But alas, Ben did not account for delivery delays when ordering his son’s items and needed to display up empty passed.
Luckily for the Good Will Hunting famous person, Samuel is a huge Star Wars fan.
“My son is aware of that I do films which might roughly pretend and his mother [Jennifer Garner] does film, and that is the reason all fake. But he is aware of Star Wars is actual,” the actor instructed host Jimmy Kimmel. “So, I told him that I’m actually in this movie with Kylo Ren and his mind, like, opened in two.”
“And then he goes, ‘But, there is something…well, Adam heard you say it was your son’s birthday and he called your assistant,” Ben recalled. “He got your address and sent some presents and signed a card and a picture of Kylo Ren. And I took those presents and went and…saw my son. Watched him open all his other presents and I said, ‘Sam, my presents didn’t get here on time…but I did get a present from somebody who really wanted to make sure you had a gift.’ And he was like, ‘Who?’ And I was like, ‘Kylo Ren.'”
He added, “It’s a really good lesson in doing those small gestures of kindness because you have no idea.”
