Where did Ben Affleck  get that shiner?!? The actor was reportedly leaving a party in Brentwood, Calif. with wife Jennifer Garner and daughter Violet on Thursday when cameras snapped a few pics of his black eye!

The Massachusetts native — who’s first big role was as a scrappy Boston local in Good Will Hunting — has been known to be a little sharp, particularly when it comes to the paparazzi and his children. 

Back in 2009, Ben was very stern towards a photographer who was filming him and his daughter getting into a car together. “You can talk to me. Don’t talk to my kid,” he told the paparazzo. 

Prior to hanging out with a bruised Ben, Jennifer and Violet were seen hitting up the Santa Monica Public Library earlier this week. Jennifer was dressed in a LBD, while little Violet was in head-to-toe pink. The five-year-old held onto her mother’s hand while carrying a Flat Stanley book in her mouth!
