Ben Affleck shares his thoughts on 'Sad Affleck' meme and 'the difficult part' of his kids seeing the internet

Yes, Ben Affleck knows all about the Sad Affleck meme. It's been around for almost six years now and he even finds it "funny" — for the most part. In an interview published on Friday by the Los Angeles Times, the Oscar winner said he doesn't care what people think about him anymore unless those people are his kids. "I think when I was young, people saw me as somebody who had too much or was successful too easily or looked like some kind of cavalier, insincere, callow frat guy. That was nothing like how I felt. I felt like this sort of insecure, anxious, overly verbal kid from Boston who had tried to break into this business and was dealing with his own stuff. But there is an interesting thing about how we come off versus who we are," Affleck explained.
