Ben Affleck made his first public appearance on July 11 since his split from Jennifer Garner at Comic-Con to promote ‘Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice.’ The actor stayed mum about his breakup, but he was still wearing his wedding ring when he stepped up to the stage for the movie’s panel.
Ben Affleck’s Comic-Con appearance on July 11 was his first public appearance since the announcement of his divorce from his wife of ten years, Jennifer Garner, 43. The 42-year-old took the stage at Comic-Con with his Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice co-stars, but we couldn’t take our eyes off his left hand. He was still wearing his wedding ring!
The Oscar-winning director was at Comic-Con to speak about his highly-anticipated role as Batman in 2016’s Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. He didn’t speak about his divorce, but he sent a message without having to say anything at all.
Ben sat beside Henry Cavill, who plays Superman in the film, and flashed his wedding ring. He was photographed wearing it on July 9 as well. The actor was all smiles as he talked about the new film alongside Henry, Gal Gadot, Jesse Eisenberg and more. He was also on hand when a new trailer for the movie was released.
HollywoodLife.com has learned EXCLUSIVELY the reasons why the A-list couple felt they had no choice other than to end their marriage.
“The trouble in their relationship has been brewing for years. The main issue is that Jen wanted to change Ben. She was immensely attracted to Ben from early on and their chemistry back on Daredevil was insane. He was a bad boy but she thought he wanted to put those days behind him and be a doting father and husband. To Ben’s credit, he’s a great dad and he really tried to be a terrific husband but it never came easy to him. After a while those bad habits came back,” an insider told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Is there any chance for a Ben and Jen get back together? Sound off below!
