Ben Affleck is shedding light on the power of Taylor Swift.
During his recent appearance on The Kelly Clarkson Show, the actor revealed that Swift’s presence was enough to make his two daughters — Violet, 16, and Seraphina, 12, whom he shares with ex-wife Jennifer Garner — go speechless when they met her.
Speaking of the time her children met Aquaman, played by Jason Momoa, Clarkson said, “My kids, like the loudest kids on the planet, will not speak, and I’m like ‘What’s happening to you right now?'”
“I took my daughters to meet Taylor Swift and they’re…” Affleck chimed in, mimicking his daughters awestruck facial expressions. “I was like, ‘What are you talking about? We came all the way here, it’s Taylor Swift, say something!'” He later recalled telling the singer, “I’m telling you, they’re fans.”
“You look like a liar. You’re like, ‘I swear they know your songs,'” Clarkson added, laughing with Affleck.
Affleck spoke kindly of Swift in 2017 during an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, saying, “Taylor Swift is great, by the way. She’s a great role model.” Later in the program, the actor was tasked with naming three Taylor Swift songs in under five seconds during a game of Five Second Rule but fumbled. “‘1989,’ ‘I Still Love You,’ the John Mayer thing … come on! She’s amazing,” Affleck replied. “I love Taylor Swift. I’m blanking.”
