Earlier this year, Jennifer Garner was pictured driving her ex-husband to a treatment centre for alcohol abuse.

The Justice League actor’s alcohol dependency has been well-documented over the years, having gone to rehab for alcohol addiction on two previous occasions in 2001 and 2017.
Yesterday, Affleck broke his silence for the first time since entering rehab over the summer.
“This week I completed a 40-day stay at a treatment centre for alcohol addiction and remain in outpatient care,” he wrote on Instagram.
“The support I have received from my family, colleagues and fans means more to me than I can say. It’s given me the strength and support to speak about my illness with others.”
In 2012, Affleck spoke to Barbara Walters about his excessive exposure to alcohol as a child, having witnessed his father’s own battle with alcoholism.
“Your strength is inspiring and is supporting me in ways I didn’t think was possible,” he wrote. “It helps to know I am not alone.
“As I’ve had to remind myself, if you have a problem, getting help is a sign of courage, not weakness or failure.”
The National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence states that 17.6 million people suffer from alcohol abuse or dependence, equating to approximately one in every 12 adults.
The NHS estimates that around nine per cent of men and three per cent of women in the UK suffer from alcoholism, according to Drinkaware.
Last year, Affleck expressed his disapproval of Harvey Weinstein following the many allegations of sexual assault that surfaced against the disgraced former producer, saying that he was “saddened and angry that a man that I worked with used this position of power to intimidate, sexually harass and manipulate many women over decades.”However, the actor was later accused of acting “inappropriately” with actor Hilarie Burton while appearing together on MTV’s TRL in 2003, having been filmed groping her breasts at the time.
“I acted inappropriately toward Ms Burton and I sincerely apologise,” he tweeted in response to the criticism.
