Ben Affleck is a 48-year-old American actor, film director, producer, screenwriter, and philanthropist. After starting his acting career as a child on the PBS series, “The Voyage of Mimi,” he has since gone on to win many awards, including two Academy Awards and three Golden Globes.
Even at age 48, he’s still a heartthrob to his 4.6 million Instagram followers and you won’t believe how he does it!
That ‘Gone Girl’ Scene-Stealer
Ahead of the movie’s premiere, Affleck had teased “some brief nudity” in the film, saying, “David said to me from the beginning, ‘This is a warts-and-all movie. It can have no vanity. You have to see the naked underbelly of this character. It’s gotta be like in Europe; they just don’t give a s–t about any of that stuff and they just play real people.'”
Diet & Exercise
The “Good Will Hunting” star has faced some serious physical challenges to stay fit for his roles, including gaining an extra 24 lbs of solid muscle in only four months for his “Batman” role.
In addition to performing some serious heavy lifting exercises, Affleck also made sure to clean up his diet.
Although he carefully watched the sodium he consumed, he ate about six meals a day, with a macronutrient breakdown of roughly 45% carbs, 35% protein, and 20% fat.
That means consuming a lot of healthy proteins, like egg whites for breakfast and salmon for dinner, along with a lot of healthy leafy green vegetables.
There are rumors that he has once again ignited sparks with his old flame, Jennifer Lopez, as the two were caught smooching at her gym, Anatomy Fitness, in Miami.
A source at the scene described their interaction, saying, “They went to do their workouts with separate trainers, but were not trying to hide their relationship by any means. They stayed close to each other while working out and were hugging, being playful together, and shared a kiss in between sets. It was clear to everyone that they have intense chemistry and were having fun together.”
“[They] looked like two people who are super comfortable and familiar with each other, who are also in the honeymoon phase and in love. They were having a good time. Jennifer works out every day and it’s part of her routine and it seemed like Ben really wanted to be there too with her.”
Considering how time-consuming exercising can be, it’s great to see the pair incorporating some couple’s time into their busy schedules!
