Ben Affleck has taken his love for the New England Patriots to the next level…and it’s kind of creeping Jennifer Garner out.
While on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Thursday night, the Triple Frontier actor explained to host Jimmy Kimmel that, in order to convince his son Samuel to become a Patriots fan, he had his friends do a little decorating in his room…leaving Garner a little puzzled. The Boston native recalled taking his kids to a Patriots game and explaining to them why the team is so meaningful in their lives.
“We’re really excited because we’re from Boston and this a big deal, and the Red Sox, and I’m giving them the whole history,” Affleck shared.
But after hearing his dad talk about being from Boston, Samuel had to correct him.
“Dad, you’re from Boston, I’m from L.A.,” Samuel told him.
“I had like a full existential crisis,” Affleck recalled. “I failed, I’m a bad father.”
After this incident, Affleck decided to call some of his friends to do some decorating in his son’s room.
“To help him really understand like where he comes from, if not literally, then at least spiritually,” Affleck explained to Kimmel.
The 46-year-old star then shared photos of his son’s room, showing the gigantic football slide that was created. In another photo, we see a chair in the shape of Patriots quarterback Tom Brady‘s head.
“That’s a chair, you sit in that,” Affleck said. “That is Tom Brady…you know, my ex-wife [Garner] thinks it’s creepy.”
“It is creepy,” Kimmel assured Affleck.
