Ben Affleck is cheating on Jennifer Garner with a tanning bed

Ben Affleck, seen here in his wife’s baby-tee, likes a good tan. Who can blame him? Despite the epidemic of leather-faced, perpetual tanning-bed victims, there ARE some people who just go into a tanning booth every once in a while for various reasons. Maybe they don’t like tan lines (that’s me!), or maybe they just need a little pick-me-up. Maybe they caught sight of themselves in bad lighting and thought, “Damn, I need some color.” Maybe they looked at John Boehner and thought, “That’s a good look – bright orange! I should try that.” I don’t know WHY Ben Affleck is allegedly using tanning beds. All I know is that I enjoy this story:

Strange but true: Ben Affleck has become a member at Le Beach Club Tanning Resort in Brentwood, California, spending hundreds of dollars at a time on tanning – which is weird since his wife, Jennifer Garner, is an advocate for a Neutrogena skin-health campaign!

“He’s been using the most damaging beds there are,” says a source. “She flipped when she found out!”

Ben Affleck is cheating on his wife with a tanning bed!! I actually have a theory, though, and one that might explain Ben’s actions (but not his wife’s alleged freakout). The theory: Ben is currently filming Runner, Runner in Puerto Rico with Justin Timberlake (I’m including some photos from the set below). It’s possible that his character is supposed to be someone who has been living on the island for a while, maybe? Someone used to beach living? And maybe Ben decided to do some preparation and he got a nice tan before he came to the set. Either that or Ben’s side-piece likes him tan. Either/or.

Photos from the Runner, Runner set. That’s Timberlake in the last two photos. The movie’s about gambling, I think.

    OMG, that is the dumbest costume I’ve ever seen.

    The plot of this film is kinda stupid.

    Plus, I feel totally tricked into looking a pictures of Timber-geek. I never click on a link of his and I feel slightly nauseous now.

  3. Aiobhan says:

    He is shooting a film in puerto Rico and he goes to a tanning salon. Did Puerto Rico float to the Artic circle without my knowledge? As white as he is all he should have been able to do is stand outside for a few moments to get a tan. Weird.

  4. atlantapug says:

    He doesn’t look very tan for a Guy supposedly spending.g tons of money on the super power tanning beds.

    Personally? I’m just relieved that the wiglet is gone and he looks hot again. (Except in that dumb red outfit)

    I knew you wrote this piece, Kaiser. When C/B writes about Afleck/Garner it’s always really sweet but you just HAD to add the part about his “side piece” :)

    I’m sure the fake-bake is for a role. Most of my fellow Bostonians are of Irish descent and *most* turn red not brown when sun-baking.

      Hello
      fellow bean towner and agreed tanning beds are less harsh on fair skin because you can control it.

  6. Theuth says:

    Isn’t it normal for actors/actresses to be a little tanned for filming? Colours on films tends to be different from reality, so the tan is obligatory to look good on camera. Many people with very light skin I know tends to look pasty on camera even if they have a beautiful shade in reality – and a tanning bed sometimes can be a better choice if your skin can’t tolerate sun.

    • Ellen says:

      A tanning bed is never a good idea and even more so if your skin can’t tolerate the sun. If you burn in the real sun, you’ll burn on a tanning bed, simple as. I did a few tanning bed sessions back in the day and will always regret it. I have lots of moles and am always freaked out that I’ve done permanent damage to myself. If you’re feeling pasty, use the fake stuff. It stinks and is messy but better than having a melanoma.

      • Theuth says:

        Good to know, then XD Never used it and I’ve always discouraged people who want to tan because of fashion.
        But maybe tanning beds work better if you need a tan for “work”? And for maintaing it? Plus, you can control the intensity in a bed, so it can be easier…?

  7. francesca1 says:

    that last pic is cracking me up. Is ben affleck giving acting advice to j.t.? They both need to retire from the “art”.

    • I.want.shoes says:

      Yes! Ben is a crappy actor. But I guess he prefers to blame Bennifer for the lack of roles being offered to him.

  8. Hautie says:

    Oh, how I miss the days of Affleck dating Lopez.

    When she had him groomed within a inch of his life. Completely metro-sexual with a incredible tan. He was gorgeous.

    Affleck has not look that great, since then. But I always assumed his tan was a spray on tan during that time period.

  9. nunya beeswax says:

    I already had the joke “Orange you glad to see me” running across my mind as I read the title. But I must say, Ben Affleck looks good with a little color. I hope he’s not doing it too often tho. :\

  10. lamamu says:

    Best headline ever. Thank you for making my day.

  11. Deb says:

    Why do folks think whatever they read must be true. Common on – we need to start looking at the source. Not surprisingly I read that his PR person this story was ridiculous. The guy doesn’t even look at that tan.

  12. bns says:

    Ugh. 2 douchebags, 1 movie.

    I really, really wish JT would quit with the “acting”.

  13. Jordan says:

    Maybe Justin Timberlake is his new side-piece? Maybe they needed to get out of their beige rut and decided to have a little fun together. I think their pics in the backseat of a car would blow K-Stew and Rupert’s out of the water.

  14. Tiffany says:

    Hahahaha……There were previews of that film ‘Argo’ at TDKR, when it was over, me and my friend looked at each other and said, ‘That was horrible’ and we were not talking about the hair.

  15. ShanKat says:

    I still would.
