After the singer, 39, admitted her two children have a tendency to ‘clam up’ when meeting celebrities, the Oscar winner launched into a story about when his girls were so starstruck by the pop star they went silent.
‘We came all the way here, it’s Taylor Swift, say something!’ he remembered telling his kids, who were six and nine, at the time, as they stared at Swift in complete awe.
Similarly, Clarkson reminisced about when her children, who love Aquaman and are ‘loudest kids on the planet,’ would ‘not speak’ to Jason Momoa.
While this was the first time Affleck spoke about the meet and greet with Swift publicly, a source confirmed to E! News they all met six years ago.
Affleck and his two eldest children, who he shares with ex-wife Jennifer Garner, brought Seraphina, 12, and Violet, 16, to Swift’s 1989 World Tour in 2015 at the Crypto.com Arena, originally known as Staples Center.
‘They all had a great time,’ the insider said of the backstage meeting. ‘This was something they really wanted to do. The girls had been begging to go.’

Additionally, Affleck was said to have been ‘so excited for them.’
It was definitely a night to remember as Selena Gomez, Justin Timberlake and Lisa Kudrow all took to the stage to respectively sing with Swift.
In 2017, during an appearance on The Ellen Show, Affleck said ‘Taylor Swift is great’ and ‘a great role model.’
