Rare is the Hollywood actor whose personal life is more dramatic than the roles he plays onscreen.
In the case of Ben Affleck, the gap is so wide that we wish he’d put this Batman nonsense to rest and focus on producing a livestreaming, 24-hour, Truman Show-esque documentary about his day-to-day existence.
Last week, Ben was in a motorcycle accident while rushing to meet his family at church.
(If that doesn’t sound like a superhero origin story, we don’t know what does.)
Now, it seems Jennifer Garner is deeply concerned about her ex’s safety and has strongly encouraged her ex to put the bike on blocks.
And by “strongly encouraged,” we mean she went off on him in front of the other soccer moms.
Yes, it seems the exes were watching their 5-year-old son Samuel on the field when Jen flipped on Ben seemingly out of nowhere.
“She doesn’t want her kids to grow up without a dad,” one insider tells Radar Online.
“Jen believes he’s being incredibly childish and selfish,” the source adds.
“She believes he needs to start acting more like a dad and less like a kid.”
The source adds that the battle of Jen vs. Ben was a mostly one-sided affair.
“Jen emptied out on Ben, and he seemed to be on the offensive,” the onlooker claims.
“She only seemed to calm down when Samuel got close to them.”
It seems part of the reason Garner was so upset is the fact she simply doesn’t approve of Affleck’s relationship with Lindsay Shookus, the SNL producer whom he’s been dating for over a year.
“Jen’s fed up with Ben’s behavior – especially since they agreed to divorce,” one insider tells Radar.
“She doesn’t like Lindsay and says she’s a bad influence on him.”
There’s no word on why Jen doesn’t approve of Lindsay, but it’s not hard to guess.
After all, shortly after Affleck and Shookus were spotted drinking together, he checked into rehab for the third time in a year.
Apparently, Garner recently went so far as to issue an ultimatum:
“She told him to clean up his act or stay away from the kids,” says the source.
But just because Jen doesn’t approve of Ben’s new girlfriend, that doesn’t mean she’s not ready to move on herself.
Radar recently published photos of Jen on what apears to be a date with an unidentified mystery man.
No one seems to have any information on who Jen’s new love interest is, but she certainly seems to be into him!
So these days, Ben and Jen have both moved on with someone new … but it doesn’t seem like they’ll be easing up on one another anytime soon.
