Ben Affleck on Fake Rumors Concerning Him & Jennifer Garner: 'That's All Bulls-t'

Ben Affleck on Fake Rumors Concerning Him & Jennifer Garner: 'That's All Bulls-t'

Ben Affleck shows off his huge muscles in this brand new feature from his Details magazine October 2014 cover story.

Here’s what the 42-year-old Gone Girl star had to share:

On what drew him to Gone Girl: “I don’t read too many airport husband-and-wife-killer thrillers, but my guess is that what set this apart is that Gillian is very skillful, obviously. And it points more specifically, more elegantly, and more directly at this theme that we all kind of identify with, on some level, about marriage, about relationships, about what we show one another. And that was adeptly wrapped in the shell of a thriller. But underneath it was something thematically more resonant than your common thriller.”

On infamously counting cards at a casino: That is a true story. I mean, that took place. I took some time to learn the game and became a decent blackjack player. And once I became decent, the casinos asked me not to play blackjack. I mean, the fact that being good at the game is against the rules at the casinos should tell you something about casinos. There’s a lot of hospitality, backslapping, when they think you’re gonna come in and dump money, and if they think you might leave with some money, it’s like, ‘You know what? Why don’t you try craps or roulette?’”

On a fake story that his wife Jennifer Garner has had it with him: “See, that’s tabloid sh*t. That’s all bullsh*t. They completely lie. I mean, I can show you 10 articles of Star and OK!—those magazines feel totally comfortable absolutely fictionalizing every single element of the story. And there’s nothing you can do about that. My only hope is that people with any common sense recognize that those stories are false. And, I don’t know, there’re worse stories…”

    Don’t worry Ben,don’t let those jealous hags destroy your marriage and family.The lonely hags can’t even keep a relationship intact therefore foam at the mouth at those that can.

  • Yuvugvguv

    Yeah, it is bull. The truth is that he’s had it with her.

    He should also take responsibility for his actions. He brazenly did something that was against the rules because he thinks he’s above them. He and Garner probably deserve each other.

  • April

    As long as his wife and kids love him, I will love him too.

    We really will never know but…. with regards to how the media over does it constantly on exaggerating what is truth, I personally don’t think Ben and Jennifer are going to split. They “seem” happy and are always seen doing things together as a family.

  • Rubbish

    Nonsense #2
    Ben is clearly in love and devoted to his wife and kids.You sound bitter at other’s happiness and have a need to tell malicious tales.

  • Leah

    Jennifer seems to put up with a lot more than most would be willing to.

  • Lucy

    What about those cheating rumors? Why didn’t he address it?

    Have you any common sense?probably not

  • allison

    The follow up question should be didn’t you go to rehab for your drinking and gambling addition?

  • allison

    @allison: *addiction

  • Zoee

    BEN is such a handsome, sexy man, look at that face he is so tall has a nice body etc etc very lucky women JEN GARNER

  • Mean

    Don’t like him. He thins he knows everything.

  • Shelly Dooval

    His wife is the most boring Woman on Earth. I’m sure he will cut and run.

  • April

    @allison: If you want to make a statement, do your homework. Ben has addresed the fact that he himself decided that a life without alcohol was in his best interest and checked himself into rehab for it. He never went for gambling and as far as we know, he has no problem with gambling other that the one fabricated by stans and tabloid/media outlets looking to make a buck by reporting such lies.

    Robert Downey, Jr. not only went to court mandated rehab after during time in prison for drugs and etc and yet none of you a-holes rush to bash him for it at every opportunity. Why is that?

    Ben should be applauded for seeking help for what was deemed to be destructive behavior and taking the necessary steps to become a more productive person. His record points to the facts of this.

    If you don’t like the man, that’s your right but kindly step aside and let us that do like him get on board with him.

    He may not be a perfect man but he is lucky enough to have found someone in Jen Garner to accept him for what he is. May God continue to bless them and their sweet family.

  • April

    @Shelly Dooval: You actually pay a compliment and I think that is why he chose her over the other attention seeking women he dated prior to her. I think she is exactly what that missing in his life. That is a lot to be said for the so called boredom that she represents. And for the record, people who know and like her don’t find her boring at all. Ben said in a recent interview that she is provides the calm that he needs in life. Learn the meaning of the word or find another more suitable one to describe her.

  • SureJan

    What he’s saying is, he can carouse all over Vegas, party with strippers, cheat on her with Gossip Girl actresses… and she isn’t going anywhere. There would have to be a public scandal in the Tiger Woods galaxy for her to leave him. Her whole identity as a person is being Mrs. Ben Affleck and Mother to the Affleck Children. She isn’t going anywhere. He has the comfort of knowing that he can get away with anything because his doormat wife will put up with it.

  • Jules

    fibbed?

  • April

    @SureJan: You have a vivid imagination. Does it keep you awake at night?

  • Bel

    @April:

    I totally agree with you!
    I love Jen Garner and her family :D
    I hope her marriage to Mr. Affleck will last forever….

  • Kelly

    @surejan

    If he was like anything you say people wouldn’t want to work with him..he’s dedicated and hard worker.that’s why people love working with him.And if you think Jennifer is doormat and would take Ben cheating you’re wrong. She didn’t take Michael vartans or Scott a Foley cheating she’s not going to take Ben doing that either.

  • NON-PLUSSED

    Just because they’re a couple of terrorist-hunting serial-killing homeopaths doesn’t mean they’re cheating on each other!! I mean, come on!! Enough’s enough!! 8O

  • NON-PLUSSED

    @Kelly: Jennifer and Michael Vartan only friend-dated. They only dated as friends who worked together. Jennifer and Scott Foley were married, but reports indicate he didn’t like her friends. Jennifer didn’t cheat on either of them.

  • Christina

    Where there’s smoke, there’s fire. And that’s all I’m going to say about this matter.
