After marriage troubles that lasted for years, did Ben Affleck’s wandering eye finally cause the split with Jennifer Garner? A new report dives into Ben’s alleged feelings for his ‘Suicide Squad’ co-star, Margot Robbie, and if an affair with her caused Ben and Jen’s divorce!
Was this the last straw? Ben Affleck, 42, and Jennifer Garner, 43, announced their divorce on June 30, one day after their 10th wedding anniversary. With all the reported problems that had their marriage on the rocks, was Ben’s alleged feelings for Margot Robbie, 25, the reason behind Ben and Jen’s break-up?
Ben reportedly “had the hots” for Margot ever since he saw her in The Wolf of Wall Street, reports Woman’s Day. The two of them are working together on the Suicide Squad movie, as Margot is playing the character Harley Quinn, and Ben will appear as Batman. Did Ben start to develop feelings for Margot on set, the same way he fell in love with Jennifer on films like Pearl Harbor and Daredevil?
Not so, claims the Daily Mail. Ben has ‘barely spent any time with Margot,” sources tell Daily Mail. Ben crushing on Margot is not true, the source added, shooting down any rumor of an affair by pointing out that Margot is happily involved with British assistant director Tom Acklerley.
There were many reasons reportedly behind Ben and Jen’s split – from Ben giving up his friends for Jen to him focusing on work and not their family. Whether or not Ben had feelings for Margot, the truth is that his marriage with Jennifer is over. Wow. Batman reportedly having a crush on Harley Quinn? What will Jared Leto’s Joker think about this?
If it wasn’t Margot, was it possible JLo? Ben’s relationship with his ex, Jennifer Lopez, allegedly contributed to the split, according to a report in The Sun. The couple has “stayed in touch via email,” a source told The Sun, and “Jennifer Garner never liked” how the two remained friendly! Yikes.

What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Did Ben develop feelings for Margot or do you think his marriage with Jen ended for a different reason?
