The last few years have been the hardest in the life of a Hollywood actor. Ben Affleck struggled with alcohol addiction, and then scandalously divorced his ex-wife, who accused him of having an affair with a nanny. Finally, a white streak began in his fate: he met the charming Ana de Armas, who played the Bond girl. Since then, Affleck's life has improved and a couple of lovers enjoy each other's company, staying at home in self-isolation.
It seems that the life of the 47-year-old Hollywood hunk has changed dramatically after meeting 31-year-old actress Ana de Armas. In recent photos from Los Angeles, they laugh and look at each other with loving eyes. Over the past few years, Ben Affleck has looked gloomy and disheveled due to a difficult period of binge drinking and a showdown with his ex-wife.
Ben and Ana met in 2019 on the set of the movie "Underwater" in New Orleans. Since then, they have been inseparable and vacationed together in Costa Rica and in Havana, the actress' hometown. Fans hope that their romance will be the beginning of a new life for Affleck.
Ben Affleck has been struggling with alcohol addiction for a long time. He completed three rehabilitation courses — in 2001, 2017 and 2018. The last time he was taken to a rehabilitation center by his ex-wife Jennifer. Despite everything, the actor has always openly talked about his alcoholic demons on social networks.
He said that he wanted to be cured of alcoholism for the sake of his family and to inspire those who cannot decide to take the first step. Affleck is grateful to his family and friends for their support during that difficult period.
Alcohol addiction was not the only problem of the actor. Rumor has it that one of the main reasons for the divorce from Jennifer Garner was his infidelity with the nanny. Kristina Ozonian, 28, was spotted in Affleck's company at a charity poker tournament in Las Vegas. The actor categorically denied that there was a relationship between him and the nanny, but a few days later the star couple announced their separation. Ben Affleck admitted that he still feels guilty about the divorce. He's not shy about talking about it publicly.The Hollywood handsome man's path to a sober lifestyle was not without difficulties. After his last rehabilitation course in 2018, Ben Affleck hired a personal sobriety mentor and began attending wellness classes at the center for Buddhist Ethics. But in 2019, on Halloween, the actor broke down again and got so drunk that he could barely stand on his feet. The incident hit the media, and Affleck repented, saying that he would redouble his efforts in the fight for a sober lifestyle.
Since then, Ben Affleck has thrown himself into acting. He wants to be a good father and an example for his children, actively participating in their upbringing together with his ex-wife. The actor speaks very positively about his ex-wife, calling her a wonderful mother.
The appearance of Ana in Ben's life affected him in the most positive way. They met on the set of the thriller "Under the Water", where they played spouses.
Ana de Armas is an actress of Cuban-Spanish descent. She became famous after participating in the film "Blade Runner 2049", and for the role of an immigrant nurse in the film "Get Knives" she was nominated for a Golden Globe in the category "Best Actress".
Soon the beauty will appear in the new part of "Bond 25" ("No Time To Die"), where she played the role of CIA agent Paloma. Unfortunately, this film was on the list of those pictures that we will not see in 2020 due to the coronavirus.
Ben Affleck is currently involved in the filming of the movie "Out of the Game", where he plays the role of a basketball coach suffering from alcoholism. The events in the picture vaguely resemble episodes from the actor's real life.Despite the mistakes of the past, the Hollywood hunk gathered his courage and overcame the most difficult period. He lives a sober, full-fledged life, sees his children three times a week and is involved in three or four films. The main thing is that Ben has met a new love that gives him strength and inspiration. We hope that everything will work out between them and Ana, and this fairy tale will have a happy ending.
Previously, divorce among Hollywood celebrities became the subject of discussion in all the media. Now in Hollywood, it seems, a new trend is gaining momentum — to be in a warm relationship with your exes.
