Ok talk about just straight coming out with it!!!

In the  October issue of Details magazine, actor-director Ben Affleck says that the one year he dated Jennifer Lopez and co-starred with her in that bomb of a flick ‘Gigli’ was the low point of his life.


“It was definitely the annus horribilis. I got shorthanded as That Guy — Jennifer Lopez, movies bombed, therefore he must be a sort of thoughtless dilettante, solipsistic consumer, blah blah blah.  I made a bunch of movies that didn’t work. I was ending up in the tabloids. I don’t know what the lesson is, except that you just have to find your compass.”

Ben who is now a father of three and married to Jennifer Garner, says that having a family has geared him towards making smarter career choices.

“I need my work to mean something to me in order for me not to be home,” he said, but conceded that wife Jennifer does do most of the domestic work.

“I don’t want to be a stay-at-home dad,” he said.
