Ben Affleck Admits Divorcing Jennifer Garner Was The “Biggest Regret” Of His Life In A Tell-All Interview

In a candid interview, Ben Affleck confesses that his divorce from Jennifer Garner was his “worst mistake.”

Divorce is traumatic not just because of the exhausting divorce settlements that follow, but also due to the profound emotional and mental agony that is created. The divorce of former Hollywood couple Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner was well reported, and while the couple and their kids attempted to avoid the media spotlight, all desired to know how they felt about it and what it meant for their kids.

The couple, who had 3 kids together, announced the breakup of their 10-year marriage on June 30, 2015. The announcement was followed by accusations that Affleck was having an affair with their nanny. The divorce was completed in 2018 after the pair attempted but failed to resolve their differences.

The 47-year-old actor spoke out to the New York Times about his heartbreaking divorce. He stated that, while he felt bad, he had moved on from the embarrassment. This divorce is his worst regret in life. Shame is quite harmful. Shame has no good side effects. It’s simply a nasty, awful feeling of poor self-worth and self-loathing, the Good Will Hunting star explained.

He said that his drinking problem had led to the breakdown of his marriage. For a long period, he drank quite routinely. When his marriage was going apart, he began drinking more and more. This was in 2015 and 2016. Certainly, his drinking exacerbated their marital troubles, the dad of three explained.

One is attempting to make oneself feel better by eating, drinking, having sex, gambling, shopping, or whatever. However, this just makes matters worse. Then one does more of it to alleviate the discomfort. Then the true agony begins. It becomes a vicious cycle that is impossible to escape. At least, that’s what occurred to him, he continued.

The actor also admits to making errors in the past, which he greatly regrets. Nevertheless, he also noted that he recognizes it is pointless to mourn over his damaged past. It’s not really good for him to dwell about his failures, his relapses and beat himself up, he explained.

He is sure he has made errors. He has undoubtedly done things he is sorry about. But one has to get back up, learn from it, learn some more, and attempt to go forward.

Though their marriage did not work out as well as he would have hoped, Affleck has never backed away from openly thanking Jennifer Garner for trying her best to provide a loving environment for their 3 kids, dubbing her “the world’s finest parent.”

They get along well, co-parenting and spending time together on a regular basis. Life doesn’t always turn out the way one wants it to. They’re doing their best and prioritizing their children. That’s how they’re approaching their daily lives, Affleck stated.
