Ben Affleck Chokes Up Admitting He "Didn't Want to Get Divorced"

Ben Affleck fought back tears on Good Morning America when he admitted he never wanted to wind up divorced from Jennifer Garner. “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,” the 47-year-old Affleck said. “It upset me because it meant I wasn’t who I thought I was. And that was so painful and so disappointing in myself.” Affleck and the 47-year-old Garner called it quits in 2015 after three kids and 10 years of marriage before finalizing their divorce in 2018. Earlier this week, Affleck likewise told The New York Times that his divorce is "the biggest regret of my life."
