    wow Jen must be followed 24/7

  • Jessie

    Okay that’s their 3rd visit to a Doctor’s Office in the matter of weeks, she has to be pregnant.

  • Dani

    Why do they get papped so much?

  • ace11

    The guy still probably wishes he had J-Lo back

  • Rachel

    @ace11: LMAO! The J-Low who had divorce for the third time? No thanks. Talentless and old J-Low can just go ahead banging the fetus she’s with.

  • Trixie

    Ben acts all constipated while Jen coos in his ear. Her life must be hell.

  • April

    Favorite couple in hollywood hands down. We see them together way more often than Brad and Angie. Why, because they spend more time together with each and also with their kids than any other famous family.

    I can’t understand why people who don’t like them are so obsessed with them. They follow them more than their fans. Go figure. Talking to you Trixie and ace11. Why not follow your favorite couple? Not worth it huh?

  • April

    @ace11: The same JLo he dumped for Jen? Yeah, right.

  • Mel

    Oh please, he don’t even remember J-Hoe. His relationship with J-Hoe was only for publicity. Ben looked 10 times miserable back then.

  • who

    @April:

    You’re kidding right? We see Affleck and Jennifer more because they get papped every single day. Jennifer and her kids get photographed every day at the same place because she has to get coffee every day, like she doesn’t have a coffee maker at home. And Jennifer used to always get photographed alone with her kids like she was a single mom. After the bad press Ben got for some of the things he said about her and his kids I guess he decided to hang around his wife more and show how “happy” he is.

    Brad and Angelina know how to get around L.A. with their kids without being photographed, they don’t need to do the “paparazzi walk” every day.

  • April

    @who: Is that why they only spend time with their kids is when they are promoting something. Face it , they kids spend more time with the hired help than they do with their parents. That explains why we never see them until they are needed for PR. Hell, they even sold their kids first born pics to the tabloids. That my dear, is called *pimping* the kids.

    Spending quality time with them like school pickups and dropoffs, taking them for karate, ballet, and oh yes, you see them even taking them for dinner, farmers market, and sometimes on the way to and from school, they stop for a snack or coffee for themselves.

    I’m sure Brangelina kids do these things as well but only with nannys and body guards doing what parents should be doing. Who takes them for doctor’s appt? Never see that going on…I laugh when some people try to compare the Jolie-Pitts to the Afflecks.

    Ben has no bad press but only bashing from jealous people who hate the fact that he won awards for his film Argo and how many awards has Brad won?

    Afflecks rule,…..deal with it.

  • April

    Not to mention that Brad is jealous of Matt Damon because he can’t walk his kids to school. Yeah, he really knows how to get around LA without being papped with his kids. Don’t make me laugh. He knows how to drive thru the pickup line at McDonalds but when it comes to good old fashion daddy/kids time like normal folks, forget it.

    I am not knocking Brad and Angie, I like them too, but I hate when people try to compare them to the Afflecks. No comparison, sorry.

  • who

    @April:

    LOL. Don’t be so bitter.

  • who

    Nice spinning though.

    Brad gushes about his wife and kids all the time, while all Affleck can muster is that he can’t fully focus on his kids when he’s with them and they tell him to pay attention. He’s trying hard to appear next to Jennifer lately though, gotta give him that.

    I have nothing against Jennifer, I never compare any other couple to Brad and Angie but I just have a problem with people like you who spin tabloid crap about them like it’s the truth because you can’t think for yourself and find out what the actual truth is.

  • http://www.justjared.com Oh

    @April:
    your argument makes absolutely no sense
    the Afflecks are FAMEWHORES end of story
    and please leave the JP family out of this , they are not hypocrites.

  • JLO

    look! our relation is strong, we are a normal family…..please give a break ….smoke and mirror

  • matt

    Money for Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt Twins’ Photos Go to Charity
    By Roger Friedman
    Published August 01, 2008
    FoxNews.com
    The extraordinary amount of money paid for pictures of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s twins
    goes straight to charity.
    Whether it’s $10 million or $15 million or something in between, I can confirm that People magazine and its cohort in this craziness, Hello!, will get huge tax breaks. The money will be listed as a donation to the Foundation, which is run by a group called Foundation Source out of Long Island.
    Last year, as I first reported exclusively, the Pitts parked over $8.5 million in the charity, evenly divided between the two of them. Most of the $2.4 million that was distributed to charities included $1 million each to the Epidermolysis Foundation and Doctors without Borders. The Red Cross in Namibia, where baby Shiloh was born, got $137,035 although it’s unclear whether any of the local jounalists who lost their jobs during that time were ever compensated.

