Ben Affleck

Pays $60 For Cup Of Starbucks Coffee

11/10/2013 12:15 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Ben Affleck needs his morning coffee -- HE NEEDS IT -- and this week, he proved he's willing to take on a $58 parking ticket to get his hands on a quick shot of the dark stuff.

Affleck and his wife Jennifer Garner rolled up to a Starbucks in Brentwood this week -- but couldn't find a spot to park ... so they risked it and put their Lexus in a yellow zone.

Everybody knows .. the yellow zone is for loading and unloading only, 5 minutes max. But the Afflecks went long ... and a vigilant parking enforcement officer slapped the car with a $58 ticket.

But did the Afflecks care? Nope ... 'cause when you're rich and you're jonesing for caffeine, you'd probably pay a helluva lot more than that.

Just to clarify it for everyone TMZ. Remember the voice at the airports that never stops: "The WHITE zone is for the immediate loading and unloading of passengers and baggage only....there is NO parking in the white zone". The YELLOW zone is for commercial vehicles that have gotten their licence plates modified at the DMV. So delivery drivers/process servers etc....can legally park in the YELLOW ZONE! Otherwise the only timed parking is the GREEN curbs and its normally 10-20minutes. YW, M

He truly believes yellow spots were created just for him. Oh the delirium of entitlement

Wish these self indulgent celebs would ditch the paper cups and buy a reusable one. All of those cups, every day ......... these two alone are responsible for a small forest!

Should have towed it. 58 dollars is chump change for them. Ben will probably continue to do it. Next time, have the tow truck ready and handy!

Well, well, well, you married a movie star as a wife, the next thing you know, she is so freaking spoiled, and you got to run out to coffee shop for your morning coffee fix.

Well, I suppose MJ got it right, why bother getting married? He just paid for the sex that he wanted, and slept with somebody who was too young and a male that would in no ways make you coffee, after crazy wild illegal sex.

On the bright side he wasn't making more bad movies to inflict upon the public.

This is dumb. But, even dumber was Jerry Seinfeld in the 1990s, While doing "Seinfeld," when he needed his daily bagels from a place and got a $250 parking ticket every day! Yes! In the '90s! I heard Seinfeld talk about this during an interview once.

This Ben Affleck seems like a pretty down to earth guy. He could be driving a Bentley, Rolls Royce, something flashy. Seems like a class act. Remember when would tool around town with J-Lo all blinged out. That wasn't him. So what, I've parked in the five minute spaces to run in the bank. Stop being jealous folks.
