Ben Affleck finally feels 'grown up'

Ben Affleck says turning 40 has made him feel like an adult, despite close pal Morgan Freeman telling him he's still young.

Ben Affleck finally feels like a ''grown up'' after turning 40.
The 'Argo' actor-and-director is so contented with his wife Jennifer Garner and their children - Violet, six, Seraphina, three, and seven-month-old Samuel - that he isn't worried about getting older, especially since close friend Morgan Freeman, 75, thinks he is still young.
Ben told the Daily Mirror newspaper: ''I'm lucky. I've got a good life. I've got three kids, I've been married for seven years, I just turned 40 and I finally feel, for better or for worse, like a grown up.
''I was talking to Morgan Freeman and I said, 'I'm turning 40', and he said, 'Boy, you're just coming into your prime.' I feel if Morgan said it, it's probably true.''
The Hollywood star now lives near his close friend Matt Damon in the Pacific Palisades district in Los Angeles and the pair - who broke into showbusiness together and co-wrote the Oscar-winning 'Good Will Hunting' - like to organise play dates for their kids.
He said: ''Matt lives down the street from me so I see him every day. We bring the kids back and forth and it's like fantasy-ville. We have a lot of friends who don't work in the movie business, thank God, otherwise the conversations would get very boring.''
Despite shunning the limelight, he loves being married to fellow A-lister Jennifer and would love to direct her in a future film since he thinks she is a phenomenal actress.
Ben gushed: ''I'd work with her in a second. If I found a movie with a strong female lead, I would love to direct her in it. She's a colossal talent and an extraordinary woman.''
