Ben Affleck

Ben Affleck (full name: Benjamin Geza Affleck) was born on August 15, 1972 in Berkeley, CA. Following his parents split when he was a baby, Affleck moved to the Boston area. He grew up only two blocks away from Matt Damon. He got his start as a child actor on the PBS show “The Voyage of the Mimi.” After graduating Damon’s alma mater, the Cambridge Rindge and Latin School, Affleck attended University of Vermont and Occidental College for a period of time. He landed roles in “School Ties, “Dazed and Confused,” “Mallrats,” and “Chasing Amy” in the 90s. It wasn’t until 1997 when Affleck made a splash with “Good Will Hunting,” which earned him nine Oscar nominations and two wins. This major success opened up the floodgates and opportunities started pouring in including “Armageddon," "Shakespeare in Love,” and “Pearl Harbor.” He directed “Gone Baby Gone” in 2007, starring his brother Casey, and is also known for his involvement in “The Town,” Golden Globe and Oscar winning “Argo,” “Gone Girl,” and “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.” He produced the Emmy-nominated docuseries “Project Greenlight” with Damon. Affleck’s personal life is often front page news. He and Jennifer Lopez, a.k.a. “Bennifer,” were supposed to wed in September 2003, but called off the wedding just four days before they were set to say their “I Dos” and officially split a few months later. Affleck went on to wed another Jennifer, Jennifer Garner. They sent shockwaves through Hollywood when they announced their split in 2015 and eventual divorce filing in April 2017 after a decade of marriage. The former couple has three children – Violet, Seraphina, and Samuel. He has been to rehab to seek treatment for alcohol abuse. There have also been rumors of cheating and a gambling problem.
