Ben Affleck Returns The Statements About Jennifer Garner
The commotion that has arisen after the statements that Ben Affleck made about his ex-wife Jennifer Garner during an interview on ‘The Howard Stern Show’ has touched the actor. Affleck was a guest on Jimmy Kimmel’s late night show and said his words were “completely taken out of context.”
Ben said, among other things, that at the time he felt trapped in his marriage and drank a bottle of whiskey every day. He also stated that he would probably still have been drinking if he and Jennifer were still married. Those statements earned him a storm of criticism, something the actor did not see coming.
“People have turned the conversation around to make it seem like I’ve done bad things. I’ve said we have a lot of respect for each other and always put our children first, something we do. It’s said that I blame my ex-wife for drinking and being trapped. I’m portrayed as the insensitive, horrible bastard. I would never want my kids to think I’m speaking badly about their mother,” said Ben, who was accompanied during his visit to Jimmy Kimmel by his girlfriend Jennifer Lopez, who waited backstage.
Whether Ben’s words had any effect remains to be seen. Once again, he is being bullied on social media.
A follower on Twitter said “You literally say that you felt trapped and that’s why you started drinking again. Don’t deny this, you’re only making it worse,”
