Ben Affleck, Violet Affleck


Ben Affleck can probably afford a dozen donuts from on his own, but thanks to Violet, there was no charge at Krispy Kreme!

On Thurs, Sept. 19, Jennifer Garner and Ben's 7-year-old daughter was all decked out for Talk Like a Pirate Day. So, naturally, dad and Violet dropped by a Kripsy Kreme location in Santa Monica, Calif., to redeem their 12 free Original Glazed donuts.

While Ben, 41, looked handsome enough in jeans, a button-down and aviator shades, it was his little girl's ensemble that belonged on every best dressed list ever! Violet wore a red-and-white striped vest (with a skull and crossbones!) over her sweet pink dress. She even upped the ante with a pirate's hat and an eye patch.

And while this young lady clearly appreciates a good costume and definitely inherited her parents' good looks, Ben would rather not see her, 4-year-old Seraphina or 1-year-old Samuel making a career in showbiz. "I would do whatever I could to discourage that," he told E! News in January. "My kids have enough issues of being exposed in ways that I don't want them to be exposed, in magazines and shows and stuff."

But should an Affleck child get bitten by the acting bug, there's still hope. "You know, if you're interested in drama," Ben said, "there's great theater classes and stuff and that's what's appropriate."

Wise words from a loving father!
