Ben Affleck, an American actor, has responded to the outrage he has gotten as a result of his recent remarks regarding his ex-wife, Jennifer Garner.
On Wednesday, December 15, 2021, the actor revealed this on Jimmy Kimmel’s late-night show.
“We talked a lot about my family, divorce and alcoholism … and how you have to be accountable and loving,” he said.
“Then I start seeing all this stuff come up on Twitter. And I was like, what is this?” he said, blaming “clickbait” for reporting verbatim quotes in which he also said he’d likely still be drinking if he hadn’t left Garner.
During a recent interview, the actor blamed his prior drinking problem on his ex-wife.
“Part of why I started drinking was because I was trapped. was like, ‘I can’t leave because of my kids, but I’m not happy, what do I do?’ And what I did was drank a bottle of Scotch and fell asleep on the couch, which turned out not to be the solution,” he said.
From 2005 through 2015, Affleck and Garner were married and had three children: Violet, 16, Seraphina, 12, and Samuel, 9.
