Talking about Affleck’s marriage to Lopez, the source said that the Hustlers got the “recovered” and “better” version of the 51-year-old actor, while his ex-wife had to deal with him at his “worst”.

The insider said,

“Jen had to deal with him at his worst. She put in the hard work and gave the unconditional love Ben needed at his lowest points, and J. Lo got the recovered, better Ben. It’s painful to think about, but Jen holds no grudges.”

Although the Good Will Hunting star’s ex and current wife aren’t best of friends, “they are in a better place,” according to a second source.

Ben Affleck started drinking “more and more” amid marital troubles

The two-time Oscar winner has been candid about his addiction woes for years now. However, in 2020 he spoke about how his public split from Jennifer Garner had influenced his drinking habits.

Speaking to the New York Times, the now 51-year-old said,

“I drank relatively normally for a long time. What happened was that I started drinking more and more when my marriage was falling apart. This was 2015, 2016. My drinking, of course, created more marital problems.”

The star, who is sober now, also called his divorce from Garner, “the biggest regret” of his life.
