Star: Ben Affleck & Emily R ‘spent a lot of time together in their trailers’

star_benjenoct
I finally had the chance to see Gone Girl last weekend. I agree with Kaiser that it was an entertaining, engrossing film that did justice to the book and that Affleck did a great job as Nick Dunne. So it looks like Ben’s leading man status is cemented again, considering that his film dominated the box office for two weekends. That also means that Affleck is tabloid fodder, as usual. This week Star Magazine is running the cover above, on the alleged state of Ben and Jennifer Garner’s marriage, with the title “The Fight To End All Fights.” It’s hard to keep track of how many times Garner and Affleck have covered Star, but I do know that their “Marriage Crisis” also covered the mag in May, right after Ben was busted counting cards in multiple casinos. According to the new issue of Star, Ben and Jennifer are fighting over his gambling as well as his seemingly close relationship to his onscreen mistress, Emily Ratajkowski. Star doesn’t outright accuse Ben of cheating, but they hint that there’s something going on. Here are some excerpts from their cover story:

It’s suspicious that they have been talking about each other
Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner have been gushing about each other in interviews lately… it seems especially out of character… insiders are whispering that their lovey-dovey talk is designed to hide their rel-life marital crisis. “They have a lot of pressure on their shoulders to publicize the heck out of these movies, and in doing so they need to appear to have a picture-perfect marriage,” one source explains. “But really, Jen is unhappy, and she doesn’t trust Ben.”

Jen is “devastated” over Ben’s relationship with Emily R
The trouble with Emily, 23, started shortly after Ben handpicked her to play his lover in the movie… “When Jen learned secondhand that Ben had picked a hot model for the role, she flipped… Ben tried to calm her down, but she was in tears. She’s still devastated…

Ben got “extremely close” to Emily
“They definitely got extremely close during filming. They were always flirting and laughing together, just like two kids… There wasn’t much to do in town, so Ben and Emily just spent a lot of time hanging out together in their trailers or at the hotel. Away from the Hollywood spotlight, they had a lot of privacy…

“If Jen found out that he and Emily did have an affair, she would definitely divorce him,” says the insider. “She’s put up with his crap for many years, so you’d better believe the divorce would be nasy.”

[From Star Magazine, print edition, October 27, 2014]

After that Star gets into Ben’s gambling issues and how Jennifer allegedly has a problem with his gambling. Ben has admitted to being “obsessive” over Blackjack but he’s tried to claim that he’s not addicted to it. As for whether he had an affair with Emily or not, I don’t think he did but it’s an easy narrative. She has definitely gushed about him in interviews. We know Ben cheated on J.Lo with Canadian strippers 10 years ago. There were rumors about Ben and Blake “Antebellum” Lively during filming for The Town, but those were somewhat circumstantial and weak. I want him to have changed! Plus I doubt that Jennifer is “devastated” or that she’s preparing to divorce Ben. She’s been game to pose for kissy pictures and talk him up in interviews. She’s not leaving anytime soon.

In more verifiable news, Affleck is confirmed to play Batman in yet a second film, The Justice League Part One, to be released in 2017. He’s still filming Batman v. Superman, which is out in 2016. I think he’ll actually do a decent job as Batman, but we’ll have to see.

    I don’t think he has changed but I also don’t think this article is true. Drinking and gambling when you’ve gone to rehab for those issues is called a relapse so he is currently an active alcoholic and probable gambling addict.

    That being said Garner is a classic enabler and I think she turns a blind eye to all of it. I don’t think she’s going anywhere.

  2. Lee says:

    I’ve always thought those rumors about Ben&Blake were true…I still think she slept with him during The Town shootings. Ben is a wild animal, can’t see him being faithful, even though Jen is a great woman.

    • Lori says:

      I would look to Rebecca Hall before Blake Lively.

      • Somenestolemyname says:

        +1 yup Rebecca Hall rumours made the rounds.

      • Leah says:

        Would rebecca hall be interested in affleck? She seems highly intelligent and i don’t think Ben is her type.

      • Bucky says:

        Rebecca Hall clearly has no problem getting with married men (see: Sam Mendes), but I don’t think Ben is her type.

