Batman V Superman star Ben Affleck and his wife of nearly 10 years Jennifer Garner announced their split earlier this year, but their separation has not come in the way of their friendship. Affleck has often been spotted spending time with Garner and their three children, proving that you can have a normal relationship with your ex.
But according to a new Radar Online report, one of the main reasons why Affleck is hanging out with his ex is because his friends have been avoiding him. "Ben is just too miserable for anyone to want to hang around," a friend of the actor told Radar Online. The publication noted that it has become difficult for him to even get a hot date. "He can't find anyone interested in him with all his baggage," said the friend.
Reportedly, Affleck's friend Matt Damon has been introducing the Batman V Superman actor to girls, but nothing seems to be working out, as Affeck is said to have lost his confidence. "He's been introducing him [Affleck] to girls, but Ben's lost his confidence and women are just turned off," said the friend, adding that it doesn't help that "Ben's a total wreck right now, working way too hard and looking really bad. Even Jen has told him he looks tired and grumpy at the moment â€” and she's one-hundred percent right."
In March, Garner opened up to Vanity Fair about her split from Affleck revealing that it wasn't an easy decision to part ways. "He's the most brilliant person in any room, the most charismatic, the most generous. He's just a complicated guy. I always say, 'When his sun shines on you, you feel it.' But when the sun is shining elsewhere, it's cold. He can cast quite a shadow," she said.
