Ben Affleck recently debuted a youthful transformation by shaving off his distinguished salt-and-pepper beard. 

This change had the actor looking remarkably younger, a notable shift that caught the attention of many as he engaged in fatherly duties with his 12-year-old son, Samuel.

On a sunny Thursday afternoon, Ben was seen embracing his role as a devoted dad, basketball in hand, while Samuel trailed behind with his wheeled backpack.

The duo was attending Samuel's basketball game, an event that also saw the presence of Ben's ex-wife, Jennifer Garner.