        I do think Ben slept with Blake, and I think Jennifer’s devotion to Ben not only allowed her to stay with him but to rehabilitate his image and the play down the rumors. She adores him and understands that he is his own worst enemy.

      • Pat says:

        Also: Robin Wright while filming State of Play. Rumor has it that that affair started the Penn’s divorce drama.

    • FLORC says:

      Blake is 1 of the few celebs I think haven’t racked up the numbers. She’s said so, but also history backs her up.
      Leo admitted as much. He was trying to bed her during the Bleo days and she shut him down. Someone saying no to him certainly backs up his behavior in that aftermath.

      Did Blake flirt and send that photo? Ibelieve she did. Did she sleep with him? I really doubt that.

      Has Affleck cheated on Garner? Likely.

      • tc says:

        Sending nude photos to a married man is much worse than having high “numbers” of single, available men.

    • Jegede says:

      @Someonestolemyname
      Its funny you should mention Rebecca Hall.

      There were many sightings of Hall and Affleck around Boston during The Town.
      And she got with Sam Mendes when he directed her in a play, and while still very much married to Kate Winslet.

      But she’s a Cambridge educated thesp. so stuff like that won’t follow her the way it would an Emily/Blake

      • Moie says:

        Yup, it was Rebecca Hall all along. Blake was the cover up. And Ben is still a douche.

      • Bucky says:

        Eh, it’s definitely colored my view of her. Plus, she annoyed the everliving hell out of me in Vicky Christina Barcelona.

      • Somenestolemyname says:

        Yes,those were the rumours I heard too, that while everyone was thinking it was Blake, it was actually Rebecca Hall.

      • Cali says:

        Ben gave so many gushing interviews about blake when he was promoting the town and then there are those pictures of him flirting with blake where he looked smitten but I don’t think blake is the type to have a fling with a married man type but rebecca hall doesn’t seem to mind and there were pictures of Ben with rebecca hall at the venice film festival. I can see him and Emily having a fling while she was in town because Ben is a cheater and i believe Garner doesn’t care as she’s not about to give up the power and prestige that comes with being Mrs Ben Affleck in Hollywood.

  3. Tisha says:

    I’d be shocked if he didn’t sleep with Emily. He suggested her for the role, too.

    • mernymerlyn says:

      I feel the same way.
      Hey, the naked girl from the Blurred Lines video? The one with the amazing boobs?
      She should play my mistress.
      Can she act?
      Ummmm……

      • Felice says:

        Oh she doesn’t love herself if she was in that video

      • OriginalTessa says:

        It was a modeling gig. She’s a model. It’s part of the job. I doubt she knew it would make her famous.

      • Felice says:

        Yeah I guess I was a little pissy this afternoon my apologies.

      • Leah says:

        Has she ever acted before or did he just think she “looked the part”. Eyeroll.

      • Maria says:

        Her part was the weakest part and pretty unsympathetic. The audience I saw the film with reacted to Emily’s character as though she was ludicrous. I’m not sure how much of a step up for her career it was, since it could all too readily typecast her. If she’s lucky, she’ll get a couple of parts that don’t require her to take her clothes off or play exploitable college age ingenue types. If she’s real lucky.
        Otherwise, she could all too easily end up being the flavor of the year.

    • Tiffany :) says:

      I think the “meta” casting for the film was why he suggested her, in addition to her amazing rack. The video was so polarizing in that it was debated whether it was exploitation or sexual freedom. I think there are similarities to her character in that was she being exploited by her professor or was she the “slut” that was hooking up with a married man.

      The rumors about them possibly hooking up came BEFORE the movie was even filmed, so I think these current suspicions are based entirely on assumption and not because there is anything factual to support them.

    • Pat says:

      I find hard to believe that the noted I-do-it-my-way Fincher would accept that Affleck will handpicked his mistress actress. Fincher would never leave that decision to an actor, even if it’s Affleck.

  4. Sisi says:

    Lol. Ben and Jen are always spammed all over the place when he has something to sell. Just like during Argo. Nothing unusual about that.

