Hollywood has taken a toll of my sons: Afflecks' father

Thursday, February 08, 2018

Father of actors Ben and Casey Affleck, Timothy has criticised the culture of Hollywood for ruining the lives of his sons.

Calling the film industry a "disgusting place", Timothy said he believes the showbiz also contributed to his elder son's alcoholism.

"It has taken a toll on both of my sons. Hollywood is a disgusting place. I think that's been a major factor in Ben's drinking.

"You're kind of forced to develop a persona that is hard to shed and go home to your family. It affects your whole life. I think that's one of the dangers of the film industry," Timothy told Grazia magazine.

The 74-year-old also went on to take the onus of Ben's drinking problem on him as he was a long time "chronic, severe alcoholic" in the past.

"I had to recover and, happily, I did. Ben has always been serious about getting sober. There is no question about that. He wants a balanced life and he is working at it," he added.

"It's difficult to balance family life in the midst of global stardom. It's a hard, taxing life."
