Affleck wears the black cape in his forthcoming flick Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but are his three children fans of his work?
“Despite the fact that I’m playing Batman now, people would say, ‘Are your kids into it?’ The truth is, [they’re] not,” Affleck explained. “If I was doing the sequel to Frozen, I would be a hero. My two older daughters could give a shit about Batman, and they’ve now passed that affection onto my son. He’s always like, ‘Papa, can I watch Frozen?’ And I’m like, ‘No, dude, it’s not on again!”
To avoid having to watch the Disney movie for the umpteenth time, Affleck decided to get creative and search online for something similar to the film, but far more compressed. Which is when he came across Idina Menzel’s appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon earlier this year, when she belted out Frozen‘s theme song “Let it Go.”
And ever since that moment, Affleck’s son Samuel has a new idol — and it’s not Menzel, or his dad!
“He loves it,” Affleck revealed of the clip. “And he wants me to sing along. I can’t tell my son that I can’t sing. So I just [mumble], and he’s like, ‘No Papa, do it like the man!’ I was like, ‘First of all, I’m your father, OK? Jimmy Fallon’s not the man — I’m the man!”