  5. Kitten says:

    Just stopping by to +1 to everything Jayna says…whenever she gets here….

    • Jegede says:

      Lol me too.

      And to add I am NOT surprised that this angle has AGAIN been introduced into the Ben & Jen
      dynamic.

      With the 20+ year old female cast member to be slandered/rumormongered for time.
      Only surprised it took this long

    • blue marie says:

      Ah, come on, they were just working on their fitness. No one said it had to be vertical.. I kid, I think Jen has him on a tight leash.

    • Kayla says:

      Kitten? Your name should be sheep!!!

    • Bobbiesue says:

      she’s way down at 32. I plussed one for you.

    • Jayna says:

      I’m here. Just a few days late. Reading these comments is just a joke to me. Now everyone is saying he and Rebecca Hall not Blake cheated with Ben on The Town, like these women are just falling at Ben’s feet and that Ben cheated with them, well, because word on the internet is. LOL Again, people, Jen and their kids lived in Boston while he filmed The Town. He said he was never so stressed in his life, directing his second movie and knowing he needed to prove his first one with good reviews wasn’t a lark and acting as lead in it, and it was an action thriller to boot with many intricate scenes to set up. He has said Jen was one of the few who believed in him when he did the first movie. He had his wife and family there, and many long hours at night at home going over the next day’s scenes as a director and as an actor and spending time with his family.

      But, oohhhh, Ben was cheating and off having fun. The guy had so much on his shoulders and his whole career still precarious. This movie was seminal in proving he had the goods to be a director and not a one-time fluke, and this one with a much higher budget. Blake’s part was small and she was probably onset for only about three weeks, not the whole movie shoot. Rebecca Hall was in a relationship, but it’s insulting that Ben cheats with every woman supposedly and that Rebecca was wide open for his advances like a play toy. Matt Damon has said he hates the disconnect between what people think about Ben and who he really is.

      Now he’s screwing Emily what’s her name who was probably on set for all of a few days with her teeny-tiny role and poor Jen puts up with it.

      Jen is not the type to put up with screwing around. Do I think he’s been faithful? I don’t know, but I don’t believe he has screwed these particular women because of gossip on an internet or by Star.

  6. InvaderTak says:

    Yeah easy narritive. Too easy to really believe.

  7. JudyK says:

    My god, that woman is GORGEOUS.

    Have never gotten the vibe that Ben was much into Jen. Just from viewing their pics together, he seems disjointed from her.

    • Brin says:

      He was into her enough to have three kids.

      • Jon says:

        Into her because she would be a great mother to his children. Ben is like a lot of men, they sort women into two categories, the kind you marry to have children with and the kind you fool around with. Jen is the type you want to be a mother to your children and Emily is the type you fool around with because she’s fun and marriage to Jen is boring.

    • Charlie says:

      Am I the only one who finds Emily really unfortunate looking in the face department? And she seems very unlikable too.

      • Etheldreda says:

        No, you’re not. Great body, sure – but then she is a 23 year old glamour model – but scary face. She also seems to think nobody had ever seen a decent rack until she and her boobs came bouncing into that sleazy video.

        And given that she’s got a great publicist – you’d swear she was the star of ‘Gone Girl rather than a bit part – I wouldn’t be surprised if these rumours have been planted to up her profile just a bit more.

      • Sarahl says:

        I agree. She looked trashy in the movie. Maybe that’s what they were going for.

      • Maria says:

        You may have something there Sarahl.
        What struck me, other than the obviousness of the character type they hired her to play, was what a weak chin she had.

      • Denise says:

        I thought she looked very pretty and natural in the video (while I wasn’t retching) but have been surprised at how harsh and how much older she has looked since. I think she needs to lay off the makeup, she doesn’t need it and it just makes her look odd.

      • I'm With The Band says:

        I think I noticed how odd her face is when I was staring at her thinking, “who is this very crap actress in this very good movie?”. Thankfully the role of Andie was a small one.

    • OhDear says:

      She looks like a thinner version of Kim Kardashian in the last picture (this isn’t meant to insult ER).

    • Somenestolemyname says:

      I think she’s gorgeous also.

