Ben Affleck Responds to Ricky Gervais' 'Unfaithful' Joke

Ben Affleck is opening up about Ricky Gervais‘ joke about him from the 2016 Golden Globes back in January.

The comedian introduced the Batman v Superman actor’s longtime BFF Matt Damon to the stage and called him “the only person who Ben Affleck hasn’t been unfaithful to.”

In his new tell-all interview with The New York Times, Ben said that the gag “did not trouble him.”

“It’s the way Ricky Gervais perceives me, I suppose,” Ben said with a laugh. “Whatever. I’ve had jokes made at my expense before. It’s part of the deal.”

Ben Affleck Reacts to Jennifer Garner's 'Vanity Fair' Interview

Ben Affleck is opening up about Jennifer Garner‘s tell-all interview in Vanity Fair, which was released nearly two and a half weeks ago.

The 43-year-old actor opened up to The New York Times in a new interview to promote his upcoming movie Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

At first, Ben didn’t want to talk about his split “for the sake of his three children.” The reasoning he gave was “because it ends up being in the record somewhere, in the great miasma of junk on the Internet.”

Ben later discussed his split from Jennifer and acknowledged that he knew about the Vanity Fair piece before it was published.

Jen’s great. She’s a great person. We’re on great terms. I just saw her this morning, so that’s the reality that I live in,” Ben said. “She felt like she wanted to discuss it and get it out there and get it over with. So she could say, ‘Look, I already talked about it — I don’t want to do it again.’ It’s fine. She’s allowed to talk about it.”

Ben Affleck Reveals Robin's Fate in 'Batman V. Superman'

Ben Affleck is all smiles while encountering some fans as he walks through LAX Airport on Saturday night (March 12) in Los Angeles.

The 43-year-old actor recently opened up about his new movie Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which hits theaters on March 25.

In particular, he revealed a very interesting tidbit about Robin’s fate.

“[Batman]‘s bitterly disappointed in the past that he’s lost this guy who fought by his side,” Ben told EW. “That character’s death must have been devastating to him, and he’s suffered. We get the sense that he’s suffered a lot of devastating losses before this movie even starts.”

FYI: Ben is wearing J Brand jeans and The Frye Company sneakers. He’s traveling with a Tumi suitcase.

Ben Affleck & Henry Cavill Kick Off Press Tour in China!

Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill attend a press conference for their upcoming movie Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice on Friday (March 11) in Beijing, China.

The co-stars were joined by the film’s director Zack Snyder to kick off their press tour for the new superhero film.

Ben recently spoke to Entertainment Weekly and opened up about how his Batman differs from the ones in past movies.

“What I wanted was to create a Batman that was sort of at the end of his rope physically and psychologically and emotionally, a guy who was beaten down by the world, a guy who was a little bit more of a slugger, who has more gray in his hair, and who was questioning whether the whole journey that he lived as Batman was in fact even worth it, given that he was not superhero, but now had to face a super-being, which none of the other Batmans had to confront in the movie world,” Ben said.

“It’s an interesting thing to combine, because in the Nolan Batmans, which are the defining Batmans — so magnificent — there are no other superheroes,” he added. “It’s just this guy. He never has to reconcile who he is with this idea that there are all these other people who can do these supernatural things. Having to confront that and having to deal with that is my contribution to the character.

Ben Affleck Dressed as Batman at Son Samuel's Birthday Party

Ben Affleck heads to a studio for a day of work on Friday (March 4) in Santa Monica, Calif.

The 43-year-old actor recently dressed up as Batman, the same superhero he plays in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, for his son Samuel‘s 4th birthday party.

“We all dressed up, I dressed up as a ninja, and Ben dressed up as Batman for Sam, which was the best dad moment in history,” Jennifer told Extra. “It was pretty sweet.”

“He wanted a superhero birthday party and so he wanted superheroes there,” Ben said while on Jimmy Kimmel Live. “He was like, ‘and I want you to do Batman. Real Batman!’”

“There was Wonder Woman, Captain America, Iron Man and there was me … it was so mortifying,” Ben added. “First I thought, ‘It’s kids. It’s kids.’ I didn’t think that, of course, like, all their parents are there. So I had to, like, put on my outfit for this movie, and put on my scary face for the 4-year-olds and all their folks are there. It’s 11 in the morning and they’re kind of like ‘Wow. Batman.’”

Ben Affleck & Henry Cavill Talk 'Batman v Superman' with 'EW'

Henry Cavill and Ben Affleck take separate covers of EW‘s Batman v Superman issue, in character as the two title roles.

Here’s what the actors had to share with the mag:

Ben, on Batman questioning himself: “He’s projecting his own sense of failure, his own sense of disillusionment, his own cynicism onto Superman,”

Henry, on Superman’s weakness: “[Superman’s] weakness is that he doesn’t want to hurt anyone. He doesn’t want to scare anyone, and in that you can take advantage of him. This is someone who is a complete amateur, and he’s facing up against someone who is very well versed in the arts of war.”
