Ben Affleck

Ben Affleck entered the public spotlight in 1997, with the success of "Good Will Hunting"; which he co-starred and co-wrote with buddy Matt Damon, both eventually winning an oscar for the screenplay. He has since went on to become one of Hollywood's main leading men, starring in such films as: "Dogma", "Chasing Amy", "The Sum of all Fears", "Daredevil", and "Hollywoodland" (for which he won a Lion for Best Actor at the Venice film festival).
While his movie career has on many levels been both a success and a failure, Affleck has gained more fame in his personal life with a series of high-profile romances including: Gweyneth Paltrow and most notably Jennifer Lopez. The public and papparazzi especially had a feild day with "Bennifer", and both celebrities faced much criticism for their respective roles in the movie "Gigli". They would eventually split up, citing the all-too-crazed media attention they were getting at the time, as the cause of their split. Affleck then sparked a romance with his "Daredevil" co-star Jennifer Garner, whom he eventually married and fathered a baby girl.
