Jennifer Lopez isn't happy with Ben Affleck's recent interview about his ex-wife Jennifer Garner.
While discussing his divorce from Garner during an interview, Affleck seemed to pin his struggles with sobriety on his ex.
He said, “Part of why I started drinking was because I was trapped. I was like, ‘I can’t leave because of my kids, but I’m not happy, what do I do?’ And what I did was drank a bottle of Scotch and fell asleep on the couch, which turned out not to be the solution.”
Sources saysLopez "is pissed. She is getting pulled into this because she is dating him. She doesn’t want to be dragged into this.”
Ben sat down with Jimmy Kimmel last night to say that his comments about starting drinking while feeling "trapped" in his marriage to Jennifer Garner were taken out of context and made him out to be "the worst, most insensitive, stupid, awful guy."
Ben said his Tuesday interview with Howard Stern was, "really cool, like long-form, in-depth," but he wasn't ready for the ensuing backlash.
He tells Kimmel, "We talked a lot about my family, you know, alcoholism, struggling with real things, how you have to be accountable and loving, how I work with my ex-wife, how I'm so proud of the way we work together for our kids, the best that we can for them.
"I was thrilled. I thought, "Wow, I should do more honest, exploratory, self-evaluating things." Then I start seeing all this stuff come up on Twitter. And I was like, what is this?"
Affleck was furious that the media had reportedly twisted his words and made him appear as though he was criticizing his ex.
"I saw one of these websites had done the click bate thing - "You won't believe what he said, click on this, come to our site." I looked on it, and they had literally taken the conversation that I had had for two hours and made it seem as if I was saying the exact opposite of what I had said.
"I had gone on, said how much we respected each other, cared about each other, cared about our kids, put them first. It said that I had blamed my ex-wife for my alcoholism, that I was trapped in this marriage, just made me out to be the worst, most insensitive, stupid, awful guy.
"It hurts my feelings."
