Let It Go: Gone Girl Star Ben Affleck's Children Prefer Frozen to Batman
Oscar winner Ben Affleck can act, write, direct, and has one of the most treasured marriages in all of Hollywood, but there's one thing this Renaissance man hasn't been able to pull off yet: singing "Let It Go" from Frozen. Hold on, we'll let him explain. The Gone Girl star stopped by The Tonight Show on Monday and shared a very funny anecdote about how his three young children are obsessed with the Disney movie, and so much so that not even his new title as Batman has made much of a difference in the Affleck-Garner household. "If I was doing a sequel to Frozen, I would be a hero," joked the actor, who looked as dapper as ever.
Affleck went on to describe the peril that so many parents have had to endure: watching Frozen for the zillionth time. Wanting to find a more condensed version of the film to show his young son, Affleck stumbled upon host Jimmy Fallon's classroom instrument rendition of "Let It Go" with Idina Menzel and The Roots. "He loved it, he went crazy for it," Affleck said of his son's reaction to the clip. Only, his plan backfired when his son requested that he sing along like "the man" does. "The man," of course, being Jimmy Fallon.
