Despite the very fact Ben had earned an Oscar for Argo, a movie concerning the Iranian hostage disaster, he encountered challenges as his relationship with Jennifer Garner collapsed and his alcohol dependancy worsened. Ben had been out and in of rehab a lot of occasions over the course of his life. In truth, Jennifer even drove him to rehab once.
According to the Academy Award winner, it was the movie, Batman versus Superman, his issues making Justice League, in addition to his private life that pushed him over the sting of the cliff of dependancy. These days, he’s doing rather a lot higher, like his profession, however he’s extra cautious.
