Ben Affleck, who has just spent 30 days in rehab, his third in seeking treatment for alcohol-related issues, has emerged in a more refined and healthier avatar of himself. The 'Batman' actor looked incredibly fit and well on Monday as he showed off some new guns, as per reports from Metro.
Just a month ago, Affleck was taken to in-patient treatment by former wife Jennifer Garner, and at the time, he was found to be looking extremely scruffy while harboring a sudden interest for Jack in the Box. It was reported that Affleck was hanging out with his previously rumored girlfriend Shauna Sexton.
On Monday, the actor was spotted clutching an iced drink in his hand while wearing a yellow muscle tee, which he had teamed up with a pair of grey jeans and cool shades. Prior to that, Affleck had been seen multiple times returning to his home with his personal trainer to work out while completing his treatment at the rehab.
Affleck, a father-of-three, was reportedly attending a meeting in downtown LA. Reports also stated that during his stint at the rehab, the actor was occasionally allowed to return home for daily workouts at his Pacific Palisades mansion, accompanied by a coach and therapist.
It was previously reported that the 46-year-old Oscar-winner agreed to undergo professional treatment after Garner begged him to get help. Witnesses said they had seen Garner arriving at his house, carrying a bible and accompanied by a lawyer.
According to reports, Affleck had actually fallen off the wagon a while ago and gotten progressively worse since then. Sources say that the tipping point came two days before her visit when a picture of Ben grabbing a box from a delivery man caught Garner's eye. Inside the box were bottles, a tall blue box, and a brown paper bag.
This is not the first time Affleck has been in rehab. He went there in 2001 for alcohol abuse, and again last December. He even posted a statement on his Facebook page back in 2017 regarding his alcohol addiction. "I have completed treatment for alcohol addiction; something I've dealt with in the past and will continue to confront," his statement read.
"I want to live life to the fullest and be the best father I can be. I want my kids to know there is no shame in getting help when you need it, and to be a source of strength for anyone out there who needs help but is afraid to take the first step," he continued.
