BeJennifer Lopezn Affleck claims Jennifer Lopez nearly ruined his Hollywood career

Who could ever forget ‘Gigli’, the awful film Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez made during the height of their romance back in 2003? Well, Ben Affleck certainly hasn’t let it go and has finally spoken about their doomed relationship (remember when they were referred to as Bennifer?) and how it almost finished his career in Hollywood.

The 36-year-old ‘Pearl Harbor’ star said:

“I was no longer in control of my life. I thought I wanted certain things, but I didn’t. I got lost. I felt suffocated, miserable and gross. I should never have gone down that route or got sucked in to all the publicity.”

The star added that the relationship was bad for his acting credibility, adding:

“I was typecast as myself. Too many people weren’t getting past what they read about me. That was damaging. I can tell from experience it’s bad for you, and bad for your career. So I took a break, went away for a while and let things calm down.”

But that’s all a thing of the past for Affleck, who has since settled down with Jennifer Garner and has two beautiful children with the actress, four-year-old Violet Ann Affleck and six-month-old Seraphina Rose Elizabeth.
