The Batman and Daredevil actor Ben Affleck finally clarified about his alleged slip in trying to recover from his alcohol addiction (which was caught on a video) to a paparazzi during one of his visits to his former wife’s house, Jennifer Garner.
Affleck, 47, can be seen in the video wearing a black suit and a mask, trying to regain his balance by leaning on an SUV just after he left the UNICEF Halloween Masquerade Ball that he attended. The actor then admitted to one of the paparazzi during his visit to Garner that it was a slip and further noted that such stuff happens and that he won’t let it derail him. He even thanked the paparazzi after but did not try to answer the rest of their questions.
At present, the Argo director is recovering from the events that happened, however, some of his friends who empathized with him explained that whatever Affleck is going through to combat his alcohol addiction is extremely difficult and it is a good thing that the 47-year-old actor and director was honest enough to admit his fault.
Furthermore, the actor’s slip-up happened just a few hours after he published a tweet wherein he can be seen confirming that he was dating again after being caught having an account in some dating app. He followed up another tweet where he was being serious and is trying to encourage his fans to help and donate to The Midnight Mission in order to help other people that are also struggling with addiction.
Further, he remarked that he is making a donation that day because he knows that there are people who bravely fight addiction but do not have the resources to do so.- Advertisement -
Affleck once completed a forty-day stay in a treatment center back in October 2018 where he stated that fighting addiction is going to be a life-long battle and requires a full-time commitment and that he was fighting for himself and for his family.
Ben Affleck and the Elektra star Garner, 47, divorced back in 2015 while Affleck went back to rehab. They have three children, Violet, Seraphina, and Samuel. Recently, Jennifer Garner mentioned that she wouldn’t let their kids join Instagram as it can teach teenagers nothing good.
