Ben Affleck Admits He's Scared Of His Young Daughters On 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Ben Affleck dropped by "Jimmy Kimmel Live" in support of his new film, "Argo." But he got to talking about his daughters, who are 3 and 6. Apparently, Affleck isn't afraid to admit that he's a little bit scared of his children.

When Kimmel asked Affleck if they did sports, Affleck clarified that it's more of a discipline. "My daughters do karate," he said. "They know that it’s a way of peace and that it’s defensive. And they would never [use their] powers to hurt others. But, if you tango with them, they’ll rip your nuts off!"

If they're that intimidating to their own father at 3 and 6, imagine how tough they're going to be when they're teenagers. It's tough enough to be a father to teenage girls, but adding karate into the mix is going to make the experience even crazier.

Affleck directs and stars in "Argo," a film based on the true story of a CIA operation to rescue six Americans who fled to the home of the Canadian ambassador after the U.S. embassy in Tehran was overrun. The rescue operation was masked by staging a fake movie production. The film opens in theaters on Friday, Oct. 12, and has been receiving rave reviews from critics.

"Jimmy Kimmel Live" airs every weeknight at 12 a.m. ET on ABC.