    From the money the Jolie Pitt Foundation receives from People and Hello! several local French entities could benefit including the children’s hospital where the babies were born. Even though the south of France is thought of as wealthy, there’s a substantial homeless and poverty class including in nearby Cannes. The Pitts’ money could be used in specific ways there as wellThe Foundation currently claims $6 million in assets, excluding a $1 million pledge they made earlier this summer to the children from war families. The new money could bring their endowment to $20 million. Expect at least some of that to go to families in New Orleans and the American Gulf Coast where Pitt has shown in interest in Hurricane Katrina and Rita survivors who are still suffering.

  • Dani

    @April: You make no sense. If Ben and Jennifer don´t want the attention, then they need to move away from Hollywood.
    You´re right about one thing, though. There´s no comparison between them and Brad/Angie. The latter gives back so much and actually uses their stardom for good causes and worthier issues than fighting for ´tougher paparazzi laws´.

  • Aimee

    @Dani: so do Ben and Jen???? Ben is the founder of the Eastern Congo Inititiave and has done tons for the Congo over the years. He’s traveled there several times, he’s raised tons of money, he’s filmed documentries and he has twitters and facebooks that he uses to bring attention to his cause not to mention that he has testified in front of Congress in DC for the Congo. And Jen is an Embassador for Save the Children. She has done tons of events over the years promoting it and even goes to the rural America homes and visits the families. She also has testified in front of Congress in DC on behalf of Save the Children. So yeah, Ben and Jen also give back to charity just like Brad and Angie.

  • Dani

    @Aimee: That´s not the point. It’s no surprise that celebrities like to have their name associated with good causes. It’s good PR. I don´t know, and honestly don´t care, whether they use charity work to improve their ´brand´ or whether they do it genuinely. As long as the charities get press and it help raise awareness… that´s all that matters.
    My issue is their hypocrisy. If you are so concerned about paparazzi taking your picture, then don´t give interviews to celebrity magazines (main source of money for paparazzi) when you have to promote something.

  • Dani

    ^^^^ My issue is their hypocrisy… when it comes to tougher legislation against paparazzi.

    ^^ That´s what i meant to say.

  • YIB

    I got to say that I know it is that time of the year for them where they got to pimp the relatonship and kids more , but still i got to give them that this kind of thing that looks geniune here lcute on any couple.

  • MaggieG

    I THINK IT’S WHEN MEDIA WORSHIPS ONE CELEBRITY TOO MUCH, THEY BEGIN TO THINK THEY ARE MORE THAN A FREAKING ACTOR WHO LIVE AND DIE BY OUR DOLLARS AT THE THEATER. Wonder how this bi tch and crazy berry would feel if the money flow stops. I SAY BOYCOTT BERRY, AFFLECK AND JENNIFER GARNER MOVIES. They don’t want us in their lives, we should not have them in ours in anyway. COME ON PAPS, RAGLOIDS, AND ‘WE THE PEOPLE” LET US SHOW OUR POWER AND BOYCOTT ANYTHING THESE THREE (ben afflect, jennifer garner and crazy berry) try to pimp on us.

  • kelly

    @Jessie:

    F.A.A.P is board certified pediatrician .So they were probably taking one their kids to the dr.The kids probably left from the back w/ their nanny while they left in front of the building

  • April

    Ben and Jen are the real deal, Brad and Angie are the media savvy Hollywood couple (family) who have all their fans brainwashed.

    They are the ones who the tabloids report on all the time due to their antics (including bedroom activity). The Afflecks may be followed more but admit it, we see lots of paps pics because they are living life like most of us ordinary people and yet…we know nothing about their private lives or their bedroom activities. They don’t walk red carpets together and show fake adoration to sell movies. They are still more interesting and that is why the paps are forever trying to find out the mystery as to why they are so loved by the masses.

    I see so many are trying to find holes in my comment because I have obviously struck a nerve when it comes to saying the truth about the more famous Jolie-Pitts. Truth hurts doesn’t it?

  • April

    @MaggieG: Get help dear, your loud mouth comments only show that your crazy has gotten the best of you. Who are you to tell people what to boycott? You don’t have that power to dictate what or whose movies to see. Seriously, get help before you wind in a mental institution.

  • Nola Bee

    @April: No, you get help and don’t visit articles of actors you don’t like. Yes, it is really that simple.

  • Nola Bee

    @April: Actually, it was not meant for April ( sorry about that), but for people who do not like the Afflecks ( which is fine), but why bother to argue with the ones who do enjoy reading articles about them

  • k

    l dont care what you people say. l think they are a great couple compared too others.the children always look happy and well adjusted.so what if they have help, they spend a lot of quality time with them. they dont drop names when enterviewed unlike bens best friend matt damon who is always name dropping.

  • Jay

    So happy that Ben dumped that Puerto trash for the beautiful white Garner.
