Ben Affleck Just Might Be The Douchiest Douche Of All!

6/29/2014 10:00 AM PDT, by
Prepare yourselves to feel sad and weird and creeped out and just a plethora of other bad feelings, because Mark Ruffalo has some bad news for us all. Because remember when he did "13 Going on 30" with Jennifer Garner, and it was so cute and precious and wonderful? It turned out that it was equally wonderful in real life, because Mark and Jennifer made pretty good friends. But do you know what happened? Mark will tell you what happened.

Here's what he said during a recent appearance on "Watch What Happens Live" about working with Jennifer, and if they were still friends:

“We had a great time together and I think we would. But then Ben came on the scene and that was the end of that.”

And then the show's host, Andy Cohen, got all jokey and asked if Ben Affleck didn't "allow her to have male friends," but instead of laughing or denying it, Mark just shrugged and said that it was "sad" that they weren't friends anymore. And do you know what else is sad? This whole sorry situation.

If Ben Affleck is so insecure about himself or his relationship that he doesn't want his wife to have friends who are male, then that's kind of pathetic, isn't it? He shouldn't have any control at all over who Jennifer is friends with, and if he does, well, then this just got a million times more sad.

So can someone start one of those online petitions for Jennifer Garner? You can just title it "RUN GIRL RUN" or something. That would be fine.

...except for the fact Jennifer Garner has many male friends she's been photographed with and talked about in the last 10 years. However that fact doesn't fit the narrative of your hatchet job so it gets left out.

Also Jennifer and Ben made Daredevil before she made 13 Going On 30. While they didn't date then, she was friends with Ben before Mark so Ben couldn't have just, "come along" after as Mark says.

An additional thought I just had.

If you actually believe this, what does that say about what you think of Jennifer Garner?

She is a very intelligent woman. A mother, an actress, producer and child advocate among other things. Do you really think Ben or any man could control who she is friends with? Do you believe she would allow that?

I for one have a greater opinion of her than that. I am sorry that once again you have a low opinion on a fellow woman. Perhaps one day you will raise women up instead of trying to hold them down.

I do not find it at all possessive of Ben to not want his wife to have male friends. And if I recall, Ben made very positive comments about his future wife while he was making Daredevil. He and Jennifer admitted publicly that they admired each other and were "friends". Ben was with J-Lo and Jennifer was married to Scott Foley. Their friendship is what led to their romance. So why would he want his wife, or she her husband, to have friendships like that......

Didn't Jennifer Garner leave her husband for another man? Why should he trust her? I mean yea, hang out in a group setting and all. But I don't blame him if he doesn't want them going out alone. Have you seen Mark Ruffalos booty? Nice, lol.

There is no such thing as a male/female friend with people who like each other,especially if they physically good looking. Always someone wants more. Always.

You know who creates a bunch of drama about a married/attached woman not being "allowed" to have male "friends"? Dudes who want to fuck her and whores who are jealous of her stable relationship.

I think he's safe, nobody really wants that.

The story is stupid, but Ben is Gomer Pyle.
