Damn, the powers that be are shitting on Ben Affleck again. Yesterday news broke about Ben groping Hilarie Burton on camera during a taping of MTV’s TRL back in 2003 (he subsequently issued an awkward apology on Twitter and probably PM’d Hilarie with “That’s just not cool, Hilarie!!”).
Earlier today, an old interview resurfaced on Youtube featuring Ben fondling “Box-Office” host as she attempted to ask questions about his 2004 latest film “Jersey Girl,” which had just released in theaters.
Is this any different than what Harvey Weinstein did? I know people are going to continue to shit on Ben, but is there a leading actor who didn’t get laid 5 nights a week in his prime? Being a King Sugar Daddy in your 20s comes with perks and when chicks throw themselves at you left and right, you don’t exactly have to Harvey Weinstein them into sexual submission. This video is case in point.
We don’t know if this was Ben Affleck enjoying a nice drive in Brentwood or whether he was prowling for potential sugar babies, but one thing is for sure, he didn’t look all that amused by the papz. Then again, Ben always looks a little pissed off when the papz are around.
Anyway, it’s probably a little too early for Oscar buzz, but apparently Ben’s upcoming film “Live By Night” is already generating some of it! The film, which releases on December 25, stars Ben, Elle Fanning, Brendan Gleeson, Chris Messina, Sienna Miller, Zoe Saldana and Chris Cooper. The upcoming film has a production budget of $65 million and has “Ben Affleck” written all over it. Aside from writing the screenplay, he’s credited as the director, one of the main producers and he even gave himself the starring role. Here’s more about the film:
Set in the 1920s and 1930s, the story follows Joe Coughlin, the prodigal son of a Boston police captain. After moving to Ybor City, Tampa, Florida, he becomes a bootlegger and a rum-runner and, later, a notorious gangster. Source
Following the NYC premiere of the anxiously awaited ‘Batman V Superman – Dawn Of Justice’ film earlier in the week, the studio is following it up with a glitzy European premiere in London. We’re pretty sure they had other premieres in mind, but I have a feeling that plans changed following the tragic events in Brussels yesterday. I’m sure Ben Affleck & company will move their attention to places like Australia, Japan, China & eventually cap things off with a big premiere in Los Angeles (wait, did that already happen?).
As for the attendees, Gal Gadot was looking much sexier & classier at last night’s premiere than she did at the NYC premiere. The 30-year-old actress, who scored the role of Wonder Woman in the blockbuster film, wore a beautiful red dress with a deep neckline and jeweled straps. The film will hit theaters this weekend (March 25). Check out an interview w/ Gal below.

We’re pretty sure there will be at least twenty of these premieres all over the world, so let’s hope they mix things up on the red carpet with more A-list supermodel attendees. I’m sure this will disappoint a lot of you guys, but I’m realizing that Gal Gadot doesn’t have the same red carpet presence like, say, a Megan Fox or an Amber Heard. She’s still a very sexy woman, but something is definitely missing.
As for the film, it will hit theaters this coming weekend (March 25, 2016) and we’re pretty sure it’ll go on to make at least a billion at the box-office—or at least we hope so! Few films get hyped as much as this one has gotten over the past couple years. Also, the fact that it had a production budget of around $250 million is probably making a lot of studio execs sweat behind closed doors, especially considering Ben Affleck’s superhero record on the big screen!

Or who knows, maybe he’s doing his own laundry these days and just can’t seem to figure out the dryer settings? Regardless of what’s going on, Ben Affleck’s ultra-tight t-shirts are getting uncomfortably comical, to put it lightly.
These latest photos were snapped as the newly single Hollywood D.I.L.F. was seen taking his daughter Violet to church near their home in the Pacific Palisades. Wait, he attended church in that T-shirt?! Oh boy.
