This February 22, 2015 file photo shows Ben Affleck as he presents an award on stage at the 87th Oscars in Hollywood, California. Ben Affleck says he was "embarrassed" upon learning he had slaveholding ancestors, and regrets asking US television producers to censor that fact from a program about his family's past. Affleck was featured late last year in the television program "Finding Your Roots," a nationally broadcast program that profiles the family histories of well-known Americans.The actor -- known as an ardent supporter of liberal causes -- was dismayed to learn that in addition to a forbear who was a Revolutionary War hero, he also had a long-ago relative who was a slavemaster.
