkson Show, Affleck revealed that he had a friendly competition with his older daughter due to his strong skills in Spanish.
The Oscar winner explained that he spoke Spanish “passively” after picking up parts of the language as a teenager while working on a television show filmed in Mexico. During his career, he has also been known for conducting bilingual interviews during press junkets for his films. But now Violet is about to let it go in Spanish, and he can’t let that happen.
“She has always been a very good student, and she is interested in Spanish, so I would help her often,” said Affleck. “Now, all of a sudden, she entered the class where she is, like, in the most difficult Spanish lessons and she is getting better. She’s right to the point where I think she could overtake me. “Ben Affleck Is Taking Spanish Classes Because He Can’t Handle His 14-Year-Old Daughter Speaking The Language Better Than Him
The 47-year-old said that Violet now criticizes his Spanish and tells him that he “looks ridiculous” when he is not using the appropriate time.
“I was like, ‘No. That doesn’t happen, ” joked Affleck. “I don’t mind that I can’t do your math homework when you’re 14, but you’re not going to be better at Spanish than me.” So I decided now that I should take classes; I have to do something to follow. ”
