Ben Affleck has revealed that he recently completed rehabilitation treatment for an alcohol addiction.
After it was reported that The Batman won't start shooting until 2018, Ben Affleck also clarified that his problems with Alcoholism didn't have anything to do with him quitting the project.
The estranged couple was last photographed together in Los Angeles on February 5, though sources revealed to ET earlier this month that despite reports of the couple reconciling and calling off their divorce, "there is no update or change in Ben and Jen's relationship" since they split almost two years ago.
The "Daredevil" actor has taken his alcohol addiction seroously.
That seems to be the question these days when it comes to Ben Affleck, 44, and Jennifer Garner's, 44, impending divorce. He's not the villain here, and he really doesn't need any more criticism over what was arguably the right decision to step away from The Batman and seek medical attention. Ben has struggled with alcohol for years and it's a struggle that millions of people have to battle every day.
When Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner announced their separation, tabloids did not connect Ben Affleck's alcohol addiction to the breakup of the marriage.
Affleck said he was lucky to have support from family and friends, including his "co-parent, Jen". They have three children: Violet, 11, Seraphina, 8 and Samuel, 5.
"I went to rehab for being 29 and partying too much and not having a lot of boundaries and to clear my head and try to get some idea of who I wanted to be", Affleck said. He was first slated to direct, write and star in the film, but he stepped away from the director's chair earlier this year. I want to live my life thoroughly and be the best father possible, " he hopes for the future.
Without calling him his "wife", Ben Affleck pays him a moving tribute: she " encouraged" him and took care of their children while he was being treated for rehab. And, although they've been publicly supportive of one another, these two are the most amicable exes we've ever seen!
