Ben Affleck And Daughter Seraphina Get Ready To Surprise Jennifer Garner For Mother's Day

On Friday Ben Affleck and his youngest daughter Seraphina stopped by Brentwood Country Mart, and if we had to guess, we'd say these two were planning something special for Jennifer Garner this Sunday!

Ben is back in town after spending a few weeks in Detroit shooting Batman vs. Superman, but unfortunately for Jen, it looks like filming will be going a little longer than expected on the superhero flick.

Last week Entertainment Weekly reported that the shooting schedule for Batman "has forced a delay" in Ben's upcoming Prohibition-era crime drama Live by Night because Warner Bros moved the Batman release date from summer 2015 to May 6, 2016.

Hmm, that's not exactly good news!




Big Ben Gets Low And Fills Up His Tank

Ben Affleck gas station tired chevelle vintage classic batman

Ben Affleck's vintage Chevelle is pretty cool, but we're guessing the 6'4" actor isn't a big fan of bending over every time he fills up his tank at the pump!

Yesterday X17 photographers snapped the hunky Batman vs. Superman star gassing up in Los Angeles, and is it just us, or is he totally getting better with age? Does Jennifer Garner realize how lucky she is? Sigh...

In other news, Ben doesn't seem too concerned about his recent card counting scandal, and it actually sounds like the whole thing got a bit blown out of proportion. According to a source or the Los Angeles Times, the Hard Rock casino told the actor that he was banned from playing blackjack, but welcome to play any other game and always welcome to stay at the hotel. And get this: Apparently in Nevada it's legal to count cards, but it's also legal for casinos to bar apparent counters from their tables.

Either way, maybe Ben should focus on acting and directing and/or his family?




Report: Ben Affleck Is Under Investigation For Counting Cards In Las Vegas

May 2, 2014 02:45 PM

An all-points bulletin has been issued to Las Vegas’ biggest casinos which accuses superstar Ben Affleck of counting cards, reports Radar.

According to an alert from a local security firm, the Academy Award winner was barred from play at the Hard Rock Casino shortly after 10 p.m. on April 28, “due to moving his money with the count."

There were rumors in the past that Affleck had some gambling problems -- but we thought that he conquered that issue. Unfortunately, it sounds like the husband and father of three is still messing around with lady luck.

Radar is also reporting that the alert claims that Affleck “uses perfect basic,” which is a term for introductory card counting, “but also takes insurance according to the count. Uses black $100 cheques to keep track of the count while playing.”

On April 29th another alert regarding Affleck was issued to all the major casinos in Vegas, explaining that the Argo actor was, “currently suspected of advantage play."

According to the alleged document, “He has been observed playing blackjack at multiple Las Vegas Strip properties, and is suspected of moving his wagers with the count. He was reportedly backed off at one off-Strip casino,” which is in reference to the previously mentioned incident at the Hard Rock Casino.

It looks like troubling has been brewing in this area for a while. An April 22, Rob Olivetti, Games Protection Manager at the Wynn and Encore casinos, allegedly sent an internal email that said, “Ben Affleck (the actor) … Was informed that he was being way too obvious moving his money with the count. He was spreading $100 -10K on the double decks and $0-20K (2@10K) on the shoe games. As of now, he is still being allowed to play per casino management.” Apparently Affleck isn't quite the smooth operator he thought he was, because a week later the all-points bulletin barring him from play was put into action.

Uh ... none of this sounds good to us! Clearly, Benji never saw Rain Man!




Ben Affleck Takes A Break From Shooting Batman And Returns To His Family

Well, we're not sure where his family actually was, but Ben Affleck is certainly happy to be back in Los Angeles!

On Thursday the handsome actor bundled up and ran errands in Larchmont Village, and he's back this week from filming Batman vs. Superman in Michigan. Ben left for Detroit earlier this month to shoot the flick with co-stars Henry Cavill and Gal Gadot, but we're guessing he's headed back within the next few days to continue production on the blockbuster.

While we're fans of Big Ben (especially in a superhero suit!), one star in Hollywood still isn't feeling the casting choice. When asked on who his favorite Batman would be, Tom Hardy, who starred as Bane in The Dark Knight Rises, told Hollywood Life, "I’ve already worked with Batman. Christian [Bale] was my Batman, I’m very loyal."

