Ben Affleck’s judgement day will be next Friday with his much anticipated movie, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice releasing but he still has a lot on his mind with his recent divorce.
The actor says he is “fine” with his ex-wife Jennifer Garner’s recent tell-all interview about their split, in which she also addressed his rumoured affair with their nanny.
Affleck, 43, and Garner announced their split a day after their 10-year anniversary in June 2015. It was reported that Affleck had an affair with the family’s 28-year-old nanny Christine Ouzounian.
In the interview, Garner, 43, had called Affleck the love of her life, and tagged the nanny incident as “bad judgment” on the part of her husband.
When asked about his view on Garner’s interview, Affleck said, “It’s fine. She’s allowed to talk about it. 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’.”
This is the first time that Affleck has spoken about their much-publicised and shocking separation. The actor was all praise for Garner.
“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,” Affleck told New York Times in an interview.
The 43-year-old star, however, refused to discuss his family life or the details of his divorce from former Daredevil co-star.
“Because it ends up being in the record somewhere, in the great miasma of junk on the internet.”
The father of three also responded to Ricky Gervais’ Golden Globe joke in which the comedian called Matt Damon as “the only person who Ben Affleck hasn’t been unfaithful to.”
The actor laughed, “It’s the way Ricky Gervais perceives me, I suppose. Whatever. I’ve had jokes made at my expense before. It’s part of the deal.”