    • Delilah says:

      @ Jon, to build on your point about sorting partners into 2 categories: marry vs fool around. I think both women and men are guilty. But I don’t necessarily think looks are the only determining factor. Personality and breeding have a lot more to do with it. But the non-marrying adventurous, hot blooded types that like to explore have a very difficult time with longterm rel’s, esp. marriage b/c of the predictability and lack of passion. And that is my theory on why affairs happen – chasers need the chase and there’s no way to simulate the chase in a context where the milk is served up to you in the same dish every day at the same time. I wonder sometimes if the only way for couples to succeed for the longrun is being the same animal – both wild or both tame?

  8. don't kill me i'm french says:

    Even me,i was able to write this story after Emily’s commentary on “her” scene with Ben and their “crazy alchemy”

    I also saw the movie …in my opinion,it’s better than Panic Room or The Game ( my english isn’t enough good to be able to develop)

  9. Arya Martell says:

    This is one Hollywood couple that I don’t think minds using the gossip mags and paparazzi to keep themselves relevant. All media stories about both of them seem very calculated. So I think we’re being trolled here. They won’t be divorcing anytime soon and if they do it will be media s***storm.

  10. Sabrina says:

    The two of them are in this marriage for the long-haul and no tabloid stories whether true or not are going to break this marriage up.

    I would be shocked if they ever did divorce unless there is undeniable evidence that he cheated and it turned into some Rupert Sanders-Kristen Stewart situation. Even then I think the marriage will most likely continue as they both get something out of it.

    • Anne tommy says:

      Some people can tolerate cheating, some can’t. Think it’s up to couples themselves to work out that issue. Not keen on cheaters But I would not Judge people who choose to stay married to one. I’ve no idea of course if Jen falls into that category.

  11. lucy2 says:

    Star Magazine, folks…

  12. Maya says:

    How you get them is how you lose them – isn’t that what people say?

    Jennifer was married while Ben was engaged to J-Lo when Jen G & Ben got together. Ben even admitted that in his Oscar speech.

    • Luca76 says:

      Nah she had dumped her hubby for Michael Vartan then dumped Vartan for Ben.

      • Jayna says:

        Her ex- husband begs to differ. He said no one cheated and there were reasons for their marriage ending. Her career taking off over his put a strain on the marriage.

        Michael Vartan said he and Jennifer were better as friends and that she seemed very happy with Ben and he was happy for her. The guy even said he would love to do a movie with Ben. That interview was given back when they were on the last year of Alias.

    • Sara says:

      how did he admit that in his Oscar speech?

      • Luciana says:

        I don’t remember his Oscar speech but apparently he offended Jen in someway. All he had to say was “thank you”, “i’m very grateful” Why taliking about her wife? So odd.

      • Sunny says:

        He didn’t offend Jen- he offended the public. In his acceptance speech, he thanked Jen for putting up with him for 10 years and being his partner in ‘the hard work of marriage’ then he made a comment about marriage being the hardest and best work there was.

        People took it to mean he didn’t love his wife and that he was an insensitive ass. Jen played it off and responded later by saying she understood his point.

      • Sara says:

        i got that he wasnt gushing about her but the poster above said that he admitted that they were with other people and i dont think that happened.

    • Somenestolemyname says:

      Ben broke the engagement or put it off, basically had already dumped JLO, practically stood her up at the alter.

      JLO then ran to Marc Anthony.

  13. Ellen says:

    This has been the rumor for years, that Ben cheats with his co-stars. Why would Jen leave now?

    It’s an easy headline for Star but do any of us think it’s based on actual reporting? _I_ could have written it!

    • don't kill me i'm french says:

      1/ because it’s untrue
      2/ because it happened once only
      3/ because she doesn’t care
      4/ because they have an open marriage

      Choose your options

  14. Luciana says:

    I’ve never been a fan of his. For some reason, I don’t find him attractive and his face screams “douche” to me. It’s a pity that if things aren’t really working in their marriage, she stays just to continue being “Mrs. Affleck”. You should expect faithfullness from your partner. She seems fine with the fact that everybody knows he’s a cheating a-hole. All this make her looks like a fool for putting up with his bullsh*t like her character in “Butter” (Awful movie, btw).

    • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

      I don’t think Ben is all that good of an actor. He doesn’t ruin a movie for me, but he doesn’t really add anything to it either. And he’s not all that attractive to me either–he’s decent looking, but he would not get a second look from me on the street. And I can’t believe Argo won best picture.

    • Arya Martell says:

      +1 on everything you said. The thing is whenever I see or read an interview with him or Jennifer Garner, I can’t explain it but my “I’m being lied to” senses go off big time. I think this marriage is more of a business arrangement at this point. I hope I’m wrong and the rumours aren’t true and they do love each other dearly but this is Hollywood you can never tell.

  15. Dorotea says:

    I personally think Ben cheats on Jennifer, I think their marriage it’s more about them raising their family and keeping their “perfect hollywood family image” intact. JLo is drop dead georgeous and super sexy and he cheated on her (And that was 10 years ago!). But unless there are leaked pictures or videos Jennifer will keep a blind eye on it and will pretend her perfect marriage is that. Perfect.

    • Somenestolemyname says:

      Men cheating is not about looks, so JLO being gorgeous had little to do with him cheating on her.

      • Anne tommy says:

        Some people can tolerate cheating, some can’t. Think it’s up to couples themselves to work out that issue. Not keen on cheaters But I would not Judge people who choose to stay married to one. I’ve no idea of course if Jen falls into that category.

      • Delilah says:

        I concur that cheating is definitely not about looks. It’s about going out to get something you are not getting at home and perhaps after having exhausted all the other options, i.e., talking to your partner about your needs, trying new things, changing up the routine, traveling, date nights, etc. and having said partner dismiss you, feeling like there’s too much to sacrifice in just leaving the partner you love for lack of sex/intimacy and feeling the same problem is inevitable in all relationships. Maybe those open relationship types are on to something.

    • Wilma says:

      I don’t really agree with the idea that they try to keep up the image of a perfect marriage. They seem to be one of the few couples who, in interviews and such, reinforce the idea that marriage is a lot of work and that it doesn’t come easy (but that it’s worth it and they’re happy with eachother as partners). So, there is no pristine, perfect image to maintain.

  16. Jaderu says:

    I think Jen is going to cut him loose next year. I think she will time it right so that Ben has enough time to compose himself publicly and get through the Batman/Superman promotion and hoopla. She loves him but you can’t beat a dead horse.
    I’m usually right about this stuff too. I predicted Clooney backing out of the engagement and going along his merry bachelor way. Yup.

    • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

      I don’t really like them as a couple–mainly because I get the impression that Jennifer is the one who sacrificed her career for his. From what I read/heard from other posters, Jennifer’s career was HOT when she got with Ben, and basically everyone was scratching their heads at why she was with him, because he was basically ‘no one’. He was the +1, on HER arm. And then they got married, had kids, and she just kind of faded away. He does all of the award winning work, while she stays home and raises the kids–and whenever Ben’s got some time between projects, she goes out and makes a kid movie. I mean, there’s no reason that Jennifer should be out making crappy movies like Butter (seriously, I could hardly watch it)–her husband’s a director/producer….go find some good roles for your wife. Develop some good roles for your wife. You’re a team. Act like it.

      To me, it doesn’t seem like he’s all that supportive of her career. I mean, maybe she prefers it that way–making movies whenever she wants, staying home with her kids, and supporting her husband. But you can put out some important, critically successful work while being a working mother, and supporting your partner’s career. Whatever a person thinks about Brad and Angelina, I don’t think you can say that Brad EVER held Angelina back from making the right career moves–whether they be humanitarian or film work. He’s always seemed to back her 100% and vice versa.

      Ben just feels like he’s dismissive of Jennifer–no matter what he says/praises her. Maybe they will break up, maybe they won’t–but if they do, I bet you he’ll regret it.

      • Ginger says:

        +1! Jen makes him more likeable to me. Otherwise I never got on the Ben Affleck train.

