Ben Affleck took that Ricky Gervais cheating joke all in stride. When asked by The NY Times about the joke (while introducing Matt Damon at the golden Globes he said—“the only person who Ben Affleck hasn’t been unfaithful to”) he said it “did not trouble him. It’s the way Ricky Gervais perceives me, I suppose,” Ben says laughing. “Whatever. I’ve had jokes made at my expense before. It’s part of the deal.”

And then there was that Jennifer Garner Vanity Fair article. “Jen’s great. She’s a great person. We’re on great terms. I just saw her this morning, so that’s the reality that I live in.” And Jennifer did alert Ben to the article. “She felt like she wanted to discuss it and get it out there and get it over with,” the actor recalled. “So she could say, ‘Look, I already talked about it — I don’t want to do it again.’”
