Jennifer Garner, 47, and Ben Affleck, 47, may have separated over three years ago but the “13 Going on 30” actress is still doing everything she can for her three children – Violet, 13, Seraphina, 10, and Samuel, 7 – and their father. It is not a secret that Jennifer has been very instrumental in Ben’s struggles with alcoholism.

However, TMZ cameras snapped Ben stumbling out of the UNICEF Masquerade Ball on Oct. 26 in West Hollywood. This, according to reports, was the first time that the “Justice League” star stepped off the sobriety wagon after more than a year since his latest rehab stint.

Ben Affleck was quick to address the reports and admitted sobriety relapse to the press. “It happens, it’s a slip, but I’m not going to let it derail me,” the “Gone Girl” actor said, a day after he was seen walking unsteadily, outside Jennifer Garner’s abode.

It seems like Ben is now moving on from his most recent faux pas when he was seen holding a script in hand on Tuesday. TMZ reported that Jennifer’s former lover has started filming for his new movie called “Deep Water.” However, eagle-eyed fans were quick to notice the actor’s “disheveled look” during the recent sighting.

Ben Affleck, reportedly, looked exhausted and was spotted lighting up a cigarette. At the time, the father of three donned a grimy, stained t-shirt and a pair of sweat pants., which published the actor's "disturbing photos," shared Jennifer Garner’s ex-hubby drank iced coffee and a Coke Zero to energize himself at work. The publication noted it was the first time Ben was seen on the set since his relapse two weeks ago.

The “Argo” actor revealed in October 2018 that he completed a 40-day stay at a treatment center for his battle with alcoholism. Ben has, reportedly, been focusing on his health since. He has also been spending quality time with his three kids, who he shares with Jennifer.

“They both take their job as coparents very seriously,” a source told People about Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner. “While sober, Ben is able to spend more quality time with the kids. It’s exactly how Jen wants things to be,” it went on.