      • Luca76 says:

        @ VG I don’t think Ben ruined or held back her career at all. Garner was hot because she was awesome on TV in Alias. She never made the transition to movies. When she was really hot and everyone thought she’d be huge she just was in stinker after stinker kind of like a Heigl except she doesnt have a rep for being difficult. Even the hits she’s been in had almost nothing to her being great but just keeping out of everyone’s way while they made the movie good.
        If you ever get a chance to watch Alias it’s almost shocking that Garners was so good as Bristow considering she’s so milquetoast in movies.
        My opinion is that Ben keeps her relevant or she would be back on TV in a mid range drama.

      • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

        Ugh, I just looked at her wiki page–she has a production company (Vandalia films-started in 2005) and she’s the one that produced Butter…wtf? That’s the only thing she’s produced.

      • lucy2 says:

        She works pretty steadily, she has 4 movies in 2014 so I don’t really see that he’s holding her back.
        I think the slowdown happened when she took time off for pregnancy and babies, and like most other actors she’s had some hits and some misses. In the same time Ben managed to reboot his career with directing, and now is getting big roles, so by comparison his career is booming while hers is just fine, but I don’t think that means he’s holding her back.

      • Sara says:

        to be fair its not like Jennifer was the next Meryl Streep in terms of critical acclaim or the next Jennifer Lawrence in terms of boxoffice. she has parts in movies and never stands out and the movies rarely create any buzz.
        Daniel Day Lewis only works every couple of years, so i dont think being a mom destroyed her career. it could also simply be her choice. but just looking at the big picture Ben clearly has more options to make the big bucks, he is way more talented. Jen lives mostly of her image as americas sweetest mom married to a hollywood hunk. that image also helps Ben of course and without it he probably wouldnt be where he is today. thats why i dont get that he still acts like that, at least out of decency.

  17. HughJass says:

    I forget – are they the couple that has a new baby every time there is a cheating rumor? Or is that Posh and Becks?

  18. Tisha says:

    Jen’s whole identity is being Mrs. Ben Affleck and mother to his kids. Her career comes second to his, she even said that what she does is not as important as his filmmaking. She’s not going anywhere even if he publicly humiliates her, and I don’t mean just embarrassing her in his Oscar speech. He could cavort with a PYT and she’d put up with it.

    • minx says:

      I agree. I think she wants her family and that she loves and will put up with a lot to stay married to him.

  19. Ag says:

    “Blake ‘Antebellum’ Lively” – LOL

  20. Seapharris7 says:

    I really like then together. Sure, he’s an addict and she’s an enabler – but that’s the pretty constant thing about addicts: We find those who will put up with our $h*t. Oh wait, that’s kind of like everyone, right? I mean, maybe someone isn’t an alchy or gambler, but they have ED and temper issues. In any situation none of us are 100% flawless – NONE OF US – we find a partner who will support us through our darkest times & also one that has flaws that we can live with.

    I really think these two decided a long time ago they’re in it for the long haul. I hope Ben gets honest about his addictions & Jen is happy because their kids depend on them.

    • Sugar1 says:

      I like your comment

    • Heather says:

      This is a really great comment!

    • Tulip Garden says:

      Great comment! You have really given a new perspective to the same old, same old when it comes to relationships that aren’t “fairytale” perfect….which, while most won’t admit it, is ALL relationships :)

    • Luca76 says:

      I am going to go ahead and assume that none of you know what the clinical definition of an enabler is?

      There isn’t anything romantic or normal about co-dependency. It’s an unhealthy pattern that keeps an addict in addiction and an enabler in denial.

      There are so many ways that couples can be supportive of each other when problems arise without feeding into their self destruction. Communication and boundaries are so much more loving.

      • Seapharris7 says:

        Did I imply it was romantic? Here’s what I know about any enabler – they don’t stick around because everything about that person is awful 100% of the time.

      • Luca76 says:

        I don’t disagree that there can be good things in a codependent relationship that can keep it going and however I strongly disagree that it’s part of being supportive in a marriage.

