Ben Affleck Was Once Photographed With Co-Star Blake Lively So Obviously He's a Cheater

Have you heard the latest gossip about Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner's divorce? Apparently, Ben flirted with Blake Lively when they were filming The Town in 2009. Do you need proof? They were photographed together! It's so obvious, right?


Look, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner obviously had problems in their marriage -- otherwise they wouldn't have split up. No happy marriage ended in divorce, as Louis C.K. would say. But to try to dredge something up from six years ago to pinpoint blame on one party or another? That's just lame.

Just for kicks, I asked what the celebs involved with the situation thought, and I got a bunch of eye rolls. P.S. -- I only asked them in my imagination, but I'm pretty sure these would've been the reactions had I actually been able to really ask them.

Blake was too busy breastfeeding baby James and hiding her from public view to give a hoot.

Jennifer Garner thought, seriously? Drop it, you guys -- we have kids together. 

Ryan Reynolds -- you know him, he's Blake Lively's hubby -- said, "What do I care, I was married to Scarlett Johansson at that point anyway. So nice try trying to bring me into this."

ScarJo asked, "How did I end up in this conversation?"

OK, so obviously the demise of Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner's marriage probably had nothing to do with a rumored flirtation with Blake Lively. They tried to make their marriage work, and it didn't. Let's just all move on.
