Despite their 2017 divorce after 12 years of marriage, Hollywood's 'All-American Girl' has stood by Affleck's side for years. "The biggest regret of my life is this divorce," Affleck earlier told The New York Times. "Shame is really toxic. There is no positive byproduct of shame. It's just stewing in a toxic, hideous feeling of low self-worth and self-loathing."