    I tend to believe what Goop said about Ben all those years ago- something along the lines that is ideal woman wears a bikini and drinks budweiser or wears a budweiser bikini or something about bikinis and bud. I also think he is probably pretty conflicted individual. I think on the one hand he adores his family, the whole clan, and is really proud of his professional successes, but on the other, I think part of him really enjoys boozing, flirting, gambling, and sometimes those vices can make one lose track of what is really important. Certainly, people grow up and change but a cloud of suspicion is always above BA, and it is likely there for a reason.

    I want Garner to pull a “Holmes” to see how he’ll react then!!!

  23. Talie says:

    If Ben was single then, Blake would’ve locked him down, but I don’t think she went there.

  24. Dolce crema says:

    I find her stunning, she was absolutely the captivating stand out in blurred lines (after pharell) even though the other 2 were very “classically” pretty

    I don’t think Jenn would be upset with Ben casting Emily. It’s pretty obvious that he would cast someone like that because she suits that role. What, would they hire a dowdy old lady for that role?? On the topic of Andy and who would play her, when I read the book I pictured Jessica Alba lol

  26. murphy says:

    I’m sure Ben and Jen have some arrangement when it comes to that.

  27. MG says:

    I think Ben is a slime ball. He went after J.Lo when she was married…then cheated on her with strippers…so he doesn’t sound like he has a lot of moral fiber.
    When he hand picked Emily, who is not an actress, that would have infuriated me. He basically was saying “I want to make out with the hot girl in the video”
    And didn’t Emily say in an interview that her and Ben were kept apart from the rest of the cast, at a different hotel. Why? Wtf! They banged…for sure.

  28. Div says:

    I think this is BS, but it’s weird that he handpicked her (and I buy that’s true as I read it on deadline) considering she had no real acting credits and he wasn’t the director or producer

  29. Lisa says:

    I am with Virgilia. Jennifer had more of a career when they got together. Ben was a has been at that time. Ben ruined Alias for me. It was a great TV spy show and there is nothing like it at the moment. And yes, Ben does step out on their marriage. From the tweets that I have read, he does. People have seen Ben with other women. I believe at this point it is just a business arrangement. There was a point back on 2007/2008, a rumor circulated that Jennifer was leaving Ben but Ben’s camp denied it. Recently, Ben did the same thing on Details, before GG came out. So I would think Ben needs Jennifer more than vice versa. Between the two, Jennifer can survive w/o Ben.

    Ben got lucky with Gone Girl because of the director and it was over hyped. Otherwise, he is just a B actor. And between the two, Jennifer is more likable as she is really nice in real life. Tweets also verified this from regular people.

  30. I know what boys like says:

    I watched Gone Girl last weekend and I have to say, they could not have found a better Nick Dunne than Ben Affleck. It wasn’t just his douche face. I think Flynn and Fincher saw into Ben’s soul and saw a man that is emotionally immature, who wallows in his self-loathing so much that it manifests as narcissism. Ben’s personalities seem to morph into that of the woman he is dating. I didn’t follow his relationship with Goop much. But I was front and center during the J.Lo years. The man turned into a walking Dolce & Gabanna ad. Slick hair and manicured brows. Then he got with Jen and he morphed into simple W. Virginia Ben. Now, I think he is trying to find his way. At his core, Ben seems like a troubled man with a lot of demons to overcome. I don’t think of Jennifer as an enabler. I think of her as a patient wife who is willing put in the grunt work and help her husband keep his crap together. She has children with this man. And say what you will about Ben, I believe he loves his children. Jennifer has become his caregiver and unfortunately, husbands take “moms” for granted. A

    SPOILER:
    I hated the fact that his lips touched Emily’s tits. Knowing what I know of Ben, my cheating radar went off and I thought of Jen watching it.

  31. Sunny says:

    I call BS on this article. Do I believe Affleck has cheated on her in the past- hell yes but not in this case.

    Jen adores Ben and being Ms.Affleck. Half the pictures of them together are her looking at him adoringly. Vulture recently ran a piece discussing the short-lived Kevin Smith, dinner party show filmed in 2003 way before they were together and if you watch the clips, she already looks at him like a woman blindly in love. Ben was with JLo at the time, Jen was with Vartan at that point(?) but it was clear that she was showing a crazy amount of interest/affection for Ben.

