Not all heroes wear capes. People can't help but praise Jennifer Garner for taking Ben Affleck back to rehab after the Justice League star's series of very public outings -- and reported sleepovers -- with a Playboy playmate half his age and growing fears of relapse amid news Ben and Lindsay Shookus broke up after a year of dating.

  • Jennifer went to Ben's house with her bodyguard on August 22 to stage an intervention and get the father of her children help.

    E! News reports Jennifer Garner was "visibly shaken" as one can only imagine someone would be given the situation.

    Ben Affleck and Jennifer were married for 10 years before splitting back in 2015 amid reports the Hollywood actor was unfaithful. Jen officially filed for divorce two years later, though a judge might dismiss their case as neither party has taken the necessary steps to seal the deal. Jennifer and Ben have three children together: daughters Violet, 12, Seraphina, 9, and son Samuel, 6.

    Days ago, outlets started questioning whether Ben was still sober after a photo of him surfaced receiving a food delivery and what looked to be "Johnnie Walker Blue Label scotch whisky in a blue case and some other unidentifiable bottles," People notes.

    Sadly, that looks to be the case as E! News reports Ben started drinking again days ago, prompting the need for him to go back to rehab. "He told Jen and was not resistant. He asked her to take him and she wanted to be there for him," an insider told the publication about Ben's request to go back to a treatment center.

  • This isn't the first time Jennifer has been by Ben's side as the actor has had a longtime battle with alcohol addiction.

    People reports Ben first entered rehab in 2001. He turned heads in March 2017 after announcing he completed treatment in a Facebook post to his fans.

    "I have completed treatment for alcohol addiction; something I've dealt with in the past and will continue to confront," the actor wrote.

    "I want to live life to the fullest and be the best father I can be. I want my kids to know there is no shame in getting help when you need it, and to be a source of strength for anyone out there who needs help but is afraid to take the first step. I'm lucky to have the love of my family and friends, including my co-parent, Jen, who has supported me and cared for our kids as I've done the work I set out to do. This was the first of many steps being taken towards a positive recovery."

  • And people can't help but praise her for getting involved to help save Ben.
