Ben Affleck will make you remember your crush


Here are the new photos of the photocall for The Town, in Venice today. Confession: I think CB is a little mad at me, I really do. Earlier, I took the new photos of Ben Affleck, Jeremy Renner and Rebecca Hall and wrote about them. CB didn’t say anything, but I know how much she loves Ben Affleck. In my defense, there were new Affleck photos a few days ago, and I suggested that she write about them, and she didn’t! So here we are, looking at yet another set of new photos starring CB’s beloved, Mr. Affleck. I remember when I was in lust with Affleck as well – it was pre-gambling, post-Gwyneth. Circa 2001, I believe. He was only starting to go off the rails then. I really was hot for him… and these photos are reminding me of my crush, big time. Ben has been looking really good lately – he’s lost some weight, his clothes have improved, and the sparkle is back in his eye. Is that sparkle because his wife’s not around? Who can say. But who can pay attention to The Affleck when The Hamm is around?


Is this not one of the funniest photos you’ve ever seen? God, he’s handsome, and he’s hilarious. Bless his heart.

Now I can’t tell if Ben is checking out Rebecca Hall’s shoes or her boobs in this photo. All I know is that CB is getting her shank ready.


But Rebecca wisely spends most of her time flirting with The Hamm. Good girl. Also: Rebecca has horrible style, correct?



My Beloved Hamm, solo.


And finally, my little cutie Jeremy Renner. I wish he would rethink the dirt-lip/dirt-chin. He looks like he needs a bath.

    Why is Hamm staring at her/Rebecca, the way I’m staring at him?

  2. Julie says:

    LOL Jeremy Renner looks like some sort of weasel/hobbit hybrid creature.

  3. LOVE ANGELINA says:

    OMG Ben Affleck when did you start looking good again? My weakness is a man in a well tailored suit. Dayum baby looks good.

    LOL yes Rebbecca Hall looks a hawt mess. I hope the girl brings me some glam at the red carpet event later.

    Uhhh I still don’t find The Hamm attractive but I am enjoying Mad Men. I soooo thought Don and Peggy were gonna sleep together. Phew thank goodness that didn’t happen but I couldn’t for the life of me figure out why she abandoned her adorable bf on her birthday.

  4. Fluffy Kitten Tail says:

    Affleck will make me remember what crush? On him? NEVER! Never have liked him.

  5. Katie says:

    I like Hall’s shoes, hate the dress.

    Love the Hamm. I also have some residual affection for Affleck. Sometimes I look at him and can’t believe I ever thought he was hot. But then I reading about him in EW and there was a still from Reindeer Games and he looked very sexy in it. Also, I really liked Gone Baby Gone and have high hopes for The Town.

    Renner should clean up the facial hair.

  6. Cam says:

    Oh yes, he’s hot. Thank you for reminding us, Affleck.

    Btw, Rebecca’s dress is… just horrendous.

  7. normade says:

    God she needs a stylist asap!!!

  8. normade says:

    I know I just posted but I can’t get over those shoes with that dress…so fug!!!

  9. Gwen says:

    What’s with The Hamm’s hands?

  10. Julie says:

    @Gwen – egads! Now I can’t unsee whatever that is. D:

  11. Mari says:

    Ben is cute, but looks too much like my older brother (in the literal sense) to be attracted to him.
    He was cuter in Pearl Harbor than anything, IMO.
    Still don’t get the hulabaloo about the Hamm…still open to it though. Somone please explain!

  12. LisaT says:

    Gwen, in his latest interview to RS, Jon said that he has a vitiligo.

  13. Kaiser says:

    Re: The Hamm’s hands.

    I just read the Rolling Stone piece on Mad Men, and The Hamm said that he’d developed stress-related vitiligo, a skin rash thing. It’s because of the stress of playing Don Draper!

    Edit: LisaT, jinx.

  14. Jacinda says:

    Oh stop making things up!.He’s happily married .Ben was clowning around with the whole cast making them laugh. Why don’t post those pics.So what if he flirts with Rebbecca .He flirts with everyone including men.So doesn’t mean a thing

    I heard only great things about The Town Hopefully this leads to an Oscar.

  15. Gwen says:

    Thanks Lisa and Kaiser. I haven’t heard that before. Poor guy!

  16. denise says:

    I thought the dress and shoes were bad, and they are but the bracelets 🙁
    they look like the rings that you throw on a ring toss toy.

  17. Kitten says:

    Wow, The Hamm’s hands….craziness.

    Affleck looks good. Rebecca Hall looks like a giant compared to Hamm. I know she has heels on but this is further proof that Le Hamm is on the short side.

    Cannot wait for The Town. C-town, baby!!!!!!!

  18. Rene says:

    I love Ben. I’ve never seen Mad Men so I don’t have much of an attraction to John Hamm but he is cute.

    Why do everyone think so negatively about Ben? All I read or hear is he is so and so but there is no proof to back any of these claims up. Nothing.

    The same with Brad & Angie and countless other Hollywood couples. And although I don’t like Gwyneth, where is the evidence showing that Chris is as bad as you all say he is?

    Not saying Ben’s innocent. But these people are celebrities, there will always be people saying they are this or that, however, that does not mean it is true.

    In reality, you are lucky if 2% of what’s said is the truth so why are you all so ready to believe the few who have nothing but their word than to give people the benefit of a doubt.

    It is like people are allergic to seeing the good in a person so we go out of our way to believe the negative when their is nothing tangible to support those claims. Sad world we live in.

  19. Whatever says:

    I agree there is nothing substantial to back up the claims that he is a dirty rotten whore like Jesse James or Tiger, but I’ve read it so much that he is beginning to repel me. I’ll feel bad if it all turns out to be nothing but photo assumption.

