Ben Affleck hasn’t been in the best shape for a while now when it comes to his personal life,and one of the biggest problems is that his toxic personal life is starting to spill over into his career as well. Yet, it seems that with the right help, Affleck may be able to get his life back on track.
Examples of how Affleck’s life was spiraling out of control come in the form of his 10 year marriage ending in 2015 by separation and formally ending in 2017. This split was very public exposing Affleck’s supposed infidelity, potential harassment, alcoholism, and depression.
In an interview with Diane Sawyer, Affleck stated that he is trying to correct his wrongs, and get his life back on track. He states that he is able to do this now with the help of a man who has been down the same road before, to the point where he was even black listed from Hollywood. That man being the ever amazing Robert Downey Jr.
Affleck stated to Sawyer that his two biggest supporters with is sobriety are that of Robert Downey Jr. and Bradley Cooper.
“…You know, guys I found like Bradley [Cooper] and Robert [Downey Jr.] have been really helpful to me and really supportive, and they’re wonderful men.”
These are both stars that have been through similar phases in their lives, yet they managed to pull through and now their careers are bigger and better than ever. So hopefully Affleck will be able to get it all together and become the man he wishes he could be, all support to Affleck in this harrowing time.
