Ben Affleck Makes First Official Appearance After Filing For Divorce, Talks Having 'Thick Skin'

Ben Affleck got all dressed up to attend his first official appearance since he and Jennifer Garner officially filed for divorce.

The 44-year-old actor suited up in Dolce & Gabbana to attend the 1st Annual AutFest International Film Festival at AMC Orange 30 on Sunday (April 23) in Orange, Calif, ten days after he and Jennifer, 45, filed their divorce documents together.

Ben, who was honored at the event by Ed Asner for his performance in The Accountant as an action hero with autism, spoke about how he’s survived so long in the movie industry.

“Thick skin,” Ben expressed (via People). “You know you have to have a certain thickness of skin in this business because success and failure, as a performer, are really two sides of the same coin. You’re putting yourself out there and being evaluated, and it doesn’t go one way, all the way, every time.”
