Ben Affleck On Feeling Trapped With His Marriage To Jennifer Garner

Ben Affleck appeared on SiriusXM’s The Howard Stern Show, where he talked about his marriage. During his guesting, he mentioned that he would probably still be drinking if he were with his ex-wife, Jennifer Garner. He added that he couldn't leave because they have children.


The statement raised some eyebrows with many thinking he was blaming his unhappy marriage on his alcohol problems.

Even those who both know the couple didn't like what Affleck said in the interview.

"It’s disgusting," one industry insider told Page Six. "Jen has been the only one picking him up time and time again when he’s done horrible things — fallen off the wagon or worse."

The insider added, "Jen stood by him because she loves him. This is the mother of his children."

Meanwhile, Affleck reacted after the intense backlash when he appeared on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" According to him, the people misinterpreted him and blamed "clickbait" for reporting verbatim quotes and said what was reported was the exact opposite of what he meant.
