We cannot help but wonder just how Ben Affleck celebrated the New Year’s Eve. The actor was recently spotted looking like a mess as if he has been partying for days. He was also in the company of a mysterious woman who, as we found out, might be by his side in order to keep Affleck away from any destructive substances like alcohol and drugs.
When he was seen, the actor was heading to the film site of his latest project but he seemed super out of it and maybe even drunk.
All in all, Ben looked like he’s been through a war when he stepped out of his car on Friday, January 6.
The actor was also recently spotted having lunch with a detox nurse, Elizabeth Weaver. Her website says that her services include “in-home detox support … 24hr medical in-home detox care and sober companion support for patients recovering from addiction.”
Does Affleck need her assistance? It sure looks like it! Furthermore, the actor was spotted going into a pharmacy in Weaver’s company. We can see the effects of excess on Ben who looked quite bleated and wasted after the holidays and we are glad he is doing his best to keep it under control.
Affleck has been having issues with addiction in the past as well, his split from Garner being caused by his drinking, gambling and rumored affairs. However, his representatives denied that he’s ever cheated on her.
According to a source, Affleck was “just too miserable for anyone to want to hang around” recently. We don’t doubt that!
Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck never actually went through with the divorce and have been trying to fix their marriage by going to counseling and spending a lot of time in the family sphere.
“He’s determined to win her back and is prepared to play a slow and steady game to make it happen,” stated an insider.
Will the detox nurse be able to keep Affleck from his past addictions?
