Happy birthday Ben Affleck! The filmmaker's 42nd birthday is today, and the Boston-bred boy has been appearing onscreen since he was a kid (check out his first TV appearance at 12!). Even though the Oscar winner has mainly been behind the camera as director over the past few years, we have a ton of photos here to show how sweet it is when Affleck does appear on film. Affleck tends to look smoking hot in his roles, especially as the years have gone by. Check him out as you wish him a happy, happy birthday.
