We don’t really hear much about Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner, primarily because they’re such a quiet couple, one that doesn’t produce a lot of drama. But that’s all changed now that Ben has another smash hit on his hands. The gossip around town is that Ben Affleck is dead set on taking home an Oscar this year and that he’s using every bone in his body to promote Argo — to such an extent that it’s straining his marriage!
According to Gossip Cop, the site geared toward debunking rumors of all kinds, Star Magazine is reporting that Ben and Jen are having “trouble in paradise” after he was seen “acting like a single man” at the GQ Men of the Year event. Gossip Cop is laughing off this story as mere fakery and rumorage; however, I think it’s plausible to consider the situation. The amount of schmoozing required in the pre-Oscar circles is gag-inducing, and it’s very likely that all of Ben’s extracurricular activities could be putting strain on his marriage to Jennifer Garner.
The magazine goes on to allege that Ben “really wants to win an Oscar for this film, and he’s become pretty obsessive about it.” It also claims that Ben and Jen have been spending numerous nights apart. Now that is probably something we can all agree is a truth. Right? Do you think all this pre-Oscar drama is enough to crumble a marriage?
As much as I’d love to have some fiery drama from these two, I have to say that I think Ben and Jen are perfectly fine. Though, I guess we’ll see for sure in the coming months. Just because their marriage is fine now, doesn’t mean that there isn’t a bit of truth to the article. Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below!