Ben Affleck Lives Up To The Hype In First Gone Girl Trailer

Apr 15, 2014 10:15 AM


Ben Affleck may be gearing up for Batman, but this is the movie of his that we're most excited to see!!

The first trailer for Gone Girl has hit the web, and Ben stars as Nick Dunne, whose wife Amy goes missing on their fifth wedding anniversary. While Nick is the prime suspect, not everything is what it seems, and there are all sorts of twists and turns in the plot.

The trailer for the big screen adaptation of Gillian Flynn's bestselling novel is set to Elvis Costello's cover of the song "She," and if you've read the book, you'll be pleased to see several key scenes come to life in this clip. (You know, his creepy grin at the press conference, the panties at his office...)

"I don’t want to give away too much, because if you know the book, you know that there are set of reveals that you would want to maintain the integrity of," Ben told Entertainment Weekly the other day. "But I will say that Gillian adapted it and I think it’s very, very faithful to her book. If you read the book and liked it, you will definitely like the movie."

Neil Patrick Harris, Emily Ratajkowski and Tyler Perry also star in the David Fincher-directed film, which hits theaters on October 3.




Ben Affleck Hits The Gym To Beef Up For Batman Vs. Superman

Apr 11, 2014 02:12 PM

Ben Affleck always looks good, but his bod is going to get even more shredded over the next few weeks!

Ben has been prepping for his role in the new Batman flick by pumping iron and working out with Rehan Jalali, who got the sexy star in tip top shape for his role in The Town back in 2010. It's not like Ben is parading around in a tank top, but we can definitely tell that his biceps have gotten significantly beefier.

So when does Ben start shooting? Wife Jennifer Garner chatted with Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday and revealed that her hubby is leaving her behind this weekend! “I get home Friday, and then, he leaves that day for Batman.” Jen didn't say that Ben was heading to Detroit, but several sites are reporting that as a filming location, and the Israeli website Ynet reports that new Wonder Woman Gal Gadot has already left for Michigan.

But when's he coming home? We're going to start having serious withdrawals...




Ben Affleck Flexes His Hands-On Daddy Muscles

Trying to prove a point, are we?!

Ben Affleck took daughter Seraphina to breakfast at the Brentwood Country Mart this morning, and it seems the A-list actor is enjoying being on daddy duty while wife Jen Garner works!

Speaking of Jen G, the actress made an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon last night and chatted all about the difference between being mom and being dad in their household.

"We are divided down a very mom-dad[line]. If it has to do with making food, or homework, or anything that has to do with actually functioning… That's a Mom thing. Sorry, it's true. Then, coming in just as you're getting them to bed and picking them up by their heels and swinging them around, that's a Dad thing. Anything fun, that is Ben," she joked to the talk show host.

It looks like the Argo star is handling the kids pretty well by himself!




Ben Affleck And His Adorable Son Samuel Are Twinsies

Ben Affleck went to Brentwood Country Mart with Seraphina and Samuel bright and early on Wednesday morning, and we don't know who's cuter -- Ben or his darling little boy! And at first we thought Sam looked more like his mom, but after seeing these pics of the two so close together, the tiny tot totes has his dad's almond-shaped eyes!

Wife Jennifer Garner is busy promoting Draft Day, so it looks like the Gone Girl star is on daddy duty for the next few days. And speaking of that, when are we going to get our first peek at Ben as Nick Dunne? Ever since we found out that Ben was playing the lead, we've been kinda obsessed with any tidbit of news about the flick. In case you didn't know, it's the big screen adaptation of Gillian Flynn's best-selling novel which is about a woman who mysteriously disappears on the day of her wedding anniversary. Of course, Ben's character is the police's main suspect, but not everything is what it seems...

A few lucky folks at CinemaCon in Vegas saw the trailer late last month, and apparently there's a few fight scenes with Nick and wife Amy (Rosamund Pike), we see cops finding a pair of underwear at Nick's office, and finally, towards the end of the trailer, there's a shot of what looks like Amy's body underwater.

We have a feeling we'll be seeing the trailer any day now ... and we can't wait!
