On the Howard Stern Show on Monday, Ben Affleck got candid about his struggles with drinking while married to Jennifer Garner.
“I’d probably still be drinking. It’s part of why I started drinking…because I was trapped,” Ben said of feeling unhappy in his marriage to Garner. “I was like ‘I can’t leave ’cause of my kids, but I’m not happy, what do I do?’ What I did was drink a bottle of scotch and fall asleep on the couch, which turned out not to be the solution.” Several sites noted that Ben threw Jennifer under the bus with this comment even after knowing SHE was the one that helped him get into rehab after the split. But Ben wasn’t having it – on Jimmy Kimmel, he set the record straight.
