Affleck's Mum Believes What She Reads

BEN AFFLECK is desperately trying to persuade his mother to stop believing everything she reads about her movie star son. Affleck hates calls from his mother after she has read a piece about him in the tabloid press because she always believes them. He says, "She says, `Why are you dating that BRITNEY SPEAR (corr)? She's too young for you and she's dating that nice boy from 98 BACKSTREET.'" (KL/WNV/MCM)