    My position has always been that she loves him madly, knows his faults(women, gambling) and chooses to put up with them. He seems to care about her but not with the same devotion. They will stay together until/unless he humiliates her publicly and she is forced to make that choice.

    • Cynch says:

      Sunny, if you look at old pictures of Jennifer with other people/actors, she always has that look for them. She looks like she adores them not just her husband. There are other pictures that don’t get published but if you dig enough, she doesn’t look like that at Ben all the time. For some reason, they picked the ones where she looked at Ben with adoration but that is just her personality. But like what my husband said, she went into this marriage knowing all of Ben’s faults and his mad demons, that includes having other women. It is a given.

  32. Jayna says:

    Yawn. Emily was probably on set a few days. She had several minutes in a couple of scenes, nothing more. Off in his trailer. LOL

  33. Nymeria says:

    They were just playing checkers together, since there was not much else to do in town. And when they got bored of checkers, they switched to chess. And then were in separate beds, in separate rooms, by 9 p. m. after having said their prayers together. They even wore little tasseled nightcaps to bed, because that’s just how innocent things were between these two.

  34. Chem says:

    What happened to her butt? She has no butt

    • Jess says:

      I’m gonna guess 3 pregnancies stole her butt! I had the same thing happen, I had a great perky booty that got even bigger during pregnancy, then I lost all the weight and then some and my ass went with it, have a total “mom butt” now, lol.

    • Jess says:

  35. Jess says:

    Guess I’m the only one who thinks Ben is faithful. I just can’t picture him cheating on her, he definitely has that bad boy image from years ago, and I think he has occasional issues with gambling and alcohol but I don’t see him having affairs, but I’ve picked horrible men for myself in the past so what the hell do I know, lol. Jennifer is a great catch, she’s gorgeous, sweet, and really pretty funny, maybe he treats her right, and just because she’s sweet that doesn’t necessarily mean that she’d put up with his crap or looks the other way.

  36. Sarahl says:

    Wonder what happened with Jen and Scott Foley? I find him to be quite fetching.

  37. captain says:

    I am concerned, Jen looks so pregnant, I hope she doen’t read this idiotic mag, and won’t get upset because of it. They probably wanted some comment on the pregnancy, were told to get a life, and are hitting back now. I actually think there was something going on with Blake. Whether they had sex or not, doesn’t matter. Cheating is not that straightforward, it can happen in many ways.

  38. JoJo says:

    These two are just truly one of the worst couples ever, without even a mili-shred of chemistry. Yes they have kids, but that doesn’t mean that I think they ever made sense as a couple. They’re just two people who seem to be so completely different in so many ways, I don’t see any point of connection and never have.

  39. Jessica says:

    Ben is a sleaze-ball, always has been. He’s behaved in a really gross way towards a lot of women, lot’s of inappropriate comments and touching. He even did a filmed interview years ago where he was drunk and trying to grope the poor interviewer, but for some reason everyone seems to have forgotten that bit of sexual harassment and all the other icky stories people have told about him. Hell, even some of his friends stories about him make him sound like a perve. Nothing’s changed. After the J.Lo and strippers debacle he just stopped cheating with people who’ll sell their story to the tabloids.

    • Lily says:

      Whoa I had to look that interview up. I now totally believe his reputation. Womanising douchebag. Maybe garner likes it.

  40. Leslie says:

    For what it’s worth, the still unknown Emily Ratajkowski’s PR team is probably putting these stories out there to get her some publicity. Even with all her makeup on, this girl is not attractive. Can you imagine how she looks without any makeup. She has a huge head, huge boobs and a stick body. Jennifer Garner is SO much more attractive, naturally.

    • Frank says:

      I agree. Emily is a 15 minute wonder unless she continues to sleep around and show her boobs. Her face looks weird. She will be good for casting couches only. No Jennifer Lawrence here. As for Ben, he will continue to be what he is unless there is a big scandal. On another thread, someone confirmed he had an affair too with Robin Wright while doing State of a Play and he was already married to Jennifer. As for Jennifer, we can only speculate on why she still stays with him. I can guess, maybe because of the kids. She will leave him soon. She is the more fun one. He is a big bore!
