Lula 29 you are as bad as the media. I read the article (the whole thing) and he was talking about the media overexposure 2002-2004. Obiously this is why he keeps his relationship now private, which is smart. I know you are dying to see the Afflecks on the red carpet because you are so interested in them but they are smart to keep their relationship private and not a public, overexposed one because everyone accused JLo and Ben of using their relationship for the publicity (which I do not believe was true). He got burned by the media and public, and doesn't want to have a JLo repeat. I for one agree this is a good tactic. I for one am sick, sick, sick of the Jolie Pitts and the TomKats. When both people are famous in a relationship they risk overexposure of it.

Ben doesn't blame Jennifer Lopez for damaging his career.Ben is talking about the intense Media Scrutiny caused by the high profile relationship he was in. That isn't blaming Jennifer Lopez, it is simply the TRUTH. If there was no relationship then there wouldn't have been a media frenzy to print anything and everything about Ben and Jennifer Lopez.Jennifer Lopez has said the same statement in many interviews. J Lo's career was damaged just as much by all the over exposure they received. Both Ben and J Lo are both living lower key lives because their media over exposure experience. Brangelina and Tomkat are going through the same scrutiny right now. Look at all the rumors that are printed about these couples just so the Tabs can put them on their covers. It is not about telling the truth, it is about what makes money and gets ratings. This what Ben is referring to.

I don't think he was bagging out J-lo, just about how crazy the media got about the relationship.

I read the entire article too, and though he doesn't use Jennifer Lopez's name, he does state "it was probably bad for my career" meaning the relationship with Lopez.He doesn't say the media scrutiny, but the relationship in and of itself as referenced by the it, and thus refers to Lopez. And that's a ridiculous assumption. Ben Affleck is the only thing standing in the way of his greatness, not some woman he decided, and I repeat, DECIDED to call his own. To the point of pursuing her while she was married to someone else.

Regardless if he's blaming failed movies on any one person/time period or just plain overexposure, why can't he just say that he made a few bad movie choices? If a movie is good & appeals to the masses, it will be a hit. What is his excuse for any stinkers he participated in, before & after his "overexposure"? Hopefully, the reporters will stop asking him about that time period, because he just sounds like an ass when he gives those kind of explanations.I wish him luck in the future, though.

Great for setting the record straight Iris1000. We kind of take a little piece and run with it. I like Ben. I think he is trying to mature.

The media... reporters that is, they don't seem to have that much of an imagination when it comes to things. They like to talk about the same things over and over again. Boring. In Ben's case, he seemed to have disappeared for a while from the media. I guess they just want to get closure on the situation. Hopefully. Then move on.

I have read the entire Ben Affleck interview / article at Details Magazine site. The interview is 3 pages long. The Bennifer Era only got half of paragraph if that.... 5 sentences out of 3 pages. Not one time does the interviewer mention Jennifer Lopez's name. The interviewer asked Ben about the Bennifer years of (2002-2004). Ben is answering the question about how being over exposed damaged his career. He didn't say anything about about J Lo. The Interviewer clearly knew Ben was uncomfortable talking about Bennifer. Interviewer worded his question not about the Bennifer Relationship but about that time in Ben's life (The Bennifer Era) is what he called it. The interviewer mentioned Ben winning The CA Poker Tournament in 2004. Ben wasn't with J Lo then. Ben does mention how He, Violet, and Isabella (Matt's daughter), where all sick with colds at the beginning of the interview.Not one time does the Interview mentions Jennifer Lopez. I guess this is a case of the media not wanting to let Bennifer die.

Why is he pulling a Brad Pitt and talking about this 3 years down the pike. Hey Bean, we can read. We remember all the sordid details. JLo should have dumped you long before she did. Shame on you for talking about her now.

Hi Sweetnothings,I think you have a point about the actors being so over exposed that we don't want to see them in the movies. That is true in my case. The media may cover certain actors personal lives so much until you just tire of seeing them. When that happens, the chance that I may go to the movie is greatly reduced, because I may feel that I have already seen enough of them. Certainly kind of iffy at that point.

"No comment" sounds pretty good.Seems like his career was going along pretty good before that relationship (Good acting or not). Or, maybe I should say the way the media covered that relationship.I guess it is tough to see your whole life go down the drain over a relationship, and then the relationship turns out not to be THE relationship for you.
