Ben Affleck Opens Up About Jennifer Garner, Alocholism



During an interview with The New York Times, Ben Affleck revealed some of his decisions in life, and that includes divorcing Jennifer Garner.

He first talked about drinking, as he clears his throat, he said, “I drank relatively generally for a long time. What happened was that I started drinking more and more when my marriage was falling apart.

This was 2015, 2016. My drinking, of course, created more marital problems.”

That was then that his marriage with Garner started to change. He has three children with Garner.

They had at first extended separation. “The biggest regret of my life is this divorce. Shame is really toxic. There is no positive byproduct of shame. It’s just stewing in a toxic, hideous feeling of low self-worth and self-loathing.”

He breathed long and depended slowed down, “It’s not particularly healthy for me to obsess over the failures — the relapses — and beat myself up”.

He added, “I have certainly made mistakes. I have certainly done things that I regret. But you’ve got to pick yourself up, learn from it, learn some more, try to move forward.”

At 47, he tries hard to work himself back to the spotlight on track. Although he has four movies coming up, it still is not guaranteed that he will have a positive outcome.

In 2013, he also had an issue with a show host. He groped Hillarie Burton during an MTV show.

He, however, apologized for the incident on Twitter and said, “I misbehaved toward Ms Burton, and I sincerely apologize.”

He didn’t talk much about his alcohol issues in the past. He said “Relapse is embarrassing. I wish it didn’t happen. I wish it weren’t on the internet for my kids to see. Jen and I did our best to address it and be honest.”

Ben Affleck said he lived with his drunken father almost every day, “My dad didn’t get sober until I was 19.” But then he realized through his journey about living well.

“The older I’ve gotten, the more I recognize that my dad did the best he could,” Affleck added, There’s a lot of alcoholism and mental illness in my family. The legacy of that is quite powerful and sometimes hard to shake.”

His brother also has something to say about alcoholism and sobriety. His grandmother took her life in a motel when she was 46. His uncle killed himself with a gun, and an aunt was a heroin addict.

He said, “It took me a long time to fundamentally, deeply, without a hint of doubt, admit to myself that I am an alcoholic. The next drink will not be different.”

Many of the stars today have spoken about being sober. Brad Pitt was one of them. Jamie Lee Curtis, Demi Lovato, Anthony Hopkins, Jessica Simpson, Elton John, Demi Moore and a lot more have sought help and have become sober for decades and years now.

Affleck thanked some of his friends for being there with him. “One of the things about recovery that I think people sometimes overlook is the fact that it teaches certain values. Be honest. Be accountable. Help other people. Apologize when you’re wrong.”