  20. CiCi says:

    i love ben affleck then and now – he’s a gorgeous man and seems down to earth and true to his roots. LOVE HIM. i hope he becomes a sought after director. he’s on the right track. can’t wait to see this movie.

  21. Celebitchy says:

    I do love BA but I’m not mad atcha Kaiser! I don’t know what to say about the guy lately except he’s looking good. I also think he looks miserable in photos with Jen but is way too flirty with other women and you really called it.

  22. Gwen says:

    Sorry Julie 🙁 Just hadn’t noticed it before.

    I like Ben quite a bit – he’s a good actor and I think he’ll be a great director too. I do think he’s got relationship issues though. I never really got him and Garner as a couple actually.

  23. a says:

    rebecca looks like a budget liv tyler…

  24. a says:

    @gwen: looks like the hamm may have some faint vitiligo on his hands. my fella has it and they’re about the same skin tone. it shows more if he gets a little more tan (whereas the vitiligo skin does not).

    nothing big to worry about!

  25. hmm says:

    Ben Affleck is one smarmy dude. He oozes cheese.

  26. locagirl says:

    HOT. All of the above men. Ben Affleck is STILL my ultimate celebrity hottie. What a babe.

  27. Crash2GO2 says:

    Haha! I love how the Hamm is hamming it up!

    I hope his vitiligo clears up – I had a touch of that on my forehead during a very stressful time in my life, but it did eventually go away.

    @hmm: Yes, you nailed it! He has always grossed me out the door. An obsenity thrown into every sentence he utters, the snarky face he makes when he talks… I could go on and on.

  28. latam says:

    i don’t get the fuss with “the hamm” hes looks pretty ugly next to affleck in these photos and im not even a huge fan of affleck.

  29. lucy2 says:

    I’ve never really found him all that attractive. Back in the Gwenyth days he was occasionally cute, but then the whole JLo debacle happened and I found him very smarmy (good call hmm). However, he seems like a nice enough guy these days, his family is adorable, and I think he’s a good director. The Town looks very good, I’m looking forward to it. Though…it kind of looks like Ben visited the Hair Club for Men or something. There’s some sort of oddness happening along the forehead.
    It took me a little while to appreciate the Hamm, but then it was like BAMM! That Hamm is a handsome man!

  30. Confuzzle says:

    Every time I see that Hammy dude I remember his dumb character on 30 Rock, and then I have NFI why women are squeeing over him. Fug and stupid 😀

    And his hairline is rising all the time.

  31. whitedaisy says:

    Vitiligo is the loss of melanin or pigment in the skin.
    It is not contagious or a rash; it is genetic and will likely continue to spread although how quickly is very individualized.
    I have had it for 15 years and only have about as much as Hamm on my hands also. My mother and grandfather had it as well.
    You can undergo photo-therapy to get it to re-pigment with varying degrees of success and need to maintain the lightbox exposure a few times every week to keep it pigmented.

  32. jzhz says:

    I think these are my favorite photos of
    The Hamm. He looks so natural and un-Don Asshole Draper-like. What a handsome feller.

  33. starbuck says:

    Nah Hamm’s not short, Rebecca is 5’10 and wearing monster platforms. She’s got bad taste in clothes, but she’s lovely.

  34. El Predicto says:

    He’s obviously HAMM HANDED!

  35. Darlene says:

    I have a soft spot for Ben because of his gorgeous wife and beautiful kids. I suspect he gets a bad rap from the tabloids due to the huge amounts of money they lost and continue to lose after he put an end to his obnoxious behavior during his and JLo’s *Bennifer* era.

    They are forever lying about him and trying to portray him as some kind of absentee father and unfit (uncaring bored husband and family man now that he tries to live a quiet low-key lifestyle away from the glare of the spotlight, as a serious minded artist rather than the buffon he used to be.

    Somehow, boring guys like him don’t make for good gossip and I guess Ben will not be given a second chance (unlike like the Robert Downey, Jrs & etc) out there. Any dirt concerning him has to be fabricated and the public loves to believe everything negative they read about all celebrities. Gossip sites are just as bad or worse than tabloids these days and also make up crap to get hits.

    I’m glad to see Ben back and during a great job at his new found success and can’t wait to see the movie.

    I will be shocked it my comment is posted.

  36. Tazina says:

    Ben is looking hot. Now let’s see Jen do something with her appearance. She looks gorgeous when she glams up….but ya, she does have two kids to chase around but still…..

  37. Bee says:

    How dare anyone not find The Hamm attractive! No, I’m just kidding, not everyone has to love Jon as much as I and others do. That man is smoking hot on Mad Men. For proof watch:
    His character’s been in a bit of a freefall this season. But, if you go back and watch earlier seasons the character was sex personified. Also, Rebecca Hall get thee to a stylist quickly. Somewhere in LA Rachel Zoe is not eating and remaining childless just so she can dress you.

  38. Stronzilla says:

    Both Hamm and Affleck seem to be making fun of Hall’s attempts to tower over them in those hideous shoes. The platform is a bit overkill. At least Renner was smart enough not to get photographed beside her

    Didn’t Gwyneth say after breaking up with Ben’s that his ideal woman was a stripper with a beer in each hand? 🙂

  39. scotchy says:

    @stronzilla, that is exactly what i thought.

  40. Roxanne75 says:

    Hate the shoes. Love Ben Affleck…YUM-He looks so super handsome.

  41. Tia C says:

    I’m the oddball as usual, I don’t find any of these men remotely attractive. Jeremy Renner is a good actor though.
