Ben’s in rehab-again :(
As a Masshole, the mid-to late 90’s was all about Ben Affleck and Matt Damon for me. Ben was my favorite being tall, dark and handsome. They were golden, local boys done good. As their careers exploded we had a sense of pride that these were “our” guys and if they could make it then any of us could! Matt seemed to have an easier time adjusting to the money and fame, marrying a civilan and raising his family away from Hollywood. (And, in my opinion, not dating Gwyneth Paltrow helped him immensely). We have watched Ben’s ups and downs and as we all saw two days ago, his wife Jennifer Garner drove him to In and Out then to rehab. I will always have a soft spot for Ben and I truly wish him healing and to get well with sobriety.
