Ben Affleck doesn't want his kids to act before they are 18.

The 44-year-old hunk - who has Violet, 11, Seraphina, eight, and Samuel, five, with estranged wife Jennifer Garner - was just seven years old when he began his own career and though he has no regrets about the past, he wouldn't want his brood to experience the "downside" of fame until they are old enough to make their own decisions.

Speaking during a Q&A at the AutFest International Film Festival in California on Sunday (04.23.17), he said: "I think it's a hard thing. I love being an actor, I got into it as a child and I wouldn't change that. But I also wouldn't want to take my kids and push them out there before they were 18.

A source told 'Entertainment Tonight': "Everything today couldn't have been done more amicably. The divorce filing was only a matter of time. Ben and Jen are both still 100 percent committed to co-parenting their children and making sure their family situation works for them all. You can't have anything better than that."

Mary J. Blige felt alone in her relationship with her estranged husband.

The 46-year-old powerhouse filed for a divorce with Martin 'Kendu' Isaacs - who is also her manager - last year after 12 years of marriage because she could "sense" her partner didn't want her anymore, and she was left "suffering" by herself.

Speaking about her romance to radio show host Angie Martinez on Power 105.1, the 'No More Drama' hitmaker said: "I can sense that I'm not what you want anymore.

"You start to realise that this man doesn't want you and he's just gone all the time and you're by yourself in the relationship. When you realise you're by yourself and you're just suffering through it, now it's time to do some investigating.
