Ben Affleck was born on August 15th, 1972 in Berkeley, California. When Affleck was very young his family relocated to the Boston area. This is where he broke into acting. His enormous success in Oscar winning movie ''Shakespeare in Love'' starring Gwyneth Paltrow and the block buster hit ''Armegedon'' (1998), like other stars, he also featured prominently in rumor news. However, he realized that with fame and fortune tabloid headlines will definitely follow.
Ben Affleck is a Water Rat. Rat is first sign of the Chinese zodiac; so, it fittingly represents (initiating) action. People depend on him to get things moving, there is constant mental activity surrounding him. Most often he is devising a scheme to earn the most money with the least amount of work. However, if the Rat becomes too cocky and overconfident in its ability to get out of tight spots, the Rat may find itself in hole that no amount of smarts and charm will be able to help it climb out of. Speaking of the element, Water is a gentle element, and Water people are most at home using an indirect approach to achieve their goals. The emotional Water person is very sensitive to other people and their needs. Maybe this kind of sensitivity helps Affleck to feel all the traits and characteristics of each of his movie characters. Affleck will probably not try to overwhelm with force but, rather, will wear down opposition with persistence.
