When it comes to fatherhood, Ben Affleck, 35, says he has the same fears as anyone else — fears that he’s turning into his own father, or that his 2 ½-year-old daughter Violet Anne will inherit the less desirable parts of his personality that he wishes she wouldn’t. While "we all like to see ourselves as good dads," Ben recently said, "the key is optimism."

Fortunately, it’s easy to be optimistic while being a dad to Violet and a husband to Violet’s mom, actress Jennifer Garner. Ben said the mother-daughter duo have only changed his life for the better.

Violet is the first child for the couple, who married in 2005.
