Hard to believe, but Ben Affleck hits his milestone 40th birthday today. What’s not hard to believe is that he’s kept both his charming good looks and his down-to-earth attitude along the way.
It doesn’t seem that long ago that he and best bud Matt Damon were wowing audiences with both their acting and writing talent in their Oscar-winning collaboration, Good Will Hunting. Since then, he’s been a fixture on movie screens in everything from superhero fantasies to thrillers to Elizabethan comedies (I still think his Ned in Shakespeare in Love is one of the best performances he’s ever done). He also became the subject of many cover lines during his relationship with Jennifer Lopez.
But his finest role by far – as he’d be the first to tell you – is as doting husband to Jennifer Garner and loving dad to Violet, Seraphina and baby Samuel, born just this spring. He never looks happier than when he’s with his family. He’s even said he wouldn’t mind another child – though Jen thinks differently!
Here are some of his classic looks from the last 10 years. Scruffy or polished, casual or formal, he’s tops on any list!
