Calm Down Everyone, Ben Affleck Won't Cheat With New Wonder Woman

GossipMonger 2

It seems like the second Israeli model Gal Gadot was cast as Wonder Woman in the upcoming Batman vs. Superman film, rumors began to fly about how she and a certain male co-star will absolutely, definitely hook up based on the fact that ... they're both pretty, I guess?

Yes, I'm talking about Ben Affleck, who will be playing Batman and working closely alongside Gal. According to reports, Ben's wife Jennifer Garner is NOT happy about this casting choice and doesn't trust Ben, who is the father of their three children and to whom she has been married since 2005.

Can we all take a deep breath and think for a moment? This is not the first time mags have speculated that Ben will cheat on his way too nice, way too low-key wife. Any time he comes within 10 feet of a starlet who has that Angelina Jolie-type ferocity in her (Blake Lively and Emily Ratajkowski are just two examples), everyone goes wild and assumes the man can't control himself.

But this is really about painting Jen as the next Jennifer Aniston, isn't it? Her sweetness just invites this kind of annoying speculation. No one can imagine why a man would be content to be married to a lovely woman and mom who sometimes leaves the house without makeup (like, really without makeup, and not Selena Gomez-without makeup). 

It's silly and immature. It's also naive to assume that Ben's only opportunities to cheat come from meeting women on movie sets. The man probably has women falling at his feet each time he visits a pharmacy to pick up diapers or fulfill a prescription. And don't forget, Jen is pretty gorgeous and has had many an opportunity herself, I'm sure.

And, although I know little about Gal, other than the fact that she starred in the Fast & Furious film series and is married with a child, why is the assumption that she is looking for love instead of just trying to further her career, like any other working actress? It's annoying enough that Wonder Woman can't star in a movie of her very own. Must we also assume that the actress who plays her needs a man with star power to elevate her to the next level in Hollywood?

Sigh. Ben, don't prove me wrong here. 

What do you think of the new Wonder Woman? Do you think Jen should be scared that Ben will cheat with her?

I admit, I do not have great instincts about who will or won't cheat: More often than not, the "least likely" end up shattering my faith (naivete?), and the "most likely" end up in rock-solid, loyal relationships. I will say, though, that my intuition about individuals is not too shabby: I don't necessarily believe that Jennifer Garner is all sweetness and light (nobody is!), nor do I think that Ben is innately a cad. So I guess it all evens out: Ben won't cheat; I doubt that Jen is worried; and hey, Gal is married too, right? The elements that might create a ripe situation for cheating are there, but I don't think that the players are at all interested or concerned.

This is just the media trying to stir up stories. if I were Ben I would be pissed that people act like he can't be around other beautiful women without thinking about cheating. He has a gorgeous wife. They are beautiful together & I like to think that on top of good looks, charm & acting talent, that Ben has some intelligence as well. I get really tired of the Hollywood tabloids always trying to stir up trouble for the married stars. As for Jennifer Garner being sweet just like Jennifer Aniston, I agree that they are both sweet and great catches. Brad Pitt chose wrong in my opinion & the lucky man who ends up with and keeps jennifer Aniston will be extremely lucky, just like Ben is lucky to call the beautiful Jennifer Garner his wife.
