Ben Affleck keeps guns to protect his family

Washington: Ben Affleck has revealed that he keeps multiple weapons at his 17.5-million-dollar Pacific Palisades mansion to protect his family after actress wife Jennifer Garner was continuously harassed by a crazy stalker in 2009.

The 40-year-old ‘Argo’ star has three young children- Violet, Seraphina, and baby Samuel- with the ‘Butter’ actress.

“The stalker had been to our house many times and ultimately came to my children’s school and was arrested,” Contactmusic quoted Affleck as telling the Hollywood Reporter.

“There’s a lot of crazy, weird people out there. It’s an ugly world. (It) gave me a stronger sense of feeling protective about my family,” he added.

However, the ‘Pearl Harbour’ star is not the only one who keeps guns, as actor Brad Pitt had also previously confessed that he doesn’t feel safe without a gun nearby to keep his wife Angelina Jolie and their six young children safe.
