Ben Affleck is currently on a mea culpa tour where he is letting ex-wife Jennifer Garner understand that he is sorry for screwing up, separating her, and openly humiliating her.
Just recently, the star took a seat with Diane Sawyer on Great Early Morning America, where he admitted that he never ever wished to leave his better half.
Ben likewise amazed numerous by sharing a really individual note that he composed to the mom of his children.
Ben had this to state: “I never thought that I was gonna get divorced. I didn’t want to get divorced. I didn’t want to be a divorced person. I really didn’t want to be a split family with my children. And it upset me because it meant I wasn’t who I thought I was. And that was so painful and so disappointing in myself. Divorce is very painful, and alcoholism is very painful. They just are. If there’s something that your child is suffering, that’s a level of pain that is not easily gotten past, not easily forgiven, not easily forgotten. And it’s hard. You’re not going to avoid causing your kids pain, all pain. Pain is part of life. I take some comfort in that.”
He added: “I’m doing my very, very best… It has to be good enough. I don’t /really have a choice. I have to be the man I want to be at this point. I don’t have any more room for failure of that kind.”
Ben went on to check out the letter he penned to his ex-wife:/” What I wish to state openly and independently is, “Thank you. Thank you for being thoughtful, considerate, responsible, and a great mom and person.”
A source near to Jen talked to Hollywood Life and stated this is how she responded to the letter: “Jen is very impressed that Ben is trying hard to be a better man. It really shows to their kids the person he truly is, and that is someone who has made mistakes but is learning from them and not letting things slip into something even more hurtful for himself and his family. His honest approach really made her feel good. Jen cares very much for Ben and only hopes for the best for him. The fact that he is admitting to his struggles and mentioned his biggest regret was losing her, although it is sad, it is also something she really appreciates hearing.”
The expert went on to state that while she values the message, they will not return.
The family pal stated: “It’s not going to lead to them getting back together, but it’s going to improve their friendship that they have been trying to work on while being co-parents. Seeing him fight his demons that she has wanted him to fight for so long shows that her words haven’t gone unheard. She really respects him a lot more than what she has over the last couple of years. It is inspiring for Jen to see how Ben is changing his life for the better.”
Could he pull a Brad Pitt resurgence?
