10. Falling in Love

According to the Gone Girl star, he and the Electra star fell in love on the set of Daredevil. “That’s where I found my wife. We met on Pearl Harbor, which people hate, but we fell in love on Daredevil,” he said. According to Garner, there was a time when they were filming that Affleck saved her in the most superhero way ever. “One time, actually, on my way over, I got tangled in the wires,” she told E!. “There was such velocity as I was swinging towards the wall, I was about to literally break my face on this brick wall. And Ben came out of nowhere in his Daredevil costume and went whoosh and caught me. Like ‘I got her!’ And I just thought, ‘who else has Ben Affleck as their own personal superhero?’” Interestingly, at the time, Garner was still married to Scott Foley and the two had yet to separate. Also, Affleck was still engaged to Jennifer Lopez. He and Lopez broke up in 2004 and Garner and Foley divorced that same year.
