After nearly 2 years of will they or won’t get back together, Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck made it official by filing for divorce together. The friendliest exes are both asking for joint and legal custody of their three children, Violet, Serafina and Sam.
Why now? A source told People, “They always planned to divorce despite what people said. If you look at their first statement it says divorce not separate. They just did it the way they wanted to and did what was best for their kids. There was no catalyst, it was just time. Nothing has changed, they are and still will be putting their kids first.”
I always thought they would get back together especially after he recently completed rehab, guess not. But then again if Dame Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton can get remarried after their divorce, then so can Bennifer 2.0.
The last few DC Comics movies have been universally panned by critics and fans, so Warner Bros and Ben Affleck are making some changes to his Batman movie. Affleck will still star in it as Bruce Wayne and be a co-writer of the film, but he is no longer directing. In a statement, he explained why he stepped down.
“There are certain characters who hold a special place in the hearts of millions. Performing this role demands focus, passion and the very best performance I can give. It has become clear that I cannot do both jobs to the level they require. Together with the studio, I have decided to find a partner in a director who will collaborate with me on this massive film. I am still in this, and we are making it, but we are currently looking for a director. I remain extremely committed to this project, and look forward to bringing this to life for fans around the world.”
I would say it is a loss if I had any intentions of seeing it, but I don’t. I don’t like how dark these movies have become, so when they lighten up I will be back there to see them. Til then, I will stick with Lego Batman!
Ben Affleck and Jimmy Kimmel were reunited on his show yesterday and they posed for this photo. While the ABC late night host got an earful, the Oscar winner got a handful. As in Kimmel’s junk, so you have to wonder if they are still f*cking after all of these years? It is hard to debate otherwise. Nothing says your Bromance is something more when he has your balls in your hand. Does it?
