There's a new report that suggests one of the reasons why Affleck and his soon-to-be ex-wife Jennifer Garner have pulled the plug on their marriage is because the actor has been getting flirtatious with Lopez.
Both the club owner and Affleck's rep denied the story at the time to People.
Ben Affleck says the year he romanced Jennifer Lopez and made the bomb “Gigli” was the low point of his life.
“[It] was definitely the annus horribilis,” the actor-director told the October issue of Details magazine.
“I got shorthanded as That Guy — Jennifer Lopez, movies bombed, therefore he must be a sort of thoughtless dilettante, solipsistic consumer, blah blah blah.” Now married to Jennifer Garner and the father of three, Affleck said having a family has spurred him to make smarter career choices.
“I need my work to mean something to me in order for me not to be home,” he said, but conceded that his wife does most of the domestic work.
I don't think either of us anticipated the degree to which it would take on a world of its own,' Affleck has said.
