Fun day: Ben Affleck, 45, was with his three children daughters Violet, 12, Seraphina, nine, and son Sam, six – and his father Timothy in NYC Friday
The Gone Girl actor, who’s currently in a relationship with Saturday Night Live producer Lindsay Shookus, 38, sported a graying goatee.
Timothy wore a navy blue vest over a green button-up top with navy blue slacks and black shoes.
The family seemed delighted to come across a luxe Sprinkles cupcake ATM, with each purchasing their own sweet treat to-go.
Timothy made headlines earlier this year in speaking out against the culture of Hollywood – calling it ‘a disgusting place’ that ‘has taken a toll on both of [his] sons’ Ben and Casey, as they’ve each dealt with controversies in recent years.

‘I think that’s been a major factor in Ben’s drinking,’ he told Grazia in February. ‘You’re kind of forced to develop a persona that is hard to shed and go home to your family.
‘It affects your whole life. I think that’s one of the dangers of the film industry.’
Ben and Casey found themselves in the eye of controversy amid the #MeToo movement that kick-started last fall.
Casey withdrew from presenting the Best Actress Oscar last spring amid residual controversy from a 2010 lawsuit he settled accusing him of sexual harassment during production of the movie I’m Still Here.

Ben apologized last October over a clip in which he groped actress Hilarie Burton in 2003 on MTV’s TRL; the actress later said via Twitter she ‘didn’t forget’ about it in the 14 years that had passed.
Both had splits from their longtime partners two years ago, as Casey parted ways with Summer Phoenix, as Ben and Garner separated that same year.
Timothy defended the Oscar-winning sons as ‘both kind and good men’ who ‘treat women well,’ adding, ‘I can guarantee that. After 40 odd years, you know your kids.’
He added: ‘Both of my sons are hard workers. They have a tremendous amount of empathy, they don’t forget where they came from, they’re very kind and generous. Those are the qualities that I value.’
