Hollywood superstar Ben Affleck was nagged to quit smoking on the set of JERSEY GIRL - by his seven-year-old screen daughter Raquel Castro.

Affleck's nicotine habit greatly annoyed his diminutive co-star, and she had no problem with telling him just how she felt.

She says, "I said (to him) not to do that because in school I learned that you might get chemical dependency.

"I usually tell my dad that too. If you live with him, you go in the bathroom and it stinks.

"I also learned if I breathe it in I'll get second-smoking. It's like almost the same thing as (smoking) so please, if you have to do it, do it outside!"
