Ben Affleck 10 Fast Facts, Biography, Wiki
Affleck was married to actress Jennifer Garner from 2005 to 2018.
They began dating in mid-2004, having established a friendship on the sets of Pearl Harbor (2001) and Daredevil (2003).
They were married on June 29, 2005, in a private Turks and Caicos ceremony.
Victor Garber, who officiated the ceremony, and his partner, Rainer Andreesen, were the only guests.
They announced their separation in June 2015, with Affleck continuing to live in a guesthouse at the family home until mid-2017.
They jointly filed for divorce in April 2017 and it was finalized in October 2018.
In 2020, Affleck described the divorce as “the biggest regret of my life” and “a painful experience, even if you’re on the best possible terms and you agree it’s the best choice.”
Affleck and Garner have three children together: daughters Violet Anne (born December 2005) and Seraphina Rose Elizabeth (born January 2009), and son Samuel Garner (born February 2012).
In their divorce filings, Affleck and Garner sought joint physical and legal custody of their children.
While Affleck believes paparazzi attention is “part of the deal” of stardom, he has spoken out against photographs taken at his private residence and paparazzi interest in his children specifically, who he says became the “big money” draw for photographers waiting outside his home.
In 2013, Affleck and Garner hosted an event for lawmakers at their home in support of a bill that would protect celebrities’ children from harassment by photographers; their six-year-old daughter made a speech about her personal experiences.
Garner also testified before the California Assembly Judiciary Committee in support of the bill, which later became law. While photographs of children may still be taken, behavior which “seriously alarms, annoys, torments, or terrorizes” children is illegal, as is “lying in wait” outside their various activities.
Despite the law, photographers still regularly wait outside their children’s school and police assistance is sometimes required when they get too close.
In 2014, Affleck argued in favor of United Kingdom-style legislation which requires media outlets to blur children’s faces in published photos.
Affleck, Garner and their daughter Violet obtained a restraining order in 2008 against Steven Burky, Garner’s longtime stalker.
Burky was arrested in December 2009 outside their daughter’s preschool.
He was charged with two counts of stalking, to which he pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity.
In March 2010, he was ruled insane, sent to California’s state mental hospital, and ordered to stay away from the Affleck family for 10 years if released.
Affleck first dated Jennifer Lopez from 2002 to 2004.
After meeting on the set of Gigli in late 2001, they began a romantic relationship in July 2002 when Lopez filed for divorce from her second husband Cris Judd.
Their relationship was extensively publicized, with tabloids referring to the couple as “Bennifer”, the first celebrity portmanteau of its kind.
They appeared together in the music video for her song “Jenny from the Block” and the film Jersey Girl (2004).
They became engaged in November 2002 but their planned wedding on September 14, 2003, was postponed with four days’ notice because of “excessive media attention”.
They called off the engagement in January 2004.
According to Lopez, Affleck’s discomfort with the media scrutiny was one reason for their split and, years later, she described it as her “first real heartbreak”:
“I think different time, different thing, who knows what could’ve happened but there was a genuine love there.”
Both during the relationship and in the months after the break-up, Affleck characterized some of the media commentary as rooted in racism, classism and sexism:
“We were thought of as two different kinds of people.”
In subsequent years, he pushed back against the “curious notion” that he should view the relationship as a mistake, and reflected on the prevailing tabloid culture at the time “where it’s about one person and everybody focuses on them.”
Affleck acknowledged that “there were ways I did contribute to it”, citing the “Jenny from the Block” music video and a joint promotional interview for Gigli.
He said neither of them “anticipated” the degree of attention they would receive: “I think Jen and I made a mistake in that we fell in love, we were excited and maybe too accessible.”
Affleck and Lopez remained in contact in the years after their split and have spoken highly of each other in public.
They began dating again in April 2021, twenty years after they first met, with Lopez publicly confirming their relationship status that July.
Affleck began dating actress Gwyneth Paltrow in October 1997 after meeting at a Miramax dinner, and they later worked together on Shakespeare in Love (1998).
Although they first broke up in January 1999, months later, Paltrow persuaded Affleck to co-star with her in Bounce (2000) and they soon resumed their relationship.
They separated again in October 2000. In a 2015 interview, Paltrow revealed that she and Affleck remain friends.
Affleck had a long-distance relationship with New York-based television producer Lindsay Shookus from mid-2017 to mid-2018; they briefly dated again in early 2019.
Shookus is the head of Saturday Night Live’s talent department, a show which Affleck has hosted five times since 2000.
Affleck dated Cuban actress Ana de Armas, whom he met on the set of Deep Water in the fall of 2019, from early 2020 to early 2021.
