The actress from Shades Of Blue, who wore a topknot and bold red lipstick, appeared glowing as she stood backstage. Despite a week-long shooting of her NBC show in Manhattan, she looked impressively refreshed. It is uncertain if she went to the musical by herself or with Casper Smart, her beau. During his appearance on the HBO show, Ben disclosed that Jennifer Garner, whom he referred to as his “wife,” helped him revive his career with movies like The Town and Argo after his breakup with Lopez which resulted in a few dismal years.

Total eclipse: The actor said he was regarded as a joke by his peers and public during that era with J.Lo, pictured with him in 2003

During the time when he was dating Jennifer Lopez, the actor revealed that he was not taken seriously by his colleagues and the general public. He stated that he was treated like a laughing stock.

In May, Ben and Garner appeared very close while enjoying a family vacation in Paris with their three kids. Reports suggest that their divorce will be finalized this summer. Although some speculate that the two may reconcile, Jennifer denies any such possibility and seems determined to proceed with the divorce. In a recent interview, Ben expressed his gratitude towards Jennifer for supporting him during his career lows. He revealed that during his relationship with Jennifer Lopez, he faced a lot of criticism from the public and his peers which left him feeling uncool and untalented. Despite being the golden couple of Hollywood, Ben and J.Lo’s relationship ended after two years of engagement, leaving Ben in a miserable low.

Redeeming qualities: Ben told Simmons how Garner lifted him up to where he belongs: 'My wife was really instrumental and helpful in me doing a lot of that work because I was just so focused [on it] and it was harder to balance family and all that'

Ben shared with Simmons the positive attributes of Garner, explaining how she helped him reach his potential. He acknowledged how challenging it was to balance his commitment to his work and his family, but Garner’s support made it possible.

Ridiculed: The 43-year-old talked of his lowest point when Robert Wurl made fun of him in his comedy act: 'He did a whole bit about me that I saw on United Airlines and I [thought],

Ben Affleck shared about his lowest point, during which he was ridiculed by comedian Robert Wurl in one of his comedy acts. In that moment, Ben felt like it couldn’t get any worse. He also mentioned that people used to think he wasn’t cool or talented, and he was at the lowest rung of public consciousness. This was during a time when he had just broken up with Jennifer Lopez and his movies, such as Gigli and Jersey Girl, were box office bombs. The curse of ‘Bennifer’ followed him for some time, but things took a turn for the worse when Robert Wuhl made fun of him in his comedy act that was shown on board United Airlines flights.

Made up his mind: Ben said he decided to 'work harder than everybody else'

Ben stated that he made a firm decision to put in more effort than anyone else. He recounted how a comedian from New Jersey singled him out and targeted him in a comedy routine. This experience led Ben to believe that things couldn’t get any worse. It was then that he realized he wanted to pursue directing, which he believed was a serious profession. Ben adopted the phrase “I’m going to work harder than everyone else” as his personal motto.

Despite mixed reviews from critics, Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice was a box office success with $871 million worldwide earnings, leading to a sequel.
