Ben Affleck: actor, director and possible Massachusetts senator… Too much!
Ben Affleck wants to enter politics. An important news since Schwarzenegger times
Ben Affleck, what a handsome man! He is 40 years old but we could say he is still 20… and in his prime. In full promotion of his third film: Argo, written, starring and directed by him, Ben Affleck has surprised saying he wants to enter politics, since he is very fond of American democratic system.
Some days ago, Ben Affleck spoke about Congo problems and possible solutions and now he has just said he is tempted to join the US senate from Massachusetts.
Is it a real desire or a trick to appear in newspapers and marketing his film? Maybe the second, since he has added that he should ask his family firstly.
Ok ok! Then, you express your wishes to the press before consulting your wife (she is Jennifer Garner)! We don’t believe anything. We are sure you have already spoken with her
Anyway, always it’s marvelous to see you on TV. If we are going to see you more being a senator, we support your idea. You wouldn’t be the first actor who entered politics and they have usually a great success.
We wish you the best in your future projects (whatever they are) and above all, merry Christmas!
