Why Didn’t Blake Lively And Ben Affleck Pose Together On The NBR Gala Red Carpet?

The Town co-stars kept their distance at the National Board of Review gala, perhaps because Jen Garner was there to keep an eye on her hubby!

Adding fuel to the rumor mill fire last night were Blake Lively and Ben Affleck, who both attended the National Board of Review of Motion Pictures Gala in NYC but did not pose together for photos. Jennifer Garner was also in attendance to support Ben and perhaps keep tabs on the competition.

It would have been standard procedure for The Town co-stars to say cheese for the red carpet photogs but instead they purposefully kept their distance. That only makes us wonder if B&B are trying a little too hard to quash the reports that they got a little too cosy on the set of their gritty thriller, forcing Jen to make more set visits than she might if Ben was starring alongside Rob Schneider.

The pair’s infamously flirty banter for Interview magazine, back in September 2010 coupled with their intimate behind-the-scenes photos taken while filming The Town, made for much speculation as to whether they’d had an affair. We’ll see how the chemistry between Blake and Ben progresses throughout awards season, but Gossip Girl would most definitely have something to say about the new B in Jen’s bonnet.

Blake is a homewrecker. From her agent HW, Ben Affleck, Ryan Reynolds, Ryan GOsling and no Leo de Caprio – she’s just trying super hard to penetrate the A listers become famous. Dosnt even care if they are married or have kids. Well you know hon, you’re just NOT talented and cannot speak without sounding your mouth is full of marbles. She’s seriously creepy and i am fed up with her sticking her boobs in my face all the time.

dude, laineygossip has been explicit in her assertions that Blake did some dirty things to get that role in the town. Ben affleck has one of the worst womanizer reputations in the industry, gwyneth said after breaking up with him that his ideal woman is a blonde in a bikini who pours beer on her big chest. He had an affair with his current wife WHILE cheatin on his then gf, Jennifer Lopez on the set of Daredevil. Please, let’s not act like this is hard to believe. And there’s been dirty gossip about Blake ever since she became Weinstein’s little pet project, he has a LONG history of picking nubile young starlets to “mold”(who in turn becomes his unofficial jump off) and he’s favored Blake for months now. People stop being naive, Blake is an ambitious girl and she does what she needs to to seperate from the pack, and she’s HARDLY the first or last starlet to do so.

yeah, ben did have an affair with jen garner when he was still with J. Lo. He also has gambling and drinking problems, it’s not like he’s shown the best judgement ever.

Why didn’t Blake & Jon Hamm pose together, why didnt Ben & Jon pose together. Didnt it occur to you that maybe they all arrived at different times. this “blake is a homewrecker” bandgwagon is getting ridiculous!

Obviously Blake is so man hungry she is rumored to have an affair with everyone, so far: her co-star in the Green Lantern (Ryan Reynolds) Ryan gosling (ice cream at Disney, dates following) Leo Dicaprio (lunch in NY, party at Jeremy Renner’s). She is getting quite the ho label. BTW, its not true she didnt pose with Ben,there are pictures on another website (popsugar). So you spoke too soon. This is such a non story.
