Two-time Oscar winner Ben Affleck blames alcohol addiction to be the reason behind his divorce with actress Jennifer Garner and his decision to drop out of The Batman.
In an interview with The New York Times, Ben talked about abandoning the role of Batman, his divorce and his alcohol addiction.
“I showed somebody The Batman script. They said, ‘I think the script is good. I also think you’ll drink yourself to death if you go through what you just went through again,'” he said.
Talking about his drinking addiction, he said, “I drank relatively normally 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.”
He said 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.
Ben’s marriage with Jennifer ended in 2018. They both tied the knot in 2005. They have three kids together.
He will next be seen in The Way Back where he is playing the role of a reluctant basketball coach.
