The Oscar winner sat down with the New York Times for an extremely candid interview where he spoke about his marriage to Garner and the disappointing ending. Affleck and Garner were officially divorced in 2018 despite splitting up in 2015. Ben, who has been very open with his addiction to alcohol, admitted that his drinking increased as his marriage fell apart.
“I drank relatively normally for a long time. What happened was that I started drinking more and more when my marriage was falling apart. This was 2015, 2016. My drinking, of course, created more marital problems,” he told the NY Times.