There’s another angle of Ben’s man-boobies in the gallery for you all you ladies…
Adam Sandler pretty much looks exactly the same as he did back in the mid 90s. I guess that guy doesn’t want to screw with his cash-cow persona—and who can blame him? He was seen out with his daughters & their friends at the Brentwood Country Mart over the weekend.
As for Ben, the dude was spotted enjoying a trip to the farmer’s market in Pacific Palisades with his kids. It appears Ben is slowly getting over the divorce thing considering he finally oiled up his ringer finger & ripped off that wedding ring! Yesterday the dude was seen hitting up church with his wife & kids. Jennifer Garner & Ben Affleck are seriously giving “amicable divorce” a whole new meaning! Good for them!
Although, I feel like the relationship Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner currently share is a very unique one. For a couple who are willing to compromise on so much following their divorce, it makes you wonder why they didn’t do the same when they were married?! I don’t get it. On the bright side, they’re both still wearing their wedding rings, so it’s possible, albeit unlikely, that might reconcile.
Needless to say, when there are kids in the mix, you’re always hopeful for the least painful outcome, so let’s hope Ben & Jen can keep this up. Their trek through these coming years will be more like a double marathon through dark, dense forests littered with painful booby traps. I wanna say they can pull it off, but with the media’s constant scrutiny, it’s looking all that promising.
These latest photos were snapped earlier today in Atlanta, Georgia as the family is currently over there so that Jen can continue filming the upcoming “Miracles from Heaven.” The family appeared happy and relaxed on their walk. At one point Ben dropped the pink leash while handing his coffee to Jennifer, which sent her running alongside Seraphina.
Looks like this chick is getting paid by media outlets and presumably also some hush-hush money from people connected with Ben Affleck because she was seen out & about L.A. in her new convertible Lexus. Sure she was hitting up Sears with her sister, but still! The woman has a new car just weeks after it was revealed that she might be the one behind Ben Affleck & Jennifer Garner’s wrecked home.
Since I’m a contrarian by nature, I call bullshit on Ben Affleck setting fire to his house all for a not-that-hot nanny. Either Jennifer Garner was refusing to sleep with him or this chick got Ben drunk & high before jumping on top of him. I know this type of stuff happens all the time in the entertainment biz—especially in L.A.—so taking Ben’s side feels a little dumb simply because he appears to be an intelligent guy who seems to know what’s in his best interests.
And for those of you wondering, here’s the new nanny mobile…
At least that’s what a lot of people are searching on Google. Margot Robbie is currently engaged to some dude, so I seriously doubt she would want to wreck somebody’s home while she’s trying to create her own, but then again, Hollywood is pretty F’d up. Ben and Margot were recently in Toronto filming scenes for the upcoming film ‘Suicide Squads.’
The Ben Affleck photo above was snapped yesterday afternoon as the actor arrived in Atlanta on a private jet to pay a visit to Jennifer Garner. Apparently she’s staying at a home in the city (presumably there for a film). This latest meeting comes just days after they released joint statements calling an end to their marriage of 10 years.
Make sure you check the gallery for more photos of Margot Robbie!
There are crazy rumors flying around Sean Penn is apparently busy nibbling on Minka Kelly’s meaty legs these days (I hope these are just bad rumors), so it’s likely he’ll let Jennifer Garner simmer on the single-ladies grill for a few weeks before working his leathery charm.
It seems like the divorce rumors were in the air ever since Ben Affleck bagged that Oscar, so their recent announcement shouldn’t come as a total surprise. They’re calling it quits after 10 years in the marriage slammer. The pair released a joint statement yesterday—just a day following their 10th anniversary—saying, “After much thought and careful consideration, we have made the difficult decision to divorce. We go forward with love and friendship for one another and a commitment to co-parenting our children whose privacy we ask to be respected during this difficult time. This will be our only comment on this private, family matter. Thank you for understanding.” They have three kids together: Violet, 9, Seraphina, 6, and Samuel, 3.
So, who do you guys think that Ben Affleck will take to the “Batman” premiere?
