Ben Affleck has declared he never wants to star in a high-action movie ever again.

Affleck, former fiance of Jennifer Lopez, has branched out into comedy with his latest movie Surviving Christmas, and he insists he has no desire to revisit the tough-guy persona he adapted for roles in such films as ARMAGEDDON and PAYCHECK.

He says, "I don't want to hold a gun in a movie or blow anything up ever again. I'm bored of those other kinds of movies.

"There's some irony to the fact that I want to do comedies and all these actors who already do comedies keep asking, 'When am I going to get to do my big serious thing?'"
