Hey we've all been there. The spouse, the kids, the nagging. We have had our entire careers riding on our directorial debut. Well scratch that last thing. While the wifey was out of town, and after his successful screening of Gone Baby Gone in Chicago, Life & Style is reporting that Ben Affleck was spotted drinking. In public. In a bar. No more of the only one or two people saw him so have to make it a blind item. Ben got hammered. Drunk I tell you. Wine, Guinness and was the last person left standing (barely) in the bar.
While drinking at the Four Seasons Hotel bar, Ben was extremely chatty and found plenty of people who wanted to chat back. I bet he did. All that drinking makes the playground that much tougher the next day my friend. That bright sun, beating into your eye sockets, kids screaming into your sensitive ears. Wife not talking to you for hours. (Well that can actually be a blessing.)
Ben if you recall, spent some time in Promises for an alcohol problem back in 2001. Guess he solved it.
