Who was Ben Affleck married to?

Jennifer Garner has previously admitted that Ben was the love of her life and, in an interview with Vanity Fair, she said: "What am I going to do about that? He’s the most brilliant person in any room, the most charismatic, the most generous. He’s just a complicated guy.

"I always say, ‘When his sun shines on you, you feel it. But when the sun is shining elsewhere, it's cold.' He can cast quite a shadow.”

Ben previously admitted that his and Jennifer Garner's divorce was the "biggest regret of [his] life," adding to The New York Times that alcohol played a part in its demise.

Together, Ben and Jennifer Garner share three children – Violet, Seraphina and Samuel Affleck.

Ben and Jennifer Lopez recently confirmed their romance with a steamy kiss.

The snap sees Jennifer dressed in a red and yellow patterned bikini with a mustard robe and a woven hat as she leans into the actor and locks lips.
