Ben Affleck was once married to Jennifer Garner: Inside the actor's lengthy dating history!
Five years since his split from ex-wife Jennifer Garner, Ben Affleck is suddenly back, pointing fingers at Garner for his miseries and even his alcoholism. Fans are pissed at Affleck and have taken on social media to backlash against the Daredevil actor. On The Howard Stern Show, Affleck made some brow-raising remarks about his marriage with Garner and the actress herself.
Benjamin Géza Affleck-Boldt, 49, is a filmmaker, producer, screenwriter, actor and two Academy Award-winner. Ben won his first Oscar very early in his career in 1998 for Good Will Hunting; the second one came a few years later in 2003 for Argo. But Affleck doesn't have it all. Despite his overtly successful career, Ben's personal life is trademarked by his failed marriage and relationships.

Does the word "Bennifer" ring a bell? Well, it has come alive again; we mean the persons associated with it. Yes, it's 20 years later, and Affleck and pop star Jennifer Lopez have rekindled their long-buried romance. The two kept it pretty low until the Oscar winner decided to gush about Lopez publicly recently.

"I am in awe of what Jennifer's effect on the world is," Ben said in a recent interview. He went on to say, "At most, as an artist, I can make movies that move people. Jennifer has inspired a massive group of people to feel they have a seat at the table in this country." Affleck and Lopez first started dating in 2002.
Bennifer's film, Gigli, had just hit the screen and was pronounced dud. Soon, Lopez went public with Ben after she filed for divorce from her second-husband, Criss Judd. The pair were engaged in November, and the wedding date was set for September 2003. But the couple never walked down the aisle. "Excessive media attention" around their relationship was cited as the reason for their split.

Affleck and Lopez were rumored to be dating again this April when the actor was spotted in a white SUV to visit Lopez.
