He Has Questionable Tattoos 

The decisions Ben Affleck has made regarding tattoos could be better. He shocked everyone when he inked a gigantic tattoo covering his entire back depicting a phoenix rising from the flames after he broke up with Jennifer Garner. However, this was not the only tattoo that had raised eyebrows. With a fake ID when he was 16, he got the name of his girlfriend tattooed on his right hip, which he eventually covered up with a dolphin. 

He Once Won a Poker Tournament

Even though Affleck probably doesn’t need the money, in 2004, he won a staggering $356,400 in prize money participating in a three-day knock-out no-limit Texas Hold ’em tournament. There were almost 90 participants at the event, and Affleck won this prize by beating them all. 

If you fancy your luck at such a tournament, with the rise in popularity of online gaming, you can find an online casino wherever you are in the world. For example, Indian players can access thousands of casino games, including slot machines, blackjack, and poker. When signing up for a new site, there is often a range of generous welcome bonuses, such as a 100% deposit bonus up to ₹60,000 or even a ₹126,000 deposit bonus plus 150 free spins! If you are a new player, you should look at reviews to identify the casinos that offer the best casino bonuses. If you enter a poker tournament, you’ll want to channel your inner Ben Affleck to increase your chances of winning.

He is a Die-hard Fan of the Boston Red Sox

We all have our favourite sports teams we cheer on, but Ben Affleck takes his love of the Boston Red Sox to a whole new level. He is such a die-hard fan that during the production of Gone Girl, he shut down the set over having to wear a New York Yankees hat. In the middle of filming Gone Girl, several days of production ceased due to a stalemate between Affleck and Fincher. It was Fincher’s wish for Affleck’s character to don a Yankees hat during one of the scenes. There was no way Affleck would represent one of his favourite teams’ rivals.

He Helped Matt Damon Into the Movie Industry

When Affleck was eight and Damon was ten, the pair met and lived two blocks away from one another while attending the same high schools in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Despite their friendship since childhood, Affleck was the one who inspired Damon to pursue a career in film. Having already had a few roles as a child star, Affleck introduced Damon to his New York agent, who subsequently signed him. Since then, the pair have starred in movies such as Field of Dreams, Good Will Hunting, The Last Duel and others, as shown on Matt Damon’s Biography page. 

He’s Played Three Superheroes

Affleck has not only played one superhero, but he has played three! Apart from his portrayal of Daredevil, which was highly praised and widely ridiculed at the same time, and his recent role as Batman, the actor had the opportunity to portray George Reeve. Reeve played the star of the 1950s television series Adventures of Superman, which Affleck performed in Hollywoodland. By doing this, he becomes the first actor to wear both Batman’s and Superman’s costumes on-screen, an accomplishment worth mentioning.
