A wigged-out Ben Affleck totes 2 ½-year-old daughter Violet Anne on the set of his new film, Extract, on Saturday in Los Angeles. In the comedy, Ben portrays a lawyer alongside Jason Bateman, playing a flower-extract factory owner who is dealing with a string of bad luck, both at work and at home.

Ben, 36, and wife Jennifer Garner expect their second child this winter.

Violet wears New Balance Kids KV 992 ($49).

Oh my heavens!! I would never have known that this was Ben Affleck in the picture, unless I had read the headline!! haha He looks so different! Violet is adorable as always. I love how she is always dressed so comfortably, but still cute. Love this family!

Nanny-Emma on

Violet is my fave celeb kid. She’s so cute!

brooke on

she looks just like jen, and is getting so tall.

Ha ha, I only caught part of the headline before looking at the picture, and I assumed, having seen a long-haired man and a child named Violet, that this was Dave Grohl and his daughter, and I thought to myself how much Violet’s hair had grown! Then I realised it was Ben Affleck. That was a surreal moment lol. I gotta say, if Dave Grohl and John Frusciante (Chili Peppers) had a baby, Ben Affleck would be it! Loving Violet, she’s adorable!

Violet seems puzzled by Ben’s new look.

cute as always on

such a cute picture🙂
Violet is my favorite celeb-baby for sure.

and I would love to know what kind of jeans violet is wearing as well.

I really don’t get the obsession with clothes that celebrity kids wear. These jeans look like regular jeans that you could get just about anywhere. I have seen some just like it at Walmart, Target, or kids clothing boutiques. What is it about these jeans in particular that seems so special? I think people sometimes put these celebrity clothes on a pedestal, thinking that they are so great, and there’s the feeling of “I need that item!” And the irony is that often the clothes that celebrities buy are way too expensive for the ordinary person! I’m not being sarcastic, just my honest observation!

Valerie on

It’s so nice to see a picture of Ben with his daughter. Is that a wig or his real hair? I think this new look is great for him!

Marilyn on

She doesn’t look too sure of her dad and how he looks.

Roni on

Jane, if I think the jeans are cute and someone knows where they come from I don’t see how you are to say what is expensive or not. To each his own. I come here for celebrity baby info, and that is what I take from it.

Jane on

Roni- The jeans just seem generic to me. I don’t see how it would be possible to find out the brand. And I personally don’t see the need since they look like jeans in a lot of stores! Maybe I could understand more if the item was very unique.. even then, it seems like the very unique items are often very expensive- at least expensive by my definition.

Roni on

I have been having a super hard time finding a dark wash denim that is not really flared or really skinny at the bottom as a matter of fact. The jeans remind me of childrens place but it’s hard to tell. They are exactly what I am looking for and so I asked the question. Is it really for you to judge what I like or not? Maybe you should just worry about your own issues.

Roni on

When you see that photo in hq you can definitely see a label on the back. You just can’t see it from the picture shown.

I also like Vi’s jeans. I love the way they dress her in practical and comfortable yet cute clothes. She is so adorable. She will grow up like must kids despite the fact that her parents are celebs. The Afflecks seems just like ordinary folks. Love them.

For the record, I prefer Ben with shorter hair. lol

Bancie1031 on

I don’t think that there from The Children’s Place, the tag doesn’t look like their tag. I like these pants also. Maybe from GAP?

Roni on

If you like the jeans, whisper quietly lol.

m-dot on

Violet actually looks like daddy a little in this pic!

Jane, I understand what you mean. Nothing against anyone interested in finding out where to get celeb baby clothes…

But I personally think celeb kids are the worst dressed kids ever! LOL Despite being expensive, they often look really cheap and cheesy.

I like when babies are dressed with style, like little Kingston Rossdale. You can tell they put time into selecting his clothing. Violet and many other celeb babies look way too Plain Jane for my taste.

SMC on

Jane, I totally agree with you! I don’t really get it either, lol.

Bancie1031 on

OK I just have to state the obvious here …. WOW does Ben look different or what??? …… Even Violet looks like she’s not quite sure LOL.

Rosy J on

I prefer kids and children to dress in practical clothes. I have never cared for trendy and/or so called stylish clothes for the little ones. To much emphasis is placed on material things and less on their character. The ones whose parents maybe cant’t afford designer duds are made fun of and to feel inferior to the “cool” kids.

I won’t drop the names of kids whose parents fit this mold unlike some people.

SweetDiva on

My mom grew up with an outhouse in her backyard, went to a 3 room schoolhouse until the 8th grade in rural North Carolina. So when she had her daugher, it made her feel very proud that her baby could have some designer duds. Shoot, it made her feel good that her baby could have clothes that no one had worn before. Sometimes when people come from humble beginnings they want to give their children what they didn’t have. If you can afford it, why shouldn’t you give your children nicer things?

Lauren on

As far as the implication that Jen and Ben don’t go out of their way to dress Violet in trendy designer gear, I think some peoples’ perceptions of this family are preventing them from making completely truthful judgments in this case. Yes, they seem very down to earth and normal-one of the most normal families in this site. But anyone who sees pictures of Violet regularly knows that she has been photographed in several expensive name-brand strollers (including a Bugaboo), $300 Juicy Couture coats, a $150 Tocca dress, and C&C California tees (which cost in the $30-40 range for kids her age) among other designer items. I like seeing pics of the Garner-Affleck family as much as the next person, but let’s not be so blinded by them that honesty doesn’t prevail.

Some are acting like it’s a crime for wanting your children to have and wear nice things!
