We’ve all loved Ben Affleck at one point or another, and it is impossible to argue the guy’s talent–maybe more so for directing than acting–but he’s like a great athlete who always gets injured. And there’s always an excuse. The whole Jennifer Lopez thing… Ben said he just lost his mind, and sense of self. The terrible movies around the turn of the century…a string of bad luck. Now, he’s in the headlines nearly every day, and none of it’s good. Is he having a mid-life crisis? Her are six signs that it might be the case.
6. Plastic Surgery Rumors
It’s never a good thing when you’ve just played Batman to be associated with plastic surgery rumors, or gossip sites pointing out that it looks like you’ve jumped on the Botox train. Do we believe it? Eh. The evidence is shaky. The fact is, before and after comparisons are of a bearded Ben who doesn’t seem to care much for his appearance versus a clean shaven, well put together Ben. But… there is Ben’s past. The Ben Affleck before Armageddon, when he had slight gaps in his teeth, which he obviously felt were unsightly for a leading man. He got those suckers capped with some pearly whites. And if any of the present rumors about his being back on the prowl for ladies are true, it’s not that difficult to believe that Ben might have hopped into the chair for a little facial rejuvenation. We’ll say the jury is out on this one.
