According to a report from People.com, Ben Affleck, just a few days after he purportedly appeared intoxicated at a Halloween party, feels not so bad about the fact he recently relapsed. Sources close to the actor explained to the outlet that Ben isn’t really making excuses for himself; it is what it is.
Just a day after he supposedly relapsed, the actor appeared at Jennifer Garner’s house to make amends for what he did. The insider who spoke with People Magazine described Ben as “very honest” about not being a perfect guy, and he didn’t make any excuses for what he did.
The insider added that Ben is committed to his goal of sobriety, and hopes he’ll be able to quit alcohol at some point in his life. The source explained that Bradley “wants to be the best dad to his kids.”
As it was previously reported, the 47-year-old actor was seen attending the UNICEF Masquerade Ball in West Hollywood on Saturday night.
A video obtained by TMZ showed Mr. Affleck appearing drunk, as he stumbles into a vehicle after leaning up against another. A woman hugs the actor while he wears a mask at the start of the footage. Obtained by TMZ, another video purports to show the actor saying to Jennifer that relapses “happen,” but he wasn’t going to let it get in his way.
An insider who spoke with People Magazine stated that the 47-year-old was concerned about Affleck, but she’ll continue to be on his team. They have three children together, including Samuel, Seraphina, and Violet, who are 7, 10, and 13, respectively.
Just a few hours before the party on Saturday night, Ben took to his social media to talk about how he had been in recovery for an entire year, and also cracked some jokes about recent reports regarding his dating profile on Raya.
But in all seriousness, the actor began, he would be making a donation to help others battle addiction, especially for those who don’t have the means to do so.
